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

p>It's the kind of math MCG officials like to hear. "The stimulus funding is an essential bridge for MCG and other research-intensive universities in fiscal year 2010," said Dr. Doug Miller, MCG's senior vice president for health affairs and School of Medicine dean. "It connects a recently flat NIH budget in fiscal year 2009 to a bigger NIH budget in 2011. It also bridges our successful MCG research programs by keeping teams of scientists who are working on important health discoveries fully employed."

MCG's extramural research funding has increased 33 percent during six years of essentially flat NIH budgets, according to Dr. Frank Treiber, MCG vice president for research development. "In fiscal year 2008 we showed a 13% growth and last year we showed a 14% increase for a record $83.8 million, including a 30 percent increase in NIH funding."

Extramural funding in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 is already 6.5% higher than that of the same period in fiscal 2009, with stimulus funds contributing significantly to the strong first quarter.

The boost is important from an economic perspective as well since Georgia's academic health centers, such as MCG, pump $10.9 billion into the state's economy annually and employ more than 81,000 people, Dr. Miller added.

Stimulus dollars also are helping Dr. Arun Sreekumar in MCG's Cancer Center employ some innovative measures to determine the pathways of prostate cells and the missteps they take to become cancer. The comprehensive look should lead to better detection and treatment planning for the disease. For instance, no treatment may be the best treatment when the disease is slow growing and appears later in life.

Drs. Sreekumar and George Michailidis, a bioinformatics expert at the University of Michigan, want to develop the computational tools that will enable them to compare the ton of data they already have from 42 men with healthy prostates or more benign and aggressive forms of p
