In yesterday’s blog, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. spotlighted two schools receiving funding from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Funding totaled $2.5 million and will be given to a network of nine institutions searching for a cure for MS including the Mayo Clinic, the University of California at San Francisco, Stony Brook University, the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Children’s Hospital Boston, Texas Children’s Hospital, Loma Linda University, the State University of New York at Buffalo and Massachusetts General Hospital.
According to PR Newswire, multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable and often disabling disease that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the rest of the body. A number of groundbreaking studies have been conducted concerning multiple sclerosis over the past few years, and the disease may soon be a thing of the past if research continues to progress.
Lab suppliers marketing life science solutions and interested in increasing scientific product sales leads at life science marketing events may be interested in two more schools receiving National Multiple Sclerosis Society funding in addition to the Mayo Clinic and the University of California, San Francisco, which were spotlighted yesterday. In addition to receiving funding for multiple clerosis funding, Stony Brook University received $59.3 million in NIH research funding in 2012, while the University of Alabama at Birmingham is situated in a $405 million research and development marketplace and in 2012, received over $191 million in new NIH grants.
