NIH to Fund New Proteomics Center at UCSD

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Research Resources will provide the University of California, San Diego, with up to $4.94 million over five years to support a new proteomics center.
 
The center will serve as an international resource in proteomics, enabling more research activities, investigation into unexplored areas of computational proteomics, and support of collaborative research efforts.
 
According to an NIH statement, the center will “bring creative mathematical approaches to mass spectrometry and will build a new generation of reliable open-access software tools that will catalyze exchange and collaboration among experimental and computational researchers in proteomics.” It also will train the scientific community in using technologies that it develops.
 
UCSD’s proteomics center is one of 52 Biomedical Technology Research Centers that have been established through NCRR funding.
