University of California, Irvine
BioResearch Product Faire™
We invite lab suppliers to meet with researchers at the University of California Irvine's $329M life science research marketplace.
The University of California, Irvine’s commitment to research ranks the school among the top 100 universities in the nation for life science R & D expenditures.
The campus’s commitment to research extends into areas such as:
- Health-related issues such as cancer and infectious diseases
- Neurodegeneration, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, learning and memory
- Stem cell therapies
- Environmental and evolutionary studies
Neuroscience is an ever-expanding life science field. There is so much still unknown about the brain and diseases that affect it, and scientists are constantly performing research and publishing new findings. Diseases such as Alzheimer's, which affects memory and causes behavioral problems, are continually being investigated with the ultimate goal of finding a cure and creating new treatment methods. Recently, a team of researchers found a connection between the memory loss associated with Alzheimer's Disease and certain inflammatory cells in the brain.Read More
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have recently found that people with hypertension can benefit from electroacupuncture – a form of acupuncture that uses electrical currents to stimulate various pressure points in the body.Read More

Scientists at UC Irvine have created a new method to quickly and accurately track the progression of Huntington’s disease. Irvine researchers studied Huntington’s proteins present in spinal fluid to determine that they held a “seeding” property, which is essential to the disease’s progression.Read More

Brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, refers to the ability of the brain to react to the variety of changes that occur in the brain’s synapses or neural pathways over time. More specifically, plasticity involves changes that occur in the brain as a result of learning and experience, which is derived from emotions, behavior, thinking, and environment. As a person reaches adulthood, the brain loses plasticity and becomes more rigid in its layout and function. Loss of plasticity also commonly occurs in those affected with traumatic brain injuries or disease.Read More

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, more than 2 million people a year in the U.S. acquire antibiotic-resistant blood infections which result in nearly 23,000 deaths. This is precisely why researchers at University of California, Irvine are going to receive a five-year, $5 million award from the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases (NIAID), for the development of a new biotechnology that detects infections in the bloodstream.Read More

At the University of California, Irvine, researchers have developed a process so powerful that it can unboil egg whites. Surprising as it may sound, the goal of the project wasn’t actually to unboil eggs in particular, but it’s a catchy and impressive-sounding achievement that emphasizes how revolutionary the technology is.Read More
