UC Riverside Gets Additional $15 Million a Year for Med School

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Jul 09, 2013

The University of California, Riverside was recently guaranteed $15 million a year in continuous funding for the University’s much anticipated medical school when Governor Jerry Brown signed the state’s budget on June 27th. The University of California, Riverside’s medical school will be the first new public medical school on the West Coast in almost 50 years and is expected to be a powerful economic force on the region. The school will also help address the low doctor-to-patient ratio in the region.

Biomedical Science Researchers at UCR Find Alzheimer's Breakthrough

Posted by Katheryn Rein on Wed, Jul 11, 2012

Biomedical science researchers have worked tirelessly at the University of California, Riverside since the discovery of a crucial link involving mice, humans, and Alzheimer's disease. Back in 2006, UCR researchers, in a collaborative effort with the University of South Florida, discovered an interesting connection between the immune system and Alzheimer's disease while experimenting on lab mice. Professor Douglas Ethell, the assistant professor of Biomedical Sciences at UCR, along with the USF's own Professor Gary Arendash of the Johnnie B. Byrd Institute, was instrumental in this find.

New BioMedical Research Buildings, Programs, Funding at UC Riverside

Posted by BCI Staff on Fri, Jun 01, 2012

 UC Riverside, once considered by some as the poor cousin to more established UC's, is now a thriving beehive of growth and activity in the areas of biomedicine and life science research. UC Riverside has always been strong in agriculture, business, and engineering; but UC Riverside had lacked the prestige that comes with being a medical training center, until now.  With a new medical faculty, a new medical school, new buildings, and new research programs, UC Riverside is on its way to becoming a world class research institute in the medical science field; a title previously reserved for its rich cousin's in Southern and Northern California.

Riverside Stem Cell Research Consortium to Maximize Resources, Funding Opportunities

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, May 08, 2012

The University of California at Riverside is part of the Inland Empire, the geographic area just south and east of the Greater Los Angeles metro area and Orange County. As a member of the UC System, Riverside enjoys the advantage of being a part of the strongest public university system in the United States. Now UCR is making other collaborative ties, this time not statewise but more locally: by teaming up with Loma Linda University and Cal State San Bernardino to pool stem cell laboratory resources. The new regional entity will be known as the Inland Empire Stem Cell Consortium, and it will allow all three schools to qualify for increased federal funding in addition to the other benefits of joining forces.

UC Riverside's Epilepsy Research May Aid in Cure

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Jul 14, 2011

            Using computational models, UC Riverside neuroscience researchers Maxim Bazhenov and Giri Krishnan discovered precisely how neurons function during epileptic seizures. With this information, they were able to determine what chemicals could impede the neuron’s misfiring, which could lead to breakthrough discoveries in new antiepileptic drugs.
