PCORI approves Group Health for $2.8 million research funding award
Treating hypertension is crucial to help prevent heart attacks and strokes. But treatment can harm people without hypertension. And it can be tricky to establish whether a person has 'the silent killer.' Everyone's blood pressure rises and falls dramatically during a day -- notably often rising in medical offices ('white coat hypertension'). That's why it's so important to find a reliable way to confirm a diagnosis of hypertension. BP-CHECK will compare three ways.

Energy Department grants $2.5M for biorefinery waste use, renewable bioproduct study
The US Department of Energy granted $2.5 million to Texas A&M AgriLife Research to find ways to use biorefinery waste to make new, marketable products. 'It is said you can make anything but money out of lignin. Yet, that is the majority of what's left over in the biorefinery plants,' said Dr. Joshua Yuan, a biotechnologist and lead scientist on the project. 'Until we resolve this problem, biorefinery is not going to become economically viable.'
