R & D Activities at Small Companies Yet to Recover from 2008 – 09 Great Recession

Showing how business research and development responds to economic fluctuations — such as the recent recession induced by the coronavirus pandemic — is an important use of data from the National Center for Science and Engineering Research ( NCSES ) . To that end, this InfoChart uses the most recently available data ( 2018 ) to examine the recovery of U.S. R&D activities from the 2008 – 09 Great Recession and how the impacts differ based on company size. Data are from the NCSES survey Business Research and Development.

COVID-19, caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is responsible for a global pandemic that can cause severe infections in children, especially those with comorbid conditions. Here, we report a case of a child with a newly diagnosed medulloblastoma, Fanconi Anemia, and SARS-CoV-2 infection. Through multidisciplinary care coordination and meticulous planning, we were able to safely initiate this patient’s oncology care and implement a long-term model to address the patient’s care. This approach could be replicated with any newly diagnosed pediatric patient that requires monitoring...

This pandemic has challenged the world in ways we never would have imagined. It has changed the way we socialize, the way we parent, the way we work. And, of course, we know it has challenged the research community across the globe. On this blog a few months ago my colleague, Carrie Wolinetz, poignantly describes her experience parenting during the pandemic. Whether you are a parent or not, we continually see evidence of the personal and professional challenges the community is experiencing. (See survey results on the impact of the pandemic from NIH and others, many of which are listed in this report from the  Associa...

Background: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has recently led to worldwide research efforts to identify subjects at greater risk of developing more severe illness: overall obesity displayed a strong correlation with critical illness and major severity of COVID-19 manifestations.Summary: Obesity and metabolic disorders are closely linked to chronic systemic inflammation. The adipose tissue constitutes a source of cytokines, which configure a low-grade inflammation and a hypercoagulation status; in addition, diagnosis and care of obese patients are often complicated by excess weight and ventilation difficulti...

Various SARS-CoV-2 like viruses have been isolated from bats in China, Thailand, and Japan, but none have a spike protein that can bind ACE2 and allow entry into human cells. Sampling of bats in Laos has now revealed the presence of such viruses. The genome of a virus called RaTG13, from Rhinolophus affinis bats in […]
