Big Business in Texas for Lab Suppliers

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Dec 07, 2017

Does your Lab Equipment and Product Territory Include Texas?

The Texas Medical Center has recently fostered a $25 million initiative designed to support technologies and early-stage companies and to further the TMC’s mission to advance health, education and research. 

"The Texas Medical Center unveiled plans for the TMC Venture Fund to an audience of more than 600 investors, hospital stakeholders, advisors and members of Houston’s innovation ecosystem" see press release.  For those wondering just how big this is compared to the overall Texas Medical Center research marketplace, current estimates for the size of this market range from $1.8 Billion to  $2.2 Billion.

 

R esearchers from Texas Medical Center are constantly looking for improvements in lab equipment; consumable lab supplies, and high quality research services and they find them at the Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ at Houston's Texas Medical Center.
 
"I talked with several companies with equipment that we can write in to a grant, hopefully purchase in the future."
 
"I came because I am interested in the products and possible promotions from companies. I found specials on items that I plan to order in the immediate future."
 
"Curiosity and innovation brought me to the show today"

Washington University, St. Louis: $6 Million in Leukemia Research Funding

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Dec 07, 2017

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) there are over 380,000 people living with leukemia in the United States. Each year roughly 24,500 people die from the disease and over 62,000 new cases are diagnosed. To improve treatment options for leukemia patients, the NCI recently awarded John DiPersio, MD, PhD of Washington University, St. Louis $6 million in research funding. The Professor of Medicine in Oncology at the university’s School of Medicine will use the seven years of funding to support three major areas of leukemia research in his lab. These include: improving the effectiveness of standard chemotherapy, preventing graft-versus-host disease, and developing new immunotherapies.

What Lab Products are Most in Demand at UCSF Mission Bay?

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Dec 05, 2017

Every year, Biotechnology Calendar Inc. holds at least 2 events at the University of California's UCSF Campus, in order to provide researchers with access to the latest research tools in the industry.  Life science product vendors flock to these events, so they can meet with the nations top funded researchers, and educate them about the products they have to offer.  Typically researchers are surveyed about the products they are most interested in as they enter the event. This year we are sharing some of those results so we can better meet the needs of the researchers attending, and also help laboratory supply companies, better target their markets. Of course, like the mutual fund companies say, past results are not necessarily an indication of future performance.

New Cancer Treatment Breakthrough at U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 04, 2017

The National Cancer Institute awards the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign roughly $5 million in research funding each year. This funding supports a number of cancer research projects conducted at the university. One such project is a ground breaking study of nanoparticles that researchers designed to specifically bind to a protein that marks the surface of breast cancer stem cells and destroy them. These elusive and rare cells can cause cancer to come back years after the tumor has been treated.

USC Receives $19M for BRAIN Initiative Study

Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Nov 30, 2017

In 2013, president Barack Obama initiated a public-private partnership - the BRAIN Initiative - to provide more funding and opportunities for institutions and organizations to study the human brain. This project is led by the National Institutes of Health and includes a new five-year collaborative project, the BRAIN Initiative Cell Census Network consortium that is aiming to identify all cells in a mouse brain to create a catalog of these cells.

Research News: University of Georgia Develops New Model for Stroke Studies

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 27, 2017

According to the CDC, Every 4 minutes, someone in the United States dies of stroke. That’s 140,000 Americans killed by stokes each year. Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability and costs the United States an estimated $34 billion each year.

To help find new treatment options for the nearly 800,000 people who have stokes each year, a team of scientists at The University of Georgia, Athens have developed a new livestock model  that could speed stroke discoveries by providing a better, more predictive transnational model. 

Mice are out and pigs are in:

New Clinical Research Center Opens at Rutgers

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 20, 2017

The University of Rutgers recently opened the Adult Clinical Research Center on its New Brunswick campus. The Adult Clinical Research Center (CRC) is part of the Robert Wood Johnson University school of Medicine. The center outgrew its previous location on the third floor of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and now occupies the 8th floor of the new East Tower medical building adjacent to the Hospital. This 11,646 square foot facility will make it possible for the CRC to double the number of studies they conduct over the next three years. Currently, there are 36 active and 20 pending clinical trials.

Research News: U of Minnesota Grows Blood Vessels in Lab

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 13, 2017

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement that is composed completely of biological materials, yet contains no living cells at implantation. It is the first-of-its-kind nonsynthetic, decellularized graft that becomes repopulated with the recipient’s own cells after implanted. This discovery could help tens of thousands of kidney dialysis patients each year. It could also be adapted for use as coronary and peripheral bypass blood vessels and tubular heart valves in the future.
