Tony Marion, PhD, College of Medicine Emeritus Professor, may have retired in 2022, but UTHSC researchers are about to benefit from one of his final efforts on their behalf: a major equipment upgrade to ensure they have the latest and greatest technology for isolating and analyzing live cells.
For the third time in his career, Dr. Marion, former director of the Flow Cytometry Cell Sorting Core (FCCS), has been awarded a National Institutes of Health S10 shared instrumentation grant. The S10 program, which supports the purchase of high-tech instruments to enhance research of NIH-funded investigators, has awarded $616,949 for purchase of a high-end spectral cell sorter, the Cytek Aurora CS. The Aurora CS will replace the aging BD FACSAria IIu sorter currently used in the FCCS and available to UTHSC and Memphis-area researchers.
