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

at the Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine. The facility is managed by Dr. Chi Yun, PhD, who serves as the assistant director of the NYU RNAi Core. Dr. DasGupta is working with co-principal investigator, Ihor Lemischka, PhD, professor of Gene and Cell Medicine and Developmental and Regenerative Biology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.

This multi-institutional grant will serve the entire academic community in the New York State and will provide a comprehensive set of cutting edge technologies to researchers working in stem cell-related research, said Ruth Lehmann, PhD, Director of the Center and of the Skirball Institute, the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Chair, and a Howard Hughes investigator. The funding provided by NYSTEM for the creation of this shared facility with molecular tools such as RNAi-based HTS will prove invaluable for the identification of new therapeutic targets.

The NYSTEM grant for shared facilities for stem cell research supports the establishment and operation of multi-institutional core research facilities to maximize the expertise, efficiency and quality of stem cell research in New York State. The grant is multi-institutional, serving the entire academic community in the New York State to promote a unique opportunity for fostering collaborations between different labs working with stem cells or conducting stem cell-related research. Covering up to four years, the grant will fund specialized resources and facilities to be operated on a shared-use basis in support of basic, applied, translational, pre-clinical or clinical stem cell-related research. Seven shared facility awards totaling more than $27 million were given out in the latest funding round.
