More than 25 members of the advisory council for the College of Science at the University of Notre Dame have contributed over $11 million to endow the Science and Engineering Scholars Program in honor of Mary E. Galvin, the William K. Warren Foundation Dean of the college.
Molecular parasitologist Angana Mukherjee is excited to work with the Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases (CRND) to study the genetics of antimalarial drug resistance, in her new position as an assistant research professor in the Department of Biological Sciences.
Mary E. Galvin, the William K. Warren Foundation Dean of the College of Science at the University of Notre Dame since 2015, recently announced she will step down from the position effective December 31, 2020.…
Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics has become the Institute for Precision Health, a re-envisioning that engages scientists, engineers, and clinical practitioners in research, education, and entrepreneurship programs that advance individualized health and wellness.
The Warren Center for Drug Discovery invites new proposals for projects that are associated with drug discovery. In particular, projects associated with small molecule synthesis (libraries or molecular probes), hit validation, lead optimization, mid-sized scale up, assay development, protein purification, and ADMET screening. Any disease areas will be considered. Collaborative opportunities...
The Iquitos trial was part of a multi-year effort led by scientists at the University of Notre Dame to determine the protective efficacy of spatial repellents to prevent human infection with pathogens that cause diseases such as malaria, Zika and dengue, spread through mosquito bites.
In newly published research in the journal Cell, researchers showed that one type of cell important for immunity, called a myeloid cell, can suppress the immune response — which has the effect of allowing breast cancer cells to metastasize to the brain to form secondary tumor cells there.
As part of the statewide partnership, Notre Dame and IDP partners can securely share data and best practices that benefits research and other projects, components, and reports for datasets, and shares the results of research projects relevant to the goals of the IDP.
Any member of the Notre Dame campus community can be selected for surveillance testing and some are tested frequently.
Katharine White has been granted a highly competitive Director's New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health.
A team of researchers from the University of Notre Dame, Johns Hopkins University, Ohio State University and the University of Florida has identified networks of genes that regulate the process responsible for determining whether neurons will regenerate in certain animals, such as zebrafish.
More than 100 million infections of Zika virus within Central and South America and the Caribbean went undetected between 2015 and 2018, according to a new study.
Starting in October, each Monday from 6 to 7 p.m. EST, coronavirus experts will discuss a new aspect or angle of the pandemic, such as epidemiology, food security, public health, racial inequities, testing, vaccines, and evidence used to inform decisions about opening schools, athletics, and businesses.
A new study by researchers at the University of Notre Dame cautions that K-12 schools reopening to full capacity with little to no compliance of safety measures such as face masks could drive infections up to an estimated 2.49 million in Indiana alone, with more than 9,000 deaths by the end of...
Christopher Patzke joined Notre Dame this August as the John M. and Mary Jo Boler Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and the Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare & Neglected Diseases. His neurobiology research focuses on the genetic makeup of the human brain at the cellular level.
On Tuesday, September 15, 2020, Notre Dame Research will host a virtual Core Facility Fair from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EST. The event is open to students, postdoctoral scholars, faculty, and staff.
Fluorescence imaging has been a boon to research and medicine because of its ability to examine affected areas noninvasively. But the dyes used for these purposes have their disadvantages, and as resolution needs have grown stronger, the stakes for accuracy have increased exponentially. …
The Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics research center announced new awards to enable faculty researchers to pivot or expand their existing research to address the detection, diagnosis, treatment, or prognosis of COVID-19 viral infections and related serious medical conditions.
T-cells, which hunt for traces of disease within other cells, work by identifying fragments of outsider proteins on a diseased cell’s surface and then go in for the literal kill. With cancer, some of the mutated fragments of outsider proteins, called neoepitopes, can be recognized by T-cells and are ideal...
The Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility has been embedded within the University of Notre Dame campus for over ten years working closely with students and faculty alike at the forefront of research to develop and explore critical questions that create and explore opportunity for health, innovation, and advancement.…
