University of Arizona Study Finds Climate Change May Threaten Food Supply

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Fri, Oct 07, 2016

A study by University of Arizona ecologists explored how global warming could jeopardize our food supply. In their report, Alice Cang and John Wiens, professor at UA’s Department of Evolutionary Biology, conclude that grasses across the globe may be unable to keep pace with climate change. This will put some of the world's most critical food sources such as wheat, corn, and rice in danger.

UIC: New Treatment Option For Type 1 Diabetes Brings Research Funding

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Aug 15, 2016

The University of Illinois at Chicago received a two-year, $475,000 grant to study a new treatment for type 1 diabetes that might help protect the pancreas. This promising new treatment would involve using two protein molecules to reduce the damage caused by the body’s autoimmune response.  The research led by Dr. Bellur S. Prabhaker, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at UIC, could eventually free many diabetes patients from the rigors of daily insulin injections.

Dr. Abraham Badu-Tawiah, assistant professor at Ohio State University, is out to revolutionize the world of diagnostic testing. By making paper strips that can detect malaria and well as certain types of cancers, he hopes to make testing more practical and affordable. People would be able to simply apply a drop of blood to the paper test strip at home, much like diabetics do when testing their blood sugar, and then mail it to the laboratory. This new method would make medical diagnostics much more accessible for those who can't easily get to a lab for testing.
