Life Technologies Announces Visionary Winners of the Ion Torrent PGM Grants Program in Europe
Date:2/18/2011

wborn genetic screening efforts have been limited by high cost, slow run times and limited throughput of existing sequencing technology," said Carracedo.  "Our research will be focused on developing a newborn screening based on Ion amplicon sequencing for Cistic fibrosis, Wilson disease, Hurles-Scheie disease and other congenital metabolic diseases."

Dr. Pallen, Professor of Microbial Genomics at the University of Birmingham, was awarded the grant for his proposal to identify, profile and type the healthcare-associated bacterial pathogens in hospital environments,– a huge and unmet problem that is now made solvable by the Ion PGM.

"The excessive run times and high costs of previous sequencing methods have severely limited the real-time use of sequencing in environmental microbiology settings," said Pallen.  "The Ion PGM is already an order of magnitude cheaper and quicker with a performance enabled by years of compounded Moore's law.  The ability to deliver cheap same-day results is essential to enable timely interventions in outbreak management."

Honorary Grant Winners Furthering Environmental and Ecological Research Dr. Thomas Curtis, Professor of Environmental Engineering at Newcastle University, received an honorary grant for his proposal to routinely characterize the biology of waste-water treatment.

Dr. Howard Martin, Clinical Scientist, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and team, received a grant for their proposal to develop DNA sequence-based human leukocyte antigen (HLA) research.
