advancing therapy discoveries

The Biological Irradiation research laboratory provides investigators the ability to examine the effects of radiation treatment upon particular models such as yeast, fruit flies, nematodes, zebra fish, mammalian cells, and small animals. This provides investigators the capability to understand the effect of ionizing radiation on critical cellular responses, such as DNA repair, cellular proliferation and inflammation. In addition, investigators will be able to develop novel therapies using combination treatments of irradiation and small molecules.
