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)

$11.5M Granted to Houston Scientists for Lymphoma Treatment Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 04, 2017

Lymphoma is one of the most common types of cancer, with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma making up about 4% of all cancer cases in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Although treatment methods like chemotherapy and radiation therapy are able to treat the cancer, researchers still actively study this cancer to gain a better understanding of it to develop new targeted treatment methods. 

Researchers from the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children's Hospital and Houston Methodist Hospital have been studying new therapies for the cancer using T-cells, research that they will continue with the assistance of a new $11.5 million grant from the National Cancer Institute.

USC Researchers Use Proteins to Boost Immune System in Fighting HIV

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Oct 02, 2017

According to the World Health Organization, more than 36.7 million people around the world are infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Although there is not yet a cure for HIV, some treatments are able to slow the spread of the virus. Researchers around the world study the virus with the hope of one day creating a cure to attack the virus. A team of researchers from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles are taking a different approach to fighting HIV - by creating a treatment that boosts the immune system instead of attacking the virus.
