Good morning, fellow flowers! We have an excited speaker coming up soon - February 10th at 4:00 pm, CSU. Dr. Mark Zabel, from Colorado State University, will be discussing how he uses flow cytometry to study prion diseases (specifically, Chronic Wasting Disease and the human form PrP in mice). This is a fascinating topic by a GREAT speaker and I hope that you all can attend. Goodies will be provided by Beckman Coulter. Please forward to all interested parties!! 

Northern Colorado, Flow Cytometry Users Group Meeting, Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Dr. Mark Zabel 
Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology Department 

" In vitro knockdown of prion protein using lipopeptide-delivered siRNA" In vitro knockdown of prion protein using lipopeptide-delivered siRNA" 



Come and learn how flow cytometers are being used in research! What a great way to expand your understanding of flow cytometry applications and learn about relevant diseases! He will be discussing his use of the flow cytometer to study prions, (infectious proteins). Common prion-related diseases include Mad Cow Disease, Chronic Wasting Disease and scrapie in animals, human prion protein PrP.
