$15 M Federal Funding Supports AIDS Research at UC San Diego

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Mon, Jun 11, 2018

 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.

Boulder BioResearch Update:  Congrats to New $8M HHMI Investigator

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Jun 08, 2018

UC Boulder is a leading US research campus with more than 90 research centers, institutes and laboratories focusing on fields ranging from astrobiology to pharmaceutical biotechnology.  This year UC Colorado boasts a new HHMI investigator - Gia Voeltz.

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.

$2M NIH Life Science Grant for UCSF Kidney Transplant Research Program

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Tue, May 29, 2018

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.

Microbiology Research, Life Science Market Opportunities at CU Boulder

Posted by Leo Zlimen on Thu, May 24, 2018

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.

University of Pittsburgh Opens Ambitious $3M Research Center

Posted by Leo Zlimen on Tue, May 22, 2018

The University of Pittsburgh has opened a brand new, technologically advanced surgical center that will make use of recent discoveries in robotics and machine learning. The Collaborative Research Education and Technology Enhancement in Surgery  Initiative (CREATES) aims to support Pittsburgh’s expanding hub of life science innovation, research and development. The $3-million dollar, 10,000 square foot project will bring scientists from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center together with researchers from Carnegie Mellon, and is looking to establish up to six partnerships with US-based robotic firms.

UC Berkeley Researchers Finding Ways to Edit Brain Activity

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, May 18, 2018

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.

UC Davis Receives $2.5 Million Cancer Research Grant

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, May 18, 2018

Last Fall, UC Davis' Comprehensive Cancer Center  received its first National Cancer Institute (NCI) Moonshot Grant of $2.5 million to research two types of cancers in dogs that are very similar to cancer in humans. 

UC Davis boasts both a world renowned veterinary school and medical school. Researchers are equipped with the tools to examine the link between cancer in dogs and cancer in humans. UC Davis has a Comparative Oncology Program at the Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of very few in the nation.

The program allows for veterinarians and physicians to work together to find creative cancer solutions. Robert Canter, a surgical oncologist at the Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Robert Rehun, a veterinary oncologist, plan to conduct various research trials with the Moonshot Grant.

The trials will be focused on isolating dogs' natural killer cells. Killer cells are white blood cells that are particulary good at eliminating cells infected with viruses or cancer cells. Once the killer cells are isolated, researchers hope to connect the killer cells with human IL15. IL15 is a cytokine that might help activate the killer cells in human patients. 

This study is just one example of the many different projects that UC Davis facilitates to help advance cancer research. This past year, the Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center received $7.3 million in support. The Biomedical Technology Program at the Cancer Center alone has over 20 active projects and almost $24 million in funding.
