Life Science Funding News on our Company Blog

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Sep 25, 2013

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.

U. Penn Researchers Redesign Painkiller Receptor

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Sep 10, 2013

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.
