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

Combating time and space issues in labs today: How a simple microscope is changing the way scientists do research

Combating time and space issue in labs todays: How a simple microscope is changing how scientists do research      All researchers today, from grad students to principle investigators, are lacking 2 key factors that were widely available a generation ago. Today, both overall time and lab space have become a commodity in the research

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

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

Cancer biology and High-Frequency Ultrasound: non-invasive identification, visualization, and quantification in a wide variety of preclinical tumor models

Ultrasound has become a widely used preclinical imaging modality that can be used to visualize a variety of internal structures within small animal models with high resolution (down to 30µm). This provides researchers with primary structural information in real-time allowing for the non-invasive quantification of organ/tumor parameters in both two- and three-dimensions, as well
