$7.2M in Life Science Funding for Genetic Disease Study Awarded to UCLA

  
  
  
  
new life science grant awarded to UCLA researchers

The National Institutes of Health has awarded the University of California, Los Angeles a $7.2 million life science grant to study genetic diseases and develop ways to diagnose rare genetic disorders. UCLA is the only university on the West Coast and one of only three in the United States with a laboratory that can carry out genomic sequence directly usable for patient care, making it the ideal university to receive this life science grant.

Oregon Health and Science University along with two other public Oregon schools recently opened a new life sciences building, the state’s largest academic building, on Portland’s South Waterfront. The project received $110 million in life science funding from taxpayers, $92 million in funding from Oregon Health and Science University institutional funding, $83 million from OHSU philanthropy and $10 million from the TriMet regional mass transit agency. The riverfront property for the new research building was donated by the Schnitzer family to help OHSU increase its campus presence in Portland.

OSU Drug Explodes E. Coli

If a malicious bacterium seems particularly hardy in the face of current treatments, it’s probably only because we haven’t discovered its secret weakness. This seems to be the prevailing ideology at Ohio State University: earlier this month we saw how deactivating a single gene starves Salmonella and renders it essentially harmless. Now OSU researchers have pinpointed a protein in E. coli that, when inhibited, causes the bacteria to explode.

Life Science Funding Totals $3M at Oregon State in New NIH Grant

  
  
  
  
Life science funding awarded to Oregon State researcher

The Oregon State University Superfund Research Program recently received $3 million in life science funding from the National Institutes of Health. This multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary and multi-institution program makes its goal the development of new technologies to assess polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) present at many Superfund sites and the analysis of the potential risk these hydrocarbons may have for people who come in contact with them. The NIH Project Information page goes into more details on the goals of the Oregon State University Superfund Research Program:

$3.1M in Life Science Funding for U. Oregon Zebrafish Database

  
  
  
  
life science funding awarded to U. Oregon researcher

Researchers at the University of Oregon, Eugene recently received $3.1 million in life science funding from the National Institutes of Health to fund a zebrafish model organism database. Dr. Monte Westerfield, the project leader, is a professor of biology at the University of Oregon. His research interests include understanding the mechanisms that regulate the differentiation of neurons as well as understanding the molecular genetics of ear and eye and development. The NIH Project Information page provides more details on the goals of the study receiving this latest round of life science funding:

Though the word “photosynthesis” is less than 150 years old, modern society considers the process largely fundamental and simple. The truth is, though researchers make attempts to replicate and optimize photosynthesis, as we’ve seen UIUC researchers do, it is still not fully understood. The puzzles behind the inner workings of photosynthesis have caught the attention of biophysicists at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and have led them to unravel some of the mysteries in order to enhance the effectiveness of artificial photosynthesis methods.

researchers receieve new life science grant at UCSD

The University of California, San Diego recently received $5.3 million in life science funding from the National Institutes of Health for the university’s Clinical and Translational Research Institute. Researchers were given notice of their new life science grant on June 7th, 2014 by the administering organization within the NIH providing the funding, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego went into more detail on the NIH website as to how the life science funding would be used:

Researchers at the University of Oregon have used the Electroencephalogram (EEG) electrode to tape the rhythm of memory as memories occur in near real time in the human brain. This research includes 25 student subjects and is led by Professor Edward Awh in the University of Oregon Department of Psychology and Institute of Neuroscience.
