UC San Diego has received federal support to continue its efforts to develop new treatments and, ultimately, find a cure for HIV/AIDS. A five-year, $15 million grant has been awarded to the university’s Center for AIDS Research by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). The grant signals the federal agency’s support of the university’s research efforts that started in 1994, the height of the AIDS epidemic.Read More

Voeltz, a cellular cartographer, has been looking looking more closely at the ER and is finding its is more like a lacey, vibrating coral, spread out across the cell membrane with organelles clinging to it “like ornaments on a tree.” than separate organelles as once thought.Read More
UC Davis School of Medicine in Sacramento ranked in the top 20 percent of national medical schools for research funding by the National Institute of Health (NIH). According to the 2017 report issued by the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, the school received $176 million to fund 356 grant proposals last year. This placed UC Davis at 26th in the nation for NIH funding.
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center has been awarded a five-year, $46.5 million NIH grant to continue groundbreaking research programs at its Colorado Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CCTSI).Read More
University of California San Francisco recently received a $2,370,047 grant from the National Institutes of Health(NIH). This is the fourth year that funding has been allocated for a $17 million multi-center study to improve long-term survival of kidney transplant recipients.
The goal is to reduce or eliminate inflammation in kidney transplant patients and prevent decline in function. The study involves two clinical trials and simultaneous research by biologists and researchers.Read More

Recent research at the University of Colorado, Boulder has focused on the effects that human gut microbes have on stress. One study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2017 found that mice injected with the bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae developed higher levels of an enzyme linked to serotonin production in the brain.Read More

UC Berkeley neuroscientists are creating technology that can fool the brain into thinking it has felt, seen or sensed something that it has not. The goal is to read neural activity and learn which sets of neurons to activate in order to simulate the pattern of an actual brain response. This technique might someday be used to replace lost sensations after peripheral nerve damage or control a prosthetic limb.Read More
