Grant Program for 
nCounter® Metabolic Pathways Panel

Be the first at your institution to publish using the human or mouse nCounter Metabolic Pathways Panel.  This gene expression panel contains 768 comprehensive genes across 34 annotated pathways involved in core metabolic processes, cancer metabolism, and immunometabolism. Determine molecular mechanisms behind alterations in metabolic pathways, signaling pathways, and cell stress, and profile potential therapeutic targets such as metabolic checkpoints.

Program Details:

Proposals must involve high-plex gene expression profiling for research projects in metabolism.  Topics of interest include altered metabolic pathways, metabolic disorders, cancer metabolism, and immunometabolism.  One winner will be chosen for each of the different application areas: oncology, immunometabolism, metabolic disorders, and drug development.  Each awardee will be granted 24 samples worth of the NanoString nCounter Metabolic Pathways Panel.

The awardees can run their samples either through an nCounter® Analysis System provided by their institution or through a service provider. NanoString will provide the reagents and a data analysis service to analyze the NanoString output from the experiment in the form of a report that includes raw data and a detailed analysis with figures and commentary.
