The Scintillon Institute welcomes Professor John Nolan
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.

New Publications in Nature Methods by Scintillon's Jiwu Wang and Nathan Shaner
The "A Bright Monomericgreen Fluorescentprotein Derived From Branchiostoma Lanceolatumpublication" was published in Nature Methods (10, 407-209, 2013)
We report a monomeric yellow-green fluorescent protein, mNeonGreen, derived from a tetrameric fluorescent protein from the cephalochordate Branchiostoma lanceolatum.Read more
The Scintillon Institute's First Publication in Scientific Reports
The Scintillon Institute's first publication, "Feeder-Free Derivation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells with Messenger RNA," by Jiwu Wang has been published in the new Nature family journal Scientific Reports.
The therapeutic promise of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) has spurred efforts to circumvent genome alteration when reprogramming somatic cells to pluripotency. Our mRNA method uniquely affords unprecedented control over reprogramming factor (RF) expression while obviating a cleanup phase to purge residual traces of vector.Read more
