The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus announced a new robotic screening and imaging technology today marking a major breakthrough in the detection and treatment of disease.

The technology, made possible by a gift to the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, could cut the screening time for new drug therapies by half. That means therapies and pharmaceuticals could be ready for patients faster than ever before.

“This technology does not exist at any academic institution in the Mountain West and is limited between the two coasts, placing the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in a unique position to advance drug discovery in Colorado and beyond,” said David Ross, Ph.D., associate dean for research at the CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. “We envision this new screening and imaging technology will be applied to both small molecule and biologic drug development

4 Ways The Oil Industry Must Rapidly Evolve To Survive

A common misreading of Darwinism is that only the strongest survive. Not quite. Charles Darwin argued that organisms that mutated to adapt to changing environments would, through a process of natural selection, lead to the evolution of new species. It had nothing to do with strength, but adaptability. And while the oil and gas industry has some of the world’s cleverest engineers and scientists, they don’t call it Big Oil because it’s especially good at change. We all know that if the energy sector’s cost structure does not evolve, the entire industry will end up like the prehistoric giants who provided the raw material for fossil fuels in the first place.

Sensor rapidly detects COVID-19 infection — ScienceDaily

One feature of the COVID-19 virus that makes it so difficult to contain is that it can be easily spread to others by a person who has yet to show any signs of infection. The carrier of the virus might feel perfectly well and go about their daily business — taking the virus with them to work, to the home of a family member, or to public gatherings.

A crucial part of the global effort to stem the spread of the pandemic, therefore, is the development of tests that can rapidly identify infections in people who are not yet symptomatic.

Now, Caltech researchers have developed a new type of multiplexed test (a test that combines multiple kinds of data) with a low-cost sensor that may enable the at-home diagnosis of a COVID infection through rapid analysis of small volumes of saliva or blood, without the involvement of a medical professional,

Ionis and Genuity Science announce agreement designed to rapidly translate genomic insights into therapeutics

Genuity Science’s approach combines high-quality, whole-genome sequence and deep phenotype data resulting in better definition of the underlying disease mechanisms. This approach, when coupled with Ionis’ proprietary antisense technology, has the potential to significantly expedite the drug development process through a more direct translation of targets into therapeutics.

Under terms of the multi-year collaboration, Genuity Science will receive a combination of upfront payments and development milestones, plus product royalties.  

“Ionis’ financial strength and the success of our validated antisense technology have positioned us to invest in new technologies that enhance our R&D capabilities,” said Brett P. Monia, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Ionis. “The collaboration with Genuity Science gives us the potential to significantly increase our discovery opportunities and better understand the complexities of human diseases based on genetics.”

“We are excited to collaborate with an innovative company like Ionis,” said Rob Brainin, chief executive officer of Genuity

Murder Hornets Could Spread ‘Rapidly’ Throughout Western North America If Not Contained

Invasive Asian giant hornets—popularly known as “murder hornets”—could spread rapidly throughout western North America if left unchecked, researchers have found.

A sample specimen of a dead Asian giant hornet from Japan, also known as a “murder hornet,” is shown on July 29, 2020 in Bellingham, Washington

Native to forested parts of eastern and southern Asia, the insect is the world’s largest hornet species, measuring up to two inches long. In September 2019, the hornet was detected in western British Columbia, Canada, and it has now spread into adjacent parts of Washington state near the border.

For a study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of scientists examined records from the hornet’s native range in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, and combined it with climate data in order to predict areas of the world where the insect could

Animals lose fear of predators rapidly after they start encountering humans — ScienceDaily

Most wild animals show a suite of predator avoidance behaviors such as vigilance, freezing, and fleeing. But these are quickly reduced after the animals come into contact with humans through captivity, domestication, or urbanization, according to a study led by Benjamin Geffroy from MARBEC (Institute of Marine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation), publishing September 22nd in the open-access journal PLOS Biology.

The international team of researchers analyzed the results of 173 peer-reviewed studies investigating antipredator traits (behavioral and physiological) in 102 species of domesticated, captive, and urbanized mammals, birds, reptiles, fish and molluscs, while taking into account their position in the Tree of Life.

The scientists found that contact with humans led to a rapid loss of animals antipredator traits, but simultaneously the variability between individuals initially increases and then gradually decreases over the generations in contact with human. The authors suppose that this two-step process is caused by reduced

Following TechCrunch reporting, Palantir rapidly removes language allowing founders to “unilaterally adjust their total voting power”

Well, that was fast.

This morning, I analyzed Palantir’s newly published 5th amendment of its S-1 filing with the SEC as it pursues a public direct listing on the NYSE. I called the company “not a democracy” after it added new provisions to create a special mechanism called “Stockholder Party Excluded Shares” that would, in the language of Palantir, allow the company’s trio of founders to “unilaterally adjust their total voting power” at will, now and into the future.

Well, Palantir has now filed a 6th amendment with the SEC just a few hours after it filed its previous amendment, and the company has removed all references to this special mechanism from its SEC filing.

The 19 mentions of “Stockholder Party Excluded Shares” and multiple sections where the mechanism were discussed and explained have now been entirely excised. In addition, the company’s line about its founders having the capability to
