The Hospira Foundation recently donated $5M to the University of Chicago to establish a new Professorship in Oncology, greatly boosting the university’s resources for cancer research. Awards of this magnitude are not uncommon at this respected institution, allowing the university to spend in excess of $390M on R&D in their last reported year. 

Other well-funded departments include: 

  • Internal Medicine/Medicine - $60.9 million
  • Genetics - $16.2 million
  • Biochemistry - $13.2 million
  • Biology - $10.5 million
  • Pathology - $9.2 million

Top lab supply companies are invited to gain visibility across Chicago’s research campus by exhibiting at Biotechnology Calendar's upcoming lab product marketing event.

Reserving an exhibit space between now and June 22, 2016 will allow companies to save with the early pricing discount. Lab suppliers who are interested should call 530-272-6675 today or visit the link below while space is still available.
