Videomicrograph of intestinal epithelium migrating, from left to right, into an experimentally made wound. Over 18 hours the untreated cells actively migrate to cover the ulcerated surface (video 1). Video 2 shows cells that have been treated with an antiinflammatory compound.  These data suggest clinical anti-inflammatory agents interfere with epithelial migration and wound healing.

The Dwinell lab was featured in a September 2008 news segment entitled "Lighting Up Cancer" with reporter Julie Feldman of WITI Milwaukee. The segment discusses a laboratory research tool used to track cancer cells which is based on the same protein involved in firefly illumination. The technique was not discovered by the Dwinell lab, however, the Dwinell lab was one of the first to utilize the technique at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
