INBRE Undergraduate Transition Scholar Receives Award at Western INBRE/COBRE Conference

Wyoming INBRE Undergraduate Transition Scholar Josh Sharpe recieved the award for the outstanding poster presentation in the cellular and molecular biology category at the recent Western INBRE/COBRE meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii. Shape's poster titled "Structural-functional studies of TSPO" co-authored by Tom Moulton (another INBRE Transition Scholar), Nora Susanti and Krysztina Varga, reports results of their investigations that have determined that the 18 kDa human translocator protein TPSO is suitable for solid state NMR structure determination.  This opens the door for development of high resolution structural studies of TPSO that will be transformative for drug design to combat heart disease, diabetic neuropathies, and other diseases. Posters submitted by faculty, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduates were considered for the award.

UW Joins NIH IDeA Funded Regional Health Research Partnership

The University of Wyoming is partnering with 12 other universities across seven states in the Mountain West to put clinical research into practice to address regional health concerns including access to care, cancer, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular and infectious diseases. A five-year, $20.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) NIGMS IDeA program announced this week will create a research network called the Clinical and Translational Research Infrastructure Network (CTR-IN). Member institutions will share resources and expertise to support the development of bench-to-bedside research through a series of individual pilot grants. Read More

INBRE Thematic Investigator John Oakey Receives NSF Career Award

Wyoming INBRE Thematic Investigator John Oakey has received a prestigious National Science Foundation Career Award. Oakey, an assistant professor in Chemical Engineering,  has been reciving INBRE support for his project "High Throughput Screening of β-Cell Response to Encapsulation". The NSF award will provide funding for a project that focuses on biomaterials and cell types that are appropriate for the regeneration of structural tissues, such as cartilage and bone, but will ultimately be applicable to a variety of therapeutic scenarios.
