Biomedical News: Charlie’s Law Opens Opportunities for Stem Cell Treatments in Texas

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Thu, Nov 02, 2017

In June, the Texas legislature unanimously passed Charlie’s Law which allows patients with chronic and terminal diseases access to experimental stem cell interventions. The law, named after the late Texas State representative Charlie Howard, is the first of its kind in the U.S.

Texas A&M: $10M in Research Funding to Study Effects of Harvey

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Fri, Oct 13, 2017

In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a group of researchers will study the effects of the pollution stirred up by the flooding. Scientists from Texas A&M, College Station will conduct four environmental research projects thanks to a five year, $10 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program. All four projects will stem from a case study of Galveston Bay and the Houston Ship Channel that examines the chemicals found within the sediment. These studies are designed to improve our understanding of the complexities of hazardous chemicals exposure and its negative impacts on health.

Oregon State Acquires $1.6M Spectroscopy Instrument for Advanced Materials Research

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Sun, Sep 03, 2017

Oregon State University recently acquired a new, customized $1.6 million ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy system (AP-XPS).  The AP-XPS is the first instrument of its kind in the United States to incorporate an ambient-pressure scanning tunneling microscope, or AP-STM, which enables imaging of surfaces with atomic resolution. This high-tech research instrument will make the surface characterization laboratory at OSU’s College of Engineering a major resource for scientists throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Two New Mass Spectrometers Make Texas A&M a Top Facility for Studying Isotopes

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Thu, Jan 19, 2017

The chancellor’s office of Texas A&M University (TAMU) recently funded a $5 million initiative to support mass spectrometry research. As part of this initiative a $1 million grant from the Texas A&M University Research Development Fund will be used to develop a shared mass spectrometry core facility and buy two new mass spectrometers for the College Station campus. One will be a gas chromatography combustion/pyrolysis isotope ratio mass spectrometer and the other will be a high resolution isotope ratio mass spectrometer for clumped isotopes.

Research Mice, Science Equipment Lost and Saved in Northeast Storm

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Nov 02, 2012

Though the general consensus seems to be that the Northeast weathered deadly storm Sandy relatively well thanks to warnings and emergency plans put into action, there were unexpected casualties beyond the loss of over 80 human lives. Massive flooding in the lower New York Metro Area was not on the radar to the extent that it actually transpired, and basements that were thought to be flood-safe turned out not to be. That was the case at New York University's Smilow Research Center, where animal labs underground were inundated and approximately 10,000 research mice and rats drowned and lab equipment was ruined. On the upper floors, precious biological samples and reagents were lost as freezers and refrigerators shut down. Other research institutions in the area fared better.

Powerful MRI Scanner Advances Cornell Lab Research Competitiveness on Ithaca Campus

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Jun 20, 2012

While magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners are most often associated with clinical diagnostics activities, their ability to visualize internal structures of the body in detail, especially soft tissues, makes MRI scanning machines extremely valuable for laboratory research scientists as well. So it's no small matter that an NIH equipment grant has made it possible for Cornell University in Ithaca to get one of its own, just last week, and establish the Cornell MRI Facility in Martha Van Rensselaer Hall. It's not just any scanner either, but a 3 Tesla GE Discovery 750, which provides noninvasive imaging with high signal-to-noise ratio and spatial resolution for structural and functional research involving small animals, humans, plants and biomedical materials. MRI technology does not involve radiation.

Marine Life Science Research Bonanza at Scripps Thanks to NSF Award

Posted by BCI Staff on Wed, Jul 06, 2011

In a demonstration of just how complicated it can be to do life science research, Scripps Institute of Oceanography at UCSD just announced a major project to catalog and make available to study fish that were caught by scientists 40 or 50 years ago.  It's called the Library of Fishes, and thanks to an NSF award it will soon get to the stage where it can open its doors (and jars) to researchers.
