QPX Research on Clams (Fall 2007) NYSG Research: In Fall 2007, New York Sea Grant's Barbara A. Branca visited the Marine Animal Disease Laboratory at Stony Brook University to talk with researchers about their extensive QPX monitoring program in Raritan Bay, Peconic Bay and other areas of the marine district to determine the extent and distribution of QPX disease. QPX disease had caused mortalities in both cultured and wild populations of Mercenaria mercenaria, or hard clams, in the northeast in the 1990s. As its moniker suggests, little was known about this pathogen, a protistan parasite. A recent New York Sea Grant-funded study partially supported by NYSDEC, which has provided insight into the pathobiology of this parasite, may lay the groundwork for restoring the hard clam to health, as well as the industry itself.

T Cells Hunt Like Sharks in Our Body: Penn Study A cross-disciplinary team at the University of Pennsylvania has arrived at a surprising finding: T cells, a key part of the immune system, use a movement strategy to track down parasites that is similar to strategies that predators such as monkeys, sharks and blue-fin tuna use to hunt their prey. The research, published in the journal Nature, involved a unique collaboration between the laboratories of senior authors Christopher Hunter, professor and chair of the Pathobiology Department in Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine, and Andrea Liu, the Hepburn Professor of Physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Penn Vet postdoctoral researcher Tajie Harris and physics graduate student Edward Banigan also played leading roles in the research. The study, published in the journal Nature, was conducted in mice infected with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Using a refine yet powerful microscope that can display living tissues in three dimensions in real time, the researchers tracked the movements of T cells. Contrary to their expectations, the T cells did not move directly toward the parasite. But their movements were not entirely random, either. Instead, their paths tended to have many short "steps" and occasional long "runs," with long and short pauses in between. T cells aren't the only ones that move this way to find their targets. This strategy —many short-distance movements interspersed with occasional longer-distance moves — seems particularly common among hunting ...

Osteoporosis: Bouncing babies to crumbling wrinklies (20 Oct 2011) UCL Lunch Hour Lecture: Osteoporosis: Bouncing babies to crumbling wrinklies - the need to own our bones Professor Allen Goodship (UCL Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science) The skeleton is key to our ability to undertake everyday movements and activities related to well-being and high quality independent living. The general perception of bone is that of a museum specimen -- a dry inert structure. This is far from correct; our skeleton is a dynamic and responsive organ. The material properties and structural architecture are conditioned by both genetics and our changing functional demands throughout life. The devastating degenerative conditions such as osteoporosis (in both women and men!) and associated fragility fractures represent a time bomb for society and healthcare requirements in our ageing population. Through an understanding of the pathobiology of bone and the skeleton we can develop strategies to mitigate the risk of these conditions and thus prolong an active and independent life in old age. This lecture marked World Osteoporosis Day on 20 Oct

MACAWS in SlowMotion! Rainforest Research! *** Every Day 60 This is a REAL PLACE... and this happens EVERY MORNING!! I went there two mornings and made observations. It was amazing. Please Click to Tweet! bit.ly I apologize for the video being a couple of minutes longer... but it took months of planning and preparation to do this. I wanted to leave a bit in there about the boat so I wouldn't lose the memories! The noise was awful though (Macaws have a horrible song). I didn't know most of the rain in the Amazon comes from the Atlantic! So this is what happens when you combine a battery operated Miro LC320S high speed camera with an incredibly specific spot of dirt that Macaws LOVE. It took several days and lots of modes of transportation to get there, but we took a new MIRO ( to one of the most remote research facilities in the Peruvian Rainforest. The footage we obtained was incredible. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ How to get there yourself!: I coordinated the travel with Rainforest Expeditions Tell them Destin sent you.

River Monster: The Epidemiology, Ecology, and Pathobiology of Cholera || Radcliffe Institute Water Lecture Series John Mekalanos discusses the biology of cholera, driven by his investigations on the molecular genetics of the causative bacterial organism. With his many colleagues in Bangladesh, Haiti, and elsewhere, he has provided strong evidence for how this organism emerged as a human pathogen and has recently become more pathogenic, as well as for why epidemics begin and end so abruptly. He applied this knowledge to the construction of genetically stable cholera vaccines that have been successfully tested in the United States and Bangladesh. 00:00 Introduction by Joan Ruderman, Senior advisor to the science program, Academic Ventures at the Radcliffe Institute and Marion V.

The Vitamin D Debate Revisited On February 3, 2012 the Markin Undergraduate Student Research Program (USRP) in Health & Wellness once again kicked off its annual Markin Lecture Series. In light of the huge success of last year's Vitamin D Debate, and based on the feedback received from the audience and participants, it was decided that a follow-up event was not only necessary but would be welcomed. The format this year was augmented to include a segment allowing each of the panelists the opportunity to present their research and their viewpoints on this topic. These presentations were followed with a lively debate between the panelists as to the merits of various dosages of vitamin D. As always, one of the most important and popular components of the event was the audience question and answer (Q & A) period following the debate. This session proved to be an excellent platform for the audience to elicit real-life health implications regarding the intake of vitamin D and to further explore the researchers' opinions and expertise in this area. Dr. Stuart Wilkinson (Clinical Director -- Pure North S'Energy Foundation), Dr. Glenville Jones (Craine Professor -- Department of Biochemistry, Queen's University), Dr. Reinhold Vieth (Professor -- Department of Nutritional Sciences and Department of Laboratory Medicine & Pathobiology, University of Toronto) and Dr. David A.

How to Make Embryonic Stem Cells without Embryos FEATURED SPEAKER: R. Michael Roberts, Ph.D., Curators' Professor of Animal Science, Biochemistry, and Veterinary Pathobiology, University of Missouri -- Columbia, Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) are pluripotent, that is they have the potential to develop into more than one type of mature cell, and can theoretically give rise to all the tissue of the body. They have enormous therapeutic potential as agents to replace worn out or damaged tissues, but the safety of such cells and the likelihood that they will be rejected as "foreign" raise questions about their eventual utility. Recently, pluripotent cells very similar to ES cells have been obtained by "re-programming" ordinary skin cells, raising the possibility that the graft cells can be matched to the patient. Nevertheless, safety of the technology is still a major concern, as the cells may become cancerous after transfer. In Dr. Michael Roberts' laboratory at the University of Missouri -- Columbia, they are deriving such induced pluripotent stem cells from pig, with the view to testing the safety and efficacy of transplants in a large mammal whose anatomy, physiology, and immune system resemble those of the human. It's a fascinating look at science on the frontiers of biochemistry.

Genetically engineered and conventional sweet corn -- Sept. 2000 Back in 2000, Farmer Jeff Wilson and I thought we'd try and figure out if the consuming public wanted genetically engineered crops or not. As Jeff would say, if people aren't going to buy it, why would I grow it? I recently discovered some of that old video. This was way before youtube, but the idea was, for those who couldn't visit the farm, we would bring the farm to them. The original press release can be found at www.foodsafety.ksu.edu We'll be releasing a bunch of Farmer Jeff videos on youtube over the next couple of months, to provide some insights into the food production trade-offs that farmers face every day.
