Missouri has a rich market of potential buyers of lab supplies and biotechnology products, according to recent NSF and NIH research funding statistics for Washington University in St. Louis. In 2012, the NSF awarded the university $14.4 million in research funding. The NSF-funded projects are located within a number of programs in the life sciences, including evolutionary processes clusters, molecular biophysics, cellular dynamics and function, neural systems clusters, behavioral systems clusters, macrosystem biology and bioinformatics. We have spotlighted the top five-funded projects below:

Some interesting NSF-Funded Research Projects:

  • Evolutionary Processes Cluster: Conflict and constraint in multicellular life cycles -- $740,000
  • Molecular Biophysics: Molecular Basis for Pre-Receptor Modulation of Plant Hormones by Acyl Acid Amido Synthetases -- $250,287
  • Molecular Biophysics: Phase Behavior of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins -- $208,548
  • Cellular Dynamics and Function: Role of the Plant Kinesin FRA1 in Constructing the Cell Wall -- $199,958
  • Molecular Biophysics: Dynamic Regulation of the Form and Function of Photosystem II, a Membrane Protein Complex -- $187,900

In addition to receiving NSF funding, Washington University was also awarded $36.6 million in research funding by the NIH in 2013. Of the different bio departments at Washington University in St. Louis, the money was distributed as follows:

  • Anatomy/ Cell Biology – 2 awards, $601,920
