Collaborating Projects

The Center is currently involved with several Collaborating Projects that represent a broad range of biomedical research endeavors. These projects, funded by grants from the NIH, engage the personnel and resources of the Center to develop new tools and technologies that enable biomedical science and advance the goals of both the Center, and the collaborators.
