Nov. 12, 2020—Vanderbilt contributes molecular imaging data of kidney to the Human BioMolecular Atlas Program, a consortium of 18 diverse collaborative research teams across the United States and Europe.
Nov. 1, 2019—Researchers at Vanderbilt's Biomolecular Multimodal Imaging Center are working to create a high-resolution, three-dimensional “atlas” of the human kidney that will help future researchers understand what exactly goes wrong when kidneys fail.
Oct. 31, 2019—An unprecedented view of bacterial products within infected tissues opens new opportunities to explore infection biology and devise novel therapeutic strategies.
Dec. 21, 2018—Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos surprised VIRG’s Linda Forceno and Maureen Casey at the Mass Spectrometry Research Center with the Heart and Soul Staff Appreciation Award just prior to Winter Break.
Sep. 28, 2018—Biochemistry professor Richard Caprioli, director of the Mass Spectrometry Research Center, and Jeff Spraggins, research assistant professor of biochemistry, and their team will build a platform to molecularly characterize cells.
Jun. 8, 2018—Recent advances in imaging technology are enabling Vanderbilt scientists to gain unprecedented views of how molecules, cells and tissues work together, yielding radical new insights into the causes, treatment and prevention of disease.
Mar. 28, 2018—An improved technology enables high-throughput protein identification in imaging mass spectrometry, aiding proteomics research.
Mar. 15, 2018—A new integrated imaging approach makes it possible to probe the molecules involved in invasive infections and can be broadly applied to any health or disease state.
Nov. 3, 2016—Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus — two pathogens that frequently co-infect the lungs of patients with cystic fibrosis — appear to cooperate with each other, Vanderbilt investigators have discovered. When pseudomonas is starved for metal by the host, it shuts down the production of factors that would normally kill staph, promoting a co-infection.
Aug. 11, 2016—The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has awarded a major renewal grant to continue the National Research Resource for Imaging Mass Spectrometry at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.
Jan. 14, 2016—Researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center have received more than $11 million in new grant support aimed at slowing the growing burden of diabetes.
May. 26, 2015—The 2015 Vanderbilt University Medical Center Academic Enterprise Faculty Awards, which were presented during the May 19 Spring Faculty meeting, included awards for Excellence in Teaching and Outstanding Contributions to Research.
