[Source: ASU News] - On behalf of the White House, ASU Regents Professor and Biodesign Institute researcher Stuart Lindsay, PhD, was honored for his innovative efforts to bring low-cost DNA sequencing to the masses.
Lindsay was one of many outstanding scientists who joined Vice President Joe Biden in a Washington gathering to coincide with the release of the Recovery Act Innovation Report. The report highlights contributions in new fields of investigation with a high likelihood of enabling growth and investment in biomedical research and development.
As part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009, the National Institutes of Health established a new program entitled Research and Research Infrastructure “Grand Opportunities,” or the “GO” grants program. Lindsay’s two-year, $1.7 million project, funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), supported work at ASU’s Biodesign Institute to boost research on rapid DNA sequencing technology.
