Duke Receives $5.9 Million for Genomics Bioresearch

Posted by Robert Larkin on Tue, Jan 27, 2015

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.

$7.6M in New Life Science Funding at Mount Sinai

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Nov 04, 2013

“Cardiac surgery has been a spectacularly innovative field of medicine,” says the abstract of a Mount Sinai School of Medicine grant proposal on the NIH RePORTER. “The introduction of major innovations and ongoing incremental change have extended survival and improved quality of life for many patients suffering from cardiac disease. A rapid pace of innovation requires a rigorous infrastructure for clinical evaluation that provides timely assessments of the value of new treatments.”

$8.5M in Life Science Funding Awarded to UNC Chapel Hill

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Nov 01, 2013

“Despite the clinical success of antiretroviral therapy (ART), more people contract human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection daily than initiate ART,” states the NIH RePORTER abstract for a new study receiving funding from the NIH. “The difficulties of lifelong ART - particularly in the developing world - make the eradication of HIV imperative. But clearance of a retroviral infection for patients on ART is a herculean task. While much is known about HIV persistence despite ART, many puzzles remain. New tools to address latent infection must replace the paradigms and models used to develop ART.”
