travel. We been to Detroit, Cleveland, New Jersey and New York all in
the past couple of weeks, but for your

ACS meeting in Boston from August 22 to 26 and ChemOutsourcing
conference in New Jersey, from September 14 to 16.
you are available to meet with us during any of these occasions, you can
contact Mel Bellott and we would be happy to set aside the

identify what makes MRSA lethal
Staphylococcus aureus is a type of bacteria commonly

bloodstream, where it can cause blood poisoning and create abscesses in
organs such as the heart and brain.
MRSA, or Methicillin
Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, can be
particularly dangerous because it is resistant to treatment with most
antibiotics. Read More

grow new lungs
using 'skeletons' of old ones
someone with a severe, incurable lung disorder such as cystic fibrosis
or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, a lung transplant may be the
only chance for survival. Unfortunately, it's often not a very good
chance. Matching donor lungs are rare, and many would -be recipients die
waiting for the transplants that could save their lives.
in the emerging field of
tissue engineering have been hard at work on this for years. But they've
been frustrated by the problem of coaxing undifferentiated stem cells
to develop into the specific cell types that populate different
locations in the lung. Read More
