Register Today! UNM to Host NIH’s Annual SBIR/STTR Conference, October 21-23, 2014
UNM HSC has been chosen to host this year’s National Institutes of Health Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Conference on October 21 – 23, 2014. The theme for the Conference is “Land of Achievement: Extending the Reach of Science.” This is the 16th annual NIH SBIR/STTR conference, but only the third to be held outside of NIH’s headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland.

The conference helps small businesses and researchers in the health sciences learn more about the approximate $700 million dollars of annual funding available from NIH to forge academic/business partnerships for advancing recently developed biotechnology. Attendees discover how to successfully submit an application; tips for approaching partners and investors; the types of technical assistance programs NIH offers to awardees; and have the chance to discuss specific questions with NIH SBIR and STTR subject-matter experts.

For more information and to register to attend the conference, please visit www.SBIR2014.com. Discounted early bird registration ends August 22nd!

CTSC Research Vignette: Extending the Reach of Stroke Care from Discovery to Tech Transfer
“At this point in my career, I think, ‘So what if we publish ten more papers?’” said Jim Liu, PhD, a professor and associate dean for research at the University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy. More importantly, “How can we turn this knowledge into something tangible, something that will directly improve peoples’ lives?”

Liu’s research interests range from radiation biochemistry, carcinogenesis, oxygenation in the brain and brain injury due to stroke. He is also director of the UNM Biomedical Research and Integrative Neuroimaging (BRaIN) Center, a state-of-the-art imaging facility for investigating stroke, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy and other neurological diseases. Research from his lab has resulted in over 160 scientific publications.

Liu’s focus has shifted in the last few years to learn how to more effectively transform discoveries from the lab into diagnostic devices and compounds that can be used in the clinic to help patients. Read the full vignette here.

Investigator & Staff Profiles
CTSC Investigator of the Month
Kathy Lopez-Bushnell, APRN, Ed, MPH, MSN
As the director of Nursing Research at UNM Hospital, Kathy Lopez-Bushnell is involved with multiple studies related to the nursing workforce and patient care. Over the last fifteen years, she has initiated many efforts to improve quality of care through evidence-based practices and encourages nurses at the hospital to become engaged in research in their practice areas. One area of particular interest is enhancing nurses’ roles as educators to improve patient health outcomes. “Nurses can have a huge impact as proactive educators in a hospital setting,” she said. Under Lopez-Bushnell’s leadership, the Nursing Research division also directs a successful pipeline program, the Youth Empowerment Project, which provides high school students with hands-on learning opportunities in nursing and health careers.
