Abstract:

The goal of the 01-05 TATRC grant to the University of Oregon UO was to support the mission of the UOs Brain Biology and Machine Initiative BBMI of establishing a world-leading center linking genomic and proteomics to human cognitive neuroscience research. Toward this overall goal, the TATRC grant provided the following key support 1. The establishment of a 3 Tesla Brain Imaging Center for scanning of human and animals. 2. The installation of high speed computing infrastructure for the integration of fMRI and EEG signals to provide informatics support to the initiative. 3. The development of a center for genomic and proteomic research by making links between individual researchers and the centralized genomic facility. 4. The development of a mammalian genetics center. 5. Support of research projects that move toward the vertical integration across many levels of analysis to link work in genomics and proteomics to studies of cognitive neuroscience. 6. Support recruitment and hiring new faculty to enhance the mission of the BBMI.
