NHGRI and Others to Commit $7M to In Vivo Imaging Research

NEW YORK, Sept. 12 (GenomeWeb News) - The National Institute of General Medical Sciences, the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, and the National Human Genome Research Institute will jointly commit $7 million in financial year 2004 to support seven to nine Exploratory Center grants to develop higher sensitivity in vivo imaging techniques, the institutes announced this week.


In the Request for Applications, the NHGRI stated particular interest in approaches that involve genetically encoded probes, "with emphasis on technologies that have a reasonable future potential to provide information regarding the dynamic presence, location, association, and/or activity of proteins."


The first awards will be announced in July 2004.
