In a sign that chemists are more than willing to make use of lab equipment in research, some of the equipment on display at the Science Fair could be transformed into cancer therapies, according to a panel of experts.
The scientists behind the “Chemistry Lab for Cancer” exhibit at the fair, which ran through Sunday, were looking to take a page from chemists’ book by using the lab equipment for developing drugs for cancer.
While the chemistry lab was not specifically named for the disease, the exhibit was intended to highlight the importance of science and engineering in medical science, said John Turek, director of the Center for the Science of Health Policy and Public Policy at the National Academies.
“There’s so much potential for that to be applied to medical science,” he said.
Chemistry labs have long been considered a key tool in medicine for developing new medicines, Tureck said.
But they were only recently used to develop drugs that could be tested on patients.
The chemists behind the exhibit at Science Fair showed off a series of different kinds of laboratory equipment.
One of the larger, 12-foot-tall metal boxes with a big, red-white-and-blue logo had three rows of six blue, white, and red-colored tubes.
It looked like a laboratory from a science fiction movie.
An array of other small, rectangular metal boxes held three more tubes and a few other different types of tubes.
Each tube contained a different kind of material and an array of devices.
The devices included a microscope, a scanning electron microscope, and a spectrometer.
The metal boxes were also covered with tiny, colored plates, which could be bent and twisted.
This large metal box with a “Cancer Lab” logo was one of several that showed off the chemistry labs of the Science Center at the Fair.
Another large box had two different types and sizes of tubes with tubes inside, as well as an array that held a spectrofluidic analyzer, a laser, and an electrochemical analyzer.
The tubes also had a range of other types of chemicals and equipment.
Turek said that the chemistry and medical sciences fields could use more of the lab’s equipment, like the tubes, so that they could be turned into drugs.
“Cancer lab” is the name of the exhibit. “
They’re using the equipment for something other than research.”
“Cancer lab” is the name of the exhibit.
But the exhibit also includes several other types and items.
One was a lab, which is a place to conduct experiments and test new drugs.
Another was a test area, which allowed researchers to conduct clinical trials and compare their findings to others.
Another room contained an area for making small samples of the drugs that were being tested.
The room also had the potential to be used for manufacturing or testing the drugs.
Tasek said the use of science labs for medical research should be a part of the American dream.
Science is so important, he said, and it is important that it be used to do good work.
He said the idea of using the labs for drugs should be welcomed by everyone, regardless of their background.
