What happens when academia and industry come together to share their passion for innovation and discovery? This synergy was sparked at the MCB Industrial Affiliates Program (IAP) inaugural symposium.
A group of UC researchers received funding to build the NexGen 7T functional MRI (fMRI) that will "provide the highest resolution images of the brain ever obtained, able to focus on a region the size of a poppy seed."
Assistant Professor of Genetics, Genomics and Development Hernan Garcia and Assistant Adjunct Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology Jacob Corn received New Innovator Awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The award supports highly creative, innovative research that could have implications for human health.
We have just learned that MCB Emeritus Professor Satyabrata Nandi passed away on July 29th, 2017 in his home in Berkeley at the age of 86. He received his PhD from UC Berkeley in 1957, and ultimately joined us as a faculty member. His career in cancer research and teaching spanned over 40 years and he is still remembered fondly in the department.
