Recent NSF Awards in Proteomics and Protein Research
Title: Modeling and Prediction of Protein and Protein/Ligand Behavior on Surfaces
Principal Investigator: Thomas Knotts
Sponsor: Brigham Young University
Start/End Date: March 1, 2011 – Feb. 29, 2012
Amount Awarded to Date: $81,884
Funds efforts to probe the stability of proteins and protein-ligand complexes in bulk and on a different variety of surfaces as a means of better understanding the factors affecting protein-surface interaction with the ultimate goal of improving the design of protein arrays.
Title: microMOSAIC Frameworks for Next-Generation Proteomic Technology
Principal Investigator: Amy Herr
Sponsor: University of California-Berkeley
Start/End Date: Feb. 15, 2011 – Jan. 31, 2012
Amount Awarded to Date: $74,450
Funds a project to develop microfluidic devices for proteomics research using microchambers that are regionally photopatterned with discrete nanomaterials in order to improve multi-step protein separations.
