NIH funds research to detect tuberculosis progression in people with HIV
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death worldwide among people infected with HIV. But as yet, no test can reliably show when latent (inactive) TB infections in people with HIV starts progressing to active -- and potentially fatal -- TB disease. Now, a researcher at Albert Einstein College of Medicine has received a five-year, $3.7 million National Institutes of Health grant to identify biomarkers that signal an increase in activity by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes TB, in people with HIV.

Nanoscope Technologies awarded Audacious Goal Initiative grant by National Eye Institute
Nanoscope Technologies has been awarded an Audacious Goal Initiative grant by the National Eye Institute for exploring novel laser based therapeutic gene delivery to the eye. Nanoscope has developed laser based gene delivery and imaging platform to analyze expression of highly-photosensitive Opsin. This will allow retinal stimulation for vision-restoration in patients with RP and other genetic retinal photo-degenerative diseases. RP-patients loose vision in the periphery and laser delivery can accurately treat these peripheral areas.
