Ohio State Researcher Finds Gene-Based Approach to Fight Fungus

Posted by BCI Staff on Wed, Aug 31, 2016

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.

Ohio State Researchers Link Stress to Memory Loss

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, May 25, 2016

 

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.

Learning From the Black Death at Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Mar 10, 2016

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.

OSU Bioresearchers Develop Trojan Horse for Leukemia Cells

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 25, 2016

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.

Cincinnati Research Targets Cancer's Fuel Gauge

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jan 14, 2016

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.

The Ohio State University Finds Bacteria That Eat Biocides, Produce Natural Gas

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Dec 31, 2015

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.

Ohio State Team Concludes Fat Preserves Coral Reefs

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 19, 2015

We often hear about the dangers that human encroachment has on coral reefs, but far less often do we hear of ways the coral can survive. Though global warming continues to threaten the coral reefs of the world, researchers at The Ohio State University have discovered that some species of coral are actually doing a very good job of surviving, and that their rate of survival is directly proportional to their fat content.

Restoring Hearing at the University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 15, 2015

Though they are easy to take for granted, our five senses are the best tools we have for interacting with our environment. This is why a large sector of biotechnology is dedicated to preserving and improving these senses. We've seen Ann Arbor researchers restore lost sense of smell and Chicago researchers restore lost vision in years past. At the University of Cincinnati, a research group is working on effectively restoring hearing in children.

Predicting Brain Tumors in Columbus

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 01, 2015

We’ve recently seen some compelling results when it comes to destroying brain tumors. A UCLA team blasted tumors with nanoparticles and a Washington University team shut down stem cells in the tumors to prevent them from regenerating. But what if we saw the tumors forming so far in advance that we didn’t need to blast them or worry about their regeneration? A breakthrough from Ohio State University proposes a way to forecast brain tumors long before their onset.
