UCLA Amgen Scholars Program

UCLA Amgen Scholars Program An Undergraduate Summer Research Program in Science and Biotechnology The Amgen Scholars Program is a national program to increase learning and networking opportunities for students committed to pursuing a career in science or engineering. During summer 2014, UCLA will host 24 Amgen Scholars. 12 will be undergraduates from UCLA and 12 will be from other 4-year colleges and universities. 2014 PROGRAM DATES: 10 WEEK PROGRAM Sunday, JUNE 22 (move-in) - Friday AUGUST 29, 2014 (move-out) Opening Reception: Monday, JUNE 23 Application Deadline: February 3, 2014 Students interested in summer research in any area of biomedical science, chemistry, bioengineering or chemical engineering are encouraged to apply. Students will be paired with a UCLA faculty mentor if the student does not already have a mentor at UCLA. Please visit the Amgen Faculty web site for information on over 100 potential mentors on the UCLA campus. In addition to working full time in the laboratory for 10 weeks, the program features: Weekly luncheons where students can meet and discuss science with invited faculty speakers Weekly workshops on such topics as applying to graduate school, how to write a personal statement and how to give a research presentation Three- day Biotechnology Symposium sponsored by the Amgen Corporation held in Los Angeles GRE test preparation Access to UCLA campus facilities Social events to network with other summer researchers RE...

Artificial intelligence is already widely entrenched in healthcare industry, so the question should not be, "Will AI happen or not?" said David Houlding, CISSP, CIPP, principal healthcare lead, at Microsoft, in an interview with MD+DI. “It's very much 'What tasks will AI help with, and what will it do and what will it not do?’ ” he continued. “I think we're still learning some of that, but it's largely a proven technology, not just for healthcare providers but for payers, for pharmaceuticals, for life sciencesâ&#...

Authors: Marques B, Couto J, Lemos MC, Rodrigues F Abstract Juxtaglomerular tumours are rare causes of secondary hypertension. They typically present with difficult-to-manage hypertension, hypokalemia, hyperreninemia and secondary hyperaldosteronism. The authors describe a clinical case of a 45 years old female patient, with personal history of difficult-to-manage hypertension and hypokalemia since age 35, medicated with four types of anti-hypertensive agents. An analytical study was performed, which revealed secondary hyperaldosteronism [aldosterone 44.3 ng/dL (4 - 28 ng/dL), renin> 1000 mIU/mL (4.4 - 46.2 mIU/...

Publication date: Available online 19 November 2019Source: Materials Today: ProceedingsAuthor(s): B. Nageswara Rao, N. SatyanarayanaAbstractSamarium oxide (Sm2O3) coated LiCoO2 particles were synthesized using resin coating process. The prepared samples were subjected to characterization using thermogravimetry analysis (TGA)/differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and cyclic voltammetry (CV) techniques. The formation of phase pure LiCoO2 was confirmed from XRD studies. No diffraction peak was observed for Sm2O3 phas...

In this work, quaternary ammonium compounds loaded on silica nanopollens (QAC@SNP) were developed to modify polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane for mitigating biofouling. The modified membrane (M-Si-Q) by QAC@SNP demonstrated efficient antibacterial efficiency against E. coli (inhibition rate ∼98.2%) and S. aureus (in...

Nugroho, Ahmad Kusumaatmaja, Roto RotoAbstractAnalytical parameters including sensitivity in the QCM sensing system are critical to understand its sensing mechanism. We investigated the QCM analytical parameters after the QCM electrode surface was modified with polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) nanofiber for primary alcohols’ vapor detection. The PVAc nanofibers were prepared by electrospinning method and were observed using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The modified QCM sensin...

Publication date: Available online 19 November 2019Source: Carbohydrate PolymersAuthor(s): Chao Ling, Lamei GuoAbstractA novel formaldehyde-free and halogen-free flame retardant (FR), HBPOPN, was synthesized under solvent-free conditions and applied on cotton fabric to improve its durability. The reactive groups of HBPOPN could react with cellulose to form covalent bonds. The limit oxygen index (LOI) value of 160 g/L HBPOPN-treated cotton was 42.0% and the LOI value was still 29.3% after 50 laundering cycles (LCs). The entire vertical flammability test showed no after-flame or after-glow time. Moreover, the cone calorimetr...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPositron emission tomography (PET) combined with computed tomography (CT) has proven useful as a cancer screening technique in patients with inflammatory myopathy, mainly dermatomyositis. In this review, we focus on advances in this direction and other potential applications of PET/CT in patients with inflammatory myopathy.Recent FindingsCancer screening by PET/CT seems suitable and cost-effective in patients with myositis. It has also shown value as a hybrid technique for diagnosing myositis versus controls and could be of interest for differentiating between polymyositis and sporadic inclusion bo...
