NXT has been a pillar for a variety of upcoming projects and firms. From music to fashion, sports and beyond – NXT has been a hot topic. Now, the University of California Berkeley wants to fund research through two NXTs at the center of “biomedical successes”.
In An announcement Today on the University of UC Berkeley, the university shared that two Nobel-prize-winning inventions will be bid. NXT will include internal forms and correspondence centered around research, which led to two important biomedical advances.
One of the two NXT titled ‘The Fourth Pillar’ Is molded on the foundation And will be listed in a 24-hour auction on Wednesday, June 2. NXT represents an invention around cancer immunotherapy developed by Jim Ellison of UC Berkeley. Allison’s discovery shared the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. The name is inspired by immunotherapy, which has become the ‘fourth pillar’ of cancer therapy, along with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
The second NXT, which is yet to be molded, will recognize Jennifer Dudna of UC Berkeley for Nobel in their 2020 chemistry, which centers around CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing. The informational release stated that the university would continue to hold relevant patents surrounding the research.

Proceeds from the foundation’s auction will go towards funding innovation research and education, a portion of which will go exclusively to UC Berkeley’s Blockchain Innovation Hub and the student group, ‘Blockchain at Berkeley’. The university also engages in blockchain by other means, such as the Berkeley Blockchain Accelerator, a blockchain-focused curriculum and partnerships with industry executives.
The University’s Chief Innovation and Entrepreneurship Officer Rich Lyon said the release “represents something spectacular”. Leon said that “there are people who recognize and care about the symbols of great science, and even though they never want to resell NXT, they want to own it and they want the resources back to Berkeley Go, where the original research is behind these Nobel. Awards to support further research. “
The university will also take a portion of the proceeds and allocate them for carbon offsets to eliminate the energy costs of NXT mining.
This is an unknown area for the university here, as no such precedent has been set on NXT. However, for the Lyons and Berkeley team, there seems to be little attraction in that sense; “People donate to us all the time because they care about the institute and science, so here is a way for someone to invest in the institute a little differently”, Lyons said.
