GRI Receives $250,000 County Grant
Published November 2007
Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune recently presented UC’s Genome Research Institute (GRI) with a $250,000 grant from the county’s economic development fund.
The grant supports a portion of the cost to purchase a mass spectrometer—located in the GRI’s proteomics core—that will be used for drug discovery.
On hand at the check presentation were (from left to right) Portune; College of Medicine Dean David Stern, MD; George Thomas, PhD, interim director of the GRI; Ken Greis, PhD, head of proteomics at the GRI; and City of Reading Mayor Robert (Bo) Bemmes.
