Lottery Grant to support acquisition of a gamma irradiator

Posted on by

Dr. Nicholas Fleming is thankful to receive a $100,000 Lottery Health – Research Equipment grant to support the acquisition of a gamma irradiator. The equipment will be used by multiple research groups at Otago for┬ásterilisation and radiation challenge of matter, reagents and biologicals. In our group, we will use the equipment to understand the p53 driven response to radiation damage in cultured cells as this process is one of our primary defences against cancer.
