NIH-funded vaccine for West Nile Virus enters human clinical trials
A clinical trial of a new investigational vaccine designed to protect against West Nile Virus infection will be sponsored by the NIAID. The experimental vaccine was discovered and developed by scientists at the Oregon National Primate Research Center at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. The scientists were funded with a $7.2 million grant from NIAID, awarded in 2009. The new vaccine is being tested in a Phase 1 clinical trial at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

Is phosphate the next sodium?
Is phosphate the next sodium -- a once seemingly benign and common food additive now linked to heart disease and death? A new AHA grant will fund three Northwestern research projects examining potential heart damage caused by excess dietary phosphate, particularly in African-Americans, who have disparately high rates of heart disease and may consume diets high in processed foods. Scientists want to find new ways to prevent and treat heart failure and build evidence for regulating phosphate in foods.

Cutting big data down to a usable size
Next-generation DNA sequencing technologies have turned the vision of precision medicine into a plausible reality, but also threaten to overwhelm computing infrastructures with unprecedented volumes of data. A recent $1.3 million award from the National Institutes of Health will allow researchers at the University of Illinois and Stanford to help address this challenge by developing novel data compression strategies.
