Are you a lab supplier working to sell lab equipment in Seattle? If so, you may be interested to know that the University of Washington receives a wealth of life science research funding every year, and there’s an easy way to meet researchers interested in purchasing lab equipment on campus. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. organizes life science marketing events on the campuses of top-tier research institutions throughout the year. Our Seattle BioResearch Product Faire™ Event will be held on October 24th, 2013.
Researchers at the University of Washington, Seattle, led by Mary Disis, MD, recently received a $9 million grant from the NIH for the school’s Institute of Translational Health Sciences this year. According to the University of Washington’s website, some of Disis’s published works include studies published in Cancer Research, the Journal of Immunology, and Clinical Cancer Research. The NIH RePORTER includes the following information about the institute receiving the $9 million NIH grant:
Ever since the 1940s, scientists, researchers, and medical professionals alike have been striving to understand why human bodies reject foreign objects, namely transplants. The first research to be done on this topic was by British researcher Peter Medawar during this time period, and for his founding of this scientific field of transplantation biology he received a Nobel Prize.
Researchers at the University of Washington and the University of California, Riverside have received $2 million in the form of a four-year grant from the NIH to identify the 3-D structure of the parasite that causes malaria, Plasmodium's, genome during its erythrocytic cycle. According to News Medical, this cycle takes place over 48 hours and can repeat for a number of days or even weeks in humans.
Biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers in Seattle will find one of the best markets in the country for laboratory equipment sales at the University of Washington, Seattle, as recent NIH and NSF research funding statistics show. In 2012, the NIH awarded the university $442.5 million in research funding. The funding was distributed among a number of different projects in various science disciplines. Of the best-funded departments awarded research funding at the University of Washington, the money was awarded as listed below.
