Two USC stem cell researchers have received a combined $4 million from the National Institute of Health (NIH). Dr. Qi-Long Ying will oversee a $1.32 million grant focusing on how two specific proteins influence whether stem cells self-renew to produce additional stem cells or become more specialized cell types. A $2.82 million grant awarded to Dr. Neil Segil will explore why humans are unable to recover from hearing loss, while birds and reptiles can.Read More

UC Davis has a long history of ground breaking stem cell research. Possible therapies studied range from advanced wound healing, treating HIV, and reduced vision loss to the regeneration of bone in otherwise non-healing fractures. Now The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) has awarded UC Davis Medical Center scientists nearly $8 million in research funding to launch a special clinical trials program in Sacramento. The goal of the grant is to accelerate the development and delivery of stem cell therapies in human patients.Read More

UC Davis Medical Center’s Mind Institute was one of five institutes in the nation to win the NIH’s Autism Centers of Excellence Award (ACE). The $12 million, five year grant, will be used for the creation of the “Center for the Development of Phenotype-based Treatments of Autism Spectrum Disorder.” This new center will take a personalize approach to addressing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) treatment based on a child’s behavioral and biological characteristics. The goal will be to identify and tailor treatments that improve the quality of life for those with ASD.Read More

We invite lab suppliers to meet with researchers at the University of California Irvine's $329M life science research marketplace.
The University of California, Irvine’s commitment to research ranks the school among the top 100 universities in the nation for life science R & D expenditures.
The campus’s commitment to research extends into areas such as:
- Health-related issues such as cancer and infectious diseases
- Neurodegeneration, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, learning and memory
- Stem cell therapies
- Environmental and evolutionary studies
Currently, there are no FDA approved medications for treating fragile X syndrome. That may soon change, thanks to a $11.5 million NIH grant awarded to UC Davis Medical Center. The new funding will allow researchers to test a new drug that is designed to improve language learning for children with fragile X syndrome. UC Davis is one of only two medical centers approved for the drug trail in the nation. Since UC Davis Medical Center is home to the renowned MIND Institute, which hosts the Fragile X Research and Treatment Center, it is a logical choice for the treatment study.Read More

The Human Computation Institute, in collaboration with UC Berkeley and other institutions, has developed a new game called Stall Catchers that will allow the public to directly contribute to research for a cure to Alzheimer's disease. In the online game, participants will view movies of real blood vessels in mouse brains and search for any clogged capillaries, or stalls. Capillary stalls, where blood is no longer flowing, are thought to be a key cause of Alzheimer's disease.
The Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of Southern California recently received a $21.7 million research grant from the National Institutes of Health to study epilepsy. Epilepsy is currently incurable, and the research team supported by the recent NIH grant will work toward finding a cure and developing treatments to prevent the condition.Read More
