School of Medicine to integrate proteomics, bioinformatics resources

The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine is streamlining its proteomics and bioinformatics resources to enhance synergies between the programs.

In a message to the School of Medicine community, Dean Pamela B. Davis, M.D., Ph.D., announced the Center for Proteomics will be renamed the Center for Proteomics and Bioinformatics, and the new Center will consist of three divisions: proteomics and genomics, bioinformatics and macromolecular structure.

In addition to consolidating the existing cores currently based in the Center for Proteomics and the Department of Genetics, the new Center will take part in program development and faculty recruitment. The Center will assign existing faculty to the three main divisions as well as recruit secondary faculty members from the Departments of Genetics, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Computer Science and others with interests in the activities of the Center.

Each area of the new Center also will have a division chief responsible for executing the separate but allied missions within the center. Details are forthcoming.

For information about the Center, go online.
