Microbes collected from Northern California and throughout the nation will soon blast into orbit for research and a #microgravity growth competition on the International Space Station (ISS). This citizen science project, known as Project MERCCURI, is led by +UC Davis microbiologists, who are investigating how microbes from different places on Earth compare to each other and to those found on the International Space Station. #microbiology #spacestation #MERCCURI

Hepatitis C affects some 3 to 5 million people in the United States, and 170 million worldwide. Without treatment, many infected with the virus eventually develop chronic liver disease, with some progressing to permanent liver damage, liver cancer and death. Late last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved two direct antiviral agents – sofosbuvir and simeprevir – that are bioengineered to shut down #hepatitis C virus replication. Combined with more traditional hepatitis treatment drugs, the new regimens move toward getting rid of injections altogether, eliminating the debilitating side effects in some patients and at least reducing the total duration of treatment for others. #hepc #livercancer

Christopher Morales wasn’t sure what to do with his life after high school, so he enlisted in the U.S. Army to “grow up and figure it out.” http://www.ucdavis.edu/one/stories/students/morales.html #physicianassistant #BettyIreneMooreSchoolofNursing
