Using a large repository of blood samples from military personnel, PNNL and Uniformed Services University scientists have discovered a group of 13 proteins that could provide early detection of head and neck cancers.
The nation’s ability to test for COVID-19 has expanded, thanks to work at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where scientists have established the performance of testing equipment to detect the virus.
A cadre of physical scientists, engineers and computing experts at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is poised to participate in the launch of three new DOE Office of Science-sponsored quantum information science research centers.
Researchers from PNNL have helped colleagues at OHSU identify lipid molecules required for Zika infection in human cells. The specific lipids involved could also be a clue to why the virus primarily infects brain tissue.
As author of her first publication, PNNL bioinformaticist Isabelle O’Bryon developed the first forensic proteomics method to more quickly detect ricin, a toxin often crudely made in home laboratories that can kill in trace amounts.
A long-standing collaboration between PNNL and Oregon State University to study harmful chemicals at federally designated hazardous waste sites primarily across the Pacific Northwest has been awarded a five-year, $12.7 million grant.
