Arizona's BIO5 Institute: Over $1.3M in Grants for Ovarian Cancer Research

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Oct 16, 2018

Ovarian cancer has a mortality rate of up to 70%. This is partly due to the fact that the disease is rarely detected in its early stages because the symptoms are vague and nonspecific. Currently, there is no accepted screening method for ovarian cancer. Due to the mortality rate, physicians often counsel women at high risk to have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a precaution. Jennifer Barton, director of University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute wants to change all this. With $863,000 from the United States Army and nearly $500,000 from the NIH in research funding, her plans for a falloposcope that will detect early-stage ovarian cancer is moving forward.

WU Research: $34M to Build Better Maps of the Brain

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Fri, Dec 09, 2016

Despite recent advances in neuroimaging, the medical community still lacks a comprehensive map of the brain and how it changes with age. Such maps would make it possible for doctors to distinguish between what is normal aging and what is atypical, which would make it possible to link atypical changes to neurological diseases and various mental health issues. Thanks to a $34 million NIH grant, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis will lead a project to make such maps of the brain a reality.
