With a long history of making fundamental contributions to the life sciences, Rockefeller University is one of the most powerful research universities in the United States. The university is credited with the discovery that DNA transmits hereditary information, the modernization of cell biology with the introduction of electron microscopes in biological research, the development of influenza immunization, and the discovery of the connection between cholesterol and heart disease. Funded by a variety of sources, Rockefeller receives support from endowment income, philanthropic donations and research grants.Read More

Five new private gifts of over $29 million will be given to Rockefeller University to help the university go through the current federal budget cuts. The gifts range in size from $3 million to $10 million and are a part of fundraising campaign for Collaborative Science, which set up at 2008.
This month Rockefeller University announced plans to build a 160,000-square-foot research facility that will extend the campus over to Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive and East River Esplanade. The $240 million project plans to modernize a laboratory building and invest in other local constructions to benefit the community.
Our Rockefeller University life science marketing event is approaching on March 27th, 2014 and is the perfect life science marketing opportunity for lab suppliers selling lab equipment in New York. When you purchase by December 27th, 2013, you are eligible for early registration pricing. Early registration for our life science marketing events is the best value way of getting the word out on your lab products and life science solutions.
Early Registration for Lab Suppliers wanting to participate in March life science marketing events will be extended from December 1, 2013 to December 15th, 2013. Vendors wanting to meet face to face with life science researchers can save up to $250 when they register to participate in any of the following events by December 15, 2013. In addition to showcasing the newest lab equipment, products and supplies, vendors can meet with researchers at all levels at these March events:

Are you working to sell lab equipment in New York? Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.’s life science events at Rockefeller University may be the perfect life science marketing opportunity for lab suppliers in the New York area. Our Rockefeller BioResearch Product Faire™ Event will be held on March 27th, 2014. Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. events provide the opportunity for lab suppliers to meet researchers, purchasing agents and lab managers at the best-funded universities across the country in only a few hours time.
Researchers at Rockefeller University, led by Dr. Gaby Maimon, recently received NIH funding for their studies of fruit flies’ neuronal activity in decision-making, which they believe has the potential to impact pharmaceuticals for human mental illness. According to the Rockefeller University website, Dr. Maimon’s research team aims to “link the electrical activity of neurons and the biochemical action of molecules to their computational roles in animal behavior. The lab has a particular interest in understanding how central brain structures, distant from the sensory and motor periphery, govern behavioral choice.” The latest research grant money has been given to an ongoing project titled “Linking Genes to Higher Brain Function by Way of Cellular Electrophysiology.” The project received $2.5 million from the NIH. The NIH RePORTER details the goals of the project in an abstract posted online:
Researchers at Rockefeller University received a $1.9 million NIH grant this year for the project “Identification of Cell Type-Specific Actions of Antipsychotic Drugs.” The study is being led by Paul Greengard, PhD. According to the Rockefeller University webpage, Greengard’s research aims are to understand the molecular basis of communication between neurons in the brain in mammals, clarify the molecular defects responsible for a number of neurological and psychiatric disorders and determine the molecular mechanisms by which neuro- and psychoactive drugs produce their pharmacological actions.
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.’s three back-to-back New York life science marketing events are quickly approaching starting October 1st, 2013, and they are the perfect opportunities for lab suppliers to market their university lab equipment and life science solutions. Our New York life science marketing events attracted 850 attendees last year. Of the attendees, 216 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 83 were lab managers. The visitors represented 63 different research buildings and 153 departments across the three campuses. How many days of canvassing campuses would it take to visit over 150 research departments? These three life science marketing events introduce lab suppliers to hundreds of leads over the space of a few hours in just three days.
Biotechnology Calendar, Inc.’s Rockefeller University life science marketing events are held twice a year, and our second event is coming up quickly on October 2nd, 2013. Rockefeller University is a research powerhouse in New York whose main research areas include biochemistry, structural biology, immunology, virology, microbiology, medical sciences, and molecular cell and developmental biology. According to the Rockefeller Universtiy website, the university has 72 laboratories that conduct cutting edge research. Rockefeller University also received a $2.5 million NIH award, a grant renewal that has allowed researchers to continue their studies of chemotherapeutic responsiveness in cancer.
