A Google search for drug discovery Grants totaling $860,000 fund cutting-edge genetic sequencing By ALICIA ROBERTS Jason Gagliano, a biology graduate student, works in a Wake Forest lab. It’s what scholars dream about: getting to work with the latest technology and leading researchers in the industry to develop a scientific breakthrough. For Jason Gagliano, a…
PLOS (The Public Library of Science) is a non-profit publisher and advocacy organization recently published an article focusing on the work of Reynolds Professor of Developmental Neuroscience Susan Fahrbach and graduate student researcher Scott Dobrin (PhD. 2011). Fahrbach and her lab group have discovered that it is possible to train honey bees by SHOWING them….
Nickolay Hristov, Professor with the UNC Center for Design Innovation and Wake Forest Biology Research Professor, does amazing research on bats. His work was featured on National Public Radio (NPR) weekly program Science Friday. Nick received his PhD. from Wake Forest in 2008 and works closely with Professor William Conner’s laboratory. In this Science Friday…
Dr. Eric Johnson’s research on Drosophila provides insight into human diabetes treatment. His laboratory’s findings were recently featured by the WFU News Service and the scientific journal Genetics. Complexity doesn’t stem from having different genes or special nerve cells. The basic biophysical, biochemical makeup is the same. The difference in complexity is in the number…
