Year 3

The TSRI Shared Laboratory and Training Center serves the public by providing laboratory tours, public lectures, and special events for public education. New scientific collaborations were established in the past year and there are currently more than 40 active collaborations with local and international researchers. These groups published a remarkable 19 scientific papers last year.
The center remains active in Cell Biology, Genomics, and High-Throughput Screening (HTS). Improvements have been to the Chemical Screening Facility which provides a more user friendly space. The equipment is in constant use, and new collaborators are learning how to use HTS and Chemical Screening in their studies.
The training courses now include training in induced pluripotent stem cell technology. The courses included training for several Bridges to Stem Cell Research groups, local graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and a group of researchers from the NIH’s Chemical Screening Center.
We plan to maintain our level of involvement with the public, and will participate in events organized by interested lay people.
