MTRAC Awards Spark Biomedical Innovation at Wayne State University

Three Wayne State University (WSU) research teams were recently awarded funding from Wayne State’s Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization (MTRAC) program. The goal is to accelerate the translation and commercialization of their innovative biomedical technologies by providing the resources to validate technical and market opportunities. The MTRAC projects will be supported by $1.1 million in awards from the Michigan Strategic Fund, which is administered by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), with matching funds from Wayne State.

New Approaches to Difficult Drug Targets: The Phosphatase Story

DiscOct2017_NoCropsFINAL_1.jpg

Discovering new drugs has never been easy and some potential drug targets have historically been viewed as too challenging and thus off limits for prosecution. In a new SLAS Discovery review, authors John S. Lazo et al. of the University of Virginia reflect on the nature of protein tyrosine phosphatases and explores reasons why these enzymes have been eschewed by drug hunters, and how the landscape is beginning to change.

JHU Undergrads’ ‘Nasal Relief’ is Finalist in Collegiate Inventors Competition

A Johns Hopkins student team that wants to help people breathe easier has scored a coveted finalist spot in the 2017 Collegiate Inventors Competition. The students devised a simple, discreet device to open obstructed nostrils, a common problem that can cause snoring and other sleep disruptions, as well as exercising difficulties.
