Freezing Out Tumors at the University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Aug 22, 2013

Cancer is like the supervillain that all the heroes must team up to defeat. University researchers play the heroes in this analogy, always coming up with new tricks and methods to beat back cancer in its various forms. Nowhere is this theme more prevalent than at the University of Cincinnati, where we have seen remarkable improvements to cancer imaging technology and vaccines to enhance immunotherapy in some of our previous blogs. UC’s new superpower appears to be flash freezing as a method of targeting and eliminating tumors.

Ohio State Researchers Find Better Fibromyalgia Diagnosis

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Jul 26, 2013

Researchers at Ohio State University have come up with a dependable way to use a finger-stick blood sample to detect fibromyalgia syndrome, a complex pain disorder that often is complicated to diagnose. The test could potentially reduce the wait for diagnosis by five years if it’s someday made available to primary care physicians.

Center for Environmental Genetics at Cincinnati Wins $8.7M Grant

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 20, 2013

Humans might be on the top of natural food chain, but they still have to be wary of environmental dangers. One such danger that is often overlooked in the excitement of producing new things, like the next model of iPhone or a pair of solar contact lenses, is the effect of man-made products on the environment, and the subsequent consequences on human health. Fortunately, this is the research focus of the Center for Environmental Genetics, located at the University of Cincinnati.

Cancer-Fighting Compound Found in Mediterranean Diet at OSU

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, May 30, 2013

Though researchers have known for some time that eating a Mediterranean diet is good for the heart and can even help fight cancer, nobody has known exactly how it affects our bodies so positively. Now at Ohio State University, a new study shows how one compound in particular assists in the natural death of cancer cells.

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.

Checking Health With Sweat at the University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 21, 2013

A goal that many are working toward in the biotechnology field is to gather the maximum biological information about people using the least invasive practices. Ultimately, we would like to be able to simply scan ourselves with a little machine and instantly get a full report on our health for personal and doctor use. Moving forward on those lines is the University of Cincinnati, where a research team has announced a unique and unlikely candidate for the job: a portable, adhesive sweat analyzer.
