Large Scale Biology Awarded Biomarker Research Grant

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 (GenomeWeb News) - Large Scale Biology said that it has received a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to support the discovery of biomarkers for alcohol-related diseases.

The work will be conducted by Large Scale's proteomics division, the company said, and is expected to generate a database of changes in protein expression from different areas of the brain as induced by alcohol-related phenomena.

The size of the grant was not disclosed. Officials from Large Scale Biology were not immediately available for comment.
