Dr. Michael Potter, ‪#‎NCI‬, used his microscope to study mouse tumors and the immune system. He won a Lasker Award for his research and the library of tumors he made available to other scientists around the world. http://1.usa.gov/1J2sUpZ p 2 Potter’s plasmacytomas were adapted to tissue culture, becoming the basis for hybridoma technology, the fusion of an immortal plasmacytoma cell with a normal antibody-producing cell to create a monoclonal antibody—an antibody that focuses on a specific type of molecule.

#NIH IRP #scientist Dr. Ichiji Tasaki never retired and never lost his desire to learn about the #brain:
Few scientists have made as many important discoveries as Dr. Ichiji Tasaki, shown here with his wife and lab partner Nobuko, using many instruments that he made or modified himself. He discovered the function of myelin insulation on nerve cells and explained why nerve impulses are so fast. He clarified how the inner ear turns sound into impulses that the brain can interpret, and pioneered how to observe physical changes in nerves with a method t...

#FlashbackFriday: Would you enter the metabolic chamber? http://1.usa.gov/1HRMCWN
Many scientists at the NIH used the original metabolic chamber—a room constructed as a scientific instrument in which volunteers could live—to study how our bodies use air, food, and water under different conditions. This chamber was developed by Drs. G. Donald Whedon and Russell M. Wilder in 1957 at the NIH's National Institute of Arthritis and Metabolic Diseases (NIAMD), now the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (...
