The National Chemical Genomics Center, Rockville, Maryland
We are leaving tomorrow, Nov. 26, 2008, for a special meeting to discuss accelerating research into Niemann Pick Type C disease at the National Chemical Genomics Center (NCGC) located in Rockville, Maryland.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) established the NCGC to create a national resource for the study of protein and cell functions so they can learn more about the biology of diseases and genetics.
We are going to get a tour of the state-of-the-art high throughput screening robotic operation and we can’t wait to learn more. The NCGC is one component of the NIH’s Roadmap Initiatives, an innovate project to create research centers, teams and technologies to accelerate new discoveries in biomedical research.
