Duke: Access Over $1 Billion in R & D At This Event

Posted by Andrea Inks on Tue, Mar 26, 2019

Duke University is known as one of the largest research institutions in the nation. With over 1 billion in Total R & D expenditures it ranked 8th. Further, Duke spent over $950 million on life science research.

Funding Facts:

−          Total R & D Expenditures: $1,126,924,000

−          Rank in Total R & D Expenditures: 8th

−          2017 Life Science R & D Expenditures: $950,245,000

−          2018 NIH Funding: $475,338,515

 

Interestingly, Duke received a $28 Million grant from the NIH to discover immunologic research directed at tackling major scientific problems that hinder the development of an effective HIV-1 vaccine. The vaccine strategy will be based on identifying and targeting novel HIV-1 vulnerabilities to B, T and NK cell immune responses and then using this information to design vaccines that will induce protective immunity at the time and location of HIV-1 transmission.

Cancer Fighting Antibody Created by Duke Researchers

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Jun 10, 2016

Antibodies are essential for keeping the body healthy, as they are produced in the immune system and sent to fight harmful substances. Since they are essential for fighting off unwanted antigens in the body, antibodies are a hot topic that researchers are constantly studying. Recently, a research team from Duke University developed an antibody that specifically targets cancer cells, providing a possible new immunotherapy for cancer. (Image of antibody-antigen complex courtesy of Alejandro Porto via Wikimedia Commons)

Duke University Illuminates the Beauty of Yeast

Posted by David Larsen on Fri, Mar 20, 2015


By combining time-lapse luminescence microscopy with a microfluidic device, researchers at Duke University were able to track the dynamics of cell cycle genes in single yeast with subminute exposure times over many generations. Typically time-lapse fluorescence microscopy of genetically encoded fluorescent proteins is the gold standard for measuring in vivo dynamics of gene expression in single cells.

Duke Receives $5.9 Million for Genomics Bioresearch

Posted by Robert Larkin on Tue, Jan 27, 2015

Many people might be unaware that genes can be turned on and off, just like a light switch. Researchers at Duke University know this, and they are among several institutions receiving NIH funding to discover the nature of the "light switch" that makes it all possible. Duke University, in collaboration with the Center for Genomic and Computational Biology is one of five centers sharing $28.3 million in grants from the National Human Genome Research Institute to study mechanisms for gene regulation. According to a university press release the Duke University team, led by Tim Reddy, will receive $5.9 million to characterize how human lung epithelial cells respond to anti-inflammatory drugs called glucocorticoids.

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.

Duke Researchers Use Tarantula Venom to Stop Cartilage Cell Death

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Dec 30, 2014

Anyone with arachnophobia will tell you how terrifying spiders are, especially some of the larger ones like tarantulas. One of the biggest fears people report is getting bitten by a poisonous spider. Even though tarantula venom is very weak and not deadly to humans, the thought of getting bitten can cause some people to tremble with fear.
