The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) recently awarded the Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG) at the University of Cincinnati $8 Million in research funding. This award will be disbursed annually in $1.6 Million increments over the next five years, which will take CEG into it’s 30th year of continual NIEHS funding.

University of Cincinnati’s Medical Campus Master Plan entered its second phase with the start of construction on two new buildings. The Health Sciences Building will become the new home of the University’s College of Allied Health. The other new building will house the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute. The construction is part of a $480 million project aimed to keep the university on the cutting edge of education, medical care, and research.

Although people expect to go to the hospital to be treated for their illnesses, sometimes patients can acquire fungal infections during treatment that can make them even sicker. The fungus Candida albicans is a common hospital-acquired fungus that can get into the bloodstream and vital organs, leading to a mortality rate of up to 75% of infected patients. Researchers at The Ohio State University in Columbus have found a potential approach to fight these infections.Read More
A pioneering new study at Ohio State University found a link between chronic stress and short-term memory issues. In the study, mice were subjected to repeated visits from an aggressive, larger intruder mouse. Researchers found that the mice repeatedly exposed to the intruder had more difficulty recalling where the escape hole was in a maze they’d mastered prior to the stressful period, compared to mice that had not been stressed.

Though it has been over five hundred years since the Black Death devastated the population of Europe, life science researchers today believe that we can learn something about HIV infections by studying the genetic aftermath of the plague.
Developing a novel cancer-busting drug is only useful if it can actually be administered to the affected area. We saw last July how UIUC researchers are sneaking drugs past the immune system so they don’t get destroyed in transit. Taking the next step, researchers at The Ohio State University are developing a “Trojan horse” that allows drugs to successfully invade leukemia cells.Read More
If you got behind the wheel of your vehicle to find that the fuel gauge had mysteriously disappeared, would you still drive it? University of Cincinnati researchers are studying a creative approach to fighting tumors that involves disabling cancer cells' energy resource sensors to stop them from proliferating.Read More
We’ve seen bacteria eat chlorine and even consume toxic byproducts of biodiesel plants, but researchers at The Ohio State University have found a new strain that takes the cake. These extremophiles literally eat biocide designed to kill them.Read More
