Research and Innovation to Translate Basic Science into Product Candidates
The Institute for Applied Life Sciences (IALS) translates fundamental research into innovative product candidates, technologies, and services that deliver benefits to human health and well-being. Our specific objectives are to: (1) Become a catalyst and resource for ‘applied’ and ‘translational’ R&D activities; (2) Establish industry engagement models and industry collaborations; (3) Contribute to workforce development; and (4) Participate to innovation & entrepreneurship culture on campus.
Bittman receives $2.4 million, 4-year NIH grant to support circadian rhythm research
The 4-year, $2.4 million NIH grant will allow Eric Bittman (M2M) to determine the sequence of duper, a mutation that speeds up the circadian clock and dramatically reduces jet lag by affecting the function of a master pacemaker in the hypothalamus. Millions of Americans work shift schedules, and most of us have experienced the disorientation that occurs when we travel across multiple time zones.
Comprising 250 faculty from 7 colleges and 29 departments, conduct research and engage in hands-on education.
