$8.5M in Life Science Funding Awarded to UNC Chapel Hill

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Fri, Nov 01, 2013

“Despite the clinical success of antiretroviral therapy (ART), more people contract human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection daily than initiate ART,” states the NIH RePORTER abstract for a new study receiving funding from the NIH. “The difficulties of lifelong ART - particularly in the developing world - make the eradication of HIV imperative. But clearance of a retroviral infection for patients on ART is a herculean task. While much is known about HIV persistence despite ART, many puzzles remain. New tools to address latent infection must replace the paradigms and models used to develop ART.”

Life Science Research at UNC Investigates Septic Shock Pathway

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Mon, Sep 23, 2013

Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recently made an important contribution to life science research with a study published in the September 13th, 2013 issue of the journal Science. Scientists have known for some time that there are sensors on the outside of cells that act as motion detectors for bacteria that may be dangerous. The researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found a sensor pathway inside of cells that that triggers a response by the immune system. According to the study, the interior sensors can work with the exterior sensors to detect a molecule called lipopolysaccharide, or LPS.
