  5. High-Throughput Microdevice for Temporal Single-Cell Analysis

    SBC: INFINITESIMAL, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION: Single-cell studies are essential for biochemical characterization of heterogeneous cell behaviors. However, studying direct correlation between cell input (transfection) and output (biochemical analysis) is still challenging due to lack of high throughpu methodologies with cell selectivity and high enough sensitivity. The tool proposed here is a microwell device that will allow tempo ...

  7. Novel Small Molecule Multi-targeted Ligands as Therapeutics for the Treatment of


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a common autosomal recessive motor neuron disorder is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. SMA is caused by the loss of the survival motor neuron1 (SMN1) gene. SMN2, a nearly identical paralog, is present in all SMA patients but differs by a critical nucleotide that alters exon 7 splicing efficiency. This results in low ...
