BUH awards BRI $8 million to lead new asthma and allergic diseases cooperative research center
The NIH recently awarded BRI $8 million to lead a cooperative research center in Seattle to study the immune system's responses to allergens in the lungs. One in four people in the United States grapple with allergies and asthma. For years, BRI has had its sights set on helping these patients breathe easier. And our efforts just got a huge and welcome boost. Findings from the research will be applied to develop new treatments and therapies.

Syracuse, Cal State Fullerton awarded grant to enhance diversity in astrophysics
The five-year project is called 'Catching a New Wave: The CSUF-Syracuse Partnership for Inclusion of Underrepresented Groups in Gravitational-Wave Astronomy.' Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the project aims to increase the representation of Hispanic and Latino/a students, populations traditionally underrepresented in the study and teaching of astronomy and physics. Starting this fall, 'Catching a New Wave' will fund multiple three-year fellowships, enabling qualified CSUF students to transfer into Syracuse's Ph.D. program in physics.
