MSU Researchers Find 2nd Binding Site for Pyrethroid Repellants

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jul 08, 2013

Science researchers at Michigan State University recently published a study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that says they have discovered a second molecular door that can be used in creating mosquito repellant. Scientists long believed that there was only one molecular gateway in targeting disease-carrying mosquitoes, but this door is coming to a close. Pyrethroid insecticides have been used for years and work so well as an insecticide that the World Health Organiation uses them with the mosquito nets they distribute around the world.

Thomas Jefferson University Study Finds Breast Cancer Molecule

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Jul 03, 2013

Scientists at Thomas Jefferson University have discovered a gene that has a powerful effect on the development of breast cancer tumors in mice. The gene EYA1 was proved to be overexpressed in luminal B, a genetic breast cancer subtype. The researchers also found that too much activity in EYA1 increases the presence of breast cancer stem cells that allow the body to resist cancer therapy and lead to a low survival rate.

North Carolina Study Compare Human and Canine Lymphomas

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Jun 26, 2013

Research scientists at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, North Carolina State and Duke University recently conducted a study researching canine and human B-cell lymphoma by comparing the similarities and differences between the two species. The study is one of the first of its kind and was published on June 19, 2013 in the online journal Cancer Research.

Washington University Plans New Medical Research Building

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jun 24, 2013

Lab suppliers trying to market university lab equipment and life science solutions may be interested in increasing scientific product sales at Washington University, given the school’s announcement that it will build a new medical building. It’s expected that the $75 million research building will break ground this summer and possibly be completed by June 2015. The facility will be dedicated to interdisciplinary research on the most complicated problems in human biology. Some of the life science disciplines already slated to be located within the building include genetics, genomics and regenerative biology. The facility will also be LEED certified.

UW-Madison Bioengineer Develops Solar Contact Lenses

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 13, 2013

While solar power is one of the leading sources of renewable energy available to us, it’s easy to argue that we have a long way to go in terms of directly harnessing the sun’s rays. For instance, most solar devices in our daily lives must be hooked up to a battery or capacitor in order to store the energy they derive. A novel invention from the University of Wisconsin, Madison solves this issue by keeping solar energy readily available in the mechanism itself. But most impressive of all is that the mechanism itself is a pair of solar contact lenses.

WSU Team Tests Mycofiltration Biotechnology to Purify Water Supply

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, May 24, 2013

Mycology is the branch of biology devoted to the study of fungi (mushrooms), which, we're increasingly learning, are truly astonishing in what they can do. With the support of a grant from the EPA, a team of Washington State University scientists is developing a mycofiltration system to purify storm water of bacteria before it re-enters the urban water supply. Professor Marc Beutel is an environmental engineer who has joined forces with renowned mycologist Paul Stamets of Fungi Perfecti, a research laboratory and retail company also in Washington State. Together they have completed the first phase of a study titled Mycofiltration Biotechnology for Pathogen Management, wherein they have successfully used fungi to create a "living net" to filter effluent bacteria. The project was funded by an EPA Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award.

Regenerative Biology Scientists at USC Learn From Alligator Teeth

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, May 17, 2013

As humans, our bodies have the ability to naturally regenerate both skin and hair, but we only get two sets of teeth, and that's one set more than many other mammals. Reptiles and fish, on the other hand, have the ability to regrow teeth throughout their lifetime. Though we have guessed that specialized stem cells are involved, the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind tooth renewal in these animals have not been well understood until now. A research team at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, led by Dr. Cheng-Ming Chuong, has recently published an article in PNAS detailing their study into the regrowth of alligator teeth. They chose a crocodilian model because the dentition is well-organized and implanted in sockets of the dental bone, similar to that of mammals (if more extensive) yet with the capacity for renewal. Contributors to the research included colleagues in Georgia, China, and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, who presumably provided the live research subjects.
