Newswise: Internships fuel research for engineering students from Puerto Rico

Internships fuel research for engineering students from Puerto Rico

Sandia National Laboratories

The Consortium for Integrating Energy Systems in Engineering and Science Education, CIESESE, internship program, sponsored by the National Nuclear Security Administration, connects engineering students from five Hispanic-serving institutions, including UPRM, with research at Sandia National Laboratories and the National Energy Technology Laboratory. The program has recently been extended through next summer.

FSU Research: Microwave treatment is an inexpensive way to clean heavy metals from treated sewage

Florida State University

A team of Florida State University researchers studying new methods to remove toxic heavy metals from biosolids — the solid waste left over after sewage treatment — found the key is a brief spin through a microwave. The method removed three times the amount of lead from biosolids compared to conventional means and could reduce the total cost of processing by more than 60 percent, making it a possible engineering solution to help produce fertilizer and allow more people to live with clean soil and water.

Newswise: Mouse Study Shows Nerve Signaling Pathway Critical to Healing Fractures

Mouse Study Shows Nerve Signaling Pathway Critical to Healing Fractures

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Sticks and stones may break one’s bones, but healing them requires the production of a protein signal that stimulates the generation, growth and spread of vital nerve cells, or neurons, throughout the injured area. That’s the finding of a recent Johns Hopkins Medicine study that used mice to demonstrate what likely takes place during human fracture repair as well.

Study Finds Little Increased Risk of Injury in High-Intensity Functional Training Program

Mayo Clinic

High-intensity group workout classes are increasingly popular at fitness centers. While research has shown that these workouts can have cardiovascular and other benefits, few studies have been conducted on whether they lead to more injuries.

More Than a Watchdog

Harvard Medical School

Study in mice shows the nervous system not only detects the presence of Salmonella in the gut but actively stops the organism from infecting the body Nerves in the gut prevent Salmonella infection by shutting the cellular gates that allow bacteria to invade the intestine and spread beyond it As a second line of defense, gut neurons help avert Salmonella invasion by maintaining the levels of key protective microbes in the gut Findings reveal prominent role for nervous system in infection protection and regulation of immunity
