In an effort to advance research relevant to the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which includes basic biomedical, clinical biomedical, bioengineering, bioimaging
, and behavioral research, the participating Institutes and Centers solicit applications for the Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25).
The State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics (BCEB) merges high-end technology, including super-computing and visualization, with expertise in genomics, proteomics, and bioimaging
, to enable major contributions in science and healthcare.
The grant from the National Institute of Bioimaging
and Bioengineering (NIBIB) of the U.
Technological innovations, such as bioimaging
, bioinformatics and medical applications, would receive $88 million in funding, while genetic research would receive $21 million for SNIP analysis for healthcare applications.
The result will be a person qualified in "computational bioimaging
of metals and proteomic studies of clinical samples by laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS)
The second half more specifically explores applications of precious metals including dental, therapeutic, tissue engineering, and bioimaging
Nanotechnology and bioimaging
expert prof Loo noted that the new biomarker can also release anti-cancer drugs by creating a layer of coating loaded with drugs on the outside of the nanoparticle.
Topics presented include the use of nano and micro-particles as probes and sensors in biological tissue, quantum dots as bioimaging
and diagnostic tools, interactions of organic molecules with nanoscale tools, real-time clinical monitoring of biomolecules, and measurement techniques applicable to biological systems such as infrared light probes, biomolecule separation techniques, spectroscopy, and radiation and nuclear magnetic resonance probes.
The properties of these new C-dots make them ideal for a variety of bioimaging
applications and for medical diagnostics.
