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.

Does your Lab Equipment and Product Territory Include Texas?

The Texas Medical Center has recently fostered a $25 million initiative designed to support technologies and early-stage companies and to further the TMC’s mission to advance health, education and research. 

"The Texas Medical Center unveiled plans for the TMC Venture Fund to an audience of more than 600 investors, hospital stakeholders, advisors and members of Houston’s innovation ecosystem" see press release.  For those wondering just how big this is compared to the overall Texas Medical Center research marketplace, current estimates for the size of this market range from $1.8 Billion to  $2.2 Billion.

 

R esearchers from Texas Medical Center are constantly looking for improvements in lab equipment; consumable lab supplies, and high quality research services and they find them at the Annual BioResearch Product Faire™ at Houston's Texas Medical Center.
 
"I talked with several companies with equipment that we can write in to a grant, hopefully purchase in the future."
 
"I came because I am interested in the products and possible promotions from companies. I found specials on items that I plan to order in the immediate future."

Texas A&M Gains Research Funding to Study Post-Traumatic Epilepsy

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Oct 26, 2016

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is the leading cause of disability among U.S. military personnel and veterans. What’s more, 50% of people with TBI develop spontaneous seizures. If the seizures become recurrent then the condition qualifies as Post-Traumatic Epilepsy, PTE. Now thanks to a 3 year, $750,000 research grant from the Department of Defense and the Army, researchers at Texas A&M will conduct a study on TBI to uncover the molecular and epigenetic mechanism of PTE.

UT Austin Science Researchers Compare Physical and Emotional Pain

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Sep 09, 2014

If you have ever had a severe headache, you may have noticed how pain takes a toll on your emotional state, especially if you have ever experienced a migraine. Taking pain medication can help with how a headache feels physically, but what effects does pain relief have on people emotionally? Believe it or not, a number of studies have been conducted on how pain medication like ibuprofen can ameliorate emotional pain. Research has proven that ibuprofen can indeed relieve emotional stress, but scientists at the University of Texas, Austin have recently discovered that it is much more effective on women than on men. Men who take the drug say that they experience harsher feelings of rejection, while women report feeling better.
