Development and Validation of Advanced Mammalian Models for Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD) (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

NIH Funding Opportunities - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 23:35
Funding Opportunity PAR-19-167 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages research to develop, characterize and validate innovative mammalian models that recapitulate molecular, cellular, neuropathological, behavioral and cognitive hallmarks of the Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD), including Lewy body dementia (LBD), vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID), frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) and mixed etiology dementias (MED). Models will be expected to exhibit a broad range of features characteristic of the dementia disorder being modeled, including a mid- to late-life onset consistent with the human disorder, multiple age-dependent neuropathological processes and the associated behavioral, cognitive and/or physiological abnormalities. For each proposed mammalian model, a relevant suite of phenotypes that inform human ADRD disease progression and mechanisms should be characterized across the full life span or, for longer-living mammalian models, throughout the disease-relevant stages of adulthood. The goal of this FOA is to establish multi-dimensional mammalian models for ADRD to serve as tools to interrogate molecular disease mechanisms and identify therapeutic targets.

'The trash never stops': Indonesia battles to clean up rivers

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 23:04

Boys played and chatted on a rickety wooden ramp under a baking sun in West Java, while just below their feet flowed one of Indonesia's most horribly polluted rivers, clogged with hundreds of tonnes of smelly trash. Authorities in the nation of 260 million are battling a lack of recycling culture or environmental awareness to achieve an ambitious target of a 70 percent cut in marine plastic debris by 2025, despite having devoted $1 billion a year to the task. "Every time it rains and floods, the whole village goes down to help with the trash and clean the river," said Marzuki, a resident of Tarumajaya, on the banks of the Pisang Batu river that carries along waste from villages upstream.

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 22:49

In a risk-laden global economy, Singapore’s advantages are beginning to stand out. Dyson Ltd. wasn’t the first to cite business-friendly factors for its decision, even beyond the city state’s low political risk and favorable taxes. Singapore has one of the most business-friendly tax regimes in the world: rates for corporate tax, at 17 percent, and personal income, at 22 percent, each beat regional averages around the world, according to data compiled by tax and financial advisory firm KPMG LLP.

Iowa's 'fetal heartbeat' abortion ban ruled unconstitutional

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 22:35

Iowa's Republican-controlled legislature passed the restriction in May 2018, outlawing the procedure after a fetal heartbeat is detected, often at six weeks and before a woman realizes she is pregnant. A fetus that is viable outside the womb, usually at 24 weeks, is widely considered the threshold in the United States to prohibit an abortion. The district court decision is a victory for supporters of abortion rights, but abortion opponents have vowed to take the fight to Iowa's appellate courts, the Des Moines Register and other media reported.

'A rock' hit the moon during the Super Blood Wolf Moon

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 19:55

On Sunday, millions of people around the world watched as the Earth’s shadow covered the moon in a copper-reddish glow in what was known as a “Super Blood Wolf Moon.” It was the first full moon of the year (a wolf moon) and it came at a time when the moon was also closest to Earth (a super moon) and going through a lunar eclipse (a blood moon). Many astronomers speculated what had happened, but one of them, Jose Maria Madiedo from the University of Huelva in Spain, quickly confirmed that it was indeed a meteorite that hit the moon. “A rock hits the moon during the total eclipse,” Madiedo tweeted on the morning of Jan. 22.

Jet-setting Davos elite frets about climate

Yahoo Science News feed latest items - Tue, 01/22/2019 - 19:35

The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos is one of the few places where environmental activists attend the same events as the private jet crowd, and get a chance to try to convince them to change their ways face-to-face. Coming is "not for us a given, because this is a group of elites who have gotten us into the lot of messes that we have around the world right now," the environmental organisation's executive director Jennifer Morgan told AFP. Last year, US President Donald Trump came to address the WEF just months after announcing he would abandon the Paris climate agreement.
