Slavov Research Featured on Cover of C&EN
BioE Associate Professor and Allen Distinguished Investigator Nikolai Slavov’s research on “Individual cells’ proteins vary. Single-cell proteomics can now show how” was featured on the cover of the C&EN journal.
Measurements of cell mixtures can hide differences between cells that might be important in biology or disease studies. Researchers have long had tools to look at nucleic acids at the single-cell level, but studying single cells’ proteins hasn’t been as easy. Now single-cell proteomics is possible too, thanks to new methods in sample processing and analysis. Researchers are putting single-cell proteomics to work in fields like developmental biology, cell biology, cancer biology, and neuroscience.
