Texas A&M: 3D Printed Bone the Future of Facial Surgery

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Jan 11, 2017

Currently, doctors have two options when a patient needs a facial bone replaced due to injury or illness, such as cancer. They can take a bone from another part of the body and graft it into place. However, implant morbidity and complications caused by the trauma of multiple surgeries make this option less than ideal. The second option is to graft synthetic materials to the site. However, from time of injury to delivery of the custom implant takes about three to four weeks, which reduces the chances of the patient healing properly. But now a new technology being developed by researchers at Texas A&M’s College of Dentistry may revolutionize the treatment process.

Texas A&M Gains Research Funding to Study Post-Traumatic Epilepsy

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Oct 26, 2016

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is the leading cause of disability among U.S. military personnel and veterans. What’s more, 50% of people with TBI develop spontaneous seizures. If the seizures become recurrent then the condition qualifies as Post-Traumatic Epilepsy, PTE. Now thanks to a 3 year, $750,000 research grant from the Department of Defense and the Army, researchers at Texas A&M will conduct a study on TBI to uncover the molecular and epigenetic mechanism of PTE.

TAMU Receives $1.9 Million Grant for Tuberculosis Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Oct 27, 2014

Tuberculosis (TB) affects people all over the world, although over 95 percent of the cases are in developing countries. TB is caused by a bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) that affects the lungs, which can stay in the body for many months before any symptoms are seen, leading to the transmission of the disease between people. Unlike many other universal diseases, though, tuberculosis is curable if caught in time and preventable. Even with known cures for TB, scientists are still studying the structure of the Mtb protein to find ways of using it to design future drugs.

Science Researchers at Texas A&M Investigate Collagen Fractals

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Sep 22, 2014

When most people think of collagen, they think of beauty-conscious women who receive injections to appear more youthful. When life science researchers think of collagen, however, they conceive it as an abundant protein in the human body and associate it with connective tissues, tendons, ligaments, skin, corneas, cartilage, bones, blood vessels and teeth. Texas A & M University researchers are conducting analytical lab investigations to discover how collagen fibrils assemble into well-organized networks on surfaces.

New University Lab Equipment Funding at Texas A&M

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jun 17, 2013

Lab suppliers interested in increasing lab sales leads and marketing university lab equipment may be interested in the latest research grants for graduate students at Texas A&M University. The Texas Sea Grant College Program at Texas A&M University is giving $30,000 in funding to 21 graduate students. According to the TAMU Times, the stipulations of these grants are that the research funding must be spent on research costs, including purchase of lab equipment, laboratory analysis and field work. This funding may lead to some potential lab sales leads for lab suppliers, but it also demonstrates Texas A&M University’s dedication to funding both student and professional research, making the school a research powerhouse.

TX Cancer Research Fund Appoints "Legendary" New Chief Scientific Officer

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Dec 12, 2012

In an attempt to shore up both the reputation and functionality of the nations's largest state-funded cancer agency, officials at the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) just announced the appointment of Dr. Margaret Kripke as the agency's new chief scientific officer. The embattled agency has faced accusations from many of its key scientists that irregularities and favoritism in the funding process have undermined their scientific credibility and put commercialization above research.

TAMU Wins $14M in USDA Grants for Bovine Disease and Feed Research

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, Dec 07, 2012

For both dairy and beef production, cows are an important part of the US economy and food supply. When they get sick, it's bad for business (and not too pleasant for the cow). The most common illness in cattle is Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD), which accounts for losses of more than $690M annually in the US alone. To combat this threat to bovine health and productivity, the USDA has recently awarded a $9M 5-year grant to researchers at Texas A&M University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Missouri, to study genetic selection for breeding more disease-resitant stock. A second $5M grant will go towards research into feed efficiency, again with the aim of breeding heartier, healthier, and more profitable animals.
