Science Market Update
For life science researchers, having easy access to data and information is essential. They can use this data to research diseases and further personal research, benefiting other researchers and patients. Oregon Health and Science University in Portland recently received a five-year grant of $15 million from the National Institutes of Health to establish a first-of-its-kind database to contain pediatric cancer and rare disease research.

Oregon State University recently acquired a new, customized $1.6 million ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy system (AP-XPS). The AP-XPS is the first instrument of its kind in the United States to incorporate an ambient-pressure scanning tunneling microscope, or AP-STM, which enables imaging of surfaces with atomic resolution. This high-tech research instrument will make the surface characterization laboratory at OSU’s College of Engineering a major resource for scientists throughout the Pacific Northwest.Read More

Join Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. at the January Texas Medical Center BioResearch Product Faire Event and exhibit at the largest medical complex in the world.
With life science expenditures and NIH funding totaling more than 2.2 billion dollars , the BioResearch Product Faire™ offers an excellent opportunity to meet with well-funded researchers. This is further supported by consistent attendance at these trade shows well in excess of 400 researcher attendees, occasionally breaking 500 researchers in attendance.
Texas Medical Center has a new state of the art medical campus under construction which is estimated for completion in 2019 while the Zayed Building at MD Anderson just opend been opened in 2016. We invite you to join us early next year for Houston’s 18th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™.Read More

There is so much that scientists have yet to learn about the universe, and understanding the matter that makes up the universe is a large task for scientists to undertake. Researchers at Stony Brook University will soon have new opportunities to increase their research thanks to a newly established research center.Read More
Total research and development expenditures for the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) reached an all-time high of $458 million. This is a 31% increase in R&D expenditures since the 2013 fiscal year. Over the past three years, externally funded research activities have climbed by 37% to reach $198 million in fiscal 2017. These expenditures are funded in part by federal grants and contracts. For example: in the first seven months of 2017 the University received 96 research project grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH). They total $37.2 million. The rest of their research funding comes from foundations, corporations, as well as the state of Georgia.Read More

About 1 in every 100 babies born have a congenital heart defect (CHD), a structural defect of the heart. In fact, CHDs are the most common types of birth defect. In one quarter of the cases the condition is serious enough to require surgery or other procedures within the first year of life. Despite the frequency, the cause of most congenital heart defects remains a mystery. And without knowing the cause, scientists are not been able to find a way of preventing these defects.Read More
According to an article for UAB News, 40% of individuals infected with HIV are not currently receiving antiretroviral therapy, which means their disease is not suppressed. The University of Alabama, Birmingham’s Center for AIDS Research recently partnered with state and local agencies in signing the Paris Declaration to eliminate the spread of HIV/AIDS by 2030. Birmingham is the 13th U.S. city to commit to achieving the Declaration’s goals.Read More
