Now at Red's Spinal Cord
Research Laboratory, UWA.
|Past Research Projects:|
|Cell biology, molecular biology and immunological techniques are being used to enhance the survival of normal donor male myoblasts after injection into dystrophic hosts in Myoblast Transfer Therapy (MTT) experiments, as a potential treatment for myopathies such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Techniques include tissue culture (primary culture and established cell lines), hybridoma technology, tissue sectioning (frozen and paraffin), fluorescence microscopy and image analysis (including time lapse), FACS analysis, immunodepletion, immunocytochemistry, PAGE and western blotting, quantitative DNA analysis using phosphorimaging systems (and analysis), Southern analysis, plasmid cloning and purification.|
