Environmental health scientist Richard Pilsner, with developmental geneticist Jesse Mager (both M2M), recently received a two-year, $375,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate whether sperm from adult mice exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals is linked to health effects in the offspring.

Neurobiologist Eric Bittman, biology, has received a two-year, $420,000 exploratory grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke to study how the master clock in the brain talks to other neurons and how it controls a variety of organs including the heart, lung and liver.

Stating that IALS can serve as a springboard to creating a “Cambridge West mini-hub” that will become a biotechnology engine for the region.

Inspired by proteins that can recognize dangerous microbes and debris, then engulf such material to get rid of it, polymer scientists led by Todd Emrick at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have developed new polymer-stabilized droplet carriers that can identify and encapsulate nanoparticles for transport in a cell, a kind of “pick up and drop off” service that represents the first successful translation of this biological process in a materials context.

The purpose of the UManage Center Pilot Research grant program is to provide funding for pilot research projects that address the self-management of sleep or fatigue using handheld or wearable sensors and/or other advanced technologies. Pilot projects support studies on the self-management of fatigue and sleep in persons of all age groups with chronic and acute disorders or multiple chronic conditions.
