Center for Protease Research Open House

Filed in News & Events by September 24, 2015

Three NDSU’s research laboratories will be hosting concurrent Open House sessions on Monday, September 28th, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to tour the labs, watch demonstrations of key equipment, and enjoy refreshments.

These facilities are available to scientists for research, data analysis, consultations, and teaching purposes. Stop in at our Core Labs during the open house for more information on how these labs can be helpful for your research!

The Core Biology Facility, in QBB 316 and QBB 354, was established in 2003 with funding from the National Institutes of Health and operated by the Center for Protease Research. The manager is Dr. Tao Wang, who joined the Center in April 2011.

The Mass Spectrometry Facility is located in Dunbar 160. It is a newer addition to the NDSU Core Labs and provides access to cutting edge technologies in Mass analysis. Drs. Angel Ugrinov and Ganesh Balasubramanian manage the facility and it offers routine mass spectrometry services such as molecular weight determination of small synthetic molecules, polymers, proteins and can perform a variety of Omics. The spectrometer also has tissue-imaging capability.

The Core Synthesis and Analytical Services Facility, in Dunbar 156, another Center for Protease Research lab, was started in 2008. Dr. Ganesh Balasubramanian is the manager of the facility.

Drs. Wang, Balasubramanian, and Ugrinov will be available to provide tours and answer questions. They will also conduct demonstrations of some equipment during the open house.
