USC recently opened the USC Stevens Hall for Neuroimaging, the new home for the Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute. The sleek, modern, state-of-the-art research building is located on the southern edge of USC's Health Sciences Campus and will help accelerate research on neurological disorders such as autism and Alzheimer’s Disease.Read More
Duke received a $28 Million grant from the NIH to discover immunologic research directed at tackling major scientific problems that hinder the development of an effective HIV-1 vaccine. The vaccine strategy will be based on identifying and targeting novel HIV-1 vulnerabilities to B, T and NK cell immune responses and then using this information to design vaccines that will induce protective immunity at the time and location of HIV-1 transmission.Read More
UC Davis Health scientists are pursuing a new approach to repairing the birth defect that causes spina bifida. $5.66 million in research grant funding from The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) will allow a UCD research team to continue its work using stem cells and a biomaterial scaffold to fix the defect in the womb.Read More

Recently Rutgers and The University of Pennsylvania researchers received an $18 million grant to be shared, which will examine the effects of tobacco on public Health. This grant, which is an extension of an earlier grant, will provide data that can protect public health and discover regulatory science issues related to tobacco control.Read More
A unique opportunity to advance research into the function of the human brain has been presented to three UCLA neuroscientists. Michele Basso, Dr. Peyman Golshani and Daniel Aharoni have received a $3.7 million, three-year grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop imaging technology to record tens of thousands of neurons with the intent of learning how disease impacts the brain’s function.Read More

According to the NIH, "Genomic medicine is an emerging medical discipline that involves using genomic information about an individual as part of their clinical care (e.g. for diagnostic or therapeutic decision-making) and the health outcomes and policy implications of that clinical use."
In 2018, Duke University was awarded six grants from the National Human Genome Research Institute, a part of the NIH. Two of the grants will total about $9 million over the next 5 years. The first grant establishes the Duke Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine. The second supports a Duke initiative to gather the family medical histories of low-income patients and assess their inherited risk of certain diseases.

Researchers and clinicians at the newly renamed University of Southern California's Epstein Family Center for Sports Medicine will collaborate with the university’s Athletics Department and the Keck School of Medicine to develop innovative injury prevention strategies to not only keep Trojan student-athletes healthy, but also help predict the risk of injury and reinjury. $10,000,000 recently donated by the Epstein Family Foundation will help USC staff achieve this.Read More
Nearly one million American’s live with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). The direct and indirect costs of Parkinson’s, including treatment, social security payments and lost income, total nearly $25 billion per year in the United States. Medications alone average $2,500 per year per patient. Currently, there is no definitive test for PD and, while there are treatments, there is no cure. With the help of over $7.7 million in NIH funding, the Director of the Morris K. Udall Parkinson’s Disease Research Center at Johns Hopkins, Ted Dawson M.D., Ph.D. hopes to change that.Read More
