NYU Receives $1.5 Million From New York State for Stem Cell Research


New York University has received $1.5 million from New York State to continue its work in stem cell research. NYU’s Dean for Science Office within the university’s Faculty of Arts and Science received $553,000 and NYU’s School of Medicine received $999,715. The funding to NYU’s Dean for Science Office will support research conducted by NYU’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology and NYU’s College of Dentistry (NYUCD).

The grants, announced by Governor Eliot Spitzer and Lieutenant Governor David A. Paterson in early January, are part of a $14.5 million funding package under the governor’s stem cell research initiative intended to quickly boost New York State’s biomedical research capability.

In order to be eligible for funding from the stem cell research initiative, an institution must have received at least $1 million in biomedical funding in 2006 from the National Institutes of Health or the National Science Foundation.

At NYU’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology Center, a core group of investigators affiliated with the center performs research focused on regeneration and embryonic cells. The combined efforts of these researchers have created a newly strengthened stem cell research program that is focused on the use of new techniques in systems biology to understand the complex gene networks of stem cells and their differentiation.

NYUCD is home to an established core group of researchers involved in re 500
