What would you do if you were unable to find a veterinarian for your beloved dog or cat if they became sick? People who serve as caretakers for animals love their pets. The state of Arizona, however, has a shortage of trained veterinarians due to the fact that there are no animal medicine programs in the state. One university seeks to address this problem with the state’s first program in veterinary medicine at the University of Arizona.

Malaria is a devastating global health problem in many parts of the world, having caused nearly 215 million infections internationally and 655,000 deaths per year. Most people know malaria is transmitted by the bite of an infective mosquito: the female Anopheles mosquito in particular. There are other less common methods of transmission as well, including blood transfusion, organ transplantation, needle sharing and when a mother gives birth to a child.

Last year, we reported on the shocking discovery of bacteria that could create an electric current by trading electrons with each other and their surroundings. The pair of microbiologists at the University of Minnesota who led the research speculated that there was much to learn and understand about these “electric bacteria.” Now research from the University of Southern California proves them right with a breakthrough realization about a special type of electric bacteria that extends electric wires from its body.

Insulin is a vital hormone that plays a major role in the metabolism: without insulin, humans would not be able to break down carbohydrates or digest food for energy. Insulin lowers blood glucose levels, stores excess glucose as glycogen and reduces glucose production in the liver. Many people, however, have trouble using insulin effectively. Forms of insulin resistance can lead to pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, as well as other serious health problems.

Bioengineers across the country are working on developing the best biofuel technology, with the goal of producing the most fuel yield from a given biomass. This May, for instance, we reported on a MSU bioresearcher who worked on optimizing the process of creating biodiesel. A research team at the University of California, Riverside has recently come up with the most effective method yet.

Lab suppliers working to find markets where life science professionals keep their well funded research labs and advanced research facilities stocked with life science products may want to take a closer look at the University of Arizona, Tucson. This nationally renowned research university is home to over 57 shared research facilities and a wealth of research funding. The University of Arizona, Tucson website states, “This extensive offering provides faculty, scientists and students with access to not only to the latest instrumentation, but also to experienced staff with expertise in designing and conducting experiments and analyzing data.”

UCSD Bioscientists Erase and Restore Memories

Research on memory is very delicate business. The prospect of increasing memory capacity and restoring lost recollections sounds more like magic than science. Despite this, a group of researchers from the University of California, San Diego has found a way to stimulate neural networks in rats in order to erase and restore their memories.

Part of a new $37.5 million life science grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has been made available to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles. The research funding will be shared with fellow science researchers at the University of Pennsylvania to build and test wireless implantable devices that can detect memory deficits caused by injury and try to restore normal function. The purpose of these devices is to help improve brain function for service members, veterans and others after traumatic brain injury or disease.
