NIH Highlights Work by UW Professor
January 18, 2011 — 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."
