U.Va. Health has joined a nationwide study looking to evaluate the effectiveness of two repurposed therapeutics to treat mild-to-moderate COVID-19. Repurposing these medications is helpful because they are already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, meaning they can be put into use right away, should the study prove effective.
Electric cars are becoming the vehicle of the 21st century as governments push to reach global climate goals and auto manufacturers pledge to introduce pure electric models, whose numbers are predicted to reach 145 million by 2030. In order to meet this increasing demand, the University’s Multifunctional Thin Film Research Group is seeking to address prominent problems with the current industry-wide electric car battery model, which does not charge efficiently and contains a flammable liquid that puts drivers and emergency responders at risk if the car becomes compromised.
The first two weeks of class have brought the most student traffic Grounds has seen in the past year and a half. From those feeling a little overwhelmed from the first week of classes to those looking for a good workout or just a way to explore Charlottesville, students and professors have shared their favorite ways to escape the city and breathe in the mountain air.
It has been over a year since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, shutting down any sense of normalcy in people’s daily lives. Despite causing considerable isolation, the pandemic has also fostered greater connections and collaborations among communities. One of the most unlikely partnerships was between the two research teams of in-state rivals U.Va. and Virginia Tech. U.Va. Health’s Dr. Steven L. Zeichner and Virginia Tech’s Dr. Xiang-Jin Meng worked together to develop a potential broad spectrum coronavirus vaccine, combining Zeichner’s innovative new vaccine platform with Meng’s research on zoonotic viruses.
Due to the continued impact of racism in the U.S. healthcare system and existing societal inequities, Black women are three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy or child-birth related causes such as preeclampsia, hypertension, preterm labor, hemorrhage and infection while Black children are two times more likely to die as newborns and be born underweight and premature. Understanding the implications of these health disparities is crucial to eventual implementation of treatment and policy changes in the scope of healthcare environments.
Marine seagrass, specifically eelgrass and turtle grass, proliferate in the shallow waters of estuaries and bays. These meadows of seagrass are an important part of many marine ecosystems, as they provide critical habitats for an abundance of fish, shellfish and invertebrates. They facilitate biodiversity, act as natural sponges to filter nitrogen out of the water and increase water quality and clarity by slowing the current down and increasing the stability of the sediment layer.
