Columbia Researchers Use Printer To Repair Knees

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Dec 23, 2014

Every year about 1 million surgeries in the United States are performed to repair torn meniscus, the protective cartilage in the knee. When this cartilage is damaged, it can cause pain and lead to serious arthritis. Current treatments to repair meniscus involve performing a transplant with tissue taken from either different areas in the body or from a cadaver,. This method, however, has significant risks and relatively low success rates.

Rockefeller Researchers Work on Programmable Antibiotics

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Nov 18, 2014

Microbes, also known as germs, are found everywhere in the human body. Some are bad for health, some are good, and some still have unknown purposes. When the germs in the body cause an illness to set in, it is common to take antibiotic drugs to fight off the bad microbes making you sick. There are hundreds of types of antibiotics that cure different infections, but one thing all these antibiotics have in common is that they kill off all microbes, both good and bad. Life science researchers at Rockefeller University in New York have been working on creating 'programmable' antibiotics that will be able to target specific germs instead of attacking all of them.

$5.8 Million Awarded to New Collaborative Program to Study Genes to Find New Drug Targets

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Nov 05, 2014

There are thousands of genes in the human genome that all have different purposes. At least 3,000 of these genes are known to express proteins that can be altered by different medications, however, the FDA has only approved drugs that target around 10 percent of these genes. That means that there are still thousands of genes that have not been thoroughly studied that, with the help of the right medication, could be targeted to help improve human health. The National Institutes of Health Common Fund has awarded 8 U.S. institutions $5.8 million for a new collaborative three-year program called Illuminating the Druggable Genome (IDG) that will study different genes and their potential to be modified by different medicines.
