UC Life Science Researchers Discover the Truth of Neonatal Infections

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Nov 14, 2013

One of the major health concerns for a newborn child is viral and bacterial infection. Prevailing medical belief holds that babies have underdeveloped immune systems and thus are simply unable to fight back. New evidence from the University of Cincinnati overturns this claim and provides insight on a better way to fight these invaders.

University of Cincinnati Researchers Build a Better Metal Detector

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 17, 2013

Getting blood work done is generally not the most simple or satisfying experience. Often it requires blood to be drawn from a vein, which is uncomfortable even if you don’t have a fear of blood or needles. On top of that, the results of the test take between three and nine months to finally get back to you.  A research team at the University of Cincinnati is perfecting a new biosensor that aims to make the process considerably easier to bear.

Freezing Out Tumors at the University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Aug 22, 2013

Cancer is like the supervillain that all the heroes must team up to defeat. University researchers play the heroes in this analogy, always coming up with new tricks and methods to beat back cancer in its various forms. Nowhere is this theme more prevalent than at the University of Cincinnati, where we have seen remarkable improvements to cancer imaging technology and vaccines to enhance immunotherapy in some of our previous blogs. UC’s new superpower appears to be flash freezing as a method of targeting and eliminating tumors.

Center for Environmental Genetics at Cincinnati Wins $8.7M Grant

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jun 20, 2013

Humans might be on the top of natural food chain, but they still have to be wary of environmental dangers. One such danger that is often overlooked in the excitement of producing new things, like the next model of iPhone or a pair of solar contact lenses, is the effect of man-made products on the environment, and the subsequent consequences on human health. Fortunately, this is the research focus of the Center for Environmental Genetics, located at the University of Cincinnati.

Green Chemistry Synthesis Uses Mechanics Rather Than Solvents

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Apr 10, 2013

Green chemistry refers to a number of processes and practices that minimize the toxic or hazardous effects of chemicals in the environment, the lab, or the manufacturing plant. One way to go green is to cut down on the use of dangerous solvents in reactive processes, thereby reducing waste and improving lab safety. Though sometimes a less toxic catalyst or reagent can be employed from the outset, reused, or made inert eventually, another way to get a chemical reaction is to apply physical force instead. Called mechanochemistry, it involves the application of mechanical engineering to chemistry. Instead of adding a solvent, agitation is used to achieve chemical synthesis.

University of Cincinnati Awarded $83M in Research Funding

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Mar 19, 2013

Biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers in Cincinnati will find a well-funded and vibrant research marketplace at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, as recent NIH and NSF research funding statistics show. In 2012, the NIH awarded the university $73.9 million in research funding. The funding was distributed among a number of different projects in various science disciplines. Of the different departments awarded research funding at the University of Cincinnati, the money was given out as listed below:

Checking Health With Sweat at the University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 21, 2013

A goal that many are working toward in the biotechnology field is to gather the maximum biological information about people using the least invasive practices. Ultimately, we would like to be able to simply scan ourselves with a little machine and instantly get a full report on our health for personal and doctor use. Moving forward on those lines is the University of Cincinnati, where a research team has announced a unique and unlikely candidate for the job: a portable, adhesive sweat analyzer.

Cells are Under Control at University of Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Wed, Dec 26, 2012

A technique that is becoming more and more widespread and useful in both modern medicine and biological research is that of cell manipulation. Instead of working purely on visible structures like organs and tissues, doctors and scientists have begun to focus in on how to sort, move, and alter the smallest building blocks of life: cells. While many techniques have been developed and accepted for these purposes, research at the University of Cincinnati has yielded a new method that may be both more efficient and inexpensive than anything seen thus far.

Cancer Imaging Research Advancing at Cincinnati

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 18, 2012

Despite all the leaps and bounds we’ve seen in recent years in cancer research, there’s always more to improve on when it comes to detection and treatment of cancer. Take for example the case of Wayne Wentzel, who underwent eight biopsies over fourteen years, which all tested negative for cancer. It wasn’t until he reached The University of Cincinnati that he got the answers and treatment he was seeking.
