William G. Farmerie, Ph.D.
Associate Director

Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research
University of Florida

William G. Farmerie, Ph.D.

Founded in 1988 by the Florida state legislature, the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) is a research support organization, which provides high-end technical services to the research community at the University of Florida, as well as across the State of Florida and beyond.

We recently had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Bill Farmerie, ICBR's Associate Director, about how the Center is using the Applied Biosystems® SOLiD™ System to help researchers find new ways to ask questions and interpret data.

Greg Foltz, M.D. & Anup Madan, Ph.D.

Seattle Neuroscience Institute, Swedish Medical Center

Greg Foltz, M.D. & Anup Madan, Ph.D.

The Swedish Neuroscience Institute established the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment as the first multidisciplinary treatment and research center in the Pacific Northwest dedicated solely to the treatment of brain tumors. Located adjacent to world-class research facilities, the out-patient clinic provides instant access to promising new therapies, offering hope for patients with all stages of brain tumors, including brain cancer.

Genomics scientist Anup Madan and neurosurgeon Greg Foltz are co-directors of the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment, working together to translate the scientific discoveries made in the lab into new clinical approaches in the treatment center. We recently had the opportunity to talk with Dr. Madan and Dr. Foltz about the collaborative work they are doing and how Applied Biosystems is helping scientists and physicians better understand the genomics of brain tumors and more effectively treat the patients afflicted by them.

Dr. Alison Murray

Associate Research Professor, Desert Research Institute

Dr. Alison Murray

The Desert Research Institute (DRI) in Reno, Nevada is a world leader in environmental sciences, with research projects ranging from watershed issues in Nevada to the preservation of China's Terracotta Warriors to assisting the Army with desert terrain issues in the Middle East.

For the past six years, Alison Murray, a molecular microbial biologist and Associate Research Professor at the DRI, has been studying Antarctic organisms in their natural environment in order to better understand the impacts of climate change. We recently talked with Alison about how her team uses the StepOnePlus™ Real-Time PCR instrument from Applied Biosystems to quantify DNA and RNA from organisms in the wintertime waters of the Southern Ocean.

Donna Muzny, MS

Director of Operations, Human Genome Sequencing Center, Baylor College of Medicine

Donna Muzny

The Human Genome Sequencing Center (HGSC) at Baylor College of Medicine was founded in 1996, and played a central role in the Human Genome Project. Currently, the Center is hard at work on the 1000 Genomes project, an international research consortium that is creating a new map of the human genome that will provide a view of biomedically relevant DNA variations at a resolution unmatched by current resources.

As Director of Operations, Donna Muzny is helping to lead the Center's efforts by spearheading its transition from first-generation to second-generation sequencers, including the SOLiD™ System from Applied Biosystems. We recently spoke with Ms. Muzny about her work at the HGSC, and how Applied Biosystems is helping the lab accelerate its research capabilities and make significant strides in deciphering the human genome.

Susan McCarthy, MS

Senior Biological Scientist, H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute

Susan McCarthy

Susan McCarthy is a Senior Biological Scientist in the laboratory of Dr. Timothy Yeatman at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, a leader in the investigation of the gene expression "signatures" (mRNA expression patterns) that define pancreatic, colon, breast, and other cancers. A molecular cell biologist and gene expression expert, she is working to identify cancer-related mRNA signatures in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) patient samples.

We recently had the opportunity to talk with Susan about the lab's current research, the promising results she has achieved so far, and how collaboration with Applied Biosystems is helping the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center to advance the science of predicting, diagnosing, and treating cancer.

Dr. Scott R. Diehl

Dr. Scott R. Diehl is the director of a state-of-the-art laboratory in New Jersey studying pharmacogenomics and the genetics of disease risk. His research focuses on understanding the genetic basis of diseases that have complex etiologies involving both environmental and genetic factors, and the differences among individuals in response to drugs and other therapies.

We recently caught up with Dr. Diehl at the grand opening of the new Applied Biosystems Application Support Center in Foster City, California. We asked him to share his thoughts about his current research, his experience working with Applied Biosystems over the past 20+ years, and how continued collaboration with Applied Biosystems is helping his team advance their science as they strive to unravel the mysteries of complex diseases.

Ronald P. Hart, Ph.D.

Professor and Associate Director of Cell Biology & Neuroscience at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience
Stem Cell Research Center

Dr. Ronald P. Hart

Dr. Ronald P. Hart is recognized as a leading expert in microarray technologies in models of trauma to the central nervous system. Since establishing functional genomics technologies at the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience in 2000, Dr. Hart has trained over 75 national and international scientists in the use of microarrays and actively works in partnership with dozens of researchers throughout the world.

We recently spoke with Dr. Hart about his work at the Keck Center and the newly unveiled New Jersey Stem Cell Research Center at Rutgers, and how Applied Biosystems is helping his group accelerate the pace of research in spinal cord injury, neurotrauma, and other neurological conditions through worldwide collaboration.
