Science Research Funding Increases by $8M in 12 Months at UCR

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jun 02, 2014

Federal science research funding has taken a great leap at the University of California, Riverside in the past 12 months: an $8 million leap, to be exact, in federally funded new research grants. UC Riverside aspires to gain a bigger market share over the next five years. Currently, the university is in the top 100 universities for federally funded research. By working on innovative projects and increasing the UC Riverside influence in the science research community, UC Riverside hopes to reach the top 50 universities in coming years. The University of California, Riverside campus aims to triple funding in about ten years, requiring an annual growth of about 14 percent.

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.

Riverside Microbiology Research Uncovers Role of RNA Silencing in Phytophthora Pathogenesis

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Feb 13, 2013

Plant pathogens like the one that led to the notorious Irish Potato Famine of the 1840's are still the subject of intense research at institutions like the University of California Riverside, as the battle continues between mega-crop farmers and diseases that have learned to infiltrate the plant’s immune system. Just what the genetic mechanism is that allows for that infiltration has remained elusive until recently. Studying the notorious oomycete pathogen Phytophthora in its multiple forms, UC Riverside researchers have identified a crucial step in the disease attack of the cell, namely the activity of virulence proteins in blocking RNA silencing pathways, which leads to immune system compromise. The role of RNA silencing as an important immune component is a new research direction and one that is being pioneered at UCR.

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.
