We are pleased to announce the opening of the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center-supported Single Cell Analysis Core (SCAC). Single cell analysis has recently shown great promise in developing novel understanding of cell populations in health and disease. This new initiative, co-directed by Evan Keller and Sunitha Nagrath, is designed to facilitate Cancer Center investigators with experimental design, rare cell procurement and single cell DNA and RNA analysis. Current post doctoral fellow and former chemical engineering PhD student Rhonda Jack will oversee rare cell isolation from samples, using MEMS technologies developed in the Nagrath lab.
