The Laboratory for Cellular & Molecular Engineering serves as a core facility and collaboration space for CBC investigators and their research teams. Its goal is to provide resources and intellectual stimuli to facilitate cell-centric research spanning multiple length scales, from molecules to tissues.
The Laboratory for Cellular & Molecular Engineering provides communal wet-lab space, instrumentation, and scientific consultation in order to achieve this goal. Additions to the lab will be made in the near future to meet the growing needs of the Center for Biomolecular Condensates members. Access to computational resources belonging to specific CBC-affiliated labs is also available to CBC members.
- AKTA pure FPLC
- Biosafety cabinets and incubators for cell culture
- Jasco spectropolarimeter (CD)
- Molecular Devices SpectraMax i3x multi-mode plate reader
- Nikon Eclipse TE2000 microscope
- PTI QuantaMaster fluorometer
- Shimadzu HPLC
- TECAN F200 plate readers (x2)
The Laboratory for Cellular & Molecular Engineering is led by Ammon E. Posey, PhD., CBC assistant director. Posey serves as a scientific consultant for project development and experimental design, including custom instrumentation design and prototyping. He also provides instrument and methods training, and coordinates shared instrument usage.
State-of-the-art and growing computational resources belonging to specific CBC-affiliated labs are available to CBC members. Additional investments in shared computational resources are forthcoming.
CBC not only brings together investigators from engineering and basic sciences but also investigators with a variety of computational expertise. The collective computational expertise of CBC-affiliated investigators is at the disposal of CBC members.
