Washington State funding information
Washington State at Pullman is a $706 million dollar R & D marketplace, with over $218 million dollars in research grants in 2012. Last year, the Pullman BioResearch Product Faire™ attracted 222 attendees from 25 different research buildings on campus.  The university is constantly seeking to improve itself and is currently undergoing a construction boom.  In early spring 2013, a new $96M Veterinary Medical Research Building (VMRB), will be open for business with 77,250 usable square feet for researchers. Moreover, Spokane will get a new Biomedical and Health Sciences Building with $37 million in grants from the Washington State Legislature. This new building will be finished in 2013 with the money coming from capital financing and state bonds.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center funding information
The Fred Hutch Cancer center represents over $400 million in R & D, receiving $239 million in new research grants in 2012. The BioResearch Product Faire™ last year at the Fred Hutch attracted 151 people from 10 buildings and 20 departments interested in viewing new technology and products. The research complex is always attracting new funding grants with its state-of-the art research. In 2002, FHCRC attracted a $12.7 million dollar NIH grant to create a multi-center life science group aimed at curing prostate cancer. The life science group was named the Pacific Northwest Prostate Cancer or SPORE. The Spore facility demonstrated its ability to conduct cutting edge research when it received a second $11.8 million grant in 2011.  In fact, for 2012 evolutionary biologist Harmit Malik, is researching an evolutionary arms race with $850K in funding from the NIH and the Lupus Research Institute, for his three projects on: HIV, lupus, and the poxvirus.

University of Washington, Seattle  funding information
At the University of Washington our shows can help you gain access to a $1.15 billion dollar research marketplace. In fact, the university received in FY 2012 $431 million in new research grants funding. At our event last year we had 110 participants from 11 different building and 27 departments with 30% were decision makers. The university continues to demonstrate why it is a top research hub with new funding projects and programs. U-W opened the doors in 2012 to a new $77M Molecular Engineering and Sciences Building aimed at creating new kind of engineering for the 21st Century by combining developments in chemistry, biology, physics, nanotechnology and predictive modeling.  Moreover, the Hutch received a boost to help commercialize their basic research discoveries with a $65 million NIH grant. The money will be spend on the UW Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) research program to help them improve and stream line commercial process.
