Large Scale Biology Pens Toxicoproteomics Collaboration with NIEHS

NEW YORK, July 24 - The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has awarded Large Scale Biology a $12.2-million, 5-year contract to perform toxicoproteomics research for the National Center for Toxicogenomics.

The work, which began on July 19 at LSB's Germantown, Md.-based proteomics division, calls for the firm to use its ProGEx protein expression-analysis technology to analyze a number of undisclosed samples each year.

Sandra Steiner, LSB's vice president of proteomics and an expert in toxicology, will lead the effort, the company said.
