Washington Square, Thomas Jefferson University's newest site location

Thomas Jefferson University is on the forefront of research lab science and healthcare development. Although the university is based in Philadelphia, Thomas Jefferson administrators and research lab scientists envision the school breaking out into the global science research market. Dr. Stephen K. Klasko, president of Thomas Jefferson University, has an innovative plan to unite Thomas Jefferson University, Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals and the institution’s 800 physicians under a single entity.

The National Institute of Health's budget of $29.15 billion in 2013 was, when adjusted for inflation, $5 billion less than the $27.17 billion available in 2003. During the last decade, especially following the government sequester in late 2013, federal funding of the NIH has steadily declined. Almost all biomedical scientists in the United States have been buffeted by funding swings at the NIH, their field’s primary benefactor. Now scientists are forced to look to other sources of funding.

The University of Pennsylvania is currently in the planning stages of constructing a new research campus along the Schuylkill River. The South Bank of the Schuylkill, pronounced ‘SKOO-kəl,’ is a vital component of the University of Pennsylvania’s campus development vision. The Penn Connects 2.0 strategy has added 3 million square feet of space to new UPenn research campuses since 2006.

Biotechnology researchers are beginning to unravel the effects of different breeding grounds on cell cultivation. We saw an example of this last year when OSU bioresearchers developed a titanium “shag carpet” which dramatically increased cell proliferation. In a similar vein, researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor have found a particular type of surface that helps stem cells decide what to grow up to be.
