Next Generation Gene Imaging Grant

In a collaboration between Albert Einstein College of Medicine, the Janelia Research Campus of HHMI, and the University of California, Berkeley, Assistant Professor of Genetics, Genomics and Development, Xavier Darzacq will lead the Berkeley component of a large NIH grant they have received. Using specifically adapted powerful microscopes, the researchers hope to peer into living cells and reveal mechanisms that turn genes on and off in real time.
