Research Round-Up

Flipping a Color Switch — Thanks to fluorescent proteins (FPs), researchers now have a palette of colors to choose from when imaging cellular processes. Such photactivatable FPs enabled the winners of this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry to carry out the super-resolution microscopy that earned them the prize.  Dr. Vladislav Verkhusha has engineered more than a dozen photoswitchable FPs for... read more


Reprogramming Stem Cells — In a review paper published in the July 17, 2014 issue of NatureDr. Paul Frenette and colleague Dr. Daniel Lucas discuss recent advances in producing blood stem cells by reprogramming adult cells to develop into induced pluripotent stem cells that would then differentiate into blood stem cells?also known as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Bone marrow transplants involve harvesting... read more


Looking Deep Into Tissues — The National Institute of General Medical Sciences has awarded nearly $1.3 million over four years to Dr. Vladislav Verkhusha to develop new types of fluorescent proteins that allow for non-invasive imaging of living cells, deep tissues and whole animals. Dr. Verkhusha’s lab already developed proteins that fluoresce in the near-infrared (NIR) window—a range of... read more
