Yokogawa provides a Single Cellome™ System SS2000 (one of eight world wide) to the Endres and Friedland lab to investigate mitochondrial function/dysfunction in Alzheimer disease and aging. We are so excited to work with this elaborated confocal which is allows to prep cell organelles from single cells.
Together with Prof. Albena Dinkova-Kostova from the University of Dundee, we received funding from the Scotland-RLP Life Science Research Alliance. One of Albenas PhD students, Miro Novak, will investigate the effects of novel NRF-2 ligands in the Friedland lab. We are looking forward to this collaboration. Check out Albenas paper in Nature Reviews Drug Discovery about the therapeutical potential of NRF-2 ligands.
