Gorgeous New Building for Medical Students Opens at Duke University

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Feb 18, 2013

Medical students at Duke University finally have their own home after being spread out over the medical campus for 73 years. Filled with natural light from the glass walls and study nooks for doing work, this building is a gorgeous feat of architecture. It has been named the Mary Duke Biddle Trent Semans Center for Health Education, and it’s located right in the middle of the medical campus. The center provides a space for medical students who used to have to study in the basement of Duke Medicine’s Purple Zone, the Davison Building and every so often, spaces rented for large gatherings.

Mt Sinai Life Science Research Tackles the Flu, Causing it to Stumble

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Wed, Jan 23, 2013

With this winter's epic flu invasion maxing out emergency room space and leaving pharmacies without enough flu vaccine, influenza research is a hot topic in the news. Inquiring minds want to know: when will we have the tools to put this mutating foe out of commission once and for all? One very interesting approach to the problem of outsmarting the flu virus involves disrupting its timing by altering a critical protein it needs to exit the cell. At Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, microbiologist and virologist Benjamin R. tenOever recently published an article on his lab research into the molecular basis of virus pathogenicity in the journal Cell Reports. He was also interviewed by NPR just last week for their shots health news program, where he described the carefully-orchestrated maneuvering of the flu virus both into and out of the host cell by likening it to a bank robbery. If one part of the plan doesn't go off like clockwork, the gig is up.

Emory and Georgia Tech Award $630K in Research Grants

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Jan 14, 2013

The Emory/Georgia Tech Regenerative Engineering and Medicine Center has awarded $630,000 in the form of 11 seed grants targeted towards new research in regenerative medicine. The grant-funded research attends to the issue of how the body (including bone, muscle, nerves, blood vessels and tissues) can take advantage of its own potential to heal or regenerate after disease or trauma.
