Aiming to gain a better understanding of human neuromusculoskeletal functions and provide innovative, promising, and non-invasive diagnostic and rehabilitative treatment methods, the USF School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences recently opened its Center for Neuromusculoskeletal Research (CNMSR). The Center, which is housed in the School’s groundbreaking Human Functional Performance Laboratory, gained approval in April to open and earned critical recurring funding from the Florida Legislature in the 2012 session.

Scientists from the Group of Dr. Samuel Young, Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience in Jupiter, together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine in Göttingen, Germany and the Department of Basic Neurosciences at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland have achieved considerable progress towards our better understanding of how synapses in the brain manage to achieve sustained high-speed signal transmission. The findings are published in the May 8th issue of the prestigious Journal of Neuroscience. ..Read More ⇒Friday, May 17, 2013
The hardening of arteries is a hallmark of atherosclerosis, an often deadly disease in which plaques, excessive connective tissue, and other changes build up inside vessel walls and squeeze off the flow of oxygen-rich blood throughout the body. Now, researchers at our Diabetes and Obesity Research Center have described the molecular and cellular pathway that leads to this hardening of the arteries—and zeroed in on a particularly destructive protein called Dkk1. ..Read More ⇒Friday, May 17, 2013
A Florida State University researcher working as part of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) investigated the effects of dispersants on the movement of crude oil through water-saturated marine sand and found that dispersants potentially facilitate penetration of oil components into the seabed, where oxygen concentrations may affect the degradation of the oil. ..Read More ⇒Friday, May 17, 2013
