Sandra Garraway

Sandra Garraway, PhD, Assistant Professor of Physiology at Emory University School of Medicine, is the new scientific director of the Emory Multiplex Immunoassay Core (EMIC).

EMIC is a School of Medicine-supported facility within the Emory Integrated Core Facilities. This core facility performs, analyzes and interprets multiplexed immunoassays that measure protein levels in a variety of biological materials including plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, blood and urine samples, tissue and vaginal swabs. 

A faculty member in the Department of Physiology and the Emory neuroscience graduate program, Garraway says she is excited to help direct a facility that provides investigators from academia and industry technical expertise for a critical part of their work. Her own research focuses primarily on the underlying neural mechanisms that cause pain after spinal cord injury.

Assistant Vice President for Research at Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center, Michael Zwick, PhD, says Garraway will be an outstanding leader for EMIC. “She will be able to impact the research of many investigators at Emory who use the unique and important services provided by this core facility.
