UW Molecular Biology Professor Don Jarvis

The National Institutes of Health has selected to highlight on its web page research conducted by Don Jarvis, professor in the UW Department of Molecular Biology.

The website highlights health-related projects supported by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding. The article focuses on Jarvis' studies of "factories" made of virus-infected moth cells that produce large quantities of human-like proteins used in research and in medicines.

Jarvis conducts research to better understand and improve these cost-effective cellular factories. His co-investigator is Michael Tiemeyer, associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Georgia.

"The ARRA grant allowed for a quantum leap in our analytical capability," says Jarvis. "And without it, I wouldn't have had funding for this project. That's the bottom line."
