Writer: Lori Johnston / Content Contributor: Charlene Betourney / Pic: Davis Tucker

UGA’s expertise in fields such as regenerative medicine and veterinary medicine, combined with partnerships with Emory and Georgia Tech, gives the RBC a strong presence at industry and international meetings. The RBC provides training and education to researchers from around the world, and research findings and papers have appeared in more 1,000 journals and publications.

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......"

"The use of cell lines for the manufacture of viral vaccines offers additional advantages in the event of a human flu pandemic. Currently, fertilized chicken eggs are used to host the flu virus. This more-than-60-year-old process is not only time consuming, but in the event of a pandemic, it could...."

CAES honors grads

RBC James Lauderdale is working to understand the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the central nervous system’s development, with particular emphasis on its visual aspects.

 

Mark your calendars! Since everyone enjoyed last year's format, the day will be centered on round-table discussions concerning funding and research external/internal collaboration themes. Check your email for surprise guest!

 

The college recognized its best and brightest graduate students at the 2016 Graduate Student Recognition Reception. Forrest Goodfellow, PHD student working with Dr. Stice, won the E. Broadus Browne Research Award, a first time win for the Stice lab.
