$18 million UW genomic science award benefits Center

Sept. 21, 2006

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health, recently renewed an $18 million, five-year grant to continue support for the University of Washington's Microscale Life Sciences Center.

The UW's program, led by Dr. Deirdre Meldrum in close collaboration with Hutchinson Center researchers, will focus on developing miniaturized, automated systems to swiftly detect and analyze the differences between healthy cells and diseased cells at the level of an individual cell. Such information is important for understanding the fundamental pathways involved in disease processes, including cancer.

NHGRI's Centers of Excellence in Genomic Science program, which began in 2001, pulls together multi-institution, interdisciplinary teams of scientists with the goal of making critical advances in genomic research.
