Life Science Report Ranks Boston #1 Hub Among Biotech Regions

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Jan 06, 2012


In yesterday's blog we referenced the findings of a study of established and emerging life science clusters in the United States.  That Life Sciences Cluster Report, produced by Jones Lange LaSalle (JLL, a financial and professional services firm specializing in real estate services and investment management) was the basis of an analysis by GEN Magazine's editor that we cited.  Today we're looking at the JLL report directly, which ranks the top 16 US life science regions and pinpoints the top markets for real estate expansion in such industries as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, medical device technology, agricultural biotechnology and biofuels.

Duke Research Funding Strong + Biotech Hub Success in Recent Studies

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Thu, Jan 05, 2012

In two recent articles published on business websites, Duke University emerges as being especially strong in both industry research funding (as it matches public funding) and its position within a growing biotech hub (the Research Triangle formed by Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina).  What these studies indicate is that Duke is succeeding as a research university in ways that its rivals may not be able to match and that bode well for its growth in the future.  Both articles suggest that one of Duke's strengths is its relationship to industry in the region, for developing its technology as well as bringing in new funding for its research.

UCSF Research Lab Licenses Microscopy Technology to Zeiss

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Nov 04, 2011

Germany has a long and illustrious history in photo-optics and many of its young scientists come to the U.S., and specifically to the University of California, San Francisco, to do their doctoral and post-doc work involving microscopy.  Such was the case of Dr. Jan Huisken, who developed mSPIM technology while working in the UCSF biochemistry lab of Dr. Didier Stainier as a post-doc from 2005-2009.

Plant Research Questions and Science Business Opportunities

Posted by BCI Staff on Mon, Sep 12, 2011

Pulling material from technical science publications that is directly applicable to the business of science marketplace is sometimes a challenge, however, here is a thought provoking publication by Greirson et al. that addresses something most of us rarely think about.

"Plants are fundamental to all life on Earth. They provide us with food, fuel, fiber, industrial feed stocks, and medicines. They render our atmosphere breathable. They buffer us against extremes of weather and provide food and shelter for much of the life on our planet. However, we take plants and the benefits they confer for granted."

Of the one hundred or so plant research questions posted, the critical 10 appear to revolve around human societies need for survival.

Universities Research ROI of Geo-Social Networking Tools on Campus

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Aug 26, 2011


Once upon a time
realizing university officials really wanted to know where students were congregating and what they were doing together had an ominous ring, but that's all changed in the super-connected, GPS-tracked world of today's social media.  Internet connectivity no longer means checking in from the vague no-man's-land of cyberspace: with the smartphones almost everyone now has (at least the Gen Y set), you are constantly locatable in real space through the geo-locator technology built into your phone.  This geo-social component of social networking offers new possibilities for interacting with places as well as people, and leaving a market-opportunity-rich breadcrumb trail while you're at it.

Neuroscience and Law Dual Degree Program at UW-Madison Visionary

Posted by BCI Staff on Mon, Jun 20, 2011

The University of Wisconsin at Madison continues its fearless pursuit not only of knowledge, in the form of cutting-edge science research, but modern paradigms within which to conduct tomorrow's research and train tomorrow's scientists and thinkers.  Two weeks ago we reported on UW-Madison's reorganization of several of its basic science departments to keep up with new directions in research (read blog).  Now the Badgers are productively rearranging the field again with the announcement of a dual-degree Program in Neuroscience and Law, offering students the opportunity to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience and a J.D. in law at the same time.

Univ Professor at UCSD Scripps Honored for Oceanography Research

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Jun 10, 2011

In 1972 when Miriam Kastner was invited to join the faculty of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, she was the first female university professor at the then 69-year-old institute.  Opportunities for women in the sciences were few, and she was more than pleased with the "extraordinary possibilities to engage in new research with state-of-the-art facilities and great seagoing opportunities" as a Scripps researcher and UCSD university professor.
