Recovery Act dollars are stimulating research at the Medical College of Georgia
Date:12/8/2009

It's a $1.8 million shot in the arm to the largest grant the Medical College of Georgia has ever received.

The two-year stimulus funding, provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, is expediting two national diabetes research initiatives managed by MCG: one developing animal models to study diabetes complications, the other offering an array of sophisticated animal tests and procedures to scientists studying a disease that can wreak lifelong habit.

"The data are growing daily. We average 2, 000 to 3,000 hits a week for each Web site," said Dr. Richard A. McIndoe, associate director of MCG's Center for Biotechnology and Genomic Medicine and manager of the Animal Models of Diabetic Complications Consortium and the Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Centers.

Mounting interest in the initiatives and the huge amount of data they are generating including more than 70 mice models required updating computer servers to support the increasingly mammoth undertaking.

"Things were getting a little slow," said Dr. McIndoe who was able to secure the two-year, $1.8 million stimulus grant to help speed things up. Stimulus dollars also are enabling him to devote a greater percentage of his time to the burgeoning projects. A half-million dollars supported a pilot program of the complication-related initiative that supports the final stage of developing an animal model, an important scientific step that tends not to attract National Institutes of Health dollars. Remaining stimulus dollars will fund equipment and personnel at the mouse metabolic phenotyping centers at Case Western Reserve University, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Yale University School of Medicine.

All told, MCG has secured 28 stimulus grants totaling $8.1 million. Dr. McIndoe's stimulus grant supplements his $15 million NIH grant to support the Coordinating and Bioinformatics Units for the two initiatives.
