FIU biochemistry students and their professor, Yi Xiao, have patented a series of new tests that can quickly, accurately and cost-effectively confirm the presence of cocaine.
BSI researcher and faculty member, Dr. Yuan Liu, was recently granted a U.S. Patent for her invention of a high throughput measurement of DNA base lesion repair capacity in human cell and tissue.
The National Institutes of Health awarded FIU researchers nearly $2 million to study how targeting bacterial DNA can be used to kill antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
Dr. Laura Finzi from Emory College will host a lecture. Her research interests are single-molecule biophysics of transcriptional regulation.
Dr. David Clemmer, Distinguished Professor from Indiana University Bloomington, will host a lecture.
Dr. Mark Birch-Machin from Newcastle University Institute of Cellular Medicine will host a lecture. His research group focuses on the response of human skin to ultraviolet radiation particularly within the context of skin aging and cancer, particularly involving the role of mitochondria.
