Dundee Research Centre Granted £24 million

The University of Dundee’s research centre for the treatment of human diseases has been granted £24 million to continue its work over the next five years, reports Life Sciences Scotland.

The grant has come thanks to the taxpayer, something the Chief Executive of the Medical Research Council Sir John Savill believes to be fantastic. He said “It is important for people to know how crucial their own money has been in uncovering health improvements” such as the MRI scanner.

The funding will allow for the research facility to add a number of new scientists to the team. The work undertaken at the research centre has is part of a worldwide effort, that through various grants has been able to support over 160 staff in over 25 countries. The MRC is dedicated to funding some of the leading medical research in the world through reinvestment of taxpayer’s money.

EU Research Budget Increase Good News For UK

Timeshighereducation.com has reported a 23% increase in the EU’s research budget, meaning that €1.6 billion is available for frontier research.

Overall funding for the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme has risen to €7 billion (£6.4 billion), the European Research Council (ERC) being the main benefactor, with the increase in their budget. Jerzy Langer, professor at the Polish Academy of Sciences, believes the UK are the main winners in investment, but praises politicians for listening to scientists and granting money without guaranteed returns.

Richard Jones, pro vice-chancellor of research and development at Sheffield University, believes this “is good news for us in an environment in which our own research councils’ funding is being squeezed.” Despite the funding having no real guarantees the ERC funding has traditionally led to good results; such as the winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2010, Konstantin Novoselov of the University of Manchester, being able to conduct his research thanks to an ERC grant. Around €80 billion in GDP growth and 450,000 jobs are expected to be created in the next 15 years thanks to the increased funds.

Anti-Aging Drug Discovered

research team has discovered a new pharmaceutical on Easter Island which could be used to reverse the effects of aging, the Telegraph reports.

A chemical discovered in the soil of the island has been used to create Rapamycin which, when tested on children suffering from Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), a disease which prematurely ages children, helped clear their cells of defects.

Researchers are already looking into the possibility of providing the drug to a wider market, after similarities between normal aging and HGPS were discovered. Dimitri Krainc, an author of the study into Rapamycin, believes a small dose of the drug can “extend the health and life span of our cells and organs”.

Developing a New Drug Testing Platform – UK

Pills, syringe and thermometer.As reported by The Engineer, scientists in the UK are in the process of developing a new drug testing platform which promises to bring long-term benefits to the pharmaceutical industry.

The platform uses artificial bilayer lipid membranes to evaluate the effectiveness of drugs on ion channels. It is being developed by a team from Southampton University and Birkbeck College, University of London. It is hoped the new platform with provide a more efficient way of testing potential new drugs. The platform is being developed in the new Mountbatten Building at Southampton University.

According to Dr Maurits de Planque of Southampton University, ion channels play a pivotal role in a wide variety of physiological processes and diseases and are consequently of considerable interest to the pharmaceutical industry. It is for this reason that the Southampton group has teamed up with the Birkbeck group, led by Prof Bonnie Ann Wallace, who are experts in ion channel structure and function.

‘By putting the ion channel into an artificial membrane, we only have one type of channel, no living cells and a relatively inexpensive method for testing for several of these types of channels at once,’ said de Planque.

This project is expected to take just over three years to complete and it is hoped it will bring benefits to both the public and private sector industries, as well as spur on new research for the treatment of diseases such as chronic pain, epilepsy and certain types of heart disease.
