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 biology graduate student, it’s a reality.
Gagliano is part of the physics department team developing a technology called Next-Gen Lab-on-Bead. The tool uses next-generation genetic sequencing to make the drug development process thousands of times faster, much like a Google search.
