Biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers in Cincinnati will find a well-funded and vibrant research marketplace at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, as recent NIH and NSF research funding statistics show. In 2012, the NIH awarded the university $73.9 million in research funding. The funding was distributed among a number of different projects in various science disciplines. Of the different departments awarded research funding at the University of Cincinnati, the money was given out as listed below:

It’s no secret that eating fruits and vegetables is vital to a healthy diet. After all, everyone knows an apple a day keeps the doctor away. A new study on apples from Ohio State University takes that paradigm even father. Besides serving as a delicious snack, juice, and pie ingredient, apples appear to have cholesterol-reducing effects as well.

Sometimes it makes more sense to start from scratch and get it right than to try and retrofit and modernize older lab buildings. That's just what Ohio State University in Columbus decided to do for its Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building (CBEC). The new 225,000 gsf lab building broke ground last month and will replace 4 older facilities that had deferred maintenance and lacked proper floor-to-floor height, structural dimensions, and environmental stability. The New Koffolt Laboratories will be LEED-certifiable (possibly Silver) and will constitute a substantial upgrade with their science wet labs, computational research spaces, shared core laboratories, instructional spaces, and offices. The $126M project is due to be completed in September 2014.

University of Cincinnati College of Medicine molecular geneticist Daniel Hassett (right) has made a name for himself as a determined researcher in the fight against cystic fibrosis (CF). He is also on the front line of bioscience research into creating "superbugs" that eat waste and generate energy, improving dramatically on the efficiency of traditional waste water treatment systems. In a radio interview on WVXU Cincinnati's Focus on Technology, commentator Ann Thompson describes the problem: the largest user of energy is wastewater treatment; the second largest user of water is energy production. If you can find a way to both clean water and generate electricity, you're in business.

There's a reason why top university medical centers garner the prestige (and the funding) that they do: research labs + medical school + hospital = optimization of all three units, with ripe opportunities for collaboration, sharing of resources, and recruiting the best medical scientists. So there's always reason to cheer when a major university med center like Ohio State builds new facilities, whether they're clinical or research, because both will support the institution's overall mission and budget. In the case of Ohio State's new James Cancer Center and Solove Research Institute, both patients seeking treatment and scientists doing basic and applied cancer research will benefit from the state-of-the-art building that is rising on the Columbus medical campus right now, with its opening due in 2014. The complex will house the cancer center on 12 stories; the other 8 will comprise the critical care hospital, mechanical equipment and an as yet undetermined floor.

In the world of sustainable energy production and good environmental stewardship, Ohio is producing biogas from agricultural and food-processing waste through a successful partnership between the state university and business. The Cleveland based Quasar Energy Group is working in collaboration with Ohio State's Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) to turn 550,000 gallons of biomatter into energy at its flagship anaerobic digester at the OARDC's BioHio Research Park.

Ohio State University's Medical Center is undergoing a huge expansion and modernization effort with its ProjectOne $1Billion new medical facility. Outdated buildings have been demolished and the concrete has been poured for the state-of-the-art Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute complex due to open in 2014. ProjectOne is the largest development project in Ohio State's history and is expected to add $1.7 billion to Ohio’s economy. Some of these gains will certainly include the purchasing of equipment, supplies and services for the medical center, as well as future gains through life science research funding and the commercialization of biomedical research discoveries.
