The 6th Annual Chemistry of Life Processes Institute (CLP) Core Crawl will be held on Thursday, July 14, 2016 from 3:00PM – 5:00PM. This two-hour lively and interactive event encourages researchers to socialize, network and “crawl” between ten core facilities located in the Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics, located at 2170 Campus Drive on the Evanston campus.
Core managers and staff will showcase the innovative research and discoveries taking place within Silverman Hall by leading tours through their facilities. Participants have the opportunity to learn how the cores work together to advance potential therapeutics from the discovery phase to prepare for human clinical trials. Participants are given tickets by each core they visit which are valid towards pizza, beer samplings and raffles. By the end of the event, “crawlers” can make their way outside to the Silverman Hall courtyard for food and fun.
A Bone Marrow Registry Drive will be held at the CLP Core Crawl in Silverman Hall. All participants are welcome to become a potential bone marrow donor. Potential donors registered are added to the Be The Match® Registry, the official registry of the United States operated by the National Marrow Donor Program®. This registry currently includes more than 11 million donors, of which more than 38 percent have been recruited by DKMS globally.
Participating core facilities will include the:
Center for Advanced Molecular Imaging; Center for Developmental Therapeutics; Center for Molecular Innovation and Drug Discovery; Integrated Molecular Structure Education and Research Center; Developmental Therapeutics Core; ChemCore; High Throughput Analysis Laboratory; Scanned Probe Imaging and Development Facility; Proteomics Center for Excellence; Proteomics Core; Quantitative Bio-element Imaging Center; Biological Imaging Facility; and Recombinant Protein Production Core.
