The Redox Biology Center (RBC) is organized as a broad-based interdisciplinary and multi-institutional entity involving researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) and the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha (UNMC). The RBC is funded by the National Institute of Health grant P20 RR017675 from the COBRE program of the National Center for Research Resources.
The specific aims of the COBRE-supported Redox Biology Center (RBC) are to buttress and expand the existing strengths in redox biology in Nebraska by mentoring junior faculty to success, recruiting new faculty with complementary research interests and strategically enhancing biomedical research structure. Scientists are amalgamated from two major research institutions in the state (UNL and UNMC).
Post-doctoral Positions Available
The Redox Biology Center currently has several postdoctoral opportunities available.
The Redox Biology Center welcomes applications from faculty at UNL or UNMC who are interested in being considered for membership. We are particularly interested in further broadening our base to include members whose research interests are in the general area of redox biology and who would benefit from and contribute to the activities sponsored by the RBC. Faculty interested in becoming a member of the Center should contact Dr. Donald Becker (email@example.com or 402-472-9652).
Redox Biology Center Highlights
8/19/2013 - Congratuations to Jay Reddy, RBC member and Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Associate Professor. Dr. Reddy successfully captured funding from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute for his project "Autoimmunity in the Mediation of Infectious Myocarditis".
6/17/2013 - Hatch Equipment funding was awarded to Don Becker, Redox Biology Center Director. He and six other RBC members submitted a successful proposal to ARD for an UltiMate 3000 HPLC system. Dr. Becker wrote "The new HPLC will enable UNL faculty to conduct state-of-the-art research requiring separation, isolation and quantification of key molecules from complex biological mixtures." The new equipment will be installed in the George W. Beadle Center by October 2013.
3/28/2013 - Redox Biology Center announces new funding opportunities. The RBC is now accepting applications for two grant opportunities; Pilot Grant Program and Exploratory Grant Program. Awards will be $2,000-$50,000 per year. For more information please contact Hannah Kahler at 472.3173 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the pilot project page by clicking here.
3/26/2013 - Don Becker, Redox Biology Center Director, was named as Charles Bessey Professor of Biochemistry. Charles Bessey Professorship is awarded to full professors in recognition of distingued scholarship or creative activity. Dr. Becker joined UNL in 2003 and became the Director of the Redox Biology Center in 2009. For the complete article visit http://newsroom.unl.edu/announce/todayatunl/2207/12493.
3/5/2013 - Redox Biology Center member, Jim Alfano, graduate student Anna Joe and co-authors recently reported their findings on how plants defend themselves against invaders in the European Molecular Biology Organization Journal.
