Although the CTSA program is young, there have already been examples that show how partnering with CTSA researchers can benefit pharmaceutical companies. One is the Yale Clinical trial network, which should streamline and improve the clinical trials process for the companies that are part of it. Among other goals, the network will remove barriers to clinical trials and promote trial participation. There is also at least one example of a cross licensing agreement between a CTSA funded researcher and industry. Dr. Daniel Rader, at the University of Pennsylvania, took advantage of his universitys CTSA to develop an MTP inhibitor that was very effective in treating a rare disease called familial hypercholesterolemia. Seeing the potential of lower doses of the drug to treat patients at risk of heart disease, Aegerion Pharmaceuticals is developing the drug for this purpose.. ...

Research in the Xia laboratory is focused on exploring the gasphase ion chemistry of bio-radicals. With the aid of the ASMS Research Award, Dr. Xias group has developed devices to perform radical reactions of peptides and lipids within the plume region of an electrospray ionization (ESI) source. Radical reactions facilitate the formation of gas-phase bio-radical species (e.g. cysteine sulfinyl radicals), allowing detailed investigations of their intrinsic chemical properties (structure, unimolecular dissociation, and reactivity) via mass spectrometry. These fundamental studies provide mechanistic insights into radical transfer and reactions within or between proteins in biological systems, which are important for understanding enzyme catalysis and the fate of proteins after radical attack. Leveraging from these bio-radical ion chemistry studies, Dr. Xias group is also developing new methods for biomolecular structure analysis. Her group has shown evidence that radical reactions can be ...

At the 2014 ASCO Annual Meeting, Pasi Jänne, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, presented findings from a phase I study of AZD9291, a new mutant-selective EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor that offers a promising new treatment option for patients with advanced, EGFR-mutant, non-small cell lung cancer that is resistant to standard EGFR inhibitors. Roughly 50% of patients experienced tumor shrinkage, and the drug worked particularly well in patients with the T790M mutation (detected in 60% of patients), which causes the most common form of EGFR therapy resistance.. Targeting EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancer. EGFR mutations were discovered in a subset of lung cancer patients in 2004, and since then several clinical trials have shown that for patients who are newly diagnosed with advanced lung cancer and have an EGFR mutation, initial therapy with an EGFR inhibitor is better than conventional chemotherapy. Unfortunately, all patients ultimately develop ...

Introduction: GLUT4 protein is the most important isoform of glucose transporters in skeletal muscle. Reduction in its content and/or translocation is related to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus. In skeletal muscle cells there is also an ATP-sensitive potassium (KATP) channel with two subunits, sulfonylurea receptor type 2A, ABCC9 (SUR2A) and KIR6.2 (KCNJ11). In pancreatic B cells, this channel triggers insulin secretion in response to the rise in glucose levels, but in skeletal muscle its role is still unknown. Considering these aspects the aim of this study was to investigate whether KATP channel can influence glucose uptake in skeletal muscle by regulating GLUT4 expression and/or translocation.. Methods: Insulin resistance was induced in male Wistar rats by neonatal treatment with monosodium glutamate (MSG) (4 mg/g per day, s.c). At the age of three months, both control (C) and MSG treated animals received glimepiride (0.1 mg/kg per day, in the drinking water) for 4 weeks, and ...

Two scientists at UCSF and Stanford University, together with a colleague at Columbia University in New York, have won this years prestigious Lasker Award in basic research for discovering how molecular motors work inside cells, causing hearts to beat, muscles to contract and cells to divide. Over the years, the three have experimented with amoebae called dictyoselium, with the nerve fibers of giant squid collected at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass. and with the fibers inside a species of marine algae called nitella. At UCSF, Dr. Sam Hawgood, dean of the medical school, said of Vales discoveries: His work clearly demonstrates that uncovering the fundamental pathways of life through basic research is essential to our understanding of the human body and our search for new discoveries in the treatment of disease.

Professor Gilpins FRAP award will support continuing research for her book, Architectures of Disappearance: Movement in Performance, New Media, and Architecture, which is under contract with the MIT Press. This book draws on material and approaches from philosophy, cultural theory, and European movement performance to explore contexts in which movement is difficult to enact. Her research on the body in performance suggests that people generally feel comfortable representing dynamism, but they feel very uncomfortable enacting dynamism, or generating movement. Her research on recent forms of digital technology and architectural design, which employ tools of animation, motion capture, isomorphic and parametric strategies, as well as notions of emergence and indetermination, force, and dynamics, suggests that they too do not, in the end, enact dynamism. If anything, they seem to enact the disappearance of movement in the final work. Professor Gilpin addresses the work of a number of German, ...

Title: Modulation of Notch Signaling: Following New Genetic Clues in C. elegans. Within a multicellular animal, cells must communicate with one another. Such communication is critical during early development when the rapidly dividing cells of an embryo must coordinate with one another to achieve the complex organization and differentiation that is found in an adult animal. In her laboratory Professor Goutte uses the simple soil worm Caenorhabditis elegans as a model system in which to probe the molecular underpinnings of cellular communication. She has been focusing on one particular mechanism of cell communication that is used by all animals: the Notch signaling pathway. The core components of the Notch signaling pathway are well known, and are encoded by related genes in all animal species. Work from several laboratories has shown that Notch signaling is tightly regulated throughout development, as either too much or too little signaling causes severe developmental defects, including several ...
