U Georgia Receives $2.3M to Study Stress’s Effect on Children’s Immune System

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Oct 30, 2018

According to the Mayo Clinic, stress can cause a number of health issues including high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.  A new University of Georgia, Athens (UGA) study is being funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to show how stress affects children’s immune system. This $2.3 million, Director’s New Innovator Award, will allow researchers to correlate acute stress with how children’s immune systems respond to vaccination.

Indoor Farming Research Brings $5M USDA Grant to UGA

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Oct 03, 2018

In 1980 the U.S. population was 226.5 million; by 2015 it reached just over 321 million. By 2050 the U.S. population is projected to reach nearly 400 million. That’s roughly 80 million more mouths to feed. The USDA recently awarded the University of Georgia, Athens $5,000,000 to conduct research into making indoor farming a more feasible solution to this looming crisis. At present operating an indoor farm is comparatively costly. Up to 60% of the cost goes to energy and half of that is for lighting.

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:

UIUC "Clever Chemistry" Science Invention Wins Innovation Research Grants

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, Mar 20, 2012

We live in an age obsessed with cleanliness.  Hand washing is at an all-time high, as are sanitizers of every sort.  It's not enough that our municiple water is filtered at a plant somewhere before coming into our homes, no, we need to filter it once more before it's safe to drink.  Yet even that level of screening for contaminants may not be enough. For people living near air force bases there's an additional threat, and it's caused by a specific chemical used in rocket fuel: ammonium perchlorate. Perchlorate has a tendency to end up in the water supply near these bases, and traditional water filters don't do the trick when it comes to screening out the toxin.  Fortunately, two entrepreneurial materials science researchers at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, have come up with a novel filtering material that does screen perchlorate, and they are well on their way to commercializing their invention, thanks to two federal small business awards and the support of the pro-business University of Illinois Research Park.
