Grant: Martin Schiller

Martin Schiller (Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine) received a total of $185,000 from the National Institutes of Health for his project “A Novel High-Throughput Functional Screen Using Chimeric Minimotif Decoys.” Minimotifs (short stretches of amino acids found in cell proteins), along with the proteins comprising them, ensure proper cell function, and understanding how these functions are executed is critical to diagnosing and curing diseases such as cancer that develop due of protein misregulation. The funding will support the development and testing of a novel chimeric minimotif decoy screen that identifies the roles of various cellular functions at the molecular level.
