PNNL wins record grant for proteomics center

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has won a five-year, $10.2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to support a center for basic research in proteomics. This is the largest NIH award in PNNL's 38-year history.

The grant designates PNNL as an NIH research resource center and will establish PNNL as a base for proteomics research worldwide. It will fund development of advanced instrumentation for studying the large and complex protein sets, which allow all living things to function. The ability to measure proteins, especially those present in trace amounts, and to observe changes in them is the key to understanding molecular-level cell function and disease progression, treatment and prevention.

The award will enable PNNL staff to collaborate on important biomedical projects with top NIH-supported researchers and expand their investigations into more complex mammalian systems relevant to human diseases.
