Researchers at Harvard University were recently awarded $2.1 million by the NIH for a project titled “Dissecting the Establishment and Regulation of Human Pluripotency.” The NIH RePORTER describes in detail the specifics of the project in the project’s abstract, written by the Harvard researchers:
Researchers at Harvard University received a $9.8 million grant from the NIH this year for the New England Regional Center of Excellence in Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases Research. The project leader is listed as Dr. Dennis Kasper. According to the Harvard University website, Dr. Kasper and his research team are interested in the interactions of microbes, including commensals and pathogens, with the immune system. The NIH RePORTER goes into further detail about the organization receiving NIH funding:
While the biotechnology and medical-device industries are growing as a whole nationwide, Massachusetts added over 8,000 jobs in these sectors in the past five years. Even more interestingly, the life science industry’s employment rate has increased 12% across the country since 2000, but Massachusetts’ grew at a rate exceeding twice that number. The Massachusetts Life Science Center has a great deal to do with life science employment in the Boston area. Lawmakers continue to fund the center generously given its healthy economic impact on the state.
Harvard Medical School is a funding and research mecca that attracts millions of dollars in grants every year.
