6.14.21 Group presents at International Society for Hyaluronan Sciences Conference Our lab presented two talks at the 2021 virtual ISHAS conference. Dorothea detailed her recent work on isolating heavy chain HA in a talk that can be seen here and Felipe presented his project on optimizing nanopore analysis of HA, which can be seen here. Great job!
5.16.21 Congratulations to new alum Lucy Vaughn Lucy earned her BS this weekend as part of the inaugural graduating class of Wake Forest Engineering! She will now move on to AstraZeneca as a Development Engineering Associate. Congrats and thank you for all your contributions to the lab!
4.29.21 New paper in Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine The group has a new paper accepted in Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine detailing nanopore analysis of hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC) modifications in human genomic DNA! We report that the established decrease in hmC found in breast cancer DNA is associated with advanced stage disease rather than early. Congratulations to Osama and all authors!
4.29.21 New paper published today in ACS Nano Congratulations to Komal and all contributing authors on the publication of a manuscript in ACS Nano! The paper describes the implementation of our selective solid-state nanopore assay in the detection and quantification of sequence motifs in single-strand DNA and RNA genomes. We use HIV RNA as a model to demonstrate viral detection.
3.15.21 Hyaluronan services now available We are happy to announce that we are now offering hyaluronan services to the research community. This includes high-fidelity isolation from diverse biological matrices and molecular weight distribution analysis from as little as 10 ng of total glycan. We can also perform quantitation using an ELISA-like assay. See our new services page for more details!
1.26.21 Welcome to our newest lab member! A big welcome to Sara Abu Jalboush, the newest addition to our lab! Sara is in the Cancer Biology program and will be working on epigenetics applications of solid-state nanopore technology. Her expertise will bring a new perspective to the lab's work.
