Bayer donates equipment to Children's Hospital, Oakland for infectious disease research

in only very small amounts," Moe said. "We're very pleased to benefit from the generosity of Bayer BP. The gift is a significant enhancement to the CIVD and will benefit the research of many CHORI scientists."

The CIVD at CHORI includes interactive laboratories and office spaces, as well as specialized, shared facilities including a Biological Safety Level-3 (BL-3) facility, which represents one of the highest national safety and security standards for scientists to conduct molecular, cellular and clinical studies into some of the most serious infectious diseases, particularly in children, for which no vaccines are available. For those vaccines that are available, CHORI scientists will be using these specialized facilities to understand and improve how vaccines work.

"As a member of the scientific community and the Berkeley community, Bayer BP is committed to making a difference where it matters -- with our patient communities and in the Bay Area," said Konstantin Konstantinov, Director, Process and Technology, Bayer Biological Products. "It is our hope that the donated equipment will help improve the research capabilities at CHORI and lead to exciting and innovative discoveries in the immunology of infectious disease."

CHORI is ranked 6th among the country's children's hospital research centers for National Institutes of Health funding. With 37 principal investigators and an annual budget of $47 million, CHORI has achieved significant research advancements in vaccine development, pediatric obesity, nutrition, cancers, sickle cell disease, AIDS/HIV, hemophilia and cystic fibrosis.
