Congratulations to Drs. Andreas Friedl (Lead PI), Karla Esbona (Co-PI), and Kristina Matkowskyj (Co-I) for being awarded a UW Research Core Revitalization Program grant for 2022-2023! Support for this grant, titled “Acquisition of nCounter MAX system for multiplex in situ analysis of nucleic acids and proteins”, was provided by the UW Core Revitalization Program supported by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education. Additional support was provided by the UW Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, UW Carbone Cancer Center, and UW School of Medicine and Public Health.
This award will fund the NanoString nCounter MAX Analysis system within the UW Translational Research Initiatives in Pathology (TRIPath) Laboratory in the UW Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine on the 2nd floor of the UW Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR) building. The TRIPath laboratory provides high quality services in cellular, molecular, quantitative, and computational pathology. The nCounter system allows for research in molecular and spatial (GeoMx system) profiling in order to characterize the functional genomic landscape of various human diseases and animal models.
