Research News: University of Georgia Develops New Model for Stroke Studies

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 27, 2017

According to the CDC, Every 4 minutes, someone in the United States dies of stroke. That’s 140,000 Americans killed by stokes each year. Stroke is a leading cause of serious long-term disability and costs the United States an estimated $34 billion each year.

To help find new treatment options for the nearly 800,000 people who have stokes each year, a team of scientists at The University of Georgia, Athens have developed a new livestock model  that could speed stroke discoveries by providing a better, more predictive transnational model. 

Mice are out and pigs are in:

New Clinical Research Center Opens at Rutgers

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Nov 20, 2017

The University of Rutgers recently opened the Adult Clinical Research Center on its New Brunswick campus. The Adult Clinical Research Center (CRC) is part of the Robert Wood Johnson University school of Medicine. The center outgrew its previous location on the third floor of the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and now occupies the 8th floor of the new East Tower medical building adjacent to the Hospital. This 11,646 square foot facility will make it possible for the CRC to double the number of studies they conduct over the next three years. Currently, there are 36 active and 20 pending clinical trials.

University of Georgia Receives $1.5 in Research Funding to Develop Brain Glue

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Nov 07, 2017

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 153 people in the U.S. die from injuries that include a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every day. Currently, there are no effective treatments for moderate-to-severe TBIs. So those who do survive their injuries often live the rest of their lives with impaired thinking, memory, or movement. TBIs can also lead to personality and emotional changes. However, research being conducted at the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) might lead to a treatment that could significantly improve the prognosis of those with brain injuries. This promising research into a glue-like substance for the brain recently won a $1.5 NIH grant award.

Rockefeller U: NIH Research Funding May Lead to “Universal” Flu Vaccine

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Nov 01, 2017

Most people don’t think of the flu as being life threatening. However, 36,000 American’s die because of the flu virus each year. Now, with the help of millions in NIH research funding, scientists at Rockefeller University have devised a strategy for improving existing flu vaccines. The new vaccines will better protect people against these ever-mutating viruses. And this new strategy might eliminate the need for annual flu shots, while at the same time saving thousands of lives.

Research Funding for University of Georgia Includes Over $37M from NIH

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Aug 28, 2017

Total research and development expenditures for the University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) reached an all-time high of $458 million. This is a 31% increase in R&D expenditures since the 2013 fiscal year. Over the past three years, externally funded research activities have climbed by 37% to reach $198 million in fiscal 2017. These expenditures are funded in part by federal grants and contracts. For example: in the first seven months of 2017 the University received 96 research project grants from the National Institute of Health (NIH). They total $37.2 million. The rest of their research funding comes from foundations, corporations, as well as the state of Georgia.

Fred Hutch: $7M in Research Funding for Study of Second Primary Breast Cancer

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Aug 16, 2017

Between 3 to 20 percent of women with breast cancer will develop another primary cancer tumor in the opposite breast within ten years of the first diagnosis. Though previous studies have identified some environmental, genetic, and treatment-related risk factors for contralateral breast cancer, scientists still don’t fully understand what causes these second primary cancers.

Fred Hutch Receives $6.4M in Research Funding to Improve Heart Health of Cancer Survivors

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Tue, Jun 27, 2017

 In March, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) approved a $3.7 million, five-year grant to extend Dr. Eric Chow’s research into improving treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in childhood cancer survivors. Dr. Chow is a clinical researcher, epidemiologist, and pediatric oncologist at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. This is one of two research grants to be awarded to Dr. Chow by the National Cancer Institute. The NCI also chose to extend Dr. Chow’s study of the long-term efficacy of a medication meant to minimize or prevent heart injury in pediatric patients going through chemotherapy. This $2.7 million in research funding will allow for four more years of studies regarding the use of dexrazoxane in pediatric cancer patients.

Michigan State: $1.5M in Research Funding for Electric Catfish Study

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Jun 14, 2017

Electric catfish is the common name for the catfish that belong to the Malapteruridae family.  Several species of this family can produce an electric shock of up to 350 volts. To do this the use electric organ known as electroplaques. This electrogenic organ is derived from anterior body musculature and lines the body cavity. Electric catfish are found in tropical Africa and the Nile River. Some species feed primarily on other fish, incapacitating their prey with electric discharges. However the majority are generalist bottom feeders. The largest species can grow to up four feet long.
