When researchers Emma Greig, Max Witynski and collaborators set up camp in the Sonoran Desert, they were interested in one animal in particular—a bird, called a verdin.
From flying a drone on mars to developing mRNA vaccines, scientific understanding and modern medicine have made incredible progress. However, when it comes to biology, some of the most basic questions remain hotly debated. For example, how do cells sense temperature?
Researchers at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) and Biological Sciences Division have developed a combined imaging and machine learning technique that can, for the first time, measure a metabolic process at both the cellular and sub-cellular levels.
In the four years since its opening, the UChicago Cyclotron Facility has made canonical and novel radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals more accessible, stimulating nuclear medicine research at UChicago and beyond.
