6 University Research Teams Receive $7.5M for Neuroscience Studies

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, May 27, 2015

Six teams of researchers from leading univerisites are going to receive a set of three-year grants, totaling over $7.5 million, to create lab-grown brain cells in a process called neuronal maturation. 

The funding to the various universities was made possible by The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation as part of its Allen Distinguished Investigator grants, and will ensure the continued development of important neuroscience research.

U.Cincinnati Receives $14 Million in Funding for Neuroscience Institute

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Apr 24, 2015

Over the past 15 years, the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cincinnati has grown immensely. Starting out with only a few researchers and physicians, the center has continuously grown in amount of faculty members, and funding received. Since its founding, more than $60 million has been donated to the institute, helping it become the leading neuroscience research and care center in the Cincinnati area.

Georgetown Researchers Receive $1.2M for Neurodegenerative Disorder Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Fri, Jan 23, 2015

There are many well-known neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's that are caused by the loss of neurons which can lead to memory loss or the loss of nerve function. Neurodegenerative diseases can also occur from other diseases, such as HIV which can induce dementia. Researchers at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. have been studying different molecular mechanisms that contribute to Alzheimer's disease and HIV-induced dementia.

Hutch Cancer Research Center and UW Recruit Top Neuroscientist to Seattle

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Apr 12, 2013


The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
and the University of Washington Medicine in Seattle are pleased to announce the arrival soon of Dr. Eric Holland, a world-class brain cancer research scientist and neurosurgeon, who will head up the Human Biology Division at Hutch as well as the Alvord Brain Tumor Center at UW. The eminent MD/PhD is being lured away from Manhattan's Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he directs the MSKCC brain tumor center and has his lab within the Cancer Biology and Genetics Program, where his team studies the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of central nervous system tumors. In addition to being the recipient of many prestigious awards over years, Holland brings with him over $3M a year in NIH/NCI funding. It's unclear how many of his 13 lab members will follow him across the country to take on new challenges at Hutch and UW.

CUMC Scientist Wins $100K Neuroscience Prize for Nervous System Research

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Mar 13, 2013

Dr. Thomas Jessell is a developmental neurobiologist at Columbia University Medical Center and the latest recipient of the Scolnick Prize in Neuroscience, which includes a $100,000 award. In the Jessell Lab in the Hammer Health Sciences Building, researchers study the vertebrate central nervous system to understand how neurons become encoded at the embryonic level, particularly in the spinal cord. The Scolnick Prize singles out Jessell's work for identifying signaling molecules and transcriptional code that establish a linkage between functional circuitry and motor behavior. Also a member of Columbia's Motor Neuron Center, which is dedicated to the study of motor neuron diseases like ALS, Dr. Jessell is a faculty member in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, and part of the larger Columbia Neuroscience interdisciplinary research community. He will travel to Boston in April to accept the prize and deliver a lecture (see image at right). The Scolnick Prize is given out by the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT. According to McGovern chairman Robert Desimone, from a recent CUMC press release:

Federal Neuroscience Project Could See Billions in New Research Funding

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Feb 20, 2013

The Brain Activity Map project could be the next big federal life science research endeavor, with no less a goal than the mapping of the entire living brain and all its neuronal activity. Like the Human Genome Project of the 90's, the not insignificant financial outlay is being presented as an investment that will net even bigger returns, both in terms of new technology and a vastly increased understanding of the mind. President Obama is expected to include the multi-billion dollar, decade-long funding in his upcoming budget proposal, and neuroscience research was a topic he addressed specifically in his recent State of the Union address.

Columbia Brain Research Institute Advances With $200M Zuckerman Gift

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Mon, Jan 07, 2013

Neurobiology research has a long and storied history at Columbia University and its Medical School in New York, dating back to the groundbreaking work of American neurologist Harry Grundfest 60 years ago. 30 years ago Columbia became one of the first universities to bring together diverse, cross-disciplinary researchers in neighboring labs to study behavior at the cellular, molecular, and systems level. By 2004, when Columbia celebrated its 250th anniversary, university president Lee Bollinger (right) announced the formation of a Mind Brain Behavior Initiative to more productively bring scientists into an even more integrated research effort across not only the two existing New York City campuses, but with an anchor (and crossroads) at the new CU Manhattanville campus then in the active planning stages.
