GenSAT (Gene Expression Nervous System Atlas) project announced

l Institutes of Health (NIH), had the foresight to generously fund the Gensat Project in the context of their ongoing efforts to create a gene expression atlas of the nervous system, well before the tools and systems required to conduct the project had been refined. Their support during the development phase of this project was crucial in its realization.

Heintz and Hatten also have relied on the Rockefeller University's tradition of supporting researchers undertaking risky, but potentially important science.

"Without the university's support in addition to that of the NIH, this project would have been an uphill effort," says Hatten. "Rockefeller has funded all computer systems, a full-time software programmer, as well as found precious lab space for the researchers working together on this project."

"A lot of scientists form companies," says Heintz. "We thought about that, too, but we were fortunate enough to have the strong support of the NIH, our home institution, The Rockefeller University, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Now, we are free to allow this valuable information and the tools we created to be shared with scientists everywhere, not just reserved for those with the financial resources to buy data and tools." The NINDS and the university have helped fulfill Heintz and Hatten's goal of keeping this project truly public.
