Professor Robert Murphy secures $2.5M from the National Science Foundation to continue groundbreaking research in location proteomics
Robert Murphy, PhD, Professor of Biological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering, has been awarded $2.5 M as part of a $9.4 M multi-institutional grant entitled "Next-Generation Bio-Molecular Imaging and Information Discovery". Together with his collaborators at the University of California-Santa Barbara, the University of California-Berkeley, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Murphy will develop and automate innovative computational tools designed to acquire, process, and interpret intracellular images. Such tools will facilitate the extraction of previously undecipherable information from cells, enabling better understanding of cellular changes underlying the pathogenesis of various diseases. The grant will also be used to train graduate students in computational biology.
