Researchers at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will both receive grant money to continue their breast cancer research. Ten programs at the two schools will receive $3.6 million from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the money will be used to study the causes of breast cancer and work towards developing vaccines.
Science Market Update
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation recently gave the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill $8 million to improve the health of mothers and infants in Malawi. UNC Project-Malawi was originally established to address the HIV/AIDS crisis in Malawi, and now works in improving the problems associated with malaria, pediatrics, trauma, burns, cancer, family planning, emergency obstetrics, tuberculosis and other infectious diseases. This story comes in the wake of a report that North Carolina triangle universities received $2 billion in funding last school year.

Lab suppliers marketing university lab equipment and life science solutions in the northwest United States may be interested in the latest funding news at the University of Oregon, where professor of biology Janis Weeks has received a research grant from Grand Challenges Explorations, an initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Lab suppliers who sell green university lab equipment may be interested in marketing their environmentally-conscious life science solutions at the Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. life science marketing event held at the University of Oregon, which has been ranked one of the greenest universities in the United States.
As humans, we like to think of ourselves as superbly evolved, which is a completely valid standpoint if you place emphasis on things like consciousness and inventiveness. But our cohabitants of Earth have developed some impressive abilities of their own, many of which we can only barely understand. Take for example the bacteria that are shocking several researchers at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities lab with their unique ability to change the electrical state of metals.

For all the excitement there’s been over stem cells in biotechnology (including in our Science Market Update posts- for example Mayo Clinic Spearheads Regenerative Medicine and California to Spend $32M on Stem Cell Research Biobank), one very exciting application for the technology that has been heretofore unannounced is stem cell transplants in the brain. Here to remedy this fact is the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where it was just recently discovered that stem cells can form nerve cells which can actually increase learning and memory capability.
