The use of a multiplexing device, which can simultaneously analyze up to 100 proteins in a single sample, will resolve all the problems reported and will allow new studies to be designed. The real-time PCR equipment requested will be essential for the study of new drugs as well as applications such as gene expression and detection of single nucleotide polymorphisms. One update accessory requested in conjunction with the thermal cycler allows access to a powerful, easy to use tool that eliminates intensive pipetting steps and provides gene expression results to meet a high demand. The Bauru School of Dentistry currently has 76 researchers in two graduate programs, which involve the direct participation of 182 graduate students, as well as several undergraduate researchers and interns. These researchers will benefit from the acquisition of the multiplexing system and the real-time PCR equipment, as will researchers at other research centers, such as the Lauro de Souza Lima Institute (through Dr. Ana Paula Trombone) and the São Paulo State University Bauru Campus (through Dr. Sandra Lia do Amaral) and Araçatuba Campus (through Dr. Sandra Helena Penha de Oliveira). The acquisition of this equipment is of paramount importance for setting up the Laboratory of Immunology and Cell Biology and the Laboratory of Pharmacology, enabling projects in the clinical areas (dentistry, periodontics etc.), as well as in the areas of anatomy, pharmacology, immunology and microbiology, and will contribute to greater integration between researchers of this school and those of other centers.
