UK gets $5.6M grant from NIH
There are currently no medications for treating thoracic aortic aneurysms or keeping them from growing. Patients typically have to take a wait-and-see approach. However, now a team at the UK College of Medicine is set to study what causes the aneurysms thanks to a $5.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The hope is that by studying the causes of the aneurysms, researchers can discover a treatment for the condition.

COVID-19's effect on the home office
When COVID-19 forced a lot of employees to set up office at home, it became clear that many of them did not have the infrastructure at home that was needed to work efficiently. Commercial IT company C3 Tech, located in southern Indiana, was busy helping with the tech needs of those employees.
Render Capital launches First Dollar Program
In order to provide early-stage capital to Louisville Black and Brown entrepreneurs, Render Capital has launched the First Dollar program. Through the program, Render Capital offers grants to entrepreneurs that lack access because of historic and systemic inequality.
