$3.2 million NIH award to support technology to fight deadly bacterial lung infections

February 25, 2020

New support may help Purdue University scientists target what they call one of the greatest threats to human health – antimicrobial resistance. A Purdue team has received a $3.2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health for its work to treat antibiotic-resistant lower respiratory infections – the fourth-leading cause of death worldwide. Gram-negative respiratory “superbugs” such as Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Acinetobacter baumannii have been highlighted by the Infectious Diseases Society of America among the top six dangerous multidrug-resistant microorganisms.

PVM Professor Helps Develop New Technology for Laser-Driven Pathogen Detection

February 21, 2020

Professor J. Paul Robinson in Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Basic Medical Sciences worked with a team of Purdue researchers to develop new technology to help stop the spread of foodborne illnesses, which kill 3,000 people a year. The technology combines innovative assays with laser pulses to detect these illnesses more efficiently.

How are microbes attracted to an oil spill?

February 20, 2020

When containing a massive disaster like an oil spill, small microbes play a big role. Arezoo Ardekani, a Purdue University associate professor of mechanical engineering, has published research that describes the complex hydrodynamics of microorganisms at liquid-liquid and gas-liquid interfaces, showing that microbes may flock to areas where surfactant has been applied.

Study: Your home’s water quality could vary by the room – and the season

February 19, 2020

Is the water in your home actually safe, given that water utility companies in the U.S. aren’t required by law to monitor the water that specifically enters a building at its service line? A study has found that the water quality of a home can differ in each room and change between seasons, challenging the assumption that the water in a public water system is the same as the water that passes through a building’s plumbing at any time of the year.
