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.
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.
