Idaho INBRE in the NCRR Reporter
An Idaho INBRE project funded by a $1 million ARRA grant supplement has been highlighted in the current NCRR Reporter. The article, Recovery Act Funds Fuel Innovative Research Collaborations, describes four collaborative research groups in the US working to “help researchers connect with each other, create and retain jobs, and translate breakthroughs in science and technology into improved patient care”.
The Idaho INBRE project, Creating Real-Time Data Solutions, is being conducted at the Boise VA Medical Center under the guidance of Dr. Denny Stevens. Drs. Andy Wilper and Bill Weppner are working to create a real-time, Web-based system for tracking infectious disease in Idaho. When complete, the system will monitor and track the spread of disease and disseminate the data to health care practitioners and the general public. The University of Washington’s Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) is partnering with Idaho INBRE for this project.
