When they learned about a super-resolution microscope custom-made by researchers with the College of Engineering(who were located next door), the RBC provided a natural way to connect and develop pilot experiments to look at DNA sequences in a 3D structure. The level of resolution was not possible five years ago and is a major breakthrough, De La Fuente says.....It’s valuable access to a lot of people who are doing some very interesting things, and all of a sudden......►Read More
What sets this cell-based production system apart from the others is that it’s quick, easy to use and versatile in that it can be applied to multiple vaccine types; for example, Newcastle and, potentially, influenza vaccines, and both animal and human vaccines,” said Stice, director of the RBC. ...►Read More
Peroni and Stice are leading a large animal research project funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. The group they lead is a multidiscipline and multi-institutional group actively working on bone tissue engineering.
