University of Cincinnati’s Medical Campus Master Plan entered its second phase with the start of construction on two new buildings. The Health Sciences Building will become the new home of the University’s College of Allied Health. The other new building will house the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. The construction is part of a $480 million project aimed to keep the university on the cutting edge of education, medical care, and research.

Though it has been over five hundred years since the Black Death devastated the population of Europe, life science researchers today believe that we can learn something about HIV infections by studying the genetic aftermath of the plague.
If you got behind the wheel of your vehicle to find that the fuel gauge had mysteriously disappeared, would you still drive it? University of Cincinnati researchers are studying a creative approach to fighting tumors that involves disabling cancer cells' energy resource sensors to stop them from proliferating.Read More
Though they are easy to take for granted, our five senses are the best tools we have for interacting with our environment. This is why a large sector of biotechnology is dedicated to preserving and improving these senses. We've seen Ann Arbor researchers restore lost sense of smell and Chicago researchers restore lost vision in years past. At the University of Cincinnati, a research group is working on effectively restoring hearing in children.Read More
Breast cancer is one of the most common forms cancer, with about 230,000 new cases in women and 2,300 new cases in men diagnosed each year. Many researchers around the world are dedicated to studying breast cancer, to find new treatment methods and gain better understandings of how this cancer is caused, how it grows, and how it can be stopped. Research ranges from trying to starve breast cancer tumors to studying how specific proteins are involved with the cancer.Read More
We often discuss research breakthroughs in heart health, like Ohio State’s gene therapy discovered earlier this year. To carry out such procedures requires state of the art equipment. It is with this mentality that the University of Cincinnati has opened an expanded, upgraded, “hybrid” operating room at their Medical Center.Read More
A team of bioresearchers working at the University of Cincinnati has earned a $4.6 million grant to fund their studies on diarrheal disease. Their novel approach involves growing human stomachs and intestinal tissue outside of the body in order to test treatments without putting humans at risk.Read More
Over the past 15 years, the Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cincinnati has grown immensely. Starting out with only a few researchers and physicians, the center has continuously grown in amount of faculty members, and funding received. Since its founding, more than $60 million has been donated to the institute, helping it become the leading neuroscience research and care center in the Cincinnati area.Read More
At the University of Cincinnati, researchers have developed a way to reduce the number of antibodies in a patient’s body. This may seem counterproductive without a complete understanding of what antibodies are good (and bad) for. Just ask E. Steve Woodle, MD, a researcher at UC who is also the director of the division of transplantation at the UC College of Medicine. He’ll tell you that antibodies view transplanted organs as threats and attack the organs instead of accepting them.Read More
