Wayne State College of Nursing receives $2.6M HRSA grant to expand BSN training in Detroit

Wayne State University Division of Research

The need for nurses who practice on community-based primary care and public health teams is growing. As health care moves from hospital settings to the community, these teams will need RNs working to the full scope of their license, particularly in an urban setting. Wayne State University's College of Nursing recently received a grant from HRSA to address these training gaps in Detroit and beyond.

Brain Scientists Identify ‘Cross Talk’ Between Neurons That Control Touch in Mice

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Scientists report they have uncovered a previously overlooked connection between neurons in two distinct areas of the mammalian brain. The neurons, they say, control the sense of touch, and their experiments in mice offer insights into mapping brain circuitry that is responsible for normal and abnormal perception and movements linked to touch.

Genome’s Dark Matter Offers Clues to Major Challenge in Prostate Cancer

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Researchers at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center identified a novel gene they named ARLNC1 that controls signals from the androgen receptor, a key player in prostate cancer. Knocking down this long non-coding RNA in mice led to cancer cell death, suggesting this may be a key target for future therapies.
