On the 19th September 2011, during Lower Silesian Science Festival, NeoLek - Integrated Laboratory of Experimental Oncology and Innovative Technologies organized presentations “Hands on Science", subtitle: "Experimental antitumor therapy – where do drugs come from?" Presentations included two one-hour blocks: "With the eye of the chemist" and "With the eye of the biologist" repeated in three sessions. Presentations were attended by 32 participants - students of Lower Silesian secondary and high schools and were held in the Laboratory of Experimental Antitumor Therapy and in the Laboratory of Biomedical Chemistry.

 

Presentations were preceded by brief introductory lectures on chemical and biotechnological methods for synthesizing new drugs and instrumental analysis of new preparations of potential anticancer activity. Presentation about modern instrumental methods used in drug research involved:

  1. modern methods for molecules separation – usage of high-performance liquid chromatography,
  2. methods for determining molecular weight of molecules, molecules structure research – usage of mass spectrometry,
  3. methods for determining size of macromolecules – usage of method of dynamic laser light scattering.

 

Next, the participants took an active part in laboratory work, including the establishment of cell cultures or conducting tests of antitumor activity. They had also the opportunity to see how such partially automated tests run.

Gase joined Miami in 2016, and Cutler parted with Chicago in March after eight seasons.Cutler, 34, drew little interest in the spring as a free agent, perhaps partly because Jarvis Landry Jerseys of his prickly personality and tendency for turnovers."I guess I know a different guy than what everybody else portrays," Gase said in May, when Cutler was hired by Fox as an analyst to work on its No. 2 NFL team.Tannehill, who missed the final four games of last season with two sprained ligaments in his knee, reinjured it a week into training camp Thursday. The damage is similar last year's injury, a personal familiar with Jay Ajayi Jerseys the diagnosis said, which has left the Dolphins consulting with specialists to determine whether surgery is the best option for Tannehill.He's expected to be sidelined a minimum of six weeks, but the deal with Cutler signals the Dolphins anticipate Tannehill will need a lengthier recovery.Cutler is 68-71 as a starter with a career quarterback rating of 85.7, 208 touchdown passes and 146 interceptions.
