Anti-fungal research at New York's Stony Brook University earned $6 million in grants from the National Institute of Health.  Dr. Maurizio del Poeta’s breakthrough in attacking deadly fungus came from a recent research project that yielded an unexpected result that might lead to a vaccine.  He and his team were searching for a gene that would metabolize a fungal sphingolipid.  Instead, the gene he mutated caused mice that were exposed to it to become resistant to fungal infections.  In an article on the Stony Brook University’s news site, Dr. Poeta said , “We think that this discovery will open the road to a new vaccination strategy against fungi.”

$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.”
