More Reasons to Consider Duke as Lab Product Sales Mecca

Posted by David Larsen on Mon, Dec 08, 2014

Are you looking to grow your lab product sales revenues for 2015?   

Duke University spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year on life science research. Bolstered by NIH funding plus private support from foundations and individuals, Duke University is one of the foremost research institutions in the world. This makes for an ideal marketplace for lab suppliers and vendors to showcase products directly to managers, purchasers, and researchers at this top funded research university. 

10 reasons lab suppliers and researchers do well at Duke:

  1. NIH 2014 Funding: $343,577,100 
  2. The National Institutes of Health announced the first wave of investments on Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014. The grants total $46 million to support the goals of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative.
  3. Duke Clinical Research Institute is the nation’s largest and oldest academic clinical research organization. The Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy is a campus-wide, interdisciplinary initiative to study the broad challenges of the genomic revolution.
  4. A seven-year contract renewal will provide a total of $13.9 million in funding from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health for HIV/AIDS studies.
  5. The Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) will serve as the research and data coordinating center for a five-year, $20 million project to evaluate the effectiveness of different treatment strategies for women with uterine fibroids.
  6. Duke and the other five new clinical sites will each receive grants totaling approximately $7.2 million over four years to evaluate and investigate cases that involve patients with prolonged, undiagnosed conditions.
  7. Duke Medicine has been awarded $15 million to support an innovative research program that explores the use of umbilical cord blood cells to treat autism, stroke, cerebral palsy and related brain disorders.
  8. Duke University and the University of Colorado schools of medicine have received a $10 million grant from the National Institute for Nursing Research (NINR), part of the National Institutes of Health, to continue the development of the Palliative Care Research Cooperative Group (PCRC) over the next five years.
  9. The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has awarded the distinction of Fellow to 401 of its members this year.  Five members of the Duke faculty are being recognized for distinguished scientific and societal efforts.
  10. This is the highest NIH standing for the Duke School of Nursing, moving up two places from last year. As of October 2014, the School has received $4.24 million in research funding from the NIH.

We invite life science lab equipment suppliers to join science consumables vendors in bringing the best new tools and technologies to Raleigh-Area researchers at the Duke University BioResearch Product Faire™ Event. This lab product sourcing event will take place May 13th, 2015.
