Scientists at UC San Francisco recently published the results of their Phase II Clinical Trial, which showed that an antihistamine restores nervous system function in patients with chronic multiple sclerosis (MS). In this landmark study, the antihistamine, clemastine fumarate, is the first medication that has been shown to reliably restore any brain function damaged by a neurological disease in human patients.Read More

In 2003 UCSF opened its first building on the Mission Bay Campus, Genetech Hall. Over the last fourteen years, as the campus expanded, it became a biotechnology hub and a place where the future clinical researchers, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dentists learn with the most modern tools available. In 2015 UCSF Medical at Mission Bay became San Francisco’s first new hospital in 30 year. This 289-bed complex is actually made up of three specialty hospitals under one roof: Benioff Children’s Hospital, Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital and Bakar Cancer Hospital. Soon the next phase of expansion at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus will begin with two new science buildings.Read More

Join Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. at the January Texas Medical Center BioResearch Product Faire Event and exhibit at the largest medical complex in the world.
With life science expenditures and NIH funding totaling more than 2.2 billion dollars , the BioResearch Product Faire™ offers an excellent opportunity to meet with well-funded researchers. This is further supported by consistent attendance at these trade shows well in excess of 400 researcher attendees, occasionally breaking 500 researchers in attendance.
Texas Medical Center has a new state of the art medical campus under construction which is estimated for completion in 2019 while the Zayed Building at MD Anderson just opend been opened in 2016. We invite you to join us early next year for Houston’s 18th Annual BioResearch Product Faire™.Read More
“Despite dramatic improvements in the ability to treat and prevent HIV, the HIV rate among youth in America has doubled in the last 10 years,” Mary Jane Rotheram-Borus, director of the Global Center for Children and Families at UCLA stated in a recent article for the UCLA Newsroom. By 2020 the incidence of the disease among youths is expected to increase by 39%. Dr. Rotheram-Boras believes that if acutely infected youths were identified and treated during the period when their infectivity to others is 5-10 fold, then the medical community could reverse this trend and improve the long-term health of youths.

The National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIAID) awarded University of California, Irvine $9.6 million to study the impact of environmental changes on malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. This research funding establishes UCI as one of the International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR).Read More
On April 20th UCLA celebrated the grand reopening of the Jules Stein Building after a $65M renovation. This building connects to the Doris Stein Building and the Edie & Lew Wasserman Building to make up the UCLA Stein Eye Institute. Combined, the three buildings provide nearly 300,000 square feet of functional space with over 20 specially equipped laboratories to support vision science investigations.Read More
We live in the information age. Many jobs now require the ability to learn large amounts of information and apply that to novel tasks. In the military this ability is critical. However, mastering a new task, skill or information often takes the right environment, mindset, and sharp focus. It also can require a lot of repetition and time. In some situations, that’s a luxury the military can’t afford. Therefore, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently approved $9.85 million in new research funding to develop a system that will help military personnel quickly master new skills and digest vast quantities of information.Read More

For the sixth year in a row, UC San Francisco was the top public recipient of biomedical research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Overall, UCSF researchers were awarded $577.6 million in NIH grants and contracts in 2016. This was a 3 percent increase over 2015, which is consistent with UCSF’s average annual increase over the past five years.

The University of Pennsylvania was established in 1740. It became the home to the nation’s first hospital and medical school, which were both founded by Benjamin Franklin. Now a new chapter in Penn Medicine’s history is about to begin. Construction of the New Patient Pavilion started in September of 2016. This new 13-story medical building will include 500 inpatient rooms as well as a relocated and expanded Emergency Department.
