LSUHSC awarded $12 million for cancer, infectious diseases research & research pipeline
Date:10/20/2010

preventing infection altogether or the development of the severe and often fatal form of the disease.
  • Tuberculosis a project determining where changing the ability of immune system cells to produce substances like nitric oxide or arginase will stop the development of the disease as well as its spread by killing the tuberculosis bacteria. Other research includes working on novel therapies for B cell lymphomas through increased understanding of the components of the environment that facilitates their growth as well as preventing the herpes virus from blocking the body's immune response which would otherwise kill the virus. "In addition to the value of research programs like this in terms of lives and money saved as well as improved quality of life, the LSUHSC research enterprise is a robust economic engine, attracting millions of outside dollars to the city and state that also support jobs in a highly desirable industry," said Dr. Steve Nelson, Dean of LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans' School of Medicine.

    Research provides high-skill, high-wage jobs and has been considered one of the most powerful drivers of the economic prosperity of communities. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 17 of the 30 fastest growing occupations in the US are related to medical research or health care. According to BIO, in Louisiana 1 life sciences job equals 5.19 jobs produced indirectly within the local economy.

    "LSUHSC faculty leveraged our initial COBRE grant to secure $54 million in external funding, create 66 new jobs, including 25 faculty and 30 laboratory staff positions, publish 153 research papers in the scientific literature, and obtain a two-year American Recovery and Reinvestment Act award for $687,752 to support research on new immunotherapies for cancer patients," says Dr. Augusto Ochoa, Professor and Director of the LSUHC Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center who is also the principal investigator on the grant.
