University of New Hampshire launches biomedical research network with $5.6 million grant

DURHAM, N.H.--The University of New Hampshire has received $5.6 million from the National Institutes of Health to stimulate biomedical research across the state. The New Hampshire Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (NH-BRIN) established with the three-year grant is part of a national program to improve health-related research in states that have lacked the resources to compete effectively for federal dollars.

A dedication was held recently for NH-BRIN at the university's Center for Structural Biology, home to $1.5 million worth of instrumentation that has been procured with the grant. UNH is first in the world to acquire two of these instruments, including a robotic "picker and spotter" that can process nearly 400 protein samples in one session.

Funding for NH-BRIN comes from the National Centers for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health.

"This is a grant that will have direct reverberations throughout the state," notes Vernon Reinhold, a UNH chemist and biochemist who directs NH-BRIN. "Its goal is to bring improved science understanding and capabilities to students and faculty members across the state--and ultimately to bring the best and brightest to UNH. This clearly should make our scientists more successful in acquiring national funding, and what better way to start than by supporting our undergraduate schools and providing established investigators with state-of-the-art instrumentation."

The funding has allowed the university to hire three new researchers, set up a network of collaborating researchers and students at eight institutions across the state, and purchase more than $1.5 million in instruments.

Drawing on the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology, NH-BRIN is fostering research on products of gene expression, its proteins, and how these fundamental components of life lead to cellular function. This understanding can have profound implications for hum
