2015 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program

2015 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program The competition is now open for the 2015 Urology Care Foundation Research Scholars Program. There will be at least ten funding opportunities available, including four awards (three 2-year awards and one 1-year award) that are available for research in neurotoxins and other areas related to neurourological conditions of the bladder. These awards are made possible through the generous support of The Allergan Foundation. The Society for Urologic Oncology (SUO) will also sponsor the first SUO Research Scholar Award in Urologic Oncology. The AUA Mid-Atlantic Section, AUA South Central Section, and the AUA Southeastern Section will also sponsor 2015 Research Scholars. The Joseph Segura Scholarship in Endourology and Stone Management is available in 2015 to domestic and international investigators performing basic, translational or clinical research in urolithiasis, endourology and stone management. The Urology Care Foundation will also offer an unrestricted one- or two-year award in urology research. The application deadline is September 4, 2014. A letter of intent is encouraged, but not required, and is due on July 18, 2014.

PekguleryuzAbstractIt was observed that low level of yttrium (Y) has a modifying effect on the Mg17Al12 phase in the binary Mg-6wt%Al casting alloy. Scanning/transmission electron microscopy, mechanical testing and thermodynamic calculations were employed to understand the modification mechanism. It is found that Y at trace level refines the β-Mg17Al12 phase leading to increased tensile elongation and compressive strain to fracture. The refinement effect is lost with further increase in the Y le...

BOPP was first, tested for its antioxidant capacity, monitored through the β-carotene bleaching, DPPH radical-scavenging and reducing power activities. BOPP and gelatin blending was found to reduce the wettability of the gelatin film, whereas it slightly reduced its transparency....

In the beginning, there were single-cell bacteria. They were the only life on earth for billions of years, then larger cells evolved, then multicellular organisms, and then plants and animals. But the bacteria never went away, and all organisms, including us humans, have had to learn to live with them. Today, the lessons they are teaching us could change the trajectory of human health for generations. When bacteria were first discovered more than three centuries ago, most attention was on the ones we fought, which caused diseases like cholera, typhoid and tuberculosis. Through vaccines and antibiotics, we have made amazing...

If you’ve been diagnosed with kidney stones (urolithiasis), you may have several options for treatment. These include medical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL), and ureteroscopy. A brief anatomy of the urinary tract The urinary tract includes kidneys (two organs that filter waste and extra water from the blood) ureters (two tubes bringing urine from each kidney to the bladder) bladder (organ that collects urine) urethra (a single tube through which urine in the bladder passes out of the body). The evaluation for kidney stones If your symptoms suggest kidney...

This study was carried out in accordance with approval of the Melbourne Health and Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research's Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number: 2013.081). All subjects gave written informed consent for participation and publication. Results and Discussion TGF-β signaling in NK cells is associated with: phosphorylation in SMAD2 and 3, inhibition of IL-15-induced metabolism/proliferation, simultaneous downregulation of CD44, CD49e, and Eomes, and upregulation of CD16 and CD49a expression (7, 10). SMAD family member 4 (SMAD4) belongs to the SMAD family of transcription...

Discussion There are numerous microbial communities inhabited in the human body, which is critical to human health. The relationship between human microbiome and diseases received much attention from both medical and bioinformatics community recently. However, traditional methods to detect their association is costly and labor-intensive. Thus, we proposed here a new computational model called NBLPIHMDA to infer potential microbe-disease associations. NBLPIHMDA first combined known microbe-disease associations in HMDAD and the Gaussian interaction profile kernel similarity to construct disease similarity network and microb...

Conclusion Human microbiome is normal flora for humans, which has been proved to be of symbiotic relationship with humans and harmless to humans. If the microbes that breed in the human body become “unhealthy,” it will definitely affect the host's physical condition. People are continuing to explore the pathologic relationship between microorganisms and the human body through high-throughput sequencing technologies and analysis systems. However, it is a pity that their pathogenesis cannot be fully understood as yet. Considering that relying only on conventional experimental methods is time-consuming an...

Follow me on Twitter @RobShmerling Ever wonder what other people are wondering about? I know I do. So, here are the top 10 health searches in Google for 2017. And just so you don’t have to look each one up, I’ve provided a brief answer. You’re welcome. 1.  What causes hiccups? I was surprised this one made it to the top 10 list of health searches. Maybe this search is common because hiccups are as mysterious as they are universal. I’ve written about hiccups before, but let’s just say the cause in any individual person is rarely known or knowable. Then again, the reason hiccups stop is als...

When was the last time you went in for your annual checkup? In honor of Men's Health Month, I want to discuss the importance of paying attention to your body and visiting your primary care physician on a regular basis. If you're healthy, a yearly visit might be sufficient but if you have a family history of any disease, have a pre-existing condition, or have suffered an injury, you may have to follow up with a doctor or specialist more often. A doctor's visit is as much a part of a healthy lifestyle as clean eating and consistent exercise. If you have any issues or symptoms, especially any of the below, don't be afraid to ...
