Funding Update: NSF Grants Awarded to Arizona State; University of Illinois


Recent NSF Awards in Proteomics and Protein Research

Title: Plasmonic-Based Electrochemical Impedance Microscopy for Studying Molecular Binding and Cellular Processes
Principal Investigators: Nongjian Tao, Shaopeng Wang
Sponsor: Arizona State University
Start/End Date: Aug. 1, 2012 – July 31, 2015
Amount Awarded to Date: $651,205

Funds development of a plasmonic-based electrochemical impedance microscope that can monitor the binding of small molecules and proteins in microarray format. The researchers aim to integrate P-EIM with total internal reflection fluorescence and surface plasmon resonance microscopy for use in fields including proteomics.

Title: Evolutionary Genomics Collaborative: Origins, Evolution and Structure of Viral and Cellular Proteomes
Principal Investigator: Gustavo Caetano-Anolles
Sponsor: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Start/End Date: July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2014
Amount Awarded to Date: $49,721

Funds a project to characterize the origin, evolution, and structure of viral proteomes and compare them to proteomes of the cellular world in order to better integrate an understanding of viral structural and functional evolution into knowledge of cellular evolution.
