Yurong Gao, Ph.D wins ABRF Poster Award at the 2019 ABRF
Dr. Yurong Gao, Director of the Multiphoton Shared Resource Laboratory, won a poster award at the 2019 ABRF conference. Her abstract was entitled K-means Spectral Unmixing for Multi-channel Imaging and Image Analysis Platform at a Core Facility. This award provided her the opportunity to do a presentation to a broad audience at the end of the conference. See more information at the ABRF site: https://abrf.org/awards/abrf-poster-awards
Jacquelyn Lillis, MS Wins Staff Poster Award at UNYTE Un-Meeting
Jacquelyn Lillis, Bioinformatician at the Genomics Research Center and Center for Pediatric Biomedical Research at the University of Rochester, won the Staff Poster Award at the Translational Genomics & Proteomics Un-Meeting, sponsored by the UNYTE Translational Science Network (UNYTE) at the University of Rochester Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute (UR CTSI), University of Rochester Medical Center, on March 13, 2019, for the poster “Single-cell transcriptome analysis of embryonic hematopoietic progenitor cells reveals erythro-myeloid lineage heterogeneity.”
The UNYTE Translational Research Network, a project of the CTSI, is a consortium of 19 biomedical and academic research centers performing clinical and translational research in the Upstate New York and surrounding regions. This spring’s Un-Meeting brought together researchers from across UNYTE institutions to discuss and develop new, innovative and effective ideas for genomics and proteomics translational research.

New Investments in Shared Resources Strengthen Research Capabilities
The Shared Resource Laboratories (SRL) have invested $3 million in the last year in new state-of-the art instrumentation. These advanced technologies will enhance the University’s research capabilities in microscopy, mass spectrometry, genomics, and flow cytometry.
The SRL, which is directed by Tim Bushnell, Ph.D., provide leading edge services and instrumentation to researchers across the University. The new acquisitions were made possible through a combination of internal investment, NIH grant supplements, and NIH SIG grants.

UR’s Genomics Research Center leads a national technology study on single-cell Genomics
John M. Ashton, Co-Director of UR’s Genomics Research Center (GRC) presented the results comparing single-cell RNA sequencing platforms at the annual meeting of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) Conference in April 2018. The ABRF’s Genomics Research Group (GRG), that included members from across the nation, conducted the comparison.
