  • Graduate wins prestigious biomedical imaging award

    Jun 22, 2016

    Congratulations to SMB alumna Adriana Lippy for garnering 2016 BioImage Award for Medical Education. After graduating from WSU, Adriana worked for Seattle non-profit research institute then studied medical illustration at the University of Dundee. Adriana is currently working at the Fred Hutchinson Institute while doing freelance illustration work.

  • WSU researchers watch skin cells ‘walk’ to wounds

    Jun 09, 2016
    Skin cells typically spend their entire existence in one place on your body. But Washington State University researchers have seen how the cells will alter the proteins holding them in place and move to repair a wound.

  • Summer Microscopy ‘Camp’ will enhance research efforts of three SMB labs

    May 17, 2016
    Over the summer months, SMB researchers in the Carabeo, Jones and Konkel labs will take their cells and reagents to the Advanced Imaging Centre (AIC) at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Research Labs in Virginia. There they will study how cells move, how pathogens invade mammalian cells and how invasion impacts the adhesion systems of a host cell, using some of the new bioimaging technologies being developed by Nobel Laureate Dr. Eric Betzig and others. The mission of AIC is to “make cutting-edge imaging technologies developed at Janelia widely accessible, and at no cost, to scientists before the instruments are commercially available”. The Carabeo, Jones and Konkel labs each submitted proposals to AIC last year and all three were accepted. The Jones lab is currently at Janelia. Carabeo and Konkel lab personnel will begin their studies in July and August.
