Topical BioMedics Hosts March Pain Management Webinar

Rhinebeck, NY (PRWEB) March 03, 2015

Topical BioMedics, Inc., announces its March Pain Management Workshop will be held as a webinar streamed live on Tuesday, March 10th, 12pm – 1pm and 4pm to 5pm. Afterward, the workshops will be archived and accessible 24/7.

The Pain Management Workshops are free and open to the public. The topic for the March 10th workshop is “Opioid Addiction: An Over-Medicated Society.” It’s a very timely discussion, considering that the U.S. represents 5% of the world’s population, yet consumers 99% of the world’s Vicodin and 84% of the Oxycontin. Drug addiction in the U.S. has reached epidemic proportions, and 46 people die per day from overdosing on Rx painkillers*….The number is even higher if those who overdose on heroin are factored in, as many people who get addicted to painkillers often turn to heroin as a less-expensive alternative.

Viewers can tune into the live Go to Meeting Webinar by using the following links:

Groundbreaking HydroWorx Sponsored Webinar Links Cognition and Gait Fostered by Aquatic Therapy Techniques

Middletown, PA (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

Research is exploring two big questions about aquatic environments: (1) How does walking in shallow water compare to walking on an underwater treadmill or on land? (2) Does the aquatic environment influence cognition? These two questions help to answer why aquatic programming may have additional value for your participants, beyond what was previously understood.

To answer these questions, leading researchers have begun to explore the direct and indirect effects of aquatic therapy in regards to cognition and gait. Their results will be more deeply explored in a groundbreaking ICAA (International Council on Active Aging) webinar, “Influence of an Aquatic Environment on Cognition and Gait,” sponsored by HydroWorx on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT.

“Influence of an Aquatic Environment on Cognition and Gait” will be led by Dr. Eadric Bressel and Dr. Dennis Dolny, both of Utah State University. Dr. Bressel is a professor and clinical research scientist in the Sports Medicine Program; Dr. Dolny is the department head of Health, Physical Education and Recreation in the College of Education and Human Services. Both have pioneered hydrotherapy and aquatic exercise research, and continue to use scientific tests to back the anecdotal findings of elite runners, professional athletes and physical therapy experts, as well as their clients and patients.

This one-hour webinar will concentrate on several areas of aquatic therapy, gait and cognition, including:

The types of underwater therapy (e.g., underwater treadmill walking, shallow pool walking, deep water walking) that have proven beneficial for patients who may not be able to function as well in land-based locomotion therapies.
How cognition is enhanced when a patient undergoes specific exercises in an aquatic modality such as a pool with treadmill floor.

Physical and occupational therapists and assistants, wellness directors and coordinators, aquatics and fitness directors, and professors and researchers are encouraged to sign up for “Influence of an Aquatic Environment on Cognition and Gait” today at http://ww2.hydroworx.com/webinar-icaa-apr-2015. Registration is free, but is required to attend.

GE Healthcare Presents Webinar to Showcase Complete Workflow of Synthetic CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Platform

Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

Dharmacon, part of GE Healthcare, is sponsoring a new, free educational webinar, “CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing with Synthetic RNA – from Start to Finish!” in which the complete workflow of the Dharmacon™ Edit-R™ CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Engineering platform is demonstrated to knock out the PPIB gene at the protein level in mammalian cells. Data from the analysis of 42 edited clones will be presented. The presentation will discuss CRISPR-Cas9 background and crRNA design considerations, transfection optimization for maximal editing efficiency, enrichment of cell populations with gene editing events by FACS, clonal selection, and detailed analysis of editing events.

The Edit-R platform streamlines the workflow of permanently knocking out genes by doing away with the time-consuming cloning of individual guide RNA expression vectors. This synthetic approach permits fast assessment of multiple target sites per gene, for multiple genes.

The Edit-R platform includes the three components needed for gene editing in mammalian cells:

a plasmid expressing a Cas9 nuclease
a chemically synthesized tracrRNA
a synthetic crRNA designed to the target site of interest

The Edit-R platform is based on the Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR)-Cas9 system, which was initially adapted from the bacterial Type II CRISPR system. CRISPR-Cas9 systems have been rapidly adopted for genome engineering in various biological applications due to their speed and ease-of-use compared to previously existing techniques.

The speaker will be Dr. Emily Anderson, PhD, a Senior Scientist in Dharmacon Research and Development working in gene modulation. Dr. Anderson received a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she elucidated the structure and function of protein: single-stranded DNA interactions at telomeres. Since joining Dharmacon in 2003, Anderson has worked extensively on the mechanism, function, specificity, and delivery of RNA interference (RNAi) and its applications. She manages projects involving the development and application of gene engineering and other gene-modulation technologies. Anderson is an inventor on several issued patents, played a role in the introduction of several product lines, and has authored peer-reviewed publications in the RNAi field.

The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on February 19, 2015 at 8:00am Pacific Time/11:00am Eastern Time.
