Biology majors gain national recognition for T-cell research

The accolades keep coming for the Furman biology department’s ground-breaking research into the chemical processes behind T-cell activation. Early in the summer, the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) sent a video team to campus to document a procedure developed by biology professor Jason Rawlings ’96 that uses a flow cytometer to track the decondensation of T-cell chromatin. “It’s huge for Furman. It gets us on the map,” Rawlings said. “It shows Furman students are doing some top-end research.”
