Case Western Reserve University receives $4M from the NIBIB
Date:8/19/2009

CLEVELAND August 19, 2009 The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has received a $4 million grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to fund the Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences.

The center, to be funded through 2014, provides resources for the NIH funded scientific community to support the study of the structure and dynamics of proteins and nucleic acids.

"These studies are critical for understanding the normal biology of all organisms and the molecular effects of disease including the design of drugs to control cellular processes and the understanding of the molecular interactions that mediate the spread of viruses and bacteria," said Mark Chance, Ph.D., the lead investigator and Director of the Case Western Reserve University's Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics.

Since 1995, Chance has served as the director of the Center for Synchrotron Biosciences, located at Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York. Under his direction the Center has developed a number of novel structural biology tools and built infrastructure to serve an international community of biomedical scientists. The Center currently serves over 550 users at the National Synchrotron Light Source through the operation of four synchrotron beamlines that provide state‐of‐the art equipment, techniques, user support, and training for radiolytic footprinting, x‐ray spectroscopy, and macromolecular crystallography experiments. The users come from across the United States and from around the world.

By way of the newly awarded grant, the Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences will continue to provide three Technology Cores supported by a highly trained user staff:

1. A footprinting core, based on the world‐leading X28C footprinting beamline, will provide facilities to study the structure and function of proteins and nuc
