NIH Grant to Extend DRVision, Nikon Partnership

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – DRVision has received a $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop sub-cellular imaging analysis software and extend a partnership with researchers at Nikon, Harvard University, and other organizations.

Bellevue, Wash.-based DRVision said today that it will use the funding from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences to develop imaging software and tools that can be used to track single molecules, vesicles, granules, virions, mitochondria, and microtubules.

The collaboration involves scientists at DRVision and at Nikon Imaging Centers at Hokkaido and Harvard Universities. The software they develop will be validated at Hokkaido and Harvard, and at the University of Pittsburgh, Loyola University of Chicago, and the University of Washington.
