Program Highlights

Multi-Assays of Cellular Kinase Activities

Working collaboratively, research groups at the Chicago MRSEC have developed new label-free analytical systems that utilize ultra-small sample sizes of cellular lysate, yet allow these single samples to be assayed for multiple kinase activities.

The Eyes Have It

Researchers in the Center for the Science and Engineering of Materials (CSEM) at the California Institute of Technology are developing a new class of biomaterials for use in surgery and regenerative medicine.

Forensic Science As A Springboard - OU RET's Take Modules on the Road to Metrotech High School

"CSI is a hot topic, and that makes it fascinating to kids. But it's also applied science, and it's a powerful way to get kids involved in the scientific process: carefully documenting observations and analyzing results." Merle Hunsaker, RET and science teacher.
