Current research at Georgia Tech involving the manipulation of cells and cellular components may hold the key to several notable advances. These innovations in protein engineering, neuroscience, and gene targeting and gene therapy increase the potential for research, industrial and medical applications.

Join us to find out how Georgia Tech researchers are:

  • engineering nuclear hormone receptors to control the expression of genes in response to small molecule hormones,
  • characterizing the molecular mechanisms involved in the repair of broken DNA to develop more effective and safe technologies of genome modification, and
  • Investigating how neural groups encode information from the outside world and neural circuits balance plasticity and stability.

This session will feature the following panelists:

Manipulating Cells: Innovative Research at Georgia Tech is the eighth panel in the Blended Research @ the Library series organized by the Faculty Engagement Department of the Georgia Tech Library. Blended Research @ the Library is a panel discussion series focusing on multidisciplinary research. At each session faculty and graduate students from various departments present research in an area that crosses over several disciplines.
