    to biological problems To develop interactions and collaborations the Institute for Advanced Study and Rockefeller will make joint appointments including visiting professors and graduate and postdoctoral fellows fund early stage high risk projects and set up an annual joint conference as well as regular seminars workshops and lectures This unique initiative which draws on the strength of both Rockefeller and the Institute for Advanced Study will open new doors to studying complex biological problems says Paul Nurse Rockefeller University s president By combining techniques from several different scientific disciplines the effort will be well positioned to make breakthroughs in how we understand key processes of life and disease Rockefeller University s Stanislas Leibler head of the Laboratory of Living Matter at Rockefeller has been appointed to a joint professorship as part of this initiative Leibler is interested in the quantitative description of biological systems both on cellular and population levels He held academic appointments at the Research Center of Saclay France and Princeton University before joining Rockefeller University in 2001 as Gladys T Perkin Professor In 2003 he was appointed one of the first Tri Institutional professors at Rockefeller Weill Cornell Medical College and the Sloan Kettering Institute He also is a member of the university s Center for Studies in Physics and Biology which promotes experimental collaborations to study both the physical properties of biological systems and the application of physical techniques to the modeling of biological networks A series of annual conferences will be established as part of this initiative to be named in honor of Joshua Lederberg a Nobel laureate in physiology or medicine and Rockefeller s president from 1978 to 1990 and mathematician John von Neumann a faculty member at the Institute for Advanced Study from 1933 to 1957 Lederberg s and von Neumann s work

  • $400,000 grant creates new fund for translational research at Rockefeller | Newswire
    is now contributing to the research enterprise at Rockefeller We hope that others will join in contributing to this fund to enable it to be a catalyst for better medicine says Russell Pennoyer president of the Achelis and Bodman Foundations The Technology Innovation Fund is aimed at research that is no longer in its early stages but has not yet been developed into a market ready product research that is particularly difficult to fund through traditional sources The National Institutes of Health and other such organizations offer very few individual funding opportunities for this kind of research because they don t consider it basic research Similarly industry resources like pharmaceutical and medical technology companies don t want to fund something until there s a product they can market says Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer Kathleen Denis With this kind of dedicated funding we re poised to give these important projects the push they need to continue Grants may pay for further experimental data for example or to reduce an invention to practice enable a successful patent application or make a technology more commercially interesting to investors Project proposals will be judged along several criteria including novelty of the technology and its likelihood of leading to patents or other intellectual property sufficient demonstration of proof of concept feasibility of budget and timeframe estimates and strength of market potential and cost benefit ratio among other factors Grants will be awarded to four investigators each year for between 30 000 and 70 000 each and for projects of 3 to 12 months duration Proposals will be reviewed and chosen by a committee of life sciences industry and investing professionals Peter Goodfellow former discovery executive at GlaxoSmithKline and a Rockefeller University visiting scholar in 2007 Teena Lerner Rockefeller alumna and founding head of
