ERASYSBIO+ has agreed to fund projects involving a total of 85 research groups from 14 countries. Those partner countries provided a total €18.5 million of the funding, with the remaining €5.5 million coming from the European Union.

The Sage grant is the first CCSB award that has been disclosed. According to a request for applications for the program issued last year, NCI plans to commit a total of approximately $22.5 million per year to fund up to nine centers for up to five years.

The non-profit institute will use $6.7 million to establish an NCI Integrative Cancer Biology Program Center.

The institute, which is part of the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, is in the process of completing a $205 million, 300,000-square-foot facility within the UW-Madison campus. An official said that systems biology and computational biology will play key roles.

The $4.5 million in grants will support research that uses 'omics data to understand HIV/AIDS and substance abuse.

The findings help validate Therasis' bioinformatics and systems biology approach to reconstructing maps of regulatory networks in specific cancer cell types.

These studies will take a systems biology approach to discover gene networks and pathways linked to lung-microbe interactions.

The funding from the three countries will use informatics to study systems involved in seed germination.

At the conference, Hood discussed family sequencing efforts at his lab and announced a partnership with OSU to advance “killer applications” for personalized medicine through industry/academia partnerships.

The University College Dublin center also is supported by Agilent, Protagen, Siemens, and other firms.
