A promising relationship in technology research advancement has been made between Harvard University and Deerfield Management, a healthcare investment firm. The alliance was established to speed the development of research-to-treatments that can help improve quality of life, specifically in the health and medical sciences. Lab1636, a newly launched company, has been created as a result of the partnership with an initial investment of $100 million. Deerfield Management has chosen Harvard University as the collaborating associate, admiring their commitment to scientific discovery in the health sciences and the encouraging environment the university provides researchers.Read More

Thanks to a five-year, $25 million grant, the largest given to the University of Kansas by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), several campus research projects have been funded to promote research development in high priority areas.
According to the NIH, "Genomic medicine is an emerging medical discipline that involves using genomic information about an individual as part of their clinical care (e.g. for diagnostic or therapeutic decision-making) and the health outcomes and policy implications of that clinical use."
In 2018, Duke University was awarded six grants from the National Human Genome Research Institute, a part of the NIH. Two of the grants will total about $9 million over the next 5 years. The first grant establishes the Duke Center for Applied Genomics & Precision Medicine. The second supports a Duke initiative to gather the family medical histories of low-income patients and assess their inherited risk of certain diseases.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards the University of Arizona roughly 200 grants totaling about $100 million each year. In 2018 the numbers increased to 266 grants totaling $125,091,695. A large portion of this NIH research funding was awarded to the over 250 scientists included in the University's BIO5 Institute. Here are the top 10 BIO5 NIH grant recipients:Read More

Ovarian cancer has a mortality rate of up to 70%. This is partly due to the fact that the disease is rarely detected in its early stages because the symptoms are vague and nonspecific. Currently, there is no accepted screening method for ovarian cancer. Due to the mortality rate, physicians often counsel women at high risk to have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a precaution. Jennifer Barton, director of University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute wants to change all this. With $863,000 from the United States Army and nearly $500,000 from the NIH in research funding, her plans for a falloposcope that will detect early-stage ovarian cancer is moving forward.Read More

The Dolby family is a longtime supporter of UC San Francisco. In 2015, the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Family Fund gifted UCSF’s Department of Psychiatry $20 million to support research on mood disorders and treatment programs. Now Dagmar Dolby and her son David are donating another $20 million to the university to launch the UCSF Dolby Family Center for Mood Disorders. Faculty and clinics under this new center’s umbrella will be housed in either of two state-of-the-art buildings under construction on the Mission Bay Campus: the Child, Teen and Family Center, which will also house the Department of Psychiatry, and the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Neurosciences Building.Read More

In the information age, cancer research is shifting from data generation to bioinformatics. This interdisciplinary field develops methods and software tools for understanding biological data. Bioinformatics combines computer science, statistics, mathematics, and engineering to analyze and interpret biological data. The Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) recently awarded W. Jim Zheng, Ph.D., of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) a five-year, $5.8 million grant to sort through information that could lead to cures for cancer.Read More
