J. Craig Venter Institute receives up to $25 million grant from NIH

Scientists from the J. Craig Venter Institute, a not-for-profit genomic research organization with operations in San Diego, have been awarded a five-year grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for up to $25 million.

The grant is intended to establish and operate a Genome Center for Infectious Diseases, according to JCVI. Funding for the center will be awarded throughout the five-year period. JCVI has set a goal of further developing and enhancing basic scientific understanding of infectious diseases by increased focus on and analysis of the pathogens responsible for infectious disease.

JVCI said the findings and outcomes from the work will be available as a resource for the broad scientific community. The research, led by JCVI co-principal investigators Dr. Karen Nelson, JCVI president, and Dr. William Nierman, JVCI infectious disease professor, will involve more than 50 collaborators at approximately 40 research organizations around the world.

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is a division of the federal National Institutes of Health.
