Equipment Donation to Research Lab

The Napoleone Foundation donated a new data analysis workstation to the University of Rochester’s Center for Pediatric Biomedical Research. This picture shows research technician Kate Fegan, M.S. performing analysis of flow cytometry data on the equipment. Learning, over her shoulder, is MD/PhD student Jerry Saunders II, M.S. Both work in the lab headed by Dr. James Palis. This new workstation is more than 10X faster than the previous machine in use, which also would sometimes crash during complex analyses. These analyses allow the team to compare and contrast the expression of multiple proteins on the cell surface, and within cells that constitute complex populations representing normal and disease conditions.
