Deletion of a Stem Cell Factor Promotes TBI Recovery in Mice

esearchers found that conditional deletion of Sox2 – the gene encoding the SOX2 stem cell transcription factor – and the associated dampening of astrocyte reactivity appear to promote functional recovery, including behavioral recovery, after traumatic brain injury, said Dr. Zhang, a W.W. Caruth, Jr. Scholar in Biomedical Research.

Texas Tech University Formalizes Agreement With Amarillo College

Texas Tech University and Amarillo College signed an institution-to-institution memorandum of understanding (MOU) today (Nov. 16) to enable the success of community college transfer students. The need for the MOU arose from a meeting between Texas Tech and Amarillo College to further develop programs for students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) areas at Amarillo College who intend to transfer to Texas Tech, specifically those who intend to get a degree through Texas Tech’s College of Agriculture Sciences & Natural Resources’ Department of Plant and Soil Science.
