Michigan State Awarded $1.5 M in Research Funding to Find Cause of Psychosis

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Apr 06, 2018

When an individual loses touch with reality and sees, hears, or believes things that aren’t real it is referred to as a psychosis. People suffering a psychotic episode often experience the delusion that their actions are being controlled by others, such as the government or aliens. The physiology behind this break with reality remains a mystery. Thanks to a $1.5 million, four-year, grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), scientists at Michigan State University will conduct a study aimed at identifying the brain mechanisms responsible for causing psychosis.

The institute was first established through a $95 million grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC). An additional $55 million was later invested toward the construction and fit-out of the Life Sciences Laboratories building. This building is designed for interdisciplinary research, student training and large-equipment facilities. IALS also fosters spin-out companies and seeks to become a catalyst for a biotechnology hub in Western Massachusetts.

U of Michigan: Seven New Drug Discovery Projects Recieve Research Funding

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Mar 06, 2018

The University of Michigan Center for the Discovery of New Medicines (CDNM) has awarded research funding to seven faculty members from across the U-M campus for new drug development projects. The goal of University of Michigan’s CDNM is to accelerate the path toward commercialization for novel and translational approaches to potential therapies. They do this by assisting investigators with financial support as well as providing guidance and expertise. Pilot grants of up to $50,000 are awarded twice per year. They are chosen based on scientific strength, commercial opportunity and unmet medical need.

UC Berkeley Participating in $65.5M Brain Cell Atlas Project

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Feb 27, 2018

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley are one of many groups benefiting from funding from the BRAIN Initiative, founded by President Obama in 2013. The Berkeley research team, in partnership with a team from the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, have received $65.5 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to catalog all the cells of a mouse brain with the goal of using this catalog to later classify all cells in the human brain.
