Newswise: International Collaboration for Scientific Training Launched Between The Wistar Institute and Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands

International Collaboration for Scientific Training Launched Between The Wistar Institute and Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands

Wistar Institute

Wistar and Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) formalized a memorandum of understanding between the two institutions to explore a postdoctoral training exchange program in immunology, cancer research and vaccine biology. The Wistar-Schoemaker International Postdoctoral Fellowship would bring recent Ph.D. graduates trained at LUMC to Wistar to advance their research education under the mentorship of cutting-edge biomedical research leaders.

E-cigarettes Boost Infection Risk by Blocking Action of Immune Cells

American Physiological Society (APS)

A new study finds that e-cigarette vapor weakens the mobility and function of immune cells designed to fight infection. This reduced ability may increase the risk of bacterial illnesses in people who vape. The research is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology—Cell Physiology.

Johns Hopkins Launches Hub for Immunology and Engineering Research

Johns Hopkins Medicine

If the saying that two heads are better than one is true, then joining two fields of science may be better than one to spur more advances in medicine. With a $6.7 million, five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers will bring together immunologists, oncologists and biomedical engineers in an effort to build new tools to treat cancer and autoimmune diseases.

Newswise: Research points to possible target to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF

Research points to possible target to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF

University of Alabama at Birmingham

In a study of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, or IPF, recruited macrophages with increased mevalonate-pathway flux were able induce lung fibrosis in mice without any prior lung injury. In humans, three hallmarks of the fibrosis mechanism were also found in bronchoalveolar cells from IPF patients.
