Why the Dicty Race?

The Cell Race will accelerate our progress towards understanding neutrophil motility by actively engaging all the scientists in the field of cell motility. Cells prepared in various laboratories will have to navigate through microscopic mazes and compete for the title of the world smartest and fastest. Genetic manipulations and doping of cells are not only allowed, but highly encouraged. Anything that helps us learn what makes neutrophils respond quickly and effectively against microbes could eventually become a target for better diagnostic and treatments of sepsis. However, before the Race can take place, quite a bit of preparation is necessary. We are seeking to raise funds to accelerate these efforts.
