Algae To The Rescue

Posted by David Larsen on Fri, Nov 07, 2014


Could algae hold the energy answers to our fuel depleted world?

In today's world, energy reserves are being depleted gallon by gallon at an astounding rate. Thanks to the advances of technology and highly funded research we might be able to harness the underutilized power of algae.

  • Half of algae's composition, by weight, is lipid oil
  • Algae yields around 8,000 gallons of biofuel per acre per year as opposed to corn biofuel at 420 gallons
  • Depending on the species, algae can grow in freshwater and saltwater, and in the future could be used to treat wastewater.

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 29, 2014

Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, occurs when white blood cells begin behaving abnormally, and do not properly protect the body from infections and diseases. There are two main types of lymphoma, Hodgkin Lymphoma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, and although between 30 and 60 percent of patients with lymphoma can be cured through different treatment methods like chemotherapy and radiation therapy, there are still problems with lymphoma being resistant to some drugs used. The National Cancer Institute, part of the NIH, recently awarded the University of Arizona Tucson a 5-year, $1.59 million life science grant to study methods of combating drug resistance in lymphoma treatments.
