UWisc: $9.8M in DARPA Research Funding to Develop Device to Accelerate Learning

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, May 17, 2017

We live in the information age. Many jobs now require the ability to learn large amounts of information and apply that to novel tasks. In the military this ability is critical. However, mastering a new task, skill or information often takes the right environment, mindset, and sharp focus. It also can require a lot of repetition and time. In some situations, that’s a luxury the military can’t afford. Therefore, the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recently approved $9.85 million in new research funding to develop a system that will help military personnel quickly master new skills and digest vast quantities of information.

Federal and Foundation Funding Helps Duke Scientists Find Way to Prevent Strokes

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Apr 25, 2017

Each year, Duke's Department of Medicine receives more than $130 million in federal research grants to fund basic, clinical, and transnational research. For the fiscal year 2015-2016 Duke University also received over $180 in private donations from individuals and various foundations to support their lifesaving research. An example of their success is a recent study conducted by Duke University researchers that may save patients with atrial fibrillation (A-fib) from suffering from strokes.

Rockefeller Scientist Receives $1.1M in Research Funding to Improve Biotech Services

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Apr 10, 2017

Dr. Robert Darnell, Professor of Cancer Biology and Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Neuro-Oncology at Rockefeller University, received a $1.1 million grant from the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

This research funding will support his lab’s new approach to studying diseases of the brain through modern biotech services and more efficient informatics. He and his lab will work on harnessing the power of molecular biology to define therapeutic targets for several different types of brain diseases. Researchers will do this by combining the latest technological advances modern science has brought to neuroscience with new computational approaches.

Rockefeller Receives $25M to Turn Discoveries into Therapies

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Feb 06, 2017

Rockefeller University received a $25 million gift from the Robertson Foundation that will be used to create the Robertson Therapeutic Development Fund. This fund will be used to help turn basic research discoveries into new medical therapies by providing support for dozens of Rockefeller projects over the next five years. Research grants ranging from $10,000 to $1 million will be awarded from the fund in order to provide Rockefeller scientists with the resources they need to take exceptionally promising research initiatives through the steps that lead to breakthrough medications, new diagnostic tests or other clinical innovations.

Washington University, St. Louis Leading Drug Trial for Alzheimer's Prevention

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Jan 24, 2017

Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is leading an international team studying potential treatments to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The team recently added a third medicationin this worldwide clinical trial that is already underway. According to the WU School of Medicine news site, the latest investigational drug “is designed to lower production of amyloid beta, a protein that clumps together into plaques damaging neurons in the brain, leading to memory loss, cognitive problems and confusion.”

$2.5M to USF to Study Licensing of Parasites

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Jan 17, 2017

Malaria and toxoplasmosis are caused by different, yet closely related, apicomplexa parasites.  Efforts to eliminate these diseases have met with only partial success. Now the National Institute of Health (NIH) has awarded the University of South Florida (USF) a $2.5 million, five year grant to study a new approach to fighting these diseases by stopping their ability to replicate.

UC Davis Receives $11.5M in Funding for Fragile X Research

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Jan 03, 2017

Currently, there are no FDA approved medications for treating fragile X syndrome. That may soon change, thanks to a $11.5 million NIH grant awarded to UC Davis Medical Center. The new funding will allow researchers to test a new drug that is designed to improve language learning for children with fragile X syndrome. UC Davis is one of only two medical centers approved for the drug trail in the nation. Since UC Davis Medical Center is home to the renowned MIND Institute, which hosts the Fragile X Research and Treatment Center, it is a logical choice for the treatment study.

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.
