NYU Langone Medical Center receives $5.4 million NYSTEM grant for stem cell research
Date:6/21/2010

NEW YORK, NY June 21, 2010 NYU Langone Medical Center has received a $5.4 million shared facility award from the Empire State Stem Cell Boards New York State Stem Cell Science (NYSTEM) program. The grant will be used to expand the NYU RNAi Core Facility and build shared access to the shRNA Core at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The purpose of the collaboration is to provide stem cell researchers in New York State with a truly comprehensive, state-of-the-art facility to conduct high-throughput screening (HTS) to investigate gene function in cell based assays. The NYU RNAi Core Facility utilizes RNA interference (RNAi), an invaluable tool in the identification of new therapeutic targets, as well as novel methods for treatment of disease.

We are truly honored to receive this award in recognition of the unique stem cell research being done at NYU Langone Medical Center, said Vivian S. Lee, MD, PhD, MBA, vice dean for science and chief scientific officer & senior vice president at NYU Langone Medical Center. The NYU RNAi Core Facility demonstrates the Medical Centers commitment to cutting edge technologies to advance scientific discovery and change the landscape of health care.

The NYU RNAi Core Facility was established in June 2008 with generous support from the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology and the NYU Cancer Institute. Screens performed at the NYU RNAi screening facility aim to identify new therapeutic targets for the generation of cancer-stem cell-specific therapies. The facility also actively promotes an open-access policy in which it promotes the sharing of primary data to the scientific community by making the data generated from RNAi screens publicly available post-publication.

The NYU RNAi Core Facility is led by Ramanuj DasGupta, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacology and research faculty at the NYU Cancer Institute and the Helen L. and Martin S. Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology
