POPULATION RESEARCH CENTER GRANT

    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    This is a competitive renewal application for a Population Center Grant
    (P30) from the Oregon Regional Primate Research Center (ORPRC) that
    requests support for core services to enhance individual research units.
    To access these services, investigators are funded to study issues within
    NICHD goals. Support is requested for six cores; a Cell Culture (CC) Core
    to provide reagents and maintain stable transfectants, a Hormone Analysis
    (HA) Core to perform immunoassays, bioassays, and high-pressure liquid
    chromatography, a Morphology (MOR) Core to assist with tissue and cell
    processing, including suitable methods for immunocytochemistry and
    preparative in situ hybridization, a Molecular Biology (MB) Core to
    generate specific probes and train investigators in their appropriate
    uses, an In Vitro Fertilization-Experimental Embryology (IVF-EE) Core to
    assist researchers in recovery, storage, and utilization of simian
    gametes; blastocysts and support cells, and a core for program
    administration (ADM). Each specialty core is directed by an experienced
    investigator in the proposed technologies who stresses consistent quality,
    efficiency and timely performance. The detection and solution of technical
    problems occur rapidly and development of new methodologies are feasible,
    thereby facilitating individual research projects. Seventeen investigators
    (P.I.s) utilize the multipurpose cores in studies to understand and
    optimize reproductive health in both sexes, although many projects
    emphasize the female. Specific areas of active research include: neuroendocrine events
    influencing the hypophyseal-gonadal axis during sexual development and
    adulthood; endocrine physiology of the menstrual cycle and pregnancy;
    mechanisms of steroid hormone action in the brain and reproductive tract;
    genomic processes in peptide expression and in receptor function;
    paracrine factors in neural and reproductive tissues; in vitro and in vivo
    fertilization; and the importance of photoperiodicity and aging in
    reproductive health. A total of 20 funded and 15 pending grants in these
    research areas seek access to one or more cores. The existence of these
    facilities enhances collaboration among members of these units and
    prevents unnecessary duplication of equipment, personnel and technologies.
