The mission of the Chicago Biomedical Consortium is to stimulate collaboration among scientists at Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago that will transform research at the frontiers of biomedicine.
Self-assembling Nanomaterials to boost Biomedical Applications
Joel Collier (UChicago), together with Chad Mirkin and Milan Mrksich (NU), and David Eddington (UIC) received a CBC Lever Award in 2010 for a project titled: Nanomaterials for Cancer Diagnostics and Therapeutics. The CBC Lever Award matched a National Cancer Institute (NCI) Award to help establish a collaborative network of Centers of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence (CCNEs). Collier is a senior author on a paper, “Gradated assembly of multiple proteins into supramolecular nanomaterials”, that was published June 15, 2014 in Nature Materials and is attributed to the CBC Lever Award. The reported novel technology is likely to be utilized in a variety of biomedical applications such as diagnostics, vaccines and other therapeutics.

CBC Scholar Stefan Kathman receives the ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry Predoctoral Fellowship
The CBC is proud to announce that CBC Scholar Stefan Kathman has received an ACS Division of Medicinal Chemistry Predoctoral Fellowship for the 2014-2015 academic year. Congratulations Stefan!
Advanced Imaging Center at HHMI Janelia: Call for Proposals
The Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at HHMI's Janelia Research Campus invites proposals from scientists who are addressing significant scientific questions that require measurements of cellular/molecular behavior at spatial and/or temporally resolutions that would only be possible for them through access to the AIC. Proposal submission deadline is August 15, 2014.
CBC invites new Postdoctoral Research Grant Applications
The Application submission site is now open and will close at 5 PM on Wednesday, July 30, 2014. ONLY POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS WHO SUBMITTED LOIs ARE ELIGIBLE TO SUBMIT APPLICATIONS.

Registration EXTENDED for 2014 CBC Summer 2014 Workshop in Proteomics and Informatics
CBC invites postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, staff, and faculty to participate in our 7th annual hands-on Summer Workshop in Proteomics and Informatics at the CBC/UIC Mass spectrometry Metabolomics and Proteomics Facility, August 11-14, 2014. For more information and registration details click here.
Open Access Initiative Announced
With the help of the CBC, investigators can now use core facilities at all three CBC universities at "in house" cost. CBC University Provosts have signed a pioneering Memorandum of Understanding that allows researchers from the three schools to access a partner's instrumentation and expertise without paying additional F&A charges.
CBC Funding Deadlines and Events
CBC invites new applications in several award programs. In addition, new CBC-sponsored educational opportunities in biomedical sciences are announced.
Today at NU, UChicago & UIC
TODAY is Sunday, July 27, 2014
Please check back for upcoming events.
Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline open for business
Supported by a CBC Lever Award, the Chicago Synthetic Antibody Pipeline (CSAP) is now open to the CBC community. CSAP is a high throughput pipeline designed to produce the next generation of affinity reagents: customized synthetic antibodies (sABs). CBC researchers can nominate protein antigens as targets for sAB generation using existing technology and/or apply for Pilot Projects that will focus on developing ways to extend the applications of the sAB technology.
