Project Details


The University of Miami School of Medicine has demonstrated excellence in
performing clinical and basic research dealing with the health problems
associated with drug abuse. To bring together multidisciplinary
approaches to ongoing drug abuse-related research, the University of
Miami School of Medicine has recently established the Comprehensive Drug
Research Center (CDRC). The programs described in this application
relate to the timely topics of the toxicological consequences of cocaine
abuse, perinatal cocaine exposure, and drugs of abuse as possible
co-factors for human immune deficiency (HIV) infection. The
state-of-the-art Finnigan GC/MS /DS Ion Trap Witness System will
significantly enhance the PHS-funded projects and provide new research
directions. The proposed system is optimally configured and fully
capable of meeting present, as well as, the future requirements of the
major users in this application. This proposal discusses the specific
application of the Finnigan MAT GC/MS/DS Witness System by PHS-funded
investigators within the Departments of Neurology and Cellular and
Molecular Pharmacology (Dr. Deborah Mash), the Departments of
Epidemiology and Cancer and Oncology (Dr. Clyde McCoy), and the
Department of Psychiatry (Dr. Bryan Page), the Departments of Psychiatry
and Molecular Biology (Dr. Paul Shapshak), the Department of Psychology
(Dr. Tiffany Fields) and the Division of Neonatology (Dr. Emmalee S.
Bandstra). We propose to house the GC/MS at the toxicology laboratories
at the Metro-Dade County Medical Examiner Department. The newly
constructed facility is located immediately adjacent to the University of
Miami School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital complex.
