UC Davis Inhales $2.3M in Grants for Pulmonary Bioresearch

Posted by BCI Staff on Tue, Oct 18, 2016

 (Article posted 2015 and updated in 2016)

Patients with a condition known as lung nodules may soon be breathing a bit more easily, thanks to research funding granted to the University of California, Davis  and a new diagnostic technology tested in a 2016 study at the Morehouse School of Medicine and Emory University. Lung nodules are usually benign, small lesions often found in CT chest scans. While only 2% of these nodules end up being cancerous, they still require examination and monitoring to ensure the safety of the patient.

UC Davis Bioresearchers Illuminate Neurons With Tarantula Toxin

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 30, 2014

There are many times when putting tarantula toxin into human cells seems like a very bad idea. At the University of California, Davis, however, it is a breakthrough idea that allows for closer examination of the electrical activity in cells, especially neurons. This opens up the field of brain study and also lends insights into conditions like muscle defects, cardiac arrhythmias, and epilepsy.

Huge Leap Forward in Genome Sequencing Research Capabilities at UC Davis

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Thu, Jan 03, 2013

An historic collaboration between the University of California Davis and China's BGI, the world’s largest genomics organization, has dramatically increased the University's genome sequencing capabilities and promises to open up altogether new research opportunities in the life sciences community with genomic studies of plants, animals, humans and microbes. The new joint endeavor is called BGI@UC Davis and will benefit both UCD and China's first citizen-managed, non-profit research institution.

UCD Eye Center Celebrates Successful Telescopic Retinal Implant Biotech Procedure

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Nov 07, 2012

The Bionic Man has not arrived, and to our knowledge the military has not equipped any special agents with cyborg implants to boost their optical capabilities in the field. No, the news is both less and more exciting than those fantasy scenarios: people with end-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) now have the chance to see again. Surgeons and vision scientists at the University of California Davis Eye Center in Sacramento recently celebrated their first successful procedure with the new technology. The medical duo that performed the operation were Drs. Mark Mannis and Jennifer Li.

UCD Biomedical Research Demonstrates Dangers of Common Antibacterial Chemical

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Tue, Sep 11, 2012

The word antibacterial is popping up on more and more household items as merchandisers find that consumers generally believe that chemicals designed to kill bacteria are a useful additive to a product and boost its appeal. Very often the chemical that's added is one called triclosan, and according to recently published research by a team of University of California Davis biomedical scientists, the common polychloro phenoxy phenol causes muscle impairment in animal and lab tissue models. Specifically, it limits the ability of the muscle to expand and contract. A beating heart is one example.

Davis Bio Research Microbiologist Rocks TEDTalk: Meet Your Microbes

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Mon, Jul 23, 2012

Remember the character of Pigpen in the comic strip Peanuts? He walked around within a cloud of dust and dirt. Well, according to University of California Davis microbiologist Jonathan Eisen, we all live within our own aura of microbes --10 times as many microbial cells as human cells!--and that's probably a very good thing for our health. It sounds counterintuitive at first, but not all microbes are bad. We've come to realize intestinal biota are good for digestion and colon health (among other things), but the outside of our bodies is also host to vast colonies of microbes that are increasingly proving to be vital cohorts of our immune system.

UC Davis Protein Research Sheds Light On Immune System

Posted by Sam Asher (Guest) on Tue, Jun 26, 2012

The University of California Davis Medical Center recently discovered a new function of the body’s immune system through research on the protein HD6, also known as alpha-defensin 6. The discovery of HD6’s unique virus fighting methods helps researchers better understand how the body retaliates against bowel disease.
