Research News: University of Georgia Develops New Model for Stroke Studies

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 27, 2017

According to the CDC, Every 4 minutes, someone in the United States dies of stroke. That’s 140,000 Americans killed by stokes each year. Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability and costs the United States an estimated $34 billion each year.

To help find new treatment options for the nearly 800,000 people who have stokes each year, a team of scientists at The University of Georgia, Athens have developed a new livestock model  that could speed stroke discoveries by providing a better, more predictive transnational model. 

Mice are out and pigs are in:

Research News: U of Minnesota Grows Blood Vessels in Lab

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 13, 2017

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement that is composed completely of biological materials, yet contains no living cells at implantation. It is the first-of-its-kind nonsynthetic, decellularized graft that becomes repopulated with the recipient’s own cells after implanted. This discovery could help tens of thousands of kidney dialysis patients each year. It could also be adapted for use as coronary and peripheral bypass blood vessels and tubular heart valves in the future.

University of Georgia Receives $1.5 in Research Funding to Develop Brain Glue

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Nov 07, 2017

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 153 people in the U.S. die from injuries that include a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every day. Currently, there are no effective treatments for moderate-to-severe TBIs. So those who do survive their injuries often live the rest of their lives with impaired thinking, memory, or movement. TBIs can also lead to personality and emotional changes. However, research being conducted at the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) might lead to a treatment that could significantly improve the prognosis of those with brain injuries. This promising research into a glue-like substance for the brain recently won a $1.5 NIH grant award.

Research Funding for University of Georgia Includes Over $37M from NIH

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Aug 28, 2017

Total research and development expenditures for the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) reached an all-time high of $458 million. This is a 31% increase in R&D expenditures since the 2013 fiscal year. Over the past three years, externally funded research activities have climbed by 37% to reach $198 million in fiscal 2017. These expenditures are funded in part by federal grants and contracts. For example: in the first seven months of 2017 the University received 96 research project grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH). They total $37.2 million. The rest of their research funding comes from foundations, corporations, as well as the state of Georgia.

$100M Gift Makes New Medical Institute Possible at University of Chicago Medicine

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Aug 03, 2017

The University of Chicago is receiving $100 million from Craig Duchossois, his wife, and Janet Duchossois and The Duchossois Family Foundation. The funding will be used to establish a new life science institute that will focus on the development of a “new science of wellness.”  As the name indicates, The Duchossois Family Institute: Harnessing the Microbiome and Immunity for Human Health, will work to accelerate research and interventions based on how the human immune system, microbiome and genetics interact to maintain health.

$8.7M in Research Funding for Ohio State University Algae Research

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Feb 05, 2013

Algae research is a well-funded subject for science researchers, especially at Ohio State University. According to The Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State University has received $8.7 million in federal funding for algae-related projects. The U.S. Department of Energy gave $7 million to researchers interested in using waste water to grow algae biofuels, while the National Science Foundation gave $1.5 million for a project concerned with discovering the environmental impact of hazardous algae on Lake Erie. The project researchers are specifically interested in algae’s effects on climate change. Ohio State University researchers also received $150,000 from the Ohio Sea Grant Program to study the liver toxin concentrations on Lake Erie due to blue-green algae.
