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.

Growing a Brain at Ohio State

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Aug 20, 2015

Growing human organs outside of the body is more reality than science fiction these days. We have seen researchers reproduce a human heart from bicep muscle cells at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and grow stomachs and intestines in the labs of the University of Cincinnati. Now The Ohio State University is taking on the challenge of recreating the human brain.

Cincinnati Researcher Awarded $1.8M to Further Breast Cancer Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Jul 28, 2015

Breast cancer is one of the most common forms cancer, with about 230,000 new cases in women and 2,300 new cases in men diagnosed each year. Many researchers around the world are dedicated to studying breast cancer, to find new treatment methods and gain better understandings of how this cancer is caused, how it grows, and how it can be stopped. Research ranges from trying to starve breast cancer tumors to studying how specific proteins are involved with the cancer.
