Baltimore Researchers Identify Dangerous E. coli Strains

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Mar 02, 2016

Escherichia coli, most commonly referred to as E. coli, is a common form of bacteria found in the environment, foods, and the intestinal tracts of animals. E. coli is very diverse, with some strains being harmless while others can cause a wide range of illnesses, including urinary tract infections, diarrhea, and pneumonia. With hundreds of thousands of deaths caused by E. coli each year, scientists have been diligently working to better understand this bacteria.

$8.5M in Life Science Funding Awarded to UNC Chapel Hill

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Nov 01, 2013

“Despite the clinical success of antiretroviral therapy (ART), more people contract human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection daily than initiate ART,” states the NIH RePORTER abstract for a new study receiving funding from the NIH. “The difficulties of lifelong ART - particularly in the developing world - make the eradication of HIV imperative. But clearance of a retroviral infection for patients on ART is a herculean task. While much is known about HIV persistence despite ART, many puzzles remain. New tools to address latent infection must replace the paradigms and models used to develop ART.”
