University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine Researchers Given $4 million NIH grant

Posted by Gloria Beverage on Fri, Sep 21, 2018

Two USC stem cell researchers have received a combined $4 million from the National Institute of Health (NIH). Dr. Qi-Long Ying will oversee a $1.32 million grant focusing on how two specific proteins influence whether stem cells self-renew to produce additional stem cells or become more specialized cell types. A $2.82 million grant awarded to Dr. Neil Segil will explore why humans are unable to recover from hearing loss, while birds and reptiles can.

University of Illinois Receives $2M for Herpes Virus Research

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Aug 10, 2018

According to John Hopkins Medicine, 50 to 80 percent of U.S. adults have the oral herpes virus and many don’t know it. Most commonly associated with “cold sores” or “fever blister” the herpes virus can cause other, more serious symptoms as well. These include severe flu-like symptoms, swollen lymph nodes and headaches. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently awarded Afsar Naqvi, assistant professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago’s College of Dentistry, a five year, $2 million grant to study this wide spread and yet often misdiagnosed disease.

$1 Billion Medical Building Under Construction at Boston’s Longwood Medical

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Apr 23, 2018

Longwood Medical Area in Boston is one of the densest medical communities in the country. The 213-acre neighborhood houses four teaching hospitals, a medical school, and a diabetes research center and clinic. Five of those institutions — Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Joslin Diabetes Center are affiliated with Harvard Medical School, which relies on them to train its students. In September 2017, Boston Children’s Hospital began construction of a $1 billion state-of-the-art clinical building.

University of Illinois Research News: Synthetic Cannabiniod Reduces Sleep Apnea

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Jan 04, 2018

When obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was listed as a contributing factor in the death of actress Carrie Fisher, it brought the condition into the spotlight. Until the news, many people considered sleep apnea to be just a bothersome form of snoring. However, with OSA, breathing is actually interrupted for a few seconds or even several minutes. According to the American sleep apnea association, 38,000 people die annually from heart disease directly complicated by sleep apnea. Now researchers at the University of Illinois, Chicago (UIC) believe they have found the first medication that reduces the effects of OSA, and it's  based on a molecule found in the cannabis plant.

Texas A&M: $10M in Research Funding to Study Effects of Harvey

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Oct 13, 2017

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a group of researchers will study the effects of the pollution stirred up by the flooding. Scientists from Texas A&M, College Station will conduct four environmental research projects thanks to a five year, $10 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program. All four projects will stem from a case study of Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that examines the chemicals found within the sediment. These studies are designed to improve our understanding of the complexities of hazardous chemicals exposure and its negative impacts on health.

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.

MSU Research Shows Fish Oil Can Increase Immunity

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 11, 2013

By this point, most Americans are familiar with the gelatinous yellow pill harked by many as a critically necessary supplement. Fish oil pills, packed with omega-3 fatty acids, are sold in many grocery stores and can be found in even more households nationwide. At Michigan State University, bioresearchers are delving deeper into the effects of fish oil on the body. What they have found may sound a little surprising at first: fish oil can increase immunity in people with certain health conditions.
