UC Davis 'Big Bang' contests wins funds for scientists

A $3,000 "people's choice" award went to five UCD students for their plan to refine and market a robotic, nanotechnology-based process that could allow scientists and drug developers to study cell-membrane proteins far more rapidly than is currently possible.

Such studies can lead to advances in understanding and treating viruses, heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
