Program Highlights for year 2006

Multi-Assays of Cellular Kinase Activities

Working collaboratively, research groups at the Chicago MRSEC have developed new label-free analytical systems that utilize ultra-small sample sizes of cellular lysate, yet allow these single samples to be assayed for multiple kinase activities.

MRL Faculty Milestones and Recognitions

Several MRL Faculty members were honored this summer and early fall for achievements in and significant contributions to their respective fields.
