Southern Research Institute Moves into Proteomics

NEW YORK, Aug. 25 (GenomeWeb News) - Southern Research Institute, a Birmingham, Ala.-based contract research center, said today that it plans to add proteomics to its pharmaceutical research repertoire.

"We expect the demand for proteomics to increase as drug companies look to enhance the therapeutic value of their drugs to the patient," said Gregory Gorman, director of the Bioanalytical Sciences department at Southern Research.
