$6M in Life Science Funding Given to UCSD for Translational Sciences

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Nov 06, 2013

Lab suppliers interested in meeting researchers with life science funding available to stock their labs in San Diego will want to take note of the latest life science funding news at the University of California, San Diego. Researchers at the University of California, San Diego received a $6 million grant from the NIH this year. The money will go towards the San Diego Clinical and Translational Research Institute and will fund the internal medicine department and the school of medicine.

The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences is the administering institute within the NIH that has awarded the University of California, San Diego this funding. Gary Firestein is listed as the project leader at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Firestein works as a professor of medicine and is Dean and Associate Vice Chancellor of Translational Medicine. The NIH RePORTER goes into further detail about the goals of the San Diego Clinical and Translational Research Institute:

“The program goals are to: 1) Provide an academic home for the discipline of clinical and translational science; 2) Establish an integrated educational pipeline to train and support clinical and translational scientists; 3) Develop a robust clinical research infrastructure that replaces silos with integrated research; 4) Enhance bioinformatics capabilities that leverage unique UCSD resources; 5) Develop novel technologies to improve research such as biomarker and imaging; 6) Form a Translational Research Alliance with research institutes and industry; 7) Form a Community Alliance with community physicians and the general public to translate scientific discoveries into best practices, increase research into health care disparities, and involve the general public in biomedical science.“
