Redesigned Molecule at Washington University Leads to Better Treatments for Osteoporosis

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Oct 20, 2014

Osteoporosis affects a large portion of the population in the United States. According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), over 52 million people currently have osteoporosis or are at the risk of getting it in the future. With such a high amount of people affected, many treatments have been used on patients suffering from bone loss. However, the current treatments for this disease have been linked with an increased risk of getting infections and certain types of cancers later on. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have recently discovered a way to create treatments for osteoporosis that lower the risk of aftereffects.

Science Research Funding $ Strong from Federal, Venture, and Charitable Sources

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Feb 29, 2012

Federal basic and applied science research funding could see an increase of 3.3% over 2012 (enacted) levels, to $64B, if the President's budget request for 2013 is approved.  Holding tight to the promise of supporting technology and innovation while at the same time respecting the deficit cap imposed by Congress, the latest budget request proposes only level $30.7B funding for the NIH but funding increases for the NSF, NIST, and DOE Office of Science, with a combined total of $13.1B. science research funding resized 600

Boulder Biosciences Get Boost from New Colorado Biofrontiers Institute

Posted by BCI Staff on Thu, Oct 27, 2011

boulder biosciencesLast Spring, we wrote a popular blog (New CU-Boulder Biotech Building to Anchor Local Bioscience Industry) on the Colorado Institute in Molecular Biotechnology (CIMB), its future home in the new Jenny Smoly Caruthers Biotechnology Building, and the potential impact on the local economy.  While the Caruthers biotech building has pushed back its opening date from November 2011 to early in 2012, the CIMB is going strong and has in fact reorganized to become the new Biofrontiers Institute.

Advanced Robotics Research Funding by NSF + UMN Recon Throwbots

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Jul 26, 2011

When the President launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP) last month, a key component was the National Robotics Initiative (NRI), which will pool the resources of multiple government agencies to support the development of robots designed to augment the work and health of human beings.  These are known as assistive systems, in contrast to the totalitarian robots of science fiction dystopias that threaten to supplant humans.
