Dr. DeCoster’s laboratory is designed for biochemical and digital imaging analysis of cellular events in the brain. Currently planned activities include brain cell inflammatory responses, digital imaging of apoptosis in normal and brain tumor cells and response of brain glial cells to injury. Major equipment includes PC- and Mac-based imaging workstations (4); motorized inverted fluorescence microscope with a digital camera (Leica).
