Computational model uncovers progression of HIV infection in brain

University of Alberta research team successfully uncovered the progression of HIV infection in the brain using a new mathematical model. The team is utilizing this model to develop a nasal spray to administer ¬†antiretroviral medication effectively. Their research is published in Journal of Neurovirology. Research was done by PhD student Weston Roda and Prof. Michael… Continue reading Computational model uncovers progression of HIV infection in brain

ResistoMap developed to track world wide microbial drug resistance

Scientists from the Federal Research and Clinical Center of Physical-Chemical Medicine, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and Data Laboratory have created the ResistoMap, an interactive visualization of gut resistome. Gut resistome is human gut microbiota potential to resist antibiotics and includes the set of all antibiotic resistance genes in the genomes of human… Continue reading ResistoMap developed to track world wide microbial drug resistance

Dutch universities collaborate on big data in health to understand disease process

Patients with the same illness often receive the same treatment, even if the cause of the illness is different for each person. This represents a new step towards ultimately being able to offer every patient more personalized treatment. Six Dutch universities are combining forces to chart the different disease processes for a range of common… Continue reading Dutch universities collaborate on big data in health to understand disease process
