Project 1: The Mouse Brain Library Project 2: Internet Microscopy (iScope) Project 3: Neurocartographer and Segmentation of the MBL Project 4: The Neurogenetics Tool Box














Principal Investigator/Program Director Williams, Robert W.

  Operational Plan
Administrative aspects of the operational plan for this program project are discussed in the Administrative Core on page 120 of the application. The quality of network support will play an important role in the success of this project. We have appended letters from network administrators at UT Memphis (pp. 147–148), Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (p. 149), and from administrators at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Drexel University (p. 154) affirming their willingness to provide a high level of support. Resources at UT Memphis in support of this bioinformatics project are extraordinary and are listed in letters from Dr. M. Dockter (Associate Dean for Research) and Dr. S.T. Kitai (Chair of the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology) on pages 144–146 of the application.

The multidisciplinary and multi-institutional structure of this program project will require an engaged program director. Dr. R. Williams is actively involved in virtually all aspects of the work proposed here are will be able to devote a great deal of time and energy to this project and to ensure that communication among the four groups is constant and positive. Dr. Williams has worked for several years with both Drs. Rosen and Manly. Given our progress assembling the MBL, the distance between research centers has not been even the slightest impediment.
