Texas Researchers Receive $5.7M to Further Cancer Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Dec 14, 2017

 The state of Texas is striving to increase cancer research capabilities and opportunities with the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT). One method that CPRIT uses to increase cancer research opportunities throughout the state is through the institutes core facility support awards, which provide more funding and opportunities for researchers from different Texas institutions. Recently, researchers from Texas A&M University received a $5.7 million grant from CPRIT to expand cancer research at the university through this additional core facility funding.

Texas A&M: $10M in Research Funding to Study Effects of Harvey

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Oct 13, 2017

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a group of researchers will study the effects of the pollution stirred up by the flooding. Scientists from Texas A&M, College Station will conduct four environmental research projects thanks to a five year, $10 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program. All four projects will stem from a case study of Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that examines the chemicals found within the sediment. These studies are designed to improve our understanding of the complexities of hazardous chemicals exposure and its negative impacts on health.

Two New Mass Spectrometers Make Texas A&M a Top Facility for Studying Isotopes

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Jan 19, 2017

The chancellor’s office of Texas A&M University (TAMU) recently funded a $5 million initiative to support mass spectrometry research. As part of this initiative a $1 million grant from the Texas A&M University Research Development Fund will be used to develop a shared mass spectrometry core facility and buy two new mass spectrometers for the College Station campus. One will be a gas chromatography combustion/pyrolysis isotope ratio mass spectrometer and the other will be a high resolution isotope ratio mass spectrometer for clumped isotopes.

New Vaccine Manufacturing Facility Under Construction at Texas A&M University

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Nov 26, 2014

When a pandemic appears in the world, people start to worry about whether or not they will be affected by the disease. Questions arise like: What are the chances of it spreading? Are there vaccines? Pandemics like the H5N1 avian flu in 2004, the H1N1 flu virus in 2009, and most recently the Ebola epidemic in West Africa have brought about these types of questions. Most often, when an epidemic breaks out, there is not a common vaccine or cure right away. Texas A&M University is in the process of designing a new Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Manufacturing Facility expected to be operational in 2017.

TAMU Receives $1.9 Million Grant for Tuberculosis Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Oct 27, 2014

Tuberculosis (TB) affects people all over the world, although over 95 percent of the cases are in developing countries. TB is caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that affects the lungs, which can stay in the body for many months before any symptoms are seen, leading to the transmission of the disease between people. Unlike many other universal diseases, though, tuberculosis is curable if caught in time and preventable. Even with known cures for TB, scientists are still studying the structure of the Mtb protein to find ways of using it to design future drugs.
