The University of Pennsylvania is currently in the planning stages of constructing a new research campus along the Schuylkill River. The South Bank of the Schuylkill, pronounced ‘SKOO-kəl,’ is a vital component of the University of Pennsylvania’s campus development vision. The Penn Connects 2.0 strategy has added 3 million square feet of space to new UPenn research campuses since 2006.

Research funding at the University of Pennsylvania will increase in 2014 thanks to the grants from the NIH and several other organizations.
UPenn is a top research marketplace with significant funding from federal and private sources. In addtion to the main campus, UPENN is developing property on the Schulkill River to expand its research facilities and programs.
At the University of Pennsylvania, three faculty members have been awarded Sloan Fellowships. For over 50 years the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has identified and recognized young scientists with significant leadership potential. We'd like to invite our readers in joining us to recognize the already significant contributions and long term career potential of the following UPENN scientists as reported by Evan Lerner today at UPENN:
In an article on our Science Market Update blog last week, we featured some life science funding news stories that we covered in our Life Science Company and Industry News Briefs blog the week before. We’d like to do the same this week because a number of last week’s funding news stories may be of interest to lab suppliers working to sell lab equipment at these well-funded research institutions. In the following paragraphs, we’ll give a brief summary of what schools received funding, how much funding they received, and what the topic of research is. We’ll also include links for further reading.

The University of Pennsylvania recently celebrated the completion of one of its most successful fundraising projects in history when Penn Medicine Washington Square opened on Thursday. The new facility is 153,000 square feet and located in Center City Philadelphia. It was designed with environmentalism in mind, which is evidenced by the greenery growing on the building’s roof. The building will serve as an outpatient care facility for Pennsylvania Hospital.

A new study at the University of Pennsylvania, published in the journal PLOS ONE, has had researchers develop a variant of the mu opioid receptor that is water-soluble and can be grown in large quantities in bacteria. When the mu opiod receptor binds with opioid molecules, a strong reduction in the sensation of pain occurs. Unfortunately, fatal side effects can occur. According to a University of Pennsylvania news article, researchers at the university sought to address this issue by identifying the hydrophobic amino acids on the exterior of a structured model of the protein.
Drexel University in Philadelphia recently created an entrepreneurship incubator that aims to fund and seed investment in companies ready to move into the market. According to MedCity News, the incubator will support medical and biotech startups along with a more diverse portfolio of startups.
