SCAP Grant Awards go to several California Bioresearchers

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, Jan 21, 2015


cellCalifornia is home to some serious unicellular research, and the National Institute of Health is taking notice. Bioresearch programs at California institutions accounted for a significant portion of the $7.9 million in grants which the NIH awarded to researchers studying single cells. The request for 2014 applications came from the NIH last December to fund programs related to many areas of cellular biology, including personalized treatment for diseases at a cellular level. The grants are supported by the NIH Common Fund’s Single Cell Analysis Program (SCAP) and represents a major boost for many of the 25 research teams that were chosen to receive funding.

AIDS Vaccine Research at OHSU Funded by $25M from Gates Foundation Grant

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Sep 08, 2014

Once a stigmatized disease, AIDS is now a primary focus for many researchers seeking to address deadly health problems and potentially save the lives of millions of men, women and children. AIDS killed 1.5 million people worldwide last year, a staggering number that has drawn the attention of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Addressing this disease is a priority for the Gates Foundation, as is evidenced by all the work they have done to select and fund promising research. Fortunately, scientists all over the world are searching for innovative solutions to curing this disease. The Gates Foundation has found one likely contender for a vaccine that may also work as a cure in the work of a science researcher at Oregon Health and Science University.

New Research Building Opens With OHSU Life Science Funding

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Jul 25, 2014

Oregon Health and Science University along with two other public Oregon schools recently opened a new life sciences building, the state’s largest academic building, on Portland’s South Waterfront. The project received $110 million in life science funding from taxpayers, $92 million in funding from Oregon Health and Science University institutional funding, $83 million from OHSU philanthropy and $10 million from the TriMet regional mass transit agency. The riverfront property for the new research building was donated by the Schnitzer family to help OHSU increase its campus presence in Portland.

Life Science Funding Sponsors Innovative Research at UCSB

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Feb 12, 2014

Researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara recently conducted a study on fruit flies that shows that diet experience can alter taste preference. This finding has been speculated about before, but its implications now are important because taste preference is essential for survival when animals and humans are forced to respond to changing sources of food. The researchers exposed fruit flies to camphor, which the fruit flies disliked, and which caused a reduction in the response by the Transient Receptor Potential-Like (TRPL) channel. The degredation of the TRPL protein by an enzyme called E3 ubiquitin ligase, or Ube3a, caused a reduction in the fruit flie’s distaste for camphor.
