Tiny pathogens are isolated and float within a small cylinder under a ventilation hood within the Pakpour Lab at UBC Okanagan. Using an innovative method to isolate pathogens, researchers are now turning their attention to diagnostic applications. While the research sounds complicated, an important role was played by an undergraduate research assistant, James Fowler. Fowler, a NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Assistant Award recipient, took a lead role in the inter-disciplinary project.
