Research News: UCLA Stem Cell Study Making a Sensation

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Jan 18, 2018

Most people think of paralysis in terms of not being able to move or walk. But there is another side to being paralyzed , the lack of sensation. The inability to feel pain leaves the person susceptible to burns from inadvertent contact with hot surfaces. Researchers at the Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have developed a new protocol which could serve as the first step toward stem cell-based therapies to restore sensation in paralyzed people who have lost feeling in parts of their body.

UCLA Leading $20M Project to Decrease Growing HIV Infection Rate Among Youths

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Aug 10, 2017

“Despite dramatic improvements in the ability to treat and prevent HIV, the HIV rate among youth in America has doubled in the last 10 years,” Mary Jane Rotheram-Borus, director of the Global Center for Children and Families at UCLA stated in a recent article for the UCLA Newsroom. By 2020 the incidence of the disease among youths is expected to increase by 39%. Dr. Rotheram-Boras believes that if acutely infected youths were identified and treated during the period when their infectivity to others is 5-10 fold, then the medical community could reverse this trend and improve the long-term health of youths.

Funding News: $50M Gift from Mattel to Benefit UCLA Hospital

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Apr 26, 2017

In 1998 Mattel’s gift of $25 million made the construction of the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital possible. In March 2017 Mattel made a $50M commitment to the UCLA Foundation to expand the hospital’s pediatric services.  Over the last 20 years, Mattel has provided more than $80 million to UCLA’s health care system to support its Children’s Hospital.

$7.2M in Life Science Funding for Genetic Disease Study Awarded to UCLA

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jul 28, 2014

The National Institutes of Health has awarded the University of California, Los Angeles a $7.2 million life science grant to study genetic diseases and develop ways to diagnose rare genetic disorders. UCLA is the only university on the West Coast and one of only three in the United States with a laboratory that can carry out genomic sequence directly usable for patient care, making it the ideal university to receive this life science grant.

$5.3M in New NIH Funding for UCLA and UCD Autism Research Centers

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Apr 05, 2013

The NIH has just announced $5.3M in two new awards through the Autism Centers of Excellence (ACE) program to support autism research studies led by two University of California investigative teams, at UCLA and the UC Davis Medical Center MIND Institute. ACE funding is earmarked for large, multi-disciplinary studies into the origins of autism spectrum neurological disorders and avenues for their treatment. In the case of the two latest awardees, one is a clinical behavioral study and one is a study of genetic variants. The $5.3M is initial one-year funding, with extensions of up to five years. The ACE program includes both centers and networks. Centers are made up of multiple investigators at one site working together on a specific research problem; networks include investigative teams from different sites engaged in a focused study. Both UCLA and UC Davis are ACE centers and will lead the current research projects, though in collaboration with colleagues at other research institutions, namely Harvard, UW, Vanderbilt, Emory, Johns Hopkins, and Yale. As with all ACE research, data and findings are collected centrally by the NIH to maximize their availability to the larger research community.

California to Spend $32M on Stem Cell Research Biobank

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Mar 20, 2013

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is a major funding agency for stem cell research in the Golden State. Since voters approved the establishment of the agency in 2004, the CIRM has spent billions on research and facilities with the aim of making California the stem cell capital of the US. Now, in a move to advance that research mission even further, the agency has announced awards of $32M to investigators and stem cell companies to create a biobank of diseased cell lines for the use of researchers around the world. Called the Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (hiPSC) Initiative Awards, the project will generate and ensure the availability of high quality disease-specific hiPSC resources for disease modeling, target discovery and drug discovery and development for prevalent, genetically complex diseases
