Investigating mechanisms driving acute kidney injury arising from heart surgery and sepsis

A team of researchers and clinicians at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health are investigating ways to reduce the incidence of kidney injury resulting from heart surgery and sepsis. Acute kidney injury is when our kidneys suddenly stop working. This happens in up to 30% of patients after heart surgery. Up to

Cancer Biology and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): The Gold Standard of Soft Tissue Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a technique that utilizes magnetic fields to create images of the anatomy and the physiological processes within the body. Specifically, MRI, the gold standard in soft tissue imaging, offers researchers the ability to distinctly contrast between normal and pathological tissue. When it comes to the strengths of MRI in

A versatile tool for 𝘪𝘯 𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘳𝘰 vascular research

Vascular function can be assessed in vitro using a myograph. Benchtop wire myograph systems consist of an organ bath, mounting wire or prongs, a micrometer, and a force transducer and amplifier to measure tension development in the tissue. This simple set-up is used in many fields of research, including pharmacology and vascular physiology. In

Is 1 tesla enough: How low-field MRI is permitting more preclinical researchers to utilize this gold standard technique than ever before

In my day to day interactions, I come across numerous researchers who are not able to fully utilize MRI systems as they would like or cannot see themselves using this technology even though it could immensely help their research. The reasons for this are numerous but often fall into 1 of 3 categories. Price

The Importance of Cohousing During Telemetry Studies

Research animals must be housed under conditions that ensure their physiologic and behavioral needs are met.  These conditions influence animal well-being and the quality of data obtained throughout a study. Facilities are often designed with many of these factors in mind, including temperature and humidity control, lighting, noise and vibration.  However, there are other
