As part of the Youth Energy Celebration, hosted by Ohio Energy Project (OEP), Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) and Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio (Vectren), a CenterPoint Energy Company, awarded Energy Leadership Scholarships to three high school seniors planning for careers in energy.The recognition event was held at The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, where three local area students were presented the 2019 DP&L and Vectren Leadership Scholarship. Chloe Spencer of West Liberty-Salem High School, Erin Tebbe of Twin Valley High School and Alexander House of Oakwood High School will each receive $1,000 towards their college expenses.
Chloe Spencer plans to attend the University of Toledo majoring in chemical engineering. Erin Tebbe is heading to Purdue University to study engineering. Alexander House will major in aerospace engineering at the University of Cincinnati.Each year, DP&L teams up with Vectren to host the OEP Energy Fair teaching young people about energy efficiency through hands-on sessions that allow high school students to mentor their younger counterparts. These companies generously provide funding for the curriculum, training and materials that promote energy literacy and leadership for students and their families each year.DP&L was also recognized by OEP for its long-standing partnership and contributions to the program. The award celebrates a 30-year milestone of continued support and participation in the program.In addition, DP&L has sponsored the Be E3 Smart energy efficiency program since 2009. As a result, more than 50,000 energy efficiency kits have been sent home through the classroom. DP&L is supporting the AEGIS Energy Bike building program for the fifth year.
Two area teachers were honored with the Excellence in Energy Efficiency award. Jovita Wade, an intervention specialist at Fairborn High School, received the DP&L Teacher Award and Heidi Edwards, a science educator from Oakwood High School in Dayton, received the Vectren Teacher Award. Both award recipients have participated in OEP programs for several years, tailoring their curriculums to foster the next generation of energy leaders and conservation thinkers.

The curative use of stem cells in regenerative medicine

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 10 maggio 2019

Semma Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company pioneering the curative use of stem cells in regenerative medicine, today announced the journal Nature published data demonstrating improvements in the production of beta cells (cells that produce insulin) from stem cells. Led by Harvard University researchers in collaboration with scientists from Semma, the study characterized the types of cells produced by the applicable cell differentiation methods, and demonstrated biological and physical separation methods to increase the purity of beta cells in a sample of converted stem cells from 30 to 80 percent.“The implications of these findings could be tremendously important in developing effective therapies for the more than 1.25 million people living with Type 1 diabetes in the U.S.,” said Bastiano Sanna, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Semma Therapeutics. “We are immensely grateful to our collaborators at Harvard University, including Prof. Doug Melton, whose lab showed for the first time in 2014 that stem cells could be converted to functional beta cells, and who led the research presented in this important manuscript. These findings provide a solid foundation to continue to advance Semma’s mission to develop and provide best-in-class islet cell therapies for patients.”Published results summarize the single-cell sequencing and molecular biology used to identify genes expressed by each cell and the classification of those cells based on expression patterns. The paper also details the discovery of a protein expressed uniquely by beta cells, which was used to “fish” beta cells from the mixture, as well as a physical enrichment method developed by Semma scientists, which together were able to improve the purity of beta cells by more than two-fold.The manuscript, titled “Charting cellular identity during human in vitro β-cell differentiation,” may be found here. A press release issued by Harvard University describes the scientific findings in brief.
