Dr. Richard D. Smith of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory presented the science lecture at the September 16 meeting of the advisory council for the National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). His topic was “New Proteomics Technologies: From Systems Biology Research to Broad Clinical Application.” Smith directs the NCRR-funded Proteomics Research Resource for Integrative Biology at PNNL. He explained how this program builds on technologies developed for DOE missions. The importance of DOE’s Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory for his program was noted. The NCRR is a cross-disciplinary unit of NIH with an annual budget of $1.1 billion. It is responsible for providing resources used by large numbers of biomedical scientists. Several of the resources are located at DOE National Laboratories.
