A team of observational health data researchers, coordinated by Columbia University, will support an FDA program to conduct safety and effectiveness surveillance of vaccines and other biologic products.
This trial's goal is to assess the safety and efficacy of an innovative gene therapy designed at Genethon, combining an AAV-type viral vector with a shortened version of the dystrophin gene, 'microdystrophin'.
The University of California's two nationally ranked medical centers, UCSF and UCLA, and their nuclear medicine teams have obtained approval from the US Food and Drug Administration to offer a new imaging technique for prostate cancer that locates cancer lesions in the pelvic area and other parts of the body to which the tumors have migrated.
A new study will allow a team of interdisciplinary researchers to unpack complex relationships to discover why food insecurity is occurring at such high rates within Oklahoma's HIV community and how food insecurity may influence the development or aggravation of chronic co-morbidities in HIV, such as Type 2 diabetes.
Maria Blasco from the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO, Madrid) and Fàtima Bosch from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB, Barcelona) have founded the new 'Telomere Therapeutics', with an investment from 'Invivo Ventures'. The researchers will develop a new telomerase gene therapy to treat this age-related disease.
Students at Queen Mary University of London have been virtually transported into a surgical ward to follow their lecturer on his ward rounds.
A breakthrough in microscopy and endoscopy will soon revolutionize the study of the cellular origin of diseases, advancing the field of precision medicine. This is the goal of CRIMSON, a trans-disciplinary and trans-national research project recently funded by European Commission.
Testing electrified and autonomous vehicles in public passenger transit is the goal of the RABus collaboration project. In the cities of Mannheim and Friedrichshafen, self-driving busses will be tested in regular urban road traffic. Researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) will accompany project work by studying demand, acceptance, and impacts. The project is to result in a model concept for efficient public passenger transit with autonomous busses in Baden-Württemberg.
The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), the largest global HIV research network, has been re-funded for the next seven years by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and collaborating NIH Institutes. The group is led by Judith Currier, M.D., M.Sc, Professor of Medicine at UCLA, and Joseph Eron M.D., Professor of Medicine, University of North Carolina. The Operations Center is based at UCLA.
In an increasingly complex global security environment, Stevens Institute of Technology has been tapped to leverage its top systems engineering researchers as well as its nationwide network of experts from universities across the country to infuse the U.S. defense acquisition system with the agility and speed now needed to better respond to the rapid increase of technological advancements critical to today's warfighter.
