HSC To Conduct National Diabetes StudySupported by a $2.8-million, seven-year grant, the UNM Health Sciences Center was recently chosen as one of 36 National Institutes of Health (NIH) specialty sites across the country as a participant in the Glycemia Reduction Approaches to Diabetes: A Comparative Effectiveness, or GRADE, study.
Dimensions and Structure Matter in Decoding Infectious DiseasesFor decades, the detection of infectious diseases has been limited by how data are analyzed. This new research explores the possibility that medical data might have different structural levels, which involve several dimensions. The new method explores rotating three-dimensional (3D) data structures instead of analyzing data on a flat format – uni-dimensional (2D) data as reported in any table.
Autophagy, or Cellular Housecleaning, Controls TB In-VivoResearchers at the University of New Mexico have succeeded in using the body’s own built-in immune system to suppress the worldwide scourge Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) and associated inflammation, which also might impact Crohn’s and other inflammatory diseases. By directing the body’s autophagy, or “self-eating,” process in-vivo, researchers have increased control of TB and its associated pathology.
