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.

Plants are very finicky about when they decide to bloom. In their constant quest for sunlight, they put all their energy into growing upward and only produce fruits and flowers if they are in full sunlight. In high-density orchards, this imposes a limit on crop yield in a given space. One of the largest goals in agriculture today is to increase crop yield, as we saw earlier this year with the UIUC researchers seeking to optimize photosynthesis. Now researchers from the University of Wisconsin, Madison are trying their hand at increasing agricultural production by removing plants’ inhibitions to flower.

Researchers at the University of Arizona recently received a $1.3 million new life science grant from the National Institutes of Health. The research funding was awarded in April of 2014 by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, a division of the National Institutes of Health. The project, entitled “The Cost-Effectiveness of School-Based Supervised Asthma Therapy” is being led by Dr. Lynn Gerald. Dr. Gerald is the Canyon Ranch Endowed Chair, Professor, and a Scientist in the Department of Health Promotion Sciences in the College of Public Health at the University of Arizona. In addition to this project receiving NIH research funding, her research interests include clinical, behavioral and epidemiological research in asthma, COPD, and tuberculosis.

The heat of summer brings us out into the water and directly in the line of fire of the sun’s UV radiation. Many of us grumble about applying sunscreen and wish it could be simply applied once for the whole summer. Thanks to a $1 million grant from the National Cancer Institute, a research team at the University of Cincinnati is developing a topical cream that makes this fantasy possible by taking UV protection to a new level.
