Researchers from 17 Institutions Chosen for Microarray Network


University of Alabama researcher David Allison is organizing a retreat using a $409,000 Research Coordination Network (RCN) grant he just received from the National Science Foundation to form a national microarray data analysis research network.

The funds will cover travel and accommodations for one researcher from each of the 17 institutions that Allison has signed up for the network, but Allison is currently raising additional funds from the private sector to cover costs for more participants. "Any qualified scientist who''s genuinely interested in design and analysis of microarray studies can apply," said Allison, who can be contacted via e-mail at [email protected] However, Allison told BioArray News he wants to keep the head count down to 35.

So far, Allison has chosen researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, who will lead the group, as well as from St. Lukes-Roosevelt Institute for Health Sciences; Columbia University; Yale University; University of Missouri; North Dakota State University; University of Wisconsin-Madison; University of Nebraska; Hofstra University; Adelphi University; University of Texas; University of Pennsylvania; University of Alaska-Fairbanks; Rockefeller University; Virginia Commonwealth University; Penn State University; the Wistar Institute; and Montana State University.
