One of the primary activities of the Center is to facilitate the successful submission
of grants. This is accomplished through the development of interdisciplinary research
collaborations and the acquisition and maintenance of state-of-the-art technology,
backed by trained and knowledgeable personnel. In the last two years the Center has
facilitated successful submissions of new grants totally close to 6 million new direct
cost research dollars to the University.
Some examples of current center research includes: transgenic models of platelet activation
(Gartner, MMCS), alcohol and stress interactions (Mathews and Mittlemen, Psychology;
Sutter, MMCS), cardiomyopathy and electrical-induced ventricular fibrillation, (Malkin,
Biomedical Eng), Zebrafish Development (Lessman, MMCS), adenosine receptor function
(Parrill, Chemistry and Hayes Sutter, MMCS).
Center members who submit their grants through the center will receive a percent of
their indirect cost back to them, to further support their research.
