New Cancer Treatment Breakthrough at U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Dec 04, 2017

The National Cancer Institute awards the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign roughly $5 million in research funding each year. This funding supports a number of cancer research projects conducted at the university. One such project is a ground breaking study of nanoparticles that researchers designed to specifically bind to a protein that marks the surface of breast cancer stem cells and destroy them. These elusive and rare cells can cause cancer to come back years after the tumor has been treated.

Rockefeller U: NIH Research Funding May Lead to “Universal” Flu Vaccine

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Nov 01, 2017

Most people don’t think of the flu as being life threatening. However, 36,000 American’s die because of the flu virus each year. Now, with the help of millions in NIH research funding, scientists at Rockefeller University have devised a strategy for improving existing flu vaccines. The new vaccines will better protect people against these ever-mutating viruses. And this new strategy might eliminate the need for annual flu shots, while at the same time saving thousands of lives.

Rockefeller Scientist Receives $1.1M in Research Funding to Improve Biotech Services

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Apr 10, 2017

Dr. Robert Darnell, Professor of Cancer Biology and Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Neuro-Oncology at Rockefeller University, received a $1.1 million grant from the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

This research funding will support his lab’s new approach to studying diseases of the brain through modern biotech services and more efficient informatics. He and his lab will work on harnessing the power of molecular biology to define therapeutic targets for several different types of brain diseases. Researchers will do this by combining the latest technological advances modern science has brought to neuroscience with new computational approaches.
