Anschutz Medical Launches New MS Translational Research Laboratory

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Apr 10, 2012

The University of Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus has long been a leader in understanding Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with numerous clinical trials and essential basic research. Now the University plans to create the translational Research Laboratory at the Rocky Mountain MS Center, which will transform its investigation into treatment for the disease that will directly benefit patients.

This expansion comes on the heels of several groundbreaking clinical trials that happened at Anschutz Medical Campus including the new drug tysabri which can actually stop the advancement of MS symptoms and sometimes even reverse damage the disease has caused.

translational research laboratoryCU Anschutz scientists are also conducting groundbreaking research into the causes of MS.  For example, Dr. Tim Vollmer, Professor and Director of Clinical Research at CU Denver (image courtesy of Anschutz Medical), is currently investigating a regulatory cell that is missing in MS patients which may be the key to a future vaccine for the disease.

The new translational research laboratory seeks to build on the success of recent clinical trials by taking new research discoveries and transforming them into realistic and effective therapies. MS translational research would allow new research discovers to directly benefit patients and greatly aid in the fight against this terrible disease.

The University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center was created on 2004 with the merging of The University of Colorado in Denver and University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.  With Nearly $400 Million in NSF and nearly $200 Million in NIH funding this institution is one of the newest and most modern in the world  regarding the combination of patient care, research and education.  Currently, this campus collaborates with and operates in close proximity to Fitzsimons Life Science District.

On June 12th, 2012, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. is presenting the 3rd Annual BioResearch product Faire on campus at the Anschutz medical campus.  If you are a lab supplier or scientist in the Denver area looking to network with others in the science research field, consider attending this science market event.

Our trade shows have helped university researchers and lab managers connect with the top laboratory suppliers for over 19-years now.
