CU Anschutz, Sciences Institute awarded $46.5M Grant from NIH

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Fri, Jul 06, 2018

Colorado University Anschutz Medical Campus and its partner, Colorado Clinical and Transitional Sciences Institute (CCTSI), recently received a new five-year $46.5 million grant from the National Institute of Health (NIH).

“The general public may not know the CCTSI name,” Dr. Sokol, CCTSI director and professor of pediatrics in the School of Medicine, stated in an article for CU Anschutz Today. “But they have probably benefited from the research that has come out of our institute over the past 10 years.”

Since its inception, Institute staff have conducted research that has led to a cure for hepatitis C; developed treatments for cystic fibrosis; boosted the rates of health screenings in underserved Colorado communities; and developed community-based approaches to teaching CPR.

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.
