Dr. Andrew Mehle
University of Wisconsin – Medical Microbiology and Immunology
"Our lab is interested in identifying barriers to influenza virus cross-species transmission and how those control the emergence of new pandemic viruses. Thanks in part to the Mirus Research Award Program, we were able to use Trans
IT®-LT1 in our studies to further implicate the viral polymerase complex as a major regulator of viral tropism and identify new adaptive strategies used by influenza as it moves from birds to people. Details of these efforts can be found in the Journal of Virology (Mehle, A et al. Journal of Virology. Feb 2012.
University of Hawaii at Manoa - Hoffman Lab "Thanks in part to the Mirus Research Award, we have been able to transfect BMDM’s with the TransIT®-2020 Transfection Reagent. Not only are my cells healthier, but I get good expression, and it is more cost effective to the Neon Transfection System that my lab traditionally uses. I have also been able to share these results with others that are now trying it with great success. It makes me look like a hero!"
