The Scintillon Institute Reports the Publication of Research on the Scalable Generation of Universal Platelets from Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC)
The Scintillon Institute Investigator Jiwu Wang and collaborators have published a new publication describing the generation of universal platelets from human induced pluripotent stem cells.Read more
The Scintillion Institute’s Nathan Shaner and his collaborator Ute Hochgeschwender at Central Michigan University became recipients of a National Science Foundation (NSF) BRAIN EAGER grant for developing non-invasive optogenetics based on bioluminescence.Read more
In 2013, The National Institute of Biological Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) of National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded more than $6.4 million for the continuation of the Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) Raman Flow Cytometry for Drug Discovery and Diagnostics.
This multidisciplinary effort is led by Scintillon's Institute Professor John Nolan. The partnership aims to extend the multiparameter capabilities of flow cytometry by measuring Raman spectra from individual cells in flow. We are developing nanoparticle surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) tags, a new generation of spectral flow cytometers that can measure high resolution Raman spectra from individual cells, and software for Raman flow cytometry data analysis.
This project will take advantage of wild-type fluorescent proteins with novel optical properties to be cloned from a broad range of species, including several Great Barrier Reef corals made available through an international collaboration.Read more
We are extremely excited to welcome Professor Nolan to the Scintillon Team! Dr. Nolan is bringing his lab from the La Jolla Bioengineering Institute to join our Scintillon team. His research focus on cytometry will add an exciting new dimension to the research possibilities at the Scintillon Institute.
