Bring Color to Research through the Next IRIC Lunch and Learn Presentation

February 26, 2019

Shirley Luckhart, of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and the College of Science, will speak at noon Thursday, March 7, in the IRIC Atrium about the CHHE IVIS Imaging Service Center. Her presentation is titled, "The Center for Health in the Human Ecosystem IVIS Imaging Service Center: Your Research in Living Colors."

The Center for Health in the Human Ecosystem (CHHE) IVIS Imaging Service Center can facilitate experimental needs for fluorescence and bioluminescence imaging for a wide range of in vivo applications with plants, small animals (both vertebrates and invertebrates), and microorganisms as well as ex vivo tissue studies.

The service center recently launched a Technology Access Grant (TAG) program, allowing investigators, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and other research group members to use the IVIS® Lumina III Imaging System for sensitive, quantifiable imaging.

Images from the CHHE IVIS® Lumina III can be used for a wide range of research applications, including biomarker localization, in vivo and ex vivo organ and tissue function analyses, host-microbe interaction studies and more.

The presentation is part of the IRIC Lunch and Learn series. These presentations allow students, faculty and staff to share and cross-pollinate ideas in a fun and informal lunchtime setting. All are encouraged to attend and participate in discussion. Free drinks and snacks are also provided.
