In the constantly growing research market, new products and technologies are needed to help researchers with their work. The 12th annual BioResearch Product Faire™ event coming up at the University of Arizona, Tucson on December 4th is the perfect place for life science researchers, lab managers, post-docs and purchasing agents to find new supplies for their labs.
This free event provides all lab personnel with the chance to meet with lab product suppliers and sales reps to find the best and newest products and technologies to use in their labs. In the past, the event has drawn over 150 researchers interested in meeting with sales reps in a fun, friendly, and professional environment. Keeping the event small gives those who do come more time to speak with the sales reps to really learn about the products available to them, without feeling hurried because too many other people want to interrupt.Read More

Two researchers at the University of Arizona have an innovative idea for how to raise research funding at a time when federal research dollars are shrinking: the two graduate students in Anna Dornhaus’ social-insect lab have turned to crowd-funding and social media. The method of raising money for research is so new that administrators at the University of Arizona aren’t prepared to deal with it. Faculty and staff will have to wait to follow the graduate students’ lead until the university can figure out a way to defray the “indirect costs” of supervising research.
Researchers at the University of Arizona’s Arizona Cancer Center received a $3.7 million renewal of funding this year for cancer research. Led by David Alberts, who, according to the University of Arizona website, has made his career’s focus researching translational cancer prevention and treatment, the center was awarded the research funding by the NIH earlier this year. Alberts’ research teams work in laboratory-based and clinical research settings studying the chemoprevention and treatment of breast cancer, colon cancer, ovary cancer and skin cancer. The NIH RePORTER provides more information on the Arizona Cancer Center in the funding abstract:
Researchers at the University of Arizona, Tucson recently received a $1.2 million award from the NIH for the Chemoprevention of Skin Cancer Program Project, led by David Alberts, MD. The University of Arizona website says that Alberts has spent his career focusing on translational cancer prevention and treatment research. His main area of expertise is laboratory-based and clinical research investigating the chemoprevention and treatment as such devastating cancers as breast cancer, colon cancer, ovary cancer and skin cancer. He served as the University of Arizona Cancer Center’s director from 2005 to June 2013. The abstract for the project receiving new NIH funding on NIH RePORTER states:
