$10 million grant supports biological sciences team at University of Nevada, Reno
Date:10/17/2011

ortant work that happens on this campus, in this community and this state. It's investments such as these that will continue to keep our University, and science, moving forward."

One important aspect of the new center will be the use of novel model organisms for biomedical research that utilizes the power of genetics in the fruit fly (Drosophila) and the earth worm (C. elegans), both projects underway on the University campus. In the past decade, these new approaches have become important tools to gain insights in cellular function and to tackle human diseases.

"Another novel feature of this proposal is that each specific project was assigned clinical consultants and mentors who will ensure disease focus," von Bartheld said. "This will help basic researchers, especially in the College of Science, to place their research in a clinical context and to facilitate collaboration with clinicians fostering interactions that lead to synergism and enhanced biomedical research capacity."

"This will be a strong stimulus to integrate the University's research in cell biology, developmental biology, signaling and neuroscience, develop collaborations between basic scientists and clinicians, and will have a lasting impact on future research capabilities in Nevada."

Co-director for the project is Grant Mastick, developmental neurobiologist and associate professor in biology. Researchers in several disciplines will contribute to this center, including project leaders Qi Wan, from the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology at the University of Nevada School of Medicine; Tom Kidd, Patricia Berninsone and Chi-Yun Pai from the Department of Biology in the College of Science, and Hanna Damke from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources and the School of Medicine.

The COBRE grant is one of only seven new COBRE grants awarded nationally in the past two years by
