About This Project

On May 16, Dicty and HL60 cells will race for the "fastest &
smartest" title. Both cell types are models for studying human neutrophils, the white blood cells protecting us from infections. Neutrophils are often perturbed during disease and today we have no drugs to correct their migration when that happens. We recruited 20 of the top science labs around the world to fine-tune the cells for the Race, but only one will win the Great Prize of $5,000.
Blast off!
