Cincinnati Business Courier: Cincinnati Children’s lands third largest grant ever

UC faculty partner with Cincinnati Children's

Cincinnati Business Courier reports that Cincinnati Children’s has landed $28 million in federal funding – the hospital's third-largest single grant ever – to establish a data management and coordinating center for an agency that oversees researchers seeking cures for hundreds of rare diseases.

The five-year grant from the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, one of the National Institutes of Health, will fund a coordinating center to facilitate studies involving thousands of scientists across the United States and 22 other nations.

The center based at the hospital in Avondale will collect, organize, share and analyze big data about rare diseases that are often disabling or fatal. The data management and coordinating center will be led by three senior Children’s scientists and University of Cincinnati College of Medicine faculty members.  They include Eileen King and Dr. Maurizio Macaluso, both professors in the UC Department of Pediatrics, and Peter White, professor and chair of the UC Department of Biomedical Informatics.
