A quick look at top funded nucleome related projects on the NIH funding site reveals that UCSD still holds the number one position in terms of the total number of funding dollars (See table below). The UCSD based project, overseen by ZHONG, SHENG et al.  focuses on  THE ORGANIZATIONAL HUB AND WEB PORTAL FOR THE 4D NUCLEOME NETWORK.   

UCSD continues to lead in this area. We reported in 2015 that the National Institutes of Health had awarded $30 million in grants for the development of the 4D Nucleome Program at University of California, San Diego. That $120 million NIH project comprised six separate initiatives, with three of the initiatives involving UCSD researchers. UCSD’s involvement in the program at that time included  a five-year, $20.2 million grant to establish the 4D Nucleome Program organizational hub at the university, to“integrate the efforts of all the 4D Nucleome Program’s funded initiatives and promote cooperation and communication among participants”.

At that time additional 4D Nucleome Program initiatives included a five-year, $8.6 million grant to UC San Diego and Ludwig Cancer Research for the creation of the Nuclear Organization and Function Interdisciplinary Consortium, and a five-year, $3 million grant for Imaging Tools. UCSD research teams will create genetically encoded metal nanoparticles and novel paints that will expose specific genes in the DNA and allow researchers to see their nuclear structure. The analysis and storage of these visual genome atlases will be facilitated by the program’s organizational hub.

Network with UCSD Researchers:

Today, UCSD researchers occupy some of the world’s leading medical research facilities, and are among the top funded researcher groups globally.  If you are interested in making connections with active researchers from UCSD and its many well-funded departments, you can attend the 41st Semiannual Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ Event at UC San Diego on February 15, 2018.

Last year, the Biotechnology Vendor Showcase™ Events at the University of California, San Diego attracted 929 attendees from 54 different research buildings and 61 on-campus departments. This event is a unique opportunity for UCSD researchers, lab managers, and life science professionals to learn what’s new in the world of lab equipment, and how it can benefit their important research.

“The Biotechnology show at UCSD provided a wealth of opportunities for brand awareness and business development. The staff and environment both exceeded my expectations, and I felt very supported. We had high hopes for this show and they were met. It was refreshing to engage so many prospects that directly relate to our products and services” - A. E., Exhibitor, UC San Diego BCI event
