  5. From Maize to Medicine: Oakland University researchers learning more about human cancer through genetic analysis of corn

    The genetic information in a kernel of corn could be a key to better understanding how normal cells become cancerous in humans, according to a recent collaborative study conducted by researchers from Oakland University and the University of Florida.

    “This is an exciting development as it suggests we can use plants as model systems to better understand human disease,” said Dr. Gerard Madlambayan, an associate professor with the Department of Biological Sciences who specializes in cancer research.

    According to Madlambayan, the link was discovered when Dr. Shailesh Lal, a professor of biological sciences at Oakland University who specializes in the molecular and genetic analysis of plants, identified a “regulatory” gene while studying the corn genome.

    “It turns out that if you destroy this gene, instead of being plump the kernel becomes totally shriveled,” Lal said. “Intriguingly, we found that if you take this mutant kernel and grow it in tissue culture, it proliferates, just like the growth of a tumor.” Read the rest of this entry »

  6. Oakland University professor’s research focuses on deadly antibiotic-resistant bacteria

    Each year, at least 2 million people in the United States become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of those infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    “It’s a real problem,” said Dr. Satish Walia, an associate professor of biological sciences at Oakland University.

    Walia has been studying the presence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in hospital wastewater and local waterways, including the Clinton River. He has been invited to share his research at the 7th International Symposium on Energy, which will take place Aug. 13-17 in Manchester, England. Read the rest of this entry »
