Researchers at Harvard University received a $9.8 million grant from the NIH this year for the New England Regional Center of Excellence in Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases Research. The project leader is listed as Dr. Dennis Kasper. According to the Harvard University website, Dr. Kasper and his research team are interested in the interactions of microbes, including commensals and pathogens, with the immune system. The NIH RePORTER goes into further detail about the organization receiving NIH funding:
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. selects a winner of our Five Star Program at the end of every event we organize who we believe demonstrated superb marketing and salesmanship skills in working to sell lab equipment and life science products. Our Five Star Winners bring large crowds to their booth and do an excellent job communicating their product’s message, all while staying until the very end of the show. Five Star Winners communicate well with attendees, create and attractive display, conduct interesting demonstrations and keep a professional demeanor throughout the shows.
While the biotechnology and medical-device industries are growing as a whole nationwide, Massachusetts added over 8,000 jobs in these sectors in the past five years. Even more interestingly, the life science industry’s employment rate has increased 12% across the country since 2000, but Massachusetts’ grew at a rate exceeding twice that number. The Massachusetts Life Science Center has a great deal to do with life science employment in the Boston area. Lawmakers continue to fund the center generously given its healthy economic impact on the state.
