BSL3 Flow Sorter for Human Pathogens of Global Significance

Principal Investigator: David Russell

Department of Microbiology and Immunology
Sponsor: NIH-Office of the Director (OD)
Grant Number: 1S10OD032135-01
Title: BSL3 Flow Sorter for Human Pathogens of Global Significance
Project Amount: $362,340
Project Period: March 2022 to February 2023

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): 

The instrument is intended to support both established BSL3 research activities, including programs on Mycobacterium tuberculosis, HIV-1 and influenza, in addition to emerging research programs in SARS-CoV-2.

We anticipate that the establishment of this capacity on campus will provide opportunities for trainees, promote collaboration and innovation, foster development of new research relevant to the goals of the NIH, and increase the profile of Cornell University as a center for research in host-pathogen interactions of significance to current challenges to Global Health.
