WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6

A Heat-targeted Drug Delivery Scheme: Elastin-like Polypeptides (ELPs) genetically engineered proteins that respond to heat are being explored as a potential drug delivery system.

Presentation #2838-Plat: "Biophysical analysis of a novel drug delivery vector: ELP[V5G3A2-150]" http://tinyurl.com/anfecds

Blasting the Way to Brain Injury Treatment: Researchers study the effects of blast-induced traumatic brain injuries on astrocytes, star-shaped cells that play a role in the repair process for brain and spinal cord injuries. Using a device that delivers shock waves to cultures of human central nervous system (CNS) cells, they identify changes in the signaling behavior of astrocytes, suggesting a potential therapeutic target for treating CNS trauma.

Presentation #3171-Pos: "Shock waves simulating blast-induced traumatic brain injury activate purinergic signaling in astrocytes" http://tinyurl.com/asl2p6n

Vitamin D to Fight Breast Cancer: High concentrations of vitamin D at a tumor site have been proposed as a possible treatment for inflammatory breast cancer. Using quantum dots, scientists report delivering the active form of vitamin D to breast cancer tumors in mice.

Presentation #2953-Pos: "Using calcitriol conjugated quantum dots to target inflammatory breast cancer tumors and metastasis in vivo" http://tinyurl.com/acw94xg

Tracking the Evolution of Antibiotic Resistance: Antibiotic resistance is, both literally and figuratively, an evolving threat to public health. Using a device called the "morbidostat," which adjusts drug concentrations to maintain a nearly constant inhibition of bacterial growth, researchers tracked how bacterial populations acqu
