With trauma patients just a few minutes delay in treatment can make the difference between life and death. However South Chicago has been without a trauma center since 1991. This means trauma patients have to be transported nearly 10 miles away to receive the specialized services they need. The $270 million makeover happening at the University of Chicago's Hyde Park campus seeks to resolve that issue. The new $39 million adult emergency department that opened at U Chicago Medicine in December will become an integrated trauma care facility within the next few months.Read More

The state of Texas is striving to increase cancer research capabilities and opportunities with the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). One method that CPRIT uses to increase cancer research opportunities throughout the state is through the institutes core facility support awards, which provide more funding and opportunities for researchers from different Texas institutions. Recently, researchers from Texas A&M University received a $5.7 million grant from CPRIT to expand cancer research at the university through this additional core facility funding.

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.Read More
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 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)Read More
Researchers within the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter (LRSM) at the University of Pennsylvania have been conducting breakthroughs in the field of materials science since it opened in 1961. A leading center within the LRSM that helps with this breakthrough research, the NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), was recently awarded a $22.6 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that will support materials research at UPenn over the next six years.
