Dartmouth Med School lands $11M grant for regional biomedical research center
Date:8/22/2011

HANOVER, NH Under an $11-million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dartmouth Medical School (DMS) will lead a network of northern New England institutions in recruiting, training, and supporting young quantitative biologists to teach and conduct research into the ways that genes and the environment work together to trigger and prevent disease.

With computational geneticist Jason Moore, PhD as principal investigator, DMS will establish an NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE.) Dartmouth scientists in several disciplines will join forces with colleagues at the University of New Hampshire, the University of Maine, the University of Vermont, Harvard University's national center for biomedical computing, the University of Southern Maine, Maine's Jackson Labs and Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, and Maine Medical Center.

"This grant complements and supports the Institute for Quantitative Biological Sciences (iQBS) that we started a year ago with funding from DMS and the provost at Dartmouth College," says Moore, who also serves as associate director of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at DMS. "The goals of the grant include the recruitment of talented young quantitative biologists to Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine, which is essential for advancing biomedical research in our largely rural research setting, and mentoring junior faculty to help them become competitive for NIH funding. It also will provide funding to junior investigators for research projects, support bioinformatics and biostatistics research through an 'Integrative Biology Core,' build infrastructure in the form of a regional, high-performance computing grid, and recruit new faculty in bioinformatics, biostatistics, and related areas."

Moore, DMS' Third Century Professor of Genetics and Community and Family Medicine, adds that the research projects will encourage junior faculty to examine different aspects of the way genes and env
