New Research Funding Supports UCSF Study of Drug for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Feb 15, 2018

In April of last year, Joan and Sanford I. Weill and the Weill Family Foundation donated $185 million to establish the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences. This was the largest single donation in UC San Francisco’s history. It raised the philanthropic commitments made to UCSF neuroscience programs last year to more than $500 million.

Research News: UCLA Stem Cell Study Making a Sensation

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Jan 18, 2018

Most people think of paralysis in terms of not being able to move or walk. But there is another side to being paralyzed , the lack of sensation. The inability to feel pain leaves the person susceptible to burns from inadvertent contact with hot surfaces. Researchers at the Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have developed a new protocol which could serve as the first step toward stem cell-based therapies to restore sensation in paralyzed people who have lost feeling in parts of their body.

Washington University, St. Louis Researchers Receive $3.9M to Turn Bactria to Biofuel Producers

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Jan 17, 2018

Though experts may disagree on when earth’s supply of fossil fuels will be exhausted, they do agree that it will happen eventually. After all, fossil fuels typically require millions of years of degradation to create. So the race for alternative biofuels is on.

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently awarded the Washington University, St. Louis (WUSTL) $3.9 in research funding to develop bacteria that manufactures renewable biofuels. WUSTL scientists are studying Rhodococcus opacus, a bacteria that grows on toxic compounds, using them as a source of food for the production of biofuels. The goal of this research project is to produce biofuels that can completely replace petroleum-based fuels.

Two UCSD Life Science Researchers Awarded $3 Million Breakthrough Prize

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Jan 12, 2018

UC San Diego life science researchers Don Cleveland and Joanne Chory were awarded 2018 Breakthrough Prize awards in December. Each winner receives $3,000,000, which makes the Breakthrough Prize among science’s largest award. The Breakthrough Prize is intended to highlight scientists who are tackling the biggest questions and toughest challenges in order to improve lives.

Research News: U of Michigan Spent a Record $1.48 Billion on R & D

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Jan 11, 2018

According to the National Science Foundation, The University of Michigan (UM) has ranked number one in total research spending among public universities in the United States for the past seven years. Just as impressive, the $1.48 billion spent in 2016/2017 represents a 6.4% increase over the previous finical year. Much of the university's funding came from federal grants.

University of Illinois Research News: Synthetic Cannabiniod Reduces Sleep Apnea

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Jan 04, 2018

When obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was listed as a contributing factor in the death of actress Carrie Fisher, it brought the condition into the spotlight. Until the news, many people considered sleep apnea to be just a bothersome form of snoring. However, with OSA, breathing is actually interrupted for a few seconds or even several minutes. According to the American sleep apnea association, 38,000 people die annually from heart disease directly complicated by sleep apnea. Now researchers at the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC) believe they have found the first medication that reduces the effects of OSA, and it's  based on a molecule found in the cannabis plant.

Research News: Michigan State Saving the Bees from Pesticides 

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 18, 2017

Without pesticides farmers would become nearly impossible to feeding earth’s 7.6 billion inhabitants. One third of our global food supply is pollinated by bees. Researchers at Michigan State University’s entomology department may have found molecular tweaks that can allow Pyrethroid pesticides to kill pests without killing bees.

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:
