National Functional Genomics Center

1 recipient will receive $8,144,000. This is a continuing earmark.
Year Enacted: 2005
Description: The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center proposes to establish the National Functional Genomics Center (NFGC), an innovative alignment of academic, governmental, and commercial interests to develop new technologies in molecular medicine to advance the early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The resolution of the human genome into separate genes was the first step in understanding disease processes; unraveling of the functional significance of these genes is central to solving the problems posed by the common adult cancers and other diseases. The NFGC has been proposed to track the genetic changes involved in cancer, allowing the design of more effective therapeutic agents and a better understanding of the hereditary and environmental influences that cause cancer. The NFGC is an integrated research program focusing on gene expression analysis, genetics, proteomics, and translational research, with a bioinformatics program to support the analysis and interpretation of gene expression data.
