Foundation donates $6500 to Pediatric Cancer Research
With this donation Dr. Palis and his research team will be able to take their research to a new level by purchasing a state-of-the-art cell electroporation system called The NEON system (Life Technologies). One of the goals of their research is to test the function of specific genes in the production of blood cells. These studies are tricky because they require the team to introduce parts of genes into cells using a very powerful electrical pulse. This piece of equipment will allow them to do this.
