Researchers at Rockefeller University, led by Brian Chait, have been awarded a $2.3 million grant by the NIH for the National Resource for the Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Biological Macromolecules. According to the Rockefeller University website, the National Resource for the Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Biological Macromolecules is now in its 39th year of receiving funding from the NIH. The abstract on the NIH RePORTER says of the project:
“It is proposed to continue to operate and extend the cutting edge capabilities of the National Resource for the Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Biological Macromolecules for years 40 through 44. Emphasis will be placed on developing mass spectrometric technology for analyzing peptides and proteins in order to elucidate fundamental biological processes that underlie both normal physiology and diseases that include AIDS, hepatitis C infection, drug addiction, chronic pain, cancer, bacterial infection, typ-2 diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, sleeping sickness, and neuronal degeneration. The major subdivisions of the Resource are: Technological Research & Development (TR&D), Driving Biological Projects (DBPs), Collaboration & Service, Dissemination, and Education. Our three TR&D aims are: (1) Instrument development for increasing sensitivity and signal-to-noise, (2) Methodology development for elucidating 4-dimensional cellular interactomes and (3) Methodology development for elucidating complex high diversity systems including toxins and antibodies.”
Rockefeller BioResearch Product Faire™ Event Spring 2013
Lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment at New York life science marketing events will find that Rockefeller University has a great deal of research funding available for researchers interested in buying life science products. In 2012, the NIH awarded Rockefeller University $70.1 million in research funding. The NIH also ranked Rockefeller University 79th in the country for direct plus indirect costs in the life sciences, excluding R&D expenditures and ARRA awards, in 2011. The total costs that year were $65.4 million. For a full list of departments receiving NIH funding, please visit the NIH website.
The NSF also awarded Rockefeller University $844,385 in research funding in 2012. In addition to awarding Rockefeller University funding, the NSF ranked the school 51st in the country for total R&D expenditures in the life sciences in 2009, with a total of $233.7 million spent.
Given these funding statistics, it’s clear that Rockefeller University is a great market for lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment and market life science products to take advantage of. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. invites all lab suppliers to exhibit at our Rockefeller BioResearch Product Faire™ Event on October 2nd, 2013. Last year, our Rockefeller BioResearch Product Faire™ Event attracted 398 attendees. Of the attendees, 102 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 22 were lab managers. The visitors came from 28 different research buildings and 77 departments across campus.
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. is a full-service science research marketing and events-planning company that has been organizing life science marketing events for 20 years. If you’d like to sell lab equipment and market your life science products at other life science marketing events closer to home, we encourage you to view our 2013 calendar of events.
