Ohio State University to Build New Hospital

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Jan 30, 2018

 Ohio State University (OSU) plans to augment the Wexner Medical Center with a new hospital and an ambulatory center. The university is currently seeking qualified professionals to design the inpatient tower as well as the outpatient care facility. These new medical buildings are key components of OSU’s strategic plan andtheir “Framework 2.0” plan which are both designed to assist the university achieve its goal to continue providing cutting-edge research, outstanding clinical training and world-class patient care.

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.

Dr. Abraham Badu-Tawiah, assistant professor at Ohio State University, is out to revolutionize the world of diagnostic testing. By making paper strips that can detect malaria and well as certain types of cancers, he hopes to make testing more practical and affordable. People would be able to simply apply a drop of blood to the paper test strip at home, much like diabetics do when testing their blood sugar, and then mail it to the laboratory. This new method would make medical diagnostics much more accessible for those who can't easily get to a lab for testing.

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.

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.

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.

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.
