Legislation that would place a $350 million bond proposal for stem-cell research on the ballot in November was approved by a New Jersey Senate panel yesterday positioning the bill for a vote by the full house during the lame-duck legislative session. The bill would boost the state's funding for labs for stem-cell and other biomedical research and allow for $50 million for a biomedical center to be established at NJIT. Donald H. Sebastian, PhD, senior vice president of research and development, and Robert A. Altenkirch, PhD, president, spoke yesterday on behalf of the expenditure. >>
NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch will discuss the recent stem cell research initiative on NJN News tonight. The interview will air at 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. >>
NJIT hosted a “Get Up, Stand Up!” rally on Oct. 26 in support of stem cell research awareness through a global research and education alliance. Along with NJIT, supporting institutions include the Center for Applied Genomics of the Public Health Research Institute, New Jersey Medical School-UMDNJ, Coriell Institute for Medical Research and the New Jersey Stem Cell Research & Education Foundation. >>
John Federici, PhD, a professor in the physics department at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), received NJIT's most prestigious research award during university convocation.   >>
Treena Arinzeh, PhD, an adult stem cell researcher and Presidential Award winner from NJIT, is among an elite group of 88 young engineers attending the National Academy of Engineering's Frontiers of Engineering symposium, held Sept. 22-24 at the General Electric Global Research Center in Niskayuna, N.Y. >>
Menssana Research, located in the small business incubator program at NJIT, is seeking companies to license its federally-approved Heartsbreath test, a life-saving technology that determines whether patients with heart transplants are showing signs of rejecting their new heart. It is non-invasive and risk-free. The Enterprise Development Center at NJIT, which keeps new technology businesses alive and growing in New Jersey, operates the incubator program. >>
New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) played host this weekend to more than 250 leading experts in applied mathematics.  The researchers poured onto campus for an unusual three-day conference to discuss the frontiers of applied and computational mathematics.The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Air Force Office of Special Research (AFOSR) provided funding. Other sponsors were NJIT, the Society of Math Biology and the Mathematical Biosciences Institute. NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences and Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics organized the event. >>
The Albert Dorman Honors College has received a $10,000 grant from the Guidant Foundation that will fund student-research internships in the applied life sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). >>
Thipnakarin Boomfueng (at left), a PhD student in environmental engineering, presented the results of her research project at the Provost's Student Research Day event on April 13, 2005 in the NJIT Campus Center. Her poster presentation was one of 47 undergraduate and graduate student research projects on display representing a wide array of fields and topics including biomedical and pharmaceutical engineering; telecommunications and signal processing; solar research; and nanotechnology. "The students whose work was chosen for today's event should be congratulated for the quality and effectiveness of their work," said Urs Gauchat, interim provost. "The often spectacular efforts make one believe that the future of research is in good hands. It also reinforces the belief that NJIT provides a fertile environment for creative endeavors." >>

Treena Arinzeh, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at NJIT, is researching the use of stem cells to induce bone repair. One day soon, as a result of her research, patients could be treated with off-the-shelf stem-cell therapies instead of drugs. Arinzeh has pushed the basic science of stem cells forward and, with her latest research on bone repair, is taking it yet another step >>
Shawn Chester, a mechanical engineering major, has graduated from the Albert Dorman Honors College at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) with record of academic excellence and having done award-winning research. >>
