To kill cancer cells is the ultimate objective of oncology researchers, but deciding exactly how to go about the task presents a wide array of logical approaches. Of the several routes one could take to achieve cancer cell death, perhaps one of the most poetic methods is to trick cancer cells into performing the task themselves by committing suicide.
His friends and co-workers in the School of Science and Engineering might say Brett Tribou is a guy who knows how to make things happen. According to Tribou, Tulane University is a place where things are happening and he's thrilled to be a part of it.
Engineers from Tulane and Louisiana State universities teamed up to draft an article that explores key issues related to last year’s Gulf of Mexico Macondo well oil spill and proposes the need for predictive modeling tools to forecast and manage the next spill.
On the fourth floor of Stanley Thomas Hall, amid the civilized sounds of quiet chitchat and the clinking of glassware, a genial convergence of science and art is getting under way. For the third year, the Center for Computational Science is holding an art show comprised of images produced by the center’s students, researchers and faculty.
Tulane University researcher W T. Godbey has developed a treatment for cancer using a method that causes cancer cells to self-destruct while sparing surrounding healthy cells. While clinical trials with human patients are two to three years in the future, the treatment has been successful in animal models.
CBE Alumna Virginia A. Davis, an associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering in Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, is among 85 researchers named by President Barack Obama to receive the prestigious Presidential Early Career for Scientists and Engineers Award, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on early-career researchers.
Tulane University scientists are among more than 150 recipients of National Science Foundation Rapid Response Research grants to study the impact of oil that spewed from the Macondo oil field into the Gulf of Mexico after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.
A group of academics, government scientists and industry representatives met in Rogers Memorial Chapel on the Tulane uptown campus on Thursday (Sept. 2) for the third in a series of “listening sessions” organized by the Unified Command of the Deepwater BP Oil Spill.
