Green Chemistry Synthesis Uses Mechanics Rather Than Solvents

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Apr 10, 2013

Green chemistry refers to a number of processes and practices that minimize the toxic or hazardous effects of chemicals in the environment, the lab, or the manufacturing plant. One way to go green is to cut down on the use of dangerous solvents in reactive processes, thereby reducing waste and improving lab safety. Though sometimes a less toxic catalyst or reagent can be employed from the outset, reused, or made inert eventually, another way to get a chemical reaction is to apply physical force instead. Called mechanochemistry, it involves the application of mechanical engineering to chemistry. Instead of adding a solvent, agitation is used to achieve chemical synthesis.

Life Science Sales Market Thriving in North Carolina

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Mar 11, 2013

North Carolina appears to have a rich life science sales market when taking into account recent life science funding statistics. North Carolina Biotechnology Center in particular gave $2.9 million in loans and grants to life science companies and researchers during this second fiscal quarter. North Carolina Biotechnology Center has been funding life science researchers and startups since 1984, helping to make North Carolina the third largest biotechnology cluster in the United States. Ten different programs received awards based on entrepreneurship, technology and education. North Carolina now hosts over 500 life science companies and 58,000 employees who earn an average salary greater than $78,000.

UNC-Chapel Hill Starts Construction on Brain Injury Research Center

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Feb 26, 2013

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently began construction on a new facility that will be used for research on brain injuries, according to Vice President for Facilities Planning and Development Ray Lafrenaye and a Chapelboro.com news article. The facility will be named the Comprehensive Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center and is being constructed in the former University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Border’s bookstore building on Fordham Boulevard. The center is planning on opening for operations in the next few months.

Philadelphia Science Researchers Say Blood Plasma Is Thicker Than Water

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Feb 25, 2013

Science researchers at the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study that may help them reach a better understanding of health conditions such as arteriosclerosis, aneurysms and thrombosis. The results of the study are making the news as one of a number of compelling current science events at the University of Pennsylvania. According to science researchers, blood plasma is thicker and more elastic than water. Depending on how much pressure blood plasma is under, it flows differently under different circumstances, meaning that blood plasma influences how blood flows more concretely than scientists thought in the past.

Gorgeous New Building for Medical Students Opens at Duke University

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Feb 18, 2013

Medical students at Duke University finally have their own home after being spread out over the medical campus for 73 years. Filled with natural light from the glass walls and study nooks for doing work, this building is a gorgeous feat of architecture. It has been named the Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center for Health Education, and it’s located right in the middle of the medical campus. The center provides a space for medical students who used to have to study in the basement of Duke Medicine’s Purple Zone, the Davison Building and every so often, spaces rented for large gatherings.
