Quotes

...professor in the Department of Human and Molecular Genetics and member of the VCU Institute of Molecular Medicine (VIMM) at VCU School of Medicine. "Blocking AEG-1 using drugs or other methods may potentially lead to new treatments for a variety of inflammation-associated diseases."
..." But a reviewer nixed Heard’s little joke. "Although I appreciated the levity of the reference," he wrote, "I think it is not appropriate for a scientific publication."
"Similar in concept to the full-scale crash-test systems used by the automotive industry, the bench-top system will be used to apply impact conditions to populations of brain cells grown in the lab" Wolchok said
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The multiscale, hierarchically patterned topography would be useful for the design of functional biomaterial scaffolds to potentiate NSC therapeutic efficacy."
