Postdoctoral Associate – Pediatrics – Dr. Eric Nelson’s Laboratory (55389)

first_imgA postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory ofEric Nelson, M.D., Ph.D. at the Emerging Pathogens Institute,University of Florida. The overall goal of our laboratory is todevelop better methods to improve the care, diagnosis andmanagement of patients during large-scale diarrheal diseaseoutbreaks. Our model system is cholera and our primarycollaborative field sites are in Bangladesh and Haiti. In thefield, our research focuses on identifying and characterizing keyselective pressures that drive disease severity and transmission.At the University of Florida, we test hypotheses derived from thefield studies in animal models of infection and transmission.The current available project lies at the physiologic interfacebetween host and pathogen. Specifically, the first phase ofresearch involves characterizing the microbiota of human diarrhealdisease samples and identifying antimicrobial factors important topathogenesis and transmission (e.g. antibiotics by LC/MS andbacteriophage). Samples will be characterized for markers of smallbowel overgrowth, environmental enteropathy, and innate/ acquiredimmunity dysfunction. Descriptive findings will then be evaluatedfor causation in animal models using genetic manipulations ofpathogens of interest (e.g. Vibrio cholerae). The secondphase will involve two clinical studies. The first is to study theimpact of single-dose antibiotics on the microbiota inside andoutside the gastrointestinal tract during cholera infection. Thesecond study involves assessing a novel point of care diagnosticfor V. cholerae. The clinical studies will requireintermittent field research.The position is available as soon as possible. The position is atleast one year and extension is contingent on satisfactoryperformance.

England boosted by final warm-up victory over Ireland

first_img When Ireland scored with half an hour remaining, however, what should have been an emphatic seventh successive triumph at Twickenham became far closer until Ireland fell away in the final 10 minutes. Sam Burgess arrived from the bench for the final quarter and gave a glimpse of what he might be able to achieve with more time, almost succeeding with one offload amid two handling errors. Tom Wood was named man of the match but Robshaw could have also finished with that accolade, and it was two late penalties from replacement fly-half Owen Farrell that swept the Red Rose home. England, whose line-out and set piece were improved but still fell short of the usual standard, enter their World Cup opener against Fiji on September 18 with some momentum while accepting higher standards will be needed for the Pool A clashes with Wales and Australia. Ireland will take comfort in knowing they do not need to peak until October 11 when they play their pivotal Pool D clash with France and on this evidence their conditioning levels are below that of the hosts. They will monitor the fitness of Conor Murray carefully over the coming days after the Lion departed with concussion early in the match, his good health critical given he is one of only two scrum-halves in the 31-man squad named for England 2015. England’s start could not have been more emphatic as waves of attacks ended with Ben Youngs floating a clever pass to May who bumped off Tommy Bowe and evaded Simon Zebo to score in the left corner. The one-way traffic was temporarily interrupted when Jonathan Sexton landed a penalty on the crossbar with the ball bouncing over, but in the 14th minute England struck again when George Ford sent a cross-field kick to the right wing where there was acres of space. Press Association Watson and Zebo leapt to compete for the ball and it was the Ireland full-back who miscalculated, allowing Watson to collect and touch down. A bad start deteriorated further for the Six Nations champions when Murray’s match was ended by concussion and a forward pass from Youngs saw May denied a third try. Geoff Parling, restored to the team to stabilise the line-out after two shaky meetings with France, stole Irish possession at the set piece and England renewed their assault with the slippery Watson almost wriggling free. The pendulum swung just before half-time, however, as Ireland finally attacked with accuracy, but a gap for wing Dave Kearney was quickly filled with white shirts before Sean O’Brien knocked-on. Ireland began the second half with a flourish and it was a more finely balanced game now as Ford and Sexton exchanged penalties. May was forced into a rushed clearance from behind his own whitewash and Joe Schmidt’s men pounced from the short-range line-out, forwards peeling off around the fringes until O’Connell arrived to burrow over. England led just 15-13 but they almost responded instantly when Ford and Watson escaped the green shirts only to fall to despairing late tackles. The World Cup hosts were back in control as they searched for the match-sealing try and it appeared to have been scored with 10 minutes left only to be disallowed because of a mix-up between Tom Wood and Robshaw. Substitute Owen Farrell, who had earlier butchered an overlap, landed two penalties to put the result beyond doubt and ensure England will enter the World Cup unbeaten at Twickenham this year. England will enter the World Cup armed with a confidence-enhancing 21-13 victory over Ireland but will know they should have emerged more convincing winners over the RBS 6 Nations champions in their final warm-up game. Jonny May and Anthony Watson ran in tries inside the opening 15 minutes as the tournament hosts honoured their promise to address the shortcomings exposed during two poor performances against France. They attacked the breakdown with far greater energy and relentlessly hunted down green shirts, with captain Chris Robshaw at the heart of his pack’s pursuit in an afternoon that restored the forwards’ reputation after their humbling in Paris a fortnight ago. last_img read more

Cricket News ICC Women’s World T20: Australia clinch record fourth title with crushing win over England

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Australian women’s cricket team is record-breakers when it comes to ICC World events. They have won the 50-over World Cup six times. On Saturday, at North Sound Antigua, they secured a record fourth World T20 title by crushing England in the final. The Southern Stars bowled England out for a paltry 105 and they chased the target to win the contest by eight wickets. This is Australia’s second World T20 win in the West Indies, having won the title in 2010. Remarkably, in the last time England took on Australia in the final, it was in the 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh and remarkably, they were bowled out for 105 and the target was achieved in 15.1 overs.Read More | Bangladesh continue stellar Test run, beat West Indies in first TestAustralia’s march to the title owed a lot to the all-round efforts of Ashleigh Gardner, the 21-year-old off spinner. Her efforts, combined with consistent contributions from the other Australian bowlers negated the advantage England had after opting to bat. Ellyse Perry and Megan Schutt struck early blows and it was left to Danielle Wyatt and skipper Heather Knight to steady the ship.Read More | Mithali Raj’s manager lashes out at India skipper Harmanpreet KaurHowever, Gardner removed Wyatt for 43 when the batter drilled a flighted delivery to extra cover only for Meg Lanning to take a fantastic catch. With Wyatt’s dismissal, England lost seven wickets for 41 runs, with Gardner accounting for skipper Knight and Anya Shrubsole. The England tail folded cheaply and they were bundled out for 105, with Gardner taking 3/22.In response, Australia started aggressively with Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney sharing a 29-run opening stand. Healy fell for 22 when Sophie Ecclestone breached her defences while Mooney tried to steer Danielle Hazell to third man but ended up edging to the keeper. However, Gardner, having hurt England with the ball, hurt the opposition with the bat as well and she was given good support by Lanning.Gardner broke the shackles by launching Knight over deep midwicket and Australia came closer to the target when Gardner launched Kirstie Gordon over long on for two sixes in one over and victory was sealed in the 16th over when Lanning tapped Natalie Sciver to point for a quick single to spark wild celebrations in the Australian camp.Speaking after the win, Lanning said the calmness displayed by the team was outstanding. “I think this is a very satisfying win. We knew we could change a few things and we are a very calm group and I think we showed that tonight. The girls have been outstanding and the support staff has been excellent,” Lanning said.On the loss, England skipper Knight said it was a competitive wicket but the total was not challenging enough. “We just lost wickets at the key time and we lost momentum and we didn’t put a competitive total on the board,” Knight rued. last_img read more
