Rockefeller to Receive State Money for Stem Cell Research
News Jan 17, 2008
The Rockefeller University is one of 25 institutions to receive a combined $14.5 million from New York State to fund stem cell research and training.
The funds, which are part of a multi-year $600 million initiative overseen by the newly created Empire State Stem Cell Board, will fund new shared equipment and services to support research in more than a dozen Rockefeller labs working to understand the mechanisms of stem cells.
Rockefeller’s grant, for $768,426, will help pay for two pieces of equipment critical to its ongoing stem cell research: a fluorescence activated cell sorter, used to analyze the outcome of experiments on samples of cells grown in culture, and a multiphoton microscope, which uses lasers to help visualize molecular events in individual cells. The university will contribute the money needed to hire and train operators for the new equipment.
