USC Receives $12M to Study Genetic Variants in Breast Cancer

Posted by Laura Braden on Thu, Aug 11, 2016

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lives, making it the second most common cancer for American women. However, breast cancer does not affect all women equally. Past studies have shown that women of African descent with breast cancer die at a higher rate than white women. Researchers at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine have received a grant of $12 million from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to study the disparities in breast cancer in women.

USC Receives $300k for Stem Cell Fellowships

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, Feb 25, 2015

Young scientists often contribute in spectacular ways to bioresearch. Without adequate funding, however, many important and dedicated junior scientists are limited in how they are able to contribute to scientific understanding.

Paying for lab equipment, salaries, and adequate research resources can all be limiting factors for some scientists, but perhaps not for junior post doctoral fellows working on stem cell research at the University of Southern California.

Thanks to a recent gift from the Hearst Foundations to USC in the amount of $300,000, exceptional junior postdoctoral fellows can continue to pursue stem cell research and work on important projects at USC.

Turning on the Fat-Burning Gene at USC

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jan 08, 2015

As we usher in the new year, many resolve to burn off the fat they stored up during the holiday season. We talked about how biotechnology can help with this endeavor last year in our article about burning fat like a squirrel. Just in time to ring in 2015, the University of Southern California has released a study about a revolutionary way to control fat storage.
