Funding Available: NanoBRET™ Technology for Protein Interactions

Up to $5,000 available to Northwestern Investigator
Submission deadline: March 11th, 2016

promegalogo.pngPromega has recently developed an improved method of performing Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer (BRET) to study protein-protein interactions. The NanoBRET™ technique relies upon underlying NanoLuc® Luciferase and HaloTag® technologies to look at these interactions in live-cell systems.

To that end, Promega would like to partner with the Developmental Therapeutics Core to sponsor a Northwestern Investigator to evaluate this technology, generating data toward grant submission and for review amongst their colleagues.

Details on NanoBRET:

If interested, please send a one-page proposal outlining the scope of your study and cover page with contact information and short bio to cdt-info [at] northwestern [dot] edu (subject: Promega%2FDTC%20proposal) .  Proposals will be evaluated by the Assistant Director, and awardee will be notified within three weeks of the submission deadline.
