NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Cleveland Foundation has given a large grant to expand a proteomics research facility at Case Western Reserve University as part of a $10 million community investment program.

The $1.5 million grant will be used to expand Case Western Reserve's Center for Proteomic Medicine, which focuses on using proteomics studies for disease research. The grant is part of the foundation's efforts to address the ongoing economic downturn.

The foundation initially gave the proteomics center a $1.5 million grant in 2005.
