Pagliarini Lab members attend mitochondrial disease walk, interact with patients

It’s easy for scientists toiling in a laboratory to forget the impact their work might have on those outside the important science they are performing. However, events hosted by the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation have enabled many members of the Pagliarini Lab to connect with those who may directly benefit from the findings of their research: patients with mitochondrial disease.

Biochemistry’s state-of-the-art imaging facilities benefit campus researchers and students

Imaging is a powerful tool in many biochemists’ repertoire. The Department of Biochemistry is home to a large collection of equipment and facilities, including the Biochemistry Optical Core (BOC) and upcoming cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) facility, that allows scientists to pursue their many imaging endeavors.
