UIC: New Treatment Option For Type 1 Diabetes Brings Research Funding

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Mon, Aug 15, 2016

The University of Illinois at Chicago received a two-year, $475,000 grant to study a new treatment for type 1 diabetes that might help protect the pancreas. This promising new treatment would involve using two protein molecules to reduce the damage caused by the body’s autoimmune response.  The research led by Dr. Bellur S. Prabhaker, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at UIC, could eventually free many diabetes patients from the rigors of daily insulin injections.

Illinois Researchers Engineer Artificial Ribosome

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Aug 17, 2015

Ribosomes, found within cells, are vital to the production of proteins and enzymes. Researchers from the University of Chicago, Illinois and Northwestern University recently created the first ribosome engineered in a lab. This newly engineered ribosome, named Ribo-T, was found to work almost as well as natural ribosomes found within organisms, leading scientists to see potential uses for new drugs and biomaterials.

Green Lab Upgrades at UIC Save Money and Energy

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 10, 2013

With the multitudes of green methods and practices available to labs today, it’s simply a waste not to take full advantage of them. We recently discussed the growing prevalence of this technology on college campuses in our blog MSU Green Chemistry Finds Renewable Energy in Biowaste. This week, the University of Illinois at Chicago joins the scene with a revamping of their Science and Engineering Laboratories Complex focused on energy efficiency and conservation.

UIC Bioresearcher Speaks Bacterial Language, Wins Grant

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 25, 2013

Depending on who you ask, antibiotics are the best and worst defense against disease-bearing bacteria. On the one hand, they are very effective and easy to administer. Unfortunately, the more we use them, the more bacteria learn to thrive in a so-called “antibacterial” environment, culminating in a worst-case scenario where all bacteria are entirely resistant to antibiotics. Fighting against that future are bioresearchers from the University of Illinois, Chicago, who are pursuing more clever ways to prevent microbes from diseasing us.
