We invite lab suppliers to meet with researchers at the University of California Irvine's $329M life science research marketplace.
The University of California, Irvine’s commitment to research ranks the school among the top 100 universities in the nation for life science R & D expenditures.
The campus’s commitment to research extends into areas such as:
- Health-related issues such as cancer and infectious diseases
- Neurodegeneration, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, learning and memory
- Stem cell therapies
- Environmental and evolutionary studies
In March, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) approved a $3.7 million, five-year grant to extend Dr. Eric Chow’s research into improving treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in childhood cancer survivors. Dr. Chow is a clinical researcher, epidemiologist, and pediatric oncologist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. This is one of two research grants to be awarded to Dr. Chow by the National Cancer Institute. The NCI also chose to extend Dr. Chow’s study of the long-term efficacy of a medication meant to minimize or prevent heart injury in pediatric patients going through chemotherapy. This $2.7 million in research funding will allow for four more years of studies regarding the use of dexrazoxane in pediatric cancer patients.Read More

The National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIAID) awarded University of California, Irvine $9.6 million to study the impact of environmental changes on malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. This research funding establishes UCI as one of the International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR).Read More
Electric catfish is the common name for the catfish that belong to the Malapteruridae family. Several species of this family can produce an electric shock of up to 350 volts. To do this the use electric organ known as electroplaques. This electrogenic organ is derived from anterior body musculature and lines the body cavity. Electric catfish are found in tropical Africa and the Nile River. Some species feed primarily on other fish, incapacitating their prey with electric discharges. However the majority are generalist bottom feeders. The largest species can grow to up four feet long.Read More

This building connects to the Doris Stein Building and the Edie & Lew Wasserman Building to make up the UCLA Stein Eye Institute. Combined, the three buildings provide nearly 300,000 square feet of functional space with over 20 specially equipped laboratories to support vision science investigations.Read More
August 24Five UC San Diego research teams will be able to bring their innovation one step closer to marketing thanks to the Institute for the Global Entrepreneur (IGE). Each team received up to $50,000 in new research funding so they can field test their prototypes. By being selected to join the IGE’s new technology accelerator program the teams will also receive $25,000 in expert consolations and facility access to the Nano3 clean-room labs as well as the world class Prototyping Facility at the UC San Diego’s Qualcomm Institute. Four of the five projects cover advances in medical device and diagnostic technologies. The fifth works with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology for use in autonomous-vehicle navigation.

Columbia University Medical Center’s new, state-of-the-art medical and graduate education building was completed in time to open for the fall term. Construction of the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center began in September of 2013. The building was designed to reshape the look and feel of the Medical Center campus and to create spaces that facilitate the development of skills essential for modern medical practice. This 100,000-square-foot, glass, concrete and steel center’s most distinguishing feather is a network of social and study spaces distributed along an exposed, interconnected vertical staircase, known as the “Study Cascade” which extends the height of the 14 story building.
