Abstract : This infrastructure enhancement grant was awarded on September 15, 1995, for the purpose of expanding a biomolecular shared resource for breast cancer research. The expansion was to provide breast cancer researchers at the Lombardi Cancer Center with a centralized resource for such modern technologies as Mass Spectrometry, Automated DNA Sequencing/Fragment Analysis and Phosphorimaging. As per the purpose of this award, three major pieces of equipment were purchased over the past year. A Molecular Dynamics Phosphorimager System - Model # 445 SI - was purchased on December 16, 1995 for the price of $95,600. An ABI Prism Automated DNA Sequencer/Fragment Analyzer - Model # 377A - was purchased on March 15, 1995 for the price of $136,421. A Sciex LC/MS Ionspray Infusion System-Model # API 100- was purchased on August 1, 1995 for the price of $108,500. These instruments have been or soon will be integrated into the Macromolecular Synthesis and Sequencing Core Facility. The purchase df these pieces of equipment provides breast cancer researchers at the Lombardi Cancer Center with access to the modern technologies of Mass Spectrometry, Automated DNA Sequencing/Fragment Analysis and Phosphorimaging. The grant agreement is now complete.
