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.

University of Illinois, Chicago discovery will help stroke survivors

Posted by Katheryn Rein on Mon, Oct 08, 2012

A University of Illinois, Chicago discovery may hold the solution to successfully treating recovering stroke victims. After surviving a stroke, these outpatients can go through years of physical therapy in an attempt to regain one of the most important senses we as people have: our sense of balance. Without it, walking and moving become constant challenges, and the fear of falling becomes an everyday struggle. However, Alexander Aruin, a physical therapy professor at UI Chicago, has made a discovery that could change the lives of these stroke survivors for the better.
