|On September 29, 2002 the NHLBI funded 10 highly interactive, multi-disciplinary
Proteomic Centers to enhance and develop innovative proteomic technologies
and apply them to relevant biological questions that will advance
our knowledge of heart, lung, blood, and sleep health and disease.
This NHLBI Proteomics Initiative is intended to complement and enhance
the NHLBIs ongoing research programs, which include a substantial
investment in clinical research, genomic research, basic biology,
technologies, and training and education programs.
