May 2017

Materials scientist Trisha Andrew is director of wearable electronics at the Center for Personalized Health Monitoring (CPHM) and assistant professor in the Chemistry department.  In a new paper this month, she and colleagues outline how they have invented a way to apply breathable, pliable, metal-free electrodes to fabric and off-the-shelf clothing so it feels good to the touch and also transports enough electricity to power small electronics.

Scott Garman, biochemistry and molecular biology and M2M, was one of five Public Engagement Project fellows who visited the State House May 9 to share their research and explore synergies in meetings with 16 state representatives, senators and other policy leaders.

Sandra Petersen, veterinary and animal sciences and M2M, recently received a two-year, $438,000 exploratory grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to further her studies of a little-known gene, CUG RNA-binding protein 2 (CUGBP2), which affects sex-specific development processes in the brain and has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, neural cell death and reproductive disorder.

Sandra Petersen, veterinary and animal sciences and M2M, recently traveled to Warsaw, Poland, to serve on a panel of international experts that reviewed large project grants for the Poland International Research Agenda Programme.

Geng-Lin Li, biology and M2M, recently was awarded a five-year, $1.6 million grant by the National Institutes of Health to study auditory signal processing in the inner ear. His findings will expand basic understanding of hearing and could lead to better hearing protection.

John Clark, professor of veterinary and animal sciences and M2M, is corresponding author.

The article “Expansion of the Knockdown Resistance Frequency Map for Human Head Lice (Phthiraptera: Pediculidae) in the United States Using Quantitative Sequencing” correlates the loss of efficacy of anti-lice treatments with certain mutations in the lice.

Peter Chien, biochemistry and molecular biology and M2M, received the 2017 CNS Outstanding Faculty Award for Research-Early Career.
