Edward Song is developing a biosensor to detect chemical conversations in the brain
To better understand how neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases develop, researchers need to study how neurons and immune cells in the brain communicate with each other. With a major new National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering Edward Song hopes to be a part of that conversation, even though his background...

Healing Hydrogel

UNH researchers create a hydrogel contact lens to treat serious eye disease
UNH researchers have created a hydrogel that could one day be made into a contact lens to more effectively treat corneal melting, a condition that is a significant cause for blindness world-wide. The incurable eye disease can be initiated by a number of different causes such as autoimmune diseases (like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or Stevens-Johnson syndrome), chemical burns, or even some...

UNH Researchers Identify Role Sex-Biased Protein May Play in Autism

Could lead to promising treatment strategies
UNH researchers are one step closer to helping answer the question of why autism is four times more common in boys than in girls after identifying and characterizing the connection of certain proteins in the brain to autism spectrum disorders (ASD). “Our study is the first to look at the sex-biased regulation of proteins in the brain and how they may play a role in affecting abnormal changes in...
