NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Iowa said Tuesday that it has received a $2 million donation from the Carver Charitable Trust to support a proteomics research center.
The university said that it plans to use the funding to establish a core facilities operational endowment for proteomics in the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.
UI Professor and head of biochemistry Charles Brenner said in a statement that the funding will expand the school's mass spectrometry-based proteomics capabilities. "These funds will help us make new and profound discoveries to resolve the increasing array of biomedical questions we face," he said.
