Coming up

Is SPR for you? Find out next week!
Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) is a cutting-edge technique for monitoring the structural changes when proteins bind to other molecules. BioCore makes an SPR instrument, and we have one at UAF. A BioCore scientist will be at UAF during the first week of October to explain the technology, the instrument, and the potential applications. Please come and find out whether the BioCore SPR might be helpful in your area of research. Contact Jestina Kusina, ffjfk1@uaf.edu, for times, appointments, or information.
