University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine Researchers Given $4 million NIH grant

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Fri, Sep 21, 2018

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.

UC Davis Receives $11.5M in Funding for Fragile X Research

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Jan 03, 2017

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.

Online Game from UCB Lets Public Help Advance Alzheimer’s Research

Posted by Emily Olson on Fri, Oct 28, 2016

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.
