Uga scientist gets $4.4 million for genetics research - Around the Arch
March 2010 Issue
Researchers from UGA and the University of Pennsylvania have been awarded a five-year, $14.6 million contract from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, to expand work on the Eukaryotic Pathogen Genome Database Resource. Of that, $4.4 million is sub-contracted to UGA for Jessica Kissinger of the Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases, who is one of three investigators directing the database. The open database allows scientists to examine genes, genomes, isolates and other attributes related to a variety of important human pathogens, and it facilitates the search for effective diagnostics and therapeutics. More than 42,000 scientists from more than 100 countries have used the database and its component Web sites over the past six months.
