first_img[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s the two most recent Premier League Champions that go head to head at 5.30pm – Leicester v Chelsea.The two sides are undoubtedly in contrasting form – Chelsea heading the table and with the chance to pull seven points clear and Leicester lingering just six points above the relegation zone with only Hull in the bottom three improving their fortunes in the earlier kick offs.Much of the pre-match news has concerned Costa and the fact he is missing tonight’s match after his well documented spat with the club.Chelsea failed to create a new league record for consecutive wins when coming up short against Spurs against White Hart Lane but it’s still been an incredible run of form and Leicester have only scored one goal in their last three league games and have made six changes for tonight.Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte said: “The Leicester game is very important for us to restart to win.“Leicester are the champions from last season, they have a lot of good players with good quality, they have impressed me.“I consider them a really good team with good players, strong players, players with talent and technique, a good mix.

first_imgAddThis Jade Boyd Rice University 713-348-6778 [email protected] First quantum grant to fund stem cell repair of damage from stroke Team from Rice, Baylor College of Medicine aims for ‘neuro-vascular regeneration’ The National Institutes of Health has named researchers at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and Rice University in Houston as the first and only recipients of the inaugural Quantum Grant for their international research initiative to regenerate damaged brain cells and blood vessels for the treatment of stroke. The three-year, $2.9 million grant, funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), part of the NIH, will support research on neuro-vascular regeneration, which will make new brain tissues in the laboratory. The new brain tissue is planned to have its own blood supply to allow it to be placed into the damaged brains of stroke patients where it will provide a source of neural and vascular cells that will continue to develop and differentiate, repairing the injured tissue in the process. “This project represents an integrated effort among leading scientists who have jointly authored numerous publications, mentored students and postdoctoral fellows, as well as collaborated on Bioengineering Research Partnership grants,” said Jennifer West, who is leading the project’s efforts at Rice. West is the Isabel C. Cameron Professor of Bioengineering and director of Rice’s Institute of Biosciences and Bioengineering . The newly created NIBIB Quantum Grants Program supports researchers in the development of innovative biomedical technologies in hopes of making a significant impact in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Funding was awarded to only one grant application out of more than 100 submitted. Karen Hirschi, deputy director of the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center within the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at BCM, is the principal investigator for the “Neuro-Vascular Regeneration” project, which will be conducted in conjunction with an interdisciplinary team of researchers at Rice, the National Institute for Medical Research in London, and King’s College in London . “Each member of our team has made significant contributions to the advancement of their respective fields of research and will now be able to devote substantial efforts to integrating their work and developing methods of using neuro-vascular regeneration to help stroke victims,” Hirschi said. The project team members come from diverse and complementary areas of expertise in developmental neurobiology and vascular biology, stem cell biology, genetics, biomedical imaging, tissue engineering, and clinical cellular therapies. Spanning fields of science that include cell and molecular biology, animal models of disease, and hopefully human clinical trials, the “Neuro-Vascular Regeneration” project falls in line with the NIH roadmap for the development of multi-disciplinary and translational science. The BCM team also includes project co-developer Mary Dickinson, assistant professor of molecular physiology and biophysics at BCM; Dr. Thomas Zwaka, assistant professor of molecular and cellular biology in the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at BCM; and Malcolm Brenner, professor of medicine and pediatrics and director of the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at BCM. Robin Lovell-Badge, head of the division of developmental genetics at the National Institute for Medical Research in London, serves as co-principal investigator of the project. Other investigators in London include Jack Price and Mike Modo, both of the Centre for the Cellular Basis of Behaviour at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College.

He points to the growing concentration of wealth among the richest Americans as the source of economic instability.Reich will speak at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy Oct. 12 about his new book, “Aftershock: The Next Economy and America’s Future.” The event will begin at 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.Reich, who served in President Bill Clinton’s cabinet and is currently a professor of public policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley, noted that the last time in U.S. history when wealth was so highly concentrated at the top was in 1928, just before the Great Depression. While this disparity sometimes creates great booms, it is usually followed by even worse busts. Reich said that unless steps are taken to address income disparity, the country will inevitably face more and deeper economic crashes in the future.Reich’s book will be available for sale, provided courtesy of Brazos Bookstore.The event will be held in Baker Hall’s Doré Commons on the Rice campus, 6100 Main St. For directions, go to https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/2023/IMG11026.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more
