Abstract:

During the last FY of the award, the Cancer Institute of Long Island benefited from CDMRP funding in a manner consistent with the proposed activities of the award. In the area of core instrumentation acquisition, an Olympus upright microscope has been added and integrated in to the previously funded two-photon system. The new instrument is essential for in vivo imaging for mice and rats. The previously funded Zeiss TIRF Microscope system is now operational. A new, state-of-the-art VisualSonics small animal ultrasound has been brought online to support mouse tumor models. The University has endeavored to create a Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Core to support cancer research activities for cancer researchers. Consistent with the funding for this initiative were the granting of multi-year RSU packages, or Research Support Unit. RSUs are a mechanism to ensure necessary support for junior faculty and work as enhancements to enable the successful establishment of their laboratories. The final year of funding for Dr. Mirjana Maletic-Savatic, M.D., Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Neurology new RSU was provided via this mechanism. Her laboratory is now fully established and operational.
