The University of California, Irvine research department is growing after spending over $340 million last year in research and development. The recent spending will allow the university to expand and continue its research in the sciences.Read More
Did you know that the science community at the University of California, Davis Medical Center is one of the West Coast’s top medical research facilities, and is an active consumer of millions of dollars in lab equipment and supplies annually?Read More
The best course of action for those affected with congestive heart failure, which affects millions of Americans, is most often a heart valve transplant. Since the condition is so prevalent, however, there are seldom enough donors to meet the rising demand for replacement valves.
Thanks to recent funding given to the University of California, San Diego, those affected by congestive heart failure may have renewed hope in the form of ongoing stem cell bioresearch projects.Read More
Make no bones about it; scientists at University of California, Davis are finally fleshing out the intricacies of skeletal stem cells. According to a university press release, UC Davis surgeons have launched a “proof-of-concept” clinical trial to test the safety and efficacy of a device that can rapidly concentrate and extract young cells from fluid used during orthopaedic surgery. The new approach may prove essential to delivering stem cell therapy to stubborn, non-healing bone fractures.Read More
Much like planning a road trip, reprogramming human stem cells relies on developing a list of sequential actions, or a “roadmap” of sorts, after which it is little more complicated than following the prescribed directions. Without an accurate roadmap for the human stem cells, however, researchers at University of California, Los Angeles had to develop their own.Read More
Researchers at Colorado State University have received a blizzard of funding thanks to the philanthropy of two prominent Coloradoans. The largest cash donation in university history of $42.5 million donation has been made by philanthropists John and Leslie Malone, who made their fortune in the cable television industry, and will create a new center and associated programs for stem-cell and other regenerative medical research at CSU. $32.5 million will fund construction of a new building for the institute, while $10 million will fund operations. The $32.5 million gift requires a match of donations for construction and will launch CSU’s Institute for Biologic Translational Therapies to investigate new medical remedies for a variety of ailments in humans and animals.Read More
