NIH Recovery Act awards enable crucial health research technologies
Date:10/21/2010

Leading-edge, shared technologies are an important component of advancing research to improve health. Specialized instruments such as high-powered electron microscopes, high-resolution mass spectrometers and supercomputers that rapidly process vast amounts of data can enable breakthrough discoveries in preventions, treatments and cures for diseases.

Thanks to the Recovery Act, more health scientists now will have access to these state-of-the-art devices, the National Institutes of Health announced today. Through its National Center for Research Resources (NCRR), NIH has awarded $300 million in shared instrumentation grants.

In total, NCRR awarded more than 450 Recovery Act instrumentation grants to groups of NIH-funded scientists in 42 states and the District of Columbia. The grants, which range from $100,000 to $8 million, enable the purchase of technology that is vital to promising research projects.

"These Recovery Act awards make world class resources available to scientists nationwide," said NIH Director Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. "More researchers now will have access to the latest technologies that accelerate the pace of biomedical research, ultimately leading to new advances and treatments for diseases."

Following are three types of technologies and instruments funded by these grants, all of which have the potential to enhance a wide variety of biomedical research in many disease areas.

  • Researchers at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis will use a $7.8 million grant to purchase components of a 10.5 Tesla whole-body magnetic resonance imaging system. This instrument will be the most powerful of its kind in the world, providing scientists with unprecedented views inside the human body. In the past two decades, researchers have made great strides in developing instruments with increasingly powerful magnetic fields that can zoom in on finer structures. The 10.5 Tesla magnet will push
