Grant effort results in Laser Microdissection System
Ramiro Malgor, a member of the biomedical engineering program faculty, spearheaded a successful effort to secure funding for the acquisition of a Laser Microdissection System through an Ohio University 1804 Fund grant. Malgor is an assistant professor of pathology in biomedical sciences in the College of Osteopathic Medicine.
The equipment will allow investigators to analyze small regions of tissue samples (down to a single cell) to probe the molecular mechanisms of disease and develop new therapeutics and diagnostics.
Others involved included BME faculty members Fabian Benencia, Monica Burdick, Doug Goetz, John Kopchick, Kelly McCall, and Sarah Wyatt. Also involved were the molecular and cellular biology program, the Diabetes Research Initiative, and university faculty members Karen Coschigano, Susan Evans, Vijay Nadella, and Felicia Nowak.
