Recent research at the University of Colorado, Boulder has focused on the effects that human gut microbes have on stress. One study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in 2017 found that mice injected with the bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae developed higher levels of an enzyme linked to serotonin production in the brain.Read More

The University of Pittsburgh has opened a brand new, technologically advanced surgical center that will make use of recent discoveries in robotics and machine learning. The Collaborative Research Education and Technology Enhancement in Surgery Initiative (CREATES) aims to support Pittsburgh’s expanding hub of life science innovation, research and development. The $3-million dollar, 10,000 square foot project will bring scientists from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center together with researchers from Carnegie Mellon, and is looking to establish up to six partnerships with US-based robotic firms.Read More

UC Berkeley neuroscientists are creating technology that can fool the brain into thinking it has felt, seen or sensed something that it has not. The goal is to read neural activity and learn which sets of neurons to activate in order to simulate the pattern of an actual brain response. This technique might someday be used to replace lost sensations after peripheral nerve damage or control a prosthetic limb.Read More
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) recently awarded the Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG) at the University of Cincinnati $8 Million in research funding. This award will be disbursed annually in $1.6 Million increments over the next five years, which will take CEG into it’s 30th year of continual NIEHS funding.

Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley are one of many groups benefiting from funding from the BRAIN Initiative, founded by President Obama in 2013. The Berkeley research team, in partnership with a team from the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, have received $65.5 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to catalog all the cells of a mouse brain with the goal of using this catalog to later classify all cells in the human brain.

With trauma patients just a few minutes delay in treatment can make the difference between life and death. However South Chicago has been without a trauma center since 1991. This means trauma patients have to be transported nearly 10 miles away to receive the specialized services they need. The $270 million makeover happening at the University of Chicago's Hyde Park campus seeks to resolve that issue. The new $39 million adult emergency department that opened at U Chicago Medicine in December will become an integrated trauma care facility within the next few months.Read More
