Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Oct 11, 2013

Lab suppliers working to market life science solutions in Philadelphia will find a market rich with life science funding at Thomas Jefferson University. According to recent NIH and NSF funding statistics, the NIH awarded Thomas Jefferson University $49.7 million in research funding in 2012. In addition to receiving NIH research funding, Thomas Jefferson University received $318,984 in NSF life science funding for life science projects alone.

The NSF reported that Thomas Jefferson University’s total R&D expenditures in the life sciences were $101.2 million in 2009. In 2011, the NIH reported the university’s direct plus indirect costs in the life sciences, excluding R&D contracts and ARRA awards totaled $52.7 million.

Science researchers at Thomas Jefferson University recently received $2.6 million in life science funding for translational research in cancer. Some of this NIH funding may be available to lab suppliers working to market life science solutions at Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. Thomas Jefferson University life science marketing events. The project leader for this awarded funding is Dr. Richard Pestell. According to Thomas Jefferson University, Dr. Pestell’s research focuses o­n understanding the mechanisms governing cell-cycle regulated gene transcription and the part these proteins play in tumorigenesis and differentiation. The NIH RePORTER provides more details on the Cancer Center Support Grant Thomas Jefferson University is receiving from the NIH:

“This proposal for a Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) requests funding to support the cancer research activities of the Kimmel Cancer Center (KCC), in order to increase the survival and quality of life of cancer patients by translating basi research discoveries into new strategies to prevent, diagnose, monitor and cure human cancer. The major thrust of the Kimmel Cancer Center is in discovery and translation of the latest findings in the genetics, cell biology, biochemistry and immunology of cancer into novel modalities to cure cancer. The Kimmel Cancer Center consists of six programs and ten shared resources to support the research programs. Investigators in each program are involved in intra-programmatic and inter-programmatic collaborations and have been extremely successful in obtaining peer-reviewed funding for these collaborative studies.”
