The Genome Data Center Initiative, St. Louis The Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) will use a $14.3 million award to build a world-class data center to support human genome research. WUSM has been involved in genome science since the inception of the field. Its genome center recently embarked on several ambitious projects to decode the genomics of hundreds of cancer patients and their tumors. The research has the potential to transform the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The new 15,000 square-foot data center will support the computational power and storage needs that projects like these require.
The San Francisco Office of AIDS Renovation (SOAR) Project A grant of more than $9.5 million will allow three prominent United States-based HIV/AIDS prevention research units within the San Francisco Department of Public Health to increase their capacity to recruit, enroll and retain large, diverse populations of study participants efficiently and effectively, and to provide critical data on new HIV/AIDS cases to investigators worldwide. The SOAR project will provide researchers with the space and data needs required for large patient studies, improved security for records storage and space needed for training. The project also will have an impact on current and future biomedical HIV/AIDS research and training initiati
