Lab suppliers interested in taking advantage of life science marketing opportunities at universities with a wealth of life science research funding may be interested in the latest NIH funding awarded to Georgetown University. The NIH awarded Georgetown University $6.4 million this year for its department of internal medicine. The funding organization within the NIH was the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.
The program receiving this $6.4 million in life science research funding is the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science, which is a partnership between Georgetown University and Howard University affiliated with three hospitals. Dr. Joseph G. Verbalis, a Professor of Medicine and Physiology and Chief of the Division on Endocrinology and Metabolism at Georgetown University, is listed as the project leader. According to Georgetown University, Dr. Verbalis has been continuously funded as a PI on NIH research grants since 1988.
The NIH RePORTER project abstract sheds more light on the goals of the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science:
“The specific aims of GHUCCTS are: 1) To speed improvements in human health by stimulating innovative, multidisciplinary, and cross-institutional research among the GHUCCTS investigators; 2) To support the careers of clinical and translational investigators through a wide variety of didactic educational programs coupled with focused mentorship; and 3) To enhance clinical and translational research on underserved populations, both in the Washington DC region and nationally, prominently including minorities, the aged, and the disabled. To accomplish these aims, we will integrate our existing NCRR-funded programs, including two existing MOI-funded GCRCs at GU and HU and our successful multi-institutional K30 program, with a new and innovative hospital, practice- based, laboratory-based, and community-based research infrastructure for clinical and translational science. “

According to recent NSF and NIH research funding statistics, Georgetown University receives a great deal of life science research funding from external funding organizations. The NSF alone awarded the university $6 million in research funding. In addition to receiving NSF funding, Georgetown University was also awarded $51 million in life science research funding by the NIH in 2012.
