HIV and AIDS have been a conspicuous concern worldwide for several decades now; research into its treatment regularly gains national attention and benefits from billions of dollars in research funding. What many people may not realize, however, is that simian immunodeficiency virus, (or SIV, a nonhuman primate form of HIV that causes AIDS in monkeys) may hold the keys to unlocking the mysteries of how HIV can be treated in humans.Read More
California is home to some serious unicellular research, and the National Institute of Health is taking notice. Bioresearch programs at California institutions accounted for a significant portion of the $7.9 million in grants which the NIH awarded to researchers studying single cells. The request for 2014 applications came from the NIH last December to fund programs related to many areas of cellular biology, including personalized treatment for diseases at a cellular level. The grants are supported by the NIH Common Fund’s Single Cell Analysis Program (SCAP) and represents a major boost for many of the 25 research teams that were chosen to receive funding.Read More
This prestigious designation makes the MIND Institute one of only fifteen Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Centers in the country. Transition into this program is made possible by a five-year $6.5 million NIH grant and gives the institute critical new resources that will accelerate its progress in neurodevelopment research.

Though researchers have known for some time that eating a Mediterranean diet is good for the heart and can even help fight cancer, nobody has known exactly how it affects our bodies so positively. Now at Ohio State University, a new study shows how one compound in particular assists in the natural death of cancer cells.

Researchers from Ohio State University have pinpointed a tiny piece of RNA that plays a large role in embryonic tissue formation. Understanding such small, often overlooked pieces can help illuminate the biological processes of the earliest stages of life.
Biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers in Cincinnati will find a well-funded and vibrant research marketplace at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, as recent NIH and NSF research funding statistics show. In 2012, the NIH awarded the university $73.9 million in research funding. The funding was distributed among a number of different projects in various science disciplines. Of the different departments awarded research funding at the University of Cincinnati, the money was given out as listed below:
