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.
