The National Institute of Health (NIH) awarded Washington University in St. Louis over $1.4 million in grant funding to support their School of Medicine’s Diabetic Research Center. This award was administered through the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) as it has been for the last 38 years. The funding will help support the Diabetic Research Center (DRC) and their life science labs. The DRC's mission is to “support and enhance research in diabetes and related metabolic diseases” through Biomedical Research Core services as well as the Pilot and Feasibility Program.Read More

During pregnancy, much of a fetus’ development is contingent on the condition and function of the placenta. It is responsible for the transmission of substances from mother to child that are critical to early development, including blood, oxygen and nutrients, without which the fetus could not exist. Sometimes, however, environmental effects can cause deficiencies in the placenta, which can lead to harmful side effects such as preterm birth or even death.Read More

Many people might be unaware that genes can be turned on and off, just like a light switch. Researchers at Duke University know this, and they are among several institutions receiving NIH funding to discover the nature of the "light switch" that makes it all possible. Duke University, in collaboration with the Center for Genomic and Computational Biology is one of five centers sharing $28.3 million in grants from the National Human Genome Research Institute to study mechanisms for gene regulation. According to a university press release the Duke University team, led by Tim Reddy, will receive $5.9 million to characterize how human lung epithelial cells respond to anti-inflammatory drugs called glucocorticoids.Read More
