Indiana Protein Center Signs First Clients, Receives Grants

NEW YORK, Aug. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - The Indiana Centers for Applied Protein Sciences, a for-profit venture that provides contract proteomic technology validation and protein analysis services, said yesterday that it has signed its first round of client agreements and that it has received two grants.


According to INCAPS, it now has committed projects from Eli Lilly, Dow AgroSciences and the Indiana University School of Medicine and is in varying stages of project development with several clients, including PurdueUniversity; IndianaUniversity, Bloomington; and the Lilly, IndianaUniversity, and Purdue research alliance Inproteo.


The first grant, worth $2 million, is from the State of Indiana's 21st Century Research and Technology Fund to defray start-up costs. The second, worth $400,000, is from the Indiana Department of Commerce and will allow INCAPS to purchase scientific equipment.
