UCI Receives Prestigious Lab Designation for Infectious Disease Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jul 18, 2016

With the rise of infectious diseases, like the Zika virus and Ebola virus, research centered on these diseases has risen in importance over the last few years. The University of California, Irvine has become a leader in infectious disease research thanks to a prestigious designation by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The high-containment biosafety level 3 training laboratory (BSL-3) at UC Irvine was recently designated as a National Biosafety & Biocontainment Training Center, making it the third such center in the United States.

UCI Researcher Granted $2.3 Million from NIH to Rejuvenate Brains

Posted by Robert Larkin on Wed, Jun 03, 2015

Brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, refers to the ability of the brain to react to the variety of changes that occur in the brain’s synapses or neural pathways over time. More specifically, plasticity involves changes that occur in the brain as a result of learning and experience, which is derived from emotions, behavior, thinking, and environment.  As a person reaches adulthood, the brain loses plasticity and becomes more rigid in its layout and function. Loss of plasticity also commonly occurs in those affected with traumatic brain injuries or disease.

Irvine Scientists Use Salmon to Cure Paralysis

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Sep 04, 2014

Roughly 2 percent of Americans have some form of paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury, according to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. It is impossible to restore function and movement lost in this sort of paralysis…or at least, it has been up until now. A bioresearch team at the University of California, Irvine has discovered the perfect concoction to cure such paralysis using, of all things, a protein transplant from salmon.
