Lechleiter: Agbioscience 'Parts and Pieces' in Place

November 30, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS - Former Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) Chief Executive Officer John Lechleiter says Indiana has all the tools it needs to be an agbiosciences leader, including heritage, strength in education, life sciences and logistics and an invested state government. Lechleiter was part of a panel on "crossing sector lines" at today's Agbiosciences Innovation Summit in Indianapolis. He says the key is getting all of those players to part with their "narrow self interests" and share ideas and resources.

Model of protein signal transduction events important for learning and memory

November 29, 2017

Dr. Tamara Kinzer-Ursem, member of the Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience (PIIN) and Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, recently published a significant work in the open-source journal PLoS Computational Biology and presented related work at the annual Society for Neuroscience (SfN) conference in Washington, DC. The PLoS Comp Biol publication, entitled “Competitive Tuning: Competition’s Role in Setting the Frequency-Dependence of Ca2+-Dependent Proteins”, describes a detailed model of protein signal transduction events that are important for learning and memory.

November 29, 2017

A Purdue University-led team of researchers developing an anemia-detection application for mobile devices received funding from the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute to evaluate the technology’s use in patients undergoing treatment for cancer. The creation of sHEA (smartphone-based bloodless spectrometerless HEemoglobin Analyzer) by Young Kim, associate professor with the Purdue Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, and Md Munirul Haque, research scientist with the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue, aims to make detecting anemia easier and more convenient.

Freezing electrons makes them get in line

November 28, 2017

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — New research published in Nature Communications suggests that electrons in a two-dimensional gas can undergo a semi-ordered (nematic) to mostly-ordered (smectic) phase transition, which has been discussed in physics theory but never seen in practice before. “Imagine that we could build an ice skating rink for electrons, and the electrons had to move along the surface; they couldn’t move up and down, so they just had to skate around each other,” said Michael Manfra, the Bill and Dee O’Brien Chair Professor of physics and astronomy at Purdue. “When you cool them down to very low temperatures and place them in a magnetic field, they sort of lock in step with each other; they line up like soldiers on a battlefield.”

Dr. Jung-Il Moon will be participating in the Stem Cell COREdinates

November 28, 2017

Dr. Jung-Il Moon, Coordinator of the Neuroscience Cell Engineering Core Facility, will be participating in the Stem Cell COREdinates on November 29-30, 2017, in New Jersey. Stem Cell COREdinates is a consortium of human pluripotent stem cell-focused core facilities that have joined forces to share our experiences and expertise with protocols, reagents, and to establish “best practices.” This open line of communication makes our member laboratories stronger, ultimately benefitting our client laboratories. One outcome of our efforts is a collection of protocols that are publicly available on Stembook.org and here on our protocol page.
