Growing a Brain at Ohio State

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Aug 20, 2015

Growing human organs outside of the body is more reality than science fiction these days. We have seen researchers reproduce a human heart from bicep muscle cells at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and grow stomachs and intestines in the labs of the University of Cincinnati. Now The Ohio State University is taking on the challenge of recreating the human brain.

$10M Donated to Ohio State to Establish New Center for Brain Health

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Jun 22, 2015

With the assistance of a recent $10 million contribution to Ohio State University, donors Stan and Joan Ross are helping to establish the Stanley D. and Joan H. Ross Center for Brain Health and Performance. Once open, this center will coincide with the Brain and Spine Hospital currently being constructed at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center that is slated to open in 2016.

Ohio State's New Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building Now Open

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, May 04, 2015

The newest addition to the Ohio State University Campus - the new Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry Building - held its grand opening earlier this month, on April 10, 2015. Located at the heart of the science and engineering portion of campus, the new building greaty expands laboratory and research space.

OSU Researchers Give Tumor Cells a Fatal Overdose

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 09, 2015

In the past year, we have seen some excellent progress in the field of breast cancer. Researchers at the University of Texas found a way to reduce breast cancer recurrence, and five University of Cincinnati researchers won grants for their advances in the field. Now Ohio State University has earned its time in the spotlight with a new drug that reverses tumor growth.

Ohio State Team Prevents Heart Attacks With Gene Variation

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 12, 2015

Though we often report on the miraculous effects of suppressing or expressing just one gene, very often changing a single gene has minimal impact. However, in some cases the combination of two genetic changes does something far more drastic than changing either gene individually. In a recent study published by The Ohio State University, a research team found two innocuous gene variants whose mutations work together to protect against heart attacks.

Increasing Infection Immunity by Inhibiting Inflammation at OSU

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Oct 23, 2014

Life science research has brought us the realization that one does not simply “age.” In the eyes of biotechnology researchers, the aging of the human body is a complicated, multifaceted process made up of several subprocesses. Some of these subprocesses can be delayed, stopped and even reversed. We saw one such example last month with a UCLA study on cell autophagy. Today, researchers from Ohio State University bring us another aspect of aging and show that it is reversible.

OSU Drug Explodes E. Coli

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 24, 2014

If a malicious bacterium seems particularly hardy in the face of current treatments, it’s probably only because we haven’t discovered its secret weakness. This seems to be the prevailing ideology at Ohio State University: earlier this month we saw how deactivating a single gene starves Salmonella and renders it essentially harmless. Now OSU researchers have pinpointed a protein in E. coli that, when inhibited, causes the bacteria to explode.

Salmonella's Fatal Weakness Discovered at Ohio State

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 10, 2014

Despite our best efforts to eat fully cooked, virus-free food, 42,000 Americans fall victim to Salmonella infections each year. Once it’s inside you, there’s nothing you can do except for wait it out and miserably resolve never to make the same mistake twice. This utter helplessness inspired bioresearchers at Ohio State University to develop a secret weapon against the bacteria that targets a rather surprising weakness.

A Holistic Approach to Blood Cell Isolation at Ohio State

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, May 15, 2014

A challenging problem in biotechnology today is isolating an elusive type of blood cell that acts as a unique stem cell. Many believe it is too difficult a task to be worth the time and money. A research team at Ohio State University agrees with this belief, but sees no reason to despair: they instead propose an easier, more creative method to accomplish the same goal.
