Just How Big is the Research Market at UC Davis? 

If you are in the Lab equipment sales market, we encourage you to take a moment to consider the Davis California marketplace.

For a small city in the heart of California's agricultural empire UC Davis research program packs a pretty significant punch. Consider the following fun facts for UC Davis life science research:

NIH 2012 Ranking: 29th (Direct plus indirect costs but excluding R & D contracts and ARRA awards) = $185,824,385 [2]

  • In 2013, The University of California, Davis Health System received over $200 million in external research funding. [3]
  • UC Davis as part of a consortium received $34 million from the National Institutes of Health to develop new mouse models of diseases such as cancer, obesity and diabetes, in order to find better ways of preventing and treating these diseases [4]
  • In 2013, the University of California, Davis received $180.6 million in NIH research grants [5]
  • UC Davis has almost 1,000 basic science, translational and clinical research studies in progress, all made possible through state and federal funding as well as grants and funding from private foundations; pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and philanthropic donations. [6]
  • In July of 2012, UC Davis researchers were granted $53 million in awards towards stem cell research and development and to bring results to the clinical trial phase. $20 million of this funding is allocated towards Huntington's disease. [7]

Join us this February for the Sacramento BioResearch Product Faire™ Event at UC Davis Med Center:

Last year this event attracted 159 active researchers. Of these participants, 44 registerd as purchasing agents, professors and post docs, while 18 were registerd as lab managers. The attendees came from 17 different research buildings and 32 departments around campus. Our life science marketing events take place in just a few short hours. In the time you would have spent canvassing the University of California, Davis campus hoping to talk to researchers, you can instead follow up on leads with a complete list of event attendees double-checked for accuracy to save you time.
