Six Faculty Receive Genomics and Bioinformatics Pilot Project Awards

Author: Katherine Taylor

The Genomics, Disease Ecology and Global Health Strategic Research Initiative Program and the Eck Institute for Global Health have announced the presentation of six awards to support pilot projects in the areas of genomics and bioinformatics. This announcement comes at a time in which Notre Dame has recently funded the expansion of core facilities in genomics and bioinformatics. The goal of this investment is to provide university-wide access to technical and computational resources for high throughput, computationally intensive genomics and bioinformatics projects, as well as to recruit new scientific users to these powerful technologies. In support of this goal, applications for pilot project funds to support scientist from across campus for whom genomics and/or bioinformatics could be important to their research were solicited and reviewed. Projects were selected based on scientific significance and rationale, approach, preliminary data, need for support and the potential to leverage additional extramural funding.…
