Cellular Biology Research Node
Health Sciences Building
The Cellular Biology Research Node has been designed to support the development and use of 3D tissue models. It houses a flow cytometer for phenotyping and performing functional testing of cells and bacteria; a Seahorse Analyzer for evaluation of metabolic activity of cells; and an Incucyte for live-cell imaging of cells and tissues in culture.
Several research labs are affiliated with the TEAM Hub Cellular Biology Research Node as users, collaborators, and/or technology developers. The following labs, which include experts in immunology, microbiology, and mucosal and disease biology, are directly involved in the characterization of cellular processes that contribute to tissue homeostasis and disease:
Developing physiological relevant 3D models requires a detailed understanding of the location and frequency cell populations found in each tissue. The TEAM Hub has the required instrumentation to characterize cellular phenotypes and function at the single cell and population levels.
Are you curious about the fundamental mechanisms of different diseases or passionate about applying data analysis to bioscience? Are you an engineer eager to become involved with tissue engineering or a chemist interested in biomaterials? Do you want to explore how light interacts with matter, discover how it can uncover the fundamental mechanisms behind cellular responses, and thereby improve our understanding of tissue structures? Would you like to work in an exciting, fast-paced, ambitious, and friendly research environment?
If you are interested in working with us, please view our current openings or contact one of the TEAM Hub core members to inquire about potential unlisted opportunities.
Are you interested in testing the waters of academic research? Would you like to gain invaluable experience working on interesting projects with a dynamic group? The TEAM Hub offers opportunities for undergraduate students from different programs. See the following openings for details.
