$150,000 in funding to advance, commercialize Purdue innovations

July 15, 2019

Four Purdue University researchers have received a total of $150,086 from the Trask Innovation Fund to help their labs commercialize their innovations. The fund is a development program established to support projects that advance the commercial value of Purdue University intellectual property. The fund makes awards twice a year to aid faculty and staff with their patented innovations that are being commercialized through the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization.

Bone and the Microbiome Have a Brittle Relationship

July 12, 2019

Laura McCabe had been living a dual professional life at Michigan State University for more than a decade, studying bone in her lab while teaching medical students gastrointestinal physiology in the classroom, when she came across a call for proposals from the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Could researchers look into how inflammatory bowel diseases affect bone? “I thought, ‘This is me!’” McCabe says. In 2007, with grant funding in hand, her two disciplines had collided.

Now hear this: Study highlights the importance of avoiding noise-induced hearing loss

July 11, 2019

It turns out the source of hearing loss may have a large impact on a person’s ability to understand speech and enjoy music. That’s the result of a new study from researchers at Purdue University and the University of Rochester that was recently published in The Journal of Neuroscience.

The power of the brain to fight opioid addiction, treat chronic pain

July 11, 2019

he annual cost of chronic pain in the United States is estimated to be more than $635 billion in direct medical costs, lost productivity and disability programs. One in five adults – 50 million Americans – report living in chronic pain. The increasing number of patients is leading to a major push to develop non-opioid treatments for chronic pain. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that an average of 130 Americans die each day from an opioid overdose. Researchers at Purdue University are developing compounds to provide effective pain relief without the risks associated with opioids. The compounds selectively inhibit adenylyl cyclase 1 (AC1), an enzyme that has previously been validated to target chronic inflammatory pain.
