Duke: Access Over $1 Billion in R & D At This Event

Posted by Andrea Inks on Tue, Mar 26, 2019

Duke University is known as one of the largest research institutions in the nation. With over 1 billion in Total R & D expenditures it ranked 8th. Further, Duke spent over $950 million on life science research.

DukeFunding Facts:

−          Total R & D Expenditures: $1,126,924,000

−          Rank in Total R & D Expenditures: 8th

−          2017 Life Science R & D Expenditures: $950,245,000

−          2018 NIH Funding: $475,338,515


Interestingly, Duke received a $28 Million grant from the NIH to discover immunologic research directed at tackling major scientific problems that hinder the development of an effective HIV-1 vaccine. The vaccine strategy will be based on identifying and targeting novel HIV-1 vulnerabilities to B, T and NK cell immune responses and then using this information to design vaccines that will induce protective immunity at the time and location of HIV-1 transmission.

California to Spend $32M on Stem Cell Research Biobank

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Mar 20, 2013

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is a major funding agency for stem cell research in the Golden State. Since voters approved the establishment of the agency in 2004, the CIRM has spent billions on research and facilities with the aim of making California the stem cell capital of the US. Now, in a move to advance that research mission even further, the agency has announced awards of $32M to investigators and stem cell companies to create a biobank of diseased cell lines for the use of researchers around the world. Called the Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell (hiPSC) Initiative Awards, the project will generate and ensure the availability of high quality disease-specific hiPSC resources for disease modeling, target discovery and drug discovery and development for prevalent, genetically complex diseases
