Organization and Goals of Molecular Resources

Organization of Molecular Resources

The NIAID/NIH FR3 Center--Molecular Resources Division was launched in Dr. Steven Williams's laboratory at Smith College , Northampton, MA, in September 2003.  The primary goals of the Center are to:

  1. distribute molecular reagents to the filarial research community,
  2. develop new molecular reagents that will be useful to the research community,
  3. develop and make available new molecular methods in filarial research, and
  4.  to coordinate and distribute information and data useful to the filarial research community as a whole (for example, progress and results using the new Brugia microarrays).

We are open to suggestions from the community as to other services that could be offered by the Center (within the constraints of our budget of course!).  Please submit suggestions to Steven Williams at .


We are located in Ford Hall, 100 Green Street, Smith College, Northampton, MA 01063, USA.
