NIH funding

The Small Business Technology Transfer Award will fund research in collaboration with the University of Rochester to detect modifications in RNA transcripts.

Up to five new grants will take a systems biology and omics approach to research the molecular interactions between pathogens and hosts.

The award will establish a metabolomics research core to research rare metabolites and develop novel assays that could help diagnose associated diseases.

The grants will fund projects to create new technologies, validate and refine existing ones, and add single-cell components to existing projects.
