The Laboratory of Lung Inflammation, Department of Pathobiology, College of Veterinary Medicine at Auburn University have opening for highly motivated PhD candidate/ Graduate Research Assistant to work on NIH-funded research project in the area of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
Common barberry is a native hedgerow plant throughout the UK. However, in the late 19th and early 20th century it was removed from many sites as it was linked to deleterious effects on wheat crops caused by stem rust infection.
Throughout history, disease epidemics have been ubiquitous in agriculture. Yellow rust is a major fungal disease of wheat. In recent years, new isolates of the pathogen have caused wide-scale epidemics in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
Despite major advances in imaging technologies, surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and targeted therapy of cancer in the last few decades, pancreatic cancer remains as one of the most aggressive and fatal types of human cancer.
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
