UC Davis Researchers Receive $1.5M to Study Immune Cells for Tumor Treatment

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Nov 06, 2017

White blood cells help the immune system protect the body from infections and diseases. Along with attacking infections, white blood cells also have the ability to bring other cells together to help in the fight. With these known abilities of white blood cells, life science researchers have been researching ways to amplify the abilities of these cells to target specific illnesses, such as tumors.

UMass Researcher Granted $2.3M to Study Tuberculosis

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Nov 03, 2017

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease that affects nearly 1/3 of the world's population. Although eradication efforts have been undertaken, none have been successful and TB is still a leading cause around the world. Even though there are treatment methods for this infection, they are not always successful at killing the bacteria that cause TB. This provides life science researchers with more questions and research topics, to better understand the infection and bacteria and what causes treatments to work occasionally, but not always

Mt. Sinai Receives $2.2M for TBI Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Oct 31, 2017

The brain is a fragile organ that can be damaged by different impacts to the head, including sports injuries or car crashes. Thousands of people arediagnosed with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) each year,stemming from different head impacts. The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) awards 16 US institutions a TBI Model System grant each year to provide researchers and clinicians more opportunities to study these injuries.

UPitt Establishing Comprehensive Ovarian Biology Research Institute with Assistance from $3M Grant

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 25, 2017

Researchers from science institutions around the world study different forms of cancer, to gain better understandings of the diseases to assist with the development of new treatment methods. One of these cancers that is continuously being studied is ovarian cancer, which effects 1 in 75 women, according to the American Cancer Society. The University of Pittsburgh plans to further enhance ovarian cancer research opportunities with the establishment of a new research center dedicated to ovarian cancer and biology research.

Washington University Receives $46M to Support Translational Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Oct 24, 2017

Washington University in St. Louis has 1 of 57 Institutes of Clinical and Translation Sciences (ICTS) in the United States. The ICTS at Washington University focuses on translating discoveries from both translation and clinical research into new treatments and therapies. The ICTS does not focus on just one area of life science research. Instead, researchers from all spectrums on the health sciences are able to use the institutes resources to further their work on topics like disease prevention and treatment. Training programs are also offered through the institute for researchers. (Image courtesy of P. David via Wikimedia Commons)
