Each scientist will receive an Ion PGM and because of the ubiquitous nature of the Ion Torrent sequencing technology, these scientists will be able to give their labs sequencing capabilities that up to now were only prevalent in large, core sequencing centers.

In addition, Ion Torrent has awarded three runners-up an Ion PGM sequencer to support their exceptional proposals.  This award will enable the visionary scientists to conduct further research at an accelerated rate.

"In all of the proposals we saw innovative, often potentially breakthrough applications that were on the shelf simply because there was not a technology that had the speed, throughput, affordability and read length to make them practical," said Dr. Jonathan M. Rothberg, Founder and President of Ion Torrent.  "Ion Torrent is the only sequencing technology that offers the ability to do all your 'next-gen' research applications in your own lab, while enabling a new generation of research applications that need same day results."

Award WinnersDr. Carracedo, Director of the Galician Foundation of Genomic Medicine in Spain, was awarded the grant for his proposal to create a fast and affordable method for genetic screening of research samples from newborns.
