Humboldt Research Fellow Muhammad Asif Qureshi to conduct research at Mainz U Med Center
The goal of tumor immunologist Dr. Muhammad Asif Qureshi is to develop immune mediated approaches to combat cancers. He wants to find out specifically how different cancers can be slowed down or even reversed. He will be undertaking this research project in the coming two years with a research fellowship from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation as a member of the research group of Professor Detlef Schuppan at the Mainz University Medical Center.

Wilke Cohen Lyme Disease Project gets $3 million from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation
The Institute for Systems Biology has received a transformational, multi-year pledge from the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation to support the Wilke Cohen Lyme Disease Project. In addition to an initial $3.1 million in funding from Jeff and Liesl Wilke, Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos, and the Bay Area Lyme Foundation, the commitments total $6.1 million in pledges and cash. ISB researchers have discovered potential biomarkers, including a set of proteins in the blood known to be important for bone marrow regeneration and stability.

PROSPECT experiment will search for sterile neutrinos, thanks to DOE grant
Buoyed by a $3 million federal grant, a Yale University-led experiment will explore key questions about the tiny particles called neutrinos -- and potentially improve the way we monitor and safeguard nuclear reactors in the process. The US Department of Energy grant from the Office of High Energy Physics will be used to build a first-of-its-kind, short-distance detection device for the Precision Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment.

Alaska scientist receives $1.6 million award for vaccine research
A treatment credited with saving about nine million lives a year worldwide and bringing major human diseases including smallpox, tetanus, whooping cough and polio under some degree of control is said to have begun with a milkmaid, a boy, a cow and a doctor about two hundred years ago. Yet in all that time, the details of how the treatment actually works are still unclear. Dr. Andrea Ferrante, a University of Alaska Fairbanks scientist, hopes to change that.
