Life Science Funding News on our Company Blog

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Sep 25, 2013

In an article on our Science Market Update blog last week, we featured some life science funding news stories that we covered in our Life Science Company and Industry News Briefs blog the week before. We’d like to do the same this week because a number of last week’s funding news stories may be of interest to lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment at these well-funded research institutions. In the following paragraphs, we’ll give a brief summary of what schools received funding, how much funding they received, and what the topic of research is. We’ll also include links for further reading.

Harvard Researchers Identify SALL4 Cancer Gene Inhibitor

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jul 15, 2013

Science researchers at Harvard University have discovered a gene found in the most devastating forms of cancer that controls embryonic stem cell self-renewal. The gene, SALL4, enables stem cells to keep dividing rather than grow into mature cells. The gene is re-expressed in almost all cases of acute myeloid leukemia and between 10 to 30 percent of lung, ovarian, gastric, liver, breast and endometrial cancer. Researchers say they can make a strong case that the gene plays a part in tumor formation. The breakthrough marks the beginning of a search for a drug that can block the gene’s activity.

Biotech Sales Leads Abound in Boston

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, May 13, 2013

It is implicit that marketing life science solutions at a high quality life science marketing vendor show in Boston will result in excellent biotech sales leads, especially when one takes into account The Boston Globe’s recent report on the biotech industry boom in Boston. At least nine life science companies in Massachusetts could go public this year, making the boom one of the biggest since 2007.

Life science funding creates opportunites and growth in Massachusetts

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, May 08, 2013

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center recently announced that it will be giving $9 million in grants to Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital to update research labs. Harvard Medical School will be receiving $5 million of the money and plans to use the research funding to create a Laboratory of Systems Pharmacology, which will be multidisciplinary in nature and will help to supply better information on clinical trials while drugs are in the process of development. Boston Children's Hospital will use the $4 million it receives from the state to establish the Children’s Center for Cell Therapy, which will include renovating labs to create specialized stem cell culturing facilities.

Harvard University Receives $50M Gift

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Apr 29, 2013

A gift to Harvard University for $50 million is slated to be announced Monday. The money will be donated by former Harvard student and businessman Len Blavatnik to help fuel a major enterprise intending to bridge the break between basic biomedical research and the creation of new patient therapies. The gift will also kick-start the creation of a fellowship at Harvard Business School to help life science entrepreneurs by expanding their exposure to life science technologies and research.

Audacious Vision Research Challenge Winners are the Usual Brilliant Suspects

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Feb 15, 2013

The National Eye Institute, an NIH agency dedicated to vision research, recently announced the winners of their Challenge to Identify Audacious Goals in Vision Research and Blindness Rehabilitation, or the Audacious Goals Challenge for short. The competition was open to professionals and members of the public and called upon them to think big and bold about vision research goals for the next decades. The prize money was nominal ($3,000) but included an invitation and travel money to attend and present their ideas at the NEI Audacious Goals Development Meeting in Maryland later this month. The real prize, of course, was the opportunity to help set research and funding goals for the next 10-12 years. Of the 500 or so proposals submitted, 10 visionaries were selected as winners.

Major UCB Life Science Advance with RNA-Programmed Genome Editing

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Jan 11, 2013

2012 was a big year for the science of snipping DNA to introduce genetic changes into a cell, also known as genome editing. Though Science magazine hailed two new techniques for selectively cutting and pasting DNA in the field of genome engineering as together constituting one of the Top 10 scientific breakthroughs of the year, those methods may already have been surpassed by researchers at the University of California Berkeley using RNA and a single protein. Faster, simpler, and cheaper, the UCB team led by Dr. Jennifer Doudna published initial results of their work genetically modifying bacteria using the RNA-based DNA cleavage technique last summer. The response from the the life science community was extremely positive, with reviews calling it a "tour de force" and a "a real hit," according to the latest press release. Now three more papers are coming out based on the work of the Doudna Lab showing that the RNA programming technique using a bacterial enzyme known as Cas9 is equally effective in making alterations to human genes.
