The Lucira COVID-19 All-In-One Test Kit is a molecular (real-time loop mediated amplification reaction) test that uses a simple nasal swab to return results in 30 minutes, at home. Lucira says the test will cost less than $50, and requires a prescription from a health care provider.

Professor Sheng Zhong is part of the collaborative effort from researchers worldwide working to create a common reference map of all human cells that will allow us to better understand and treat disease: the Human Cell Atlas (HCA). This network is contributing to an endothelial cell atlas in space and time by mapping the transcriptomes of endothelial cells from several tissues from donors of different ages and developing cutting-edge computational tools. To expand the racial diversity of this atlas, the project will include samples from Black and Latinx donors, which will help to clarify how cardiovascular disease manifests differently among various populations. This Network was awarded the CZI Seed Networks Incentive to Support Diversity for the Human Cell Atlas.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of many summer undergraduate research experiences. UC San Diego’s Adam J. Engler quickly adapted his REU to an online program—opening up the opportunity to hundreds of students worldwide. >> read the article
BMES 2020 Fellowship Awarded
Serine, glycine and other nonessential amino acids are critical for tumour progression, and strategies to limit their availability are emerging as potential therapies for cancer. However, the molecular mechanisms driving this response remain unclear and the effects on lipid metabolism are relatively unexplored.
