Virginia Commonwealth University and Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Formalize Agreement to Develop Closer Scientific Cooperation

Virginia Commonwealth University and the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center have announced plans to work closely together on health research. The parties have signed an informal agreement with a common goal of moving important findings from the lab to the clinic and community more efficiently. Faculty members from both institutions plan to collaborate on a range of projects building off already successful partnerships. The memorandum of understanding signed by VCU and Penn State is built around the National Institutes of Health's Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA). The two institutions are among 62 academic research centers in the nation to receive CTSAs, which are intended to spur collaboration around scientific health discoveries. Working together, the institutions' CTSAs will promote collaboration among their scientists and develop training programs between VCU and Penn State. Specific purposes of the agreement include strengthening and building informatics capabilities, attaining national recognition for community-engaged research, fostering innovation in clinical and translational science and creating a collaborative education program. Another important area of cooperation will be the identification, evaluation, protection, transfer and commercialization of technologies.

Protea Biosciences Group, Inc. Enters into Collaborative Research Agreement with Virginia Commonwealth University and its Center for Molecular Imaging

Protea Biosciences Group Inc. announced that it has entered into a Collaborative Research Agreement with Virginia Commonwealth University and its Center for Molecular Imaging. The research focuses on the combination of LAESI, Protea's ex vivo molecular imaging mass spectrometry technology platform, with VCU's in vivo molecular PET, SPECT and MRI/MRS imaging capabilities, in hopes of developing new methods to better elucidate the molecular basis of cancer, Alzheimer's and other human disease. LAESI (short for Laser Ablation Electrospray Ionization) was developed by Protea to rapidly generate imaging profiles of the biomolecules present in cells and tissue sections. The LAESI DP-1000 allows the direct identification of biomolecules in living cells and bacterial colonies, with analysis completed in seconds to minutes. Thus, molecular changes that occur in cells over time can be identified and tracked.
