UCSF Neurosciences: New Building Construction

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Wed, May 23, 2018

Construction is underway on a new $357 million neurosciences building on UC San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus. The 270,000-square-foot, six-story building will house the departments of Neurology, Psychiatry, and Neurological Surgery all under one roof. Currently, these departments are located on different campuses. The new science building is scheduled to open in 2020.

New Research Funding Supports UCSF Study of Drug for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Feb 15, 2018

In April of last year, Joan and Sanford I. Weill and the Weill Family Foundation donated $185 million to establish the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences. This was the largest single donation in UC San Francisco’s history. It raised the philanthropic commitments made to UCSF neuroscience programs last year to more than $500 million.

UCLA Pioneers New Approach to Coma Treatment

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Fri, Sep 30, 2016

In a first of its kind study, researchers at UCLA utilized ultrasound to “jump start” the brain of a man with severe brain injury who was recovering from a coma. According to the UCLA Newsroom, the 25 year old man could only perform small, limited movements when instructed and “showed minimal signs of consciousness” before the procedure. Three days after the treatment, he regained full consciousness and language comprehension. He could reliably communicate by shaking or nodding his head.  Five days after, the patient attempted to walk for the first time since the coma.

Cognitive neurologist, Rosie Cowell of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst received a nearly $600,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. The funding will be used to develop and test her theory of how fine-grained visual perception interacts with the area of the brain critical to memory.

Ohio State Researchers Link Stress to Memory Loss

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, May 25, 2016

 

A pioneering new study at Ohio State University found a link between chronic stress and short-term memory issues. In the study, mice were subjected to repeated visits from an aggressive, larger intruder mouse. Researchers found that the mice repeatedly exposed to the intruder had more difficulty recalling where the escape hole was in a maze they’d mastered prior to the stressful period, compared to mice that had not been stressed.

Clinical Trials to Begin for Fred Hutch Researcher’s “Tumor Paint”

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, Jun 10, 2015

Brain surgery is an extremely delicate matter, and complicated even further when performed on children with brain cancer. These cancer cells are difficult to discern from healthy cells during brain surgery and afterward may or may not still reside in the brain where they can continue to spread and cause damage.

6 University Research Teams Receive $7.5M for Neuroscience Studies

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, May 27, 2015

Six teams of researchers from leading univerisites are going to receive a set of three-year grants, totaling over $7.5 million, to create lab-grown brain cells in a process called neuronal maturation. 

The funding to the various universities was made possible by The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation as part of its Allen Distinguished Investigator grants, and will ensure the continued development of important neuroscience research.

UPenn Researchers Study Cellular Therapy for Brain Cancer

Posted by Robert Larkin on Fri, Mar 13, 2015

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research have discovered a potential new method for treating brain cancer using specially engineered immune cells.

According to a university press release, personalized immune cells were engineered by UPenn scientists in order to seek out and attack a type of deadly brain cancer, and were found to be both safe and effective at controlling tumor growth in mice that were treated with these modified cells.

UNR Receives $10M from NIH for Brain Research

Posted by Robert Larkin on Tue, Mar 03, 2015

Researchers at the University of Nevada, Reno are able to peer deeper into the mysteries of the brain thanks to a recent grant from the National Institutes of Health.

A $10 million grant was given to the Reno research institution by the NIH to help expand the University’s neuroscience research and capabilities using advanced functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).

In partnership with the Renown Regional Medical Center, UNR researchers will scan healthy and impaired brains in order to more fully understand its myriad functions.

Duke Researchers Awarded $15M to Study New Treatments for Brain Disorders

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Jan 20, 2015

Autism, a group of neurodegenerative genetic disorders that cause learning and behavioral challenges, affects approximately 2 million Americans. Other neurodegenerative diseases like stroke and cerebral palsy also affect a large amount of people in the United States. Stroke and cerebral palsy can cause serious brain damage, while autism causes many lifelong behavioral and learning challenges.
