CBR members publish biomedical research
Oakland University biomedical researchers continue to publish important new discoveries. Here is a sample of papers published by CBR members in the last few weeks.

1. CBR member Xiangqun Zeng, of the Department of Chemistry, is an expert in biosensors. Her paper Complex Thiolated Mannose/Quinone Film Modified on EQCM/Au Electrode for Recognizing Specific Carbohydrate-Proteins was published in the May 15 issue of Biosensors & Bioelectronics (Volume 55, Pages 157-161). The research was supported in part by a grant from the Office of Naval Research.

2. CBR member Shailesh Lal, Department of Biological Sciences, led a team studying the Discovery and Expression Analysis of Alternative Splicing Events Conserved Among Plants SR Proteins (Molecular Biology and Evolution, Volume 31, Pages 605-613). Lead author was former graduate student Hypaitia Rauch, who obtained her masters degree in biology last year. Coauthors include Assistant Professor Fabia Battistuzzi, former biology major Tara Patrick, and former engineering biology major Katarina Klusman. The research was supported by the National Science Foundation grant 1221984.

3. CBR member Lakshmi Raman, of the Department of Psychology, reported on Children’s and Adult’s Understanding of the Impact of Nutrition on Biological and Psychological Processes in the March issue of the British Journal of Developmental Psychology (Volume 32, Pages 78-93). Raman’s research was supported by grant R15HD058303 from the National Institutes of Health.

4. Graduate student Nicholas Charteris (Biomedical Sciences: Medical Physics PhD program) was lead author on an article about Modeling Chemotaxis of Adhesive Cells: Stochastic Lattice Approach and Continuum Description (New Journal of Physics, Volume 16, Article Number 025002). Charteris works with CBR member Evgeniy Khain (Department of Physics), using mathematical models to study cancer. Check out the paper’s video abstract.

5. CBR member Tamara Hew-Butler (School of Health Sciences) was part of a multi-institutional team studying The Need for Salt: Does a Relationship Exist Between Cystic Fibrosis and Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia? (Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Volume 28, Pages 807-813).
