Cleveland, Ohio (OBBeC) – The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine has announced that it has has received a $4 million grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, a division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to fund the Case Center for Synchrotron Biosciences.
Atlanta, Georgia (OBBeC) - The explosive growth of genomic and proteomic data has ushered in a new era of molecular medicine in which cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment are tailored to each individual's molecular profile. But this personalized medicine approach requires that researchers discover and link biomarkers -- such as genes or proteins -- to specific disease behaviours, such as the rate of tumour progression and different responses to treatments.
Gainesville, FL (OBBeC) - According to a report from the University of Florida, a multicentre team of childhood cancer researchers has discovered two genetic variations linked to an increased risk for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or ALL, the most common childhood cancer in the United States.
For over 15 years computers have played a crucial role in our world and have revolutionized our lives to such an extent that we feel we simply can no longer live without them. This statement may seem dramatic and may be argued by some, but let’s face it, we have become so dependent on computers that even for the simplest piece of information the first source we turn to is, you guessed it, the Internet, via computers.
Size is becoming one of the key success factors today across many industries in this shrinking world. From cars to iPods, we see size and opportunity becoming more inversely proportional. Healthcare sector is no different in this trend. When it comes to instruments used in research/ diagnostics laboratories or even in point-of-care setting, reducing the foot print is given a top priority. Advancements in the development of micro total analysis systems (uTAS or mTAS) or lab-on-chip has slowly gained importance in various fields of which lifesciences is one of the major application areas.
