Secondary Contracting Officer
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the nation’s leading medical research agency and the primary Federal agency whose mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability, conducting, supporting and making medical discoveries that improve people’s health and save lives.
The NCATS is a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with the mission to catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions. The SCTL is a state-of-the-art research facility within NCATS’ Division of Pre-Clinical Innovation dedicated to addressing the scientific and technological challenges in the iPSC field. The SCTL uses an integrated technological approach to better understand pluripotent stem cell biology and thereby leverage drug discovery and regenerative medicine.
The SCTL aims to develop novel cell culture conditions that reduce genomic instability and increase the safety of iPSC technologies. The ATAC-Seq services required are an integral part of the suite of analysis methods that NCATS will carry out to construct a high-resolution “map” of the genomic and epigenomic landscape that controls human pluripotency. The integration of all these analyses will allow NCATS to generate foundational cell culture methods that will be shared with the scientific community.
