meltingglue

I am still testing the tissue glue, pigs skin and freezer temperature on a daily basis. The exciting news is that I just got a flask of HaCat cells from one of the researchers here. (I am keeping his name anonymous for the moment).  I will be growing and passaging  the cells over  the next few weeks in preparing for the transduction with Lentivirus. In the meantime I’ll be working with Meredith Walsh, another artist-researcher in residence, and going over the do and don’t of Sterile Technique with her. She is doing an interesting project conducting cell culture with  jellyfish scooped from the river just outside the Anatomy building. (Check out SymbioticA’s website in the links to see her previous work.)
