And I happened to listen to a seminar where the speaker was describing this protein from a jellyfish. Because it was fluorescent, shining light of one color on it allowed it to convert that light to another color. You could see wherever that protein was by seeing where that second color was.
Contact Us,With a crocodile’s calm grin, Ricardo Corona rises from his chair near the end of a long table of coiffed women and conservatively suited men, grabs a microphone, and tells a roomful of college students why they should elect him a Florida circuit court judge. “I was mainly in business before law school,” says Corona, who could pass for an ex football player with his shaved head and tan suit hanging from linebacker wide shoulders. “I was a banker for 15 years.
It’s fair to say Valeria Silva Merea’s career began with a splash. Just four days before the Peruvian native boarded a plane bound for medical school in New York, she was in Beijing swimming in the 2008 Olympic Games. She broke the Peruvian national record for the 100 meter breaststroke, shaving two seconds off the time she swam in Athens in 2004..
“I knew the sensitivity of the date, and sure enough it was a Swedish accent and everything that followed,” he said.What followed was the news that he had shared the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry with two other scientists for inventing a new and more powerful method of capturing three dimensional images of biological molecules in atomic detail.Frank and his fellow winners, Richard Henderson of Cambridge University and Jacques Dubochet at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, developed the field of cryo electron microscopy, in which powerful electron microscopes are used to more clearly study frozen biomolecules.When molecules are frozen, electron microscopes can reveal the fuzzy two dimensional outlines of individual molecules. Frank devised methods that turn thousands of such images into a finely detailed three dimensional representation.Increasing numbers of structural biologists are now using cryo electron microscopy to visualize larger and more complex molecules at atomic resolution than possible with older techniques. Scientists harness these three dimensional snapshots to understand how specific molecules cause human disease, and how to design more targeted drugs.Frank, 77, joined the Columbia faculty in 2008.
RPA, Santa Monica, Calif., created a “Something New to Crave” theme for the launch last fall that started with TV but moved into a photo sharing blitz. Disneyland visitors could have their photos taken with the CR V and retrieve the photos online. RPA bought boards at 86 malls in 10 cities..
