Life Science Funding News on our Company Blog

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Sep 25, 2013

In an article on our Science Market Update blog last week, we featured some life science funding news stories that we covered in our Life Science Company and Industry News Briefs blog the week before. We’d like to do the same this week because a number of last week’s funding news stories may be of interest to lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment at these well-funded research institutions. In the following paragraphs, we’ll give a brief summary of what schools received funding, how much funding they received, and what the topic of research is. We’ll also include links for further reading.

Life Science Research at U. Pitt Regenerates Mouse Heart

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Sep 17, 2013

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have made a groundbreaking contribution to life science research: Researchers helped a mouse heart to beat again after its own cells were replaced with human heart precursor cells, marking the first time this has ever been done. According to a University of Pittsburgh news article, the researchers say it may soon be possible to take a skin biopsy from a human patient to regenerate an organ able to be transplanted.
