This integrated, cutting-edge infrared spectroscopic and imaging system will enable unprecedented accuracy in the collection of information about function and formation of proteins, cells and tissues. It will support six independent types of experiments, including very fast measurements (up to 10 nanoseconds) and very low temperature measurements (down to -450 degrees Fahrenheit) of proteins and materials. It will also provide chemical imaging of single living cells.
This advanced system will have broad applications in biology, chemistry, material science and bio-engineering, including drug-protein interactions, development of vaccines, bioenergy and cancer diagnosis.
"Work in these areas is truly cutting edge and I congratulate Dr. Xie and her colleagues on this award," said Dr.
The system will be housed in the new
