UConn site lets researchers model cell behavior

UConn Health’s Leslie M. Loew, professor of cell biology and computer science and engineering, has received $1.3 million from the National Institutes of Health to maintain and improve a project that has been aiding international cell biology research for 21 years.

Loew is the director of the Center for Cell Analysis and Modeling at UConn Health which runs VCell. VCell, short for Virtual Cell, is an online program that allows researchers to model the behavior of any type of cell to see how it would respond in an experiment or to better analyze experimental data. more
