Palm Beach County’s life sciences industry is not only fast-growing, but extremely collaborative. Here’s the top five reasons Palm Beach County is an innovative hub for the life sciences.
FAU’s Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (CMBB) and Sancilio & Company, a local biotech company founded in 2005, continue to partner in training highly skilled workers in biopharmaceuticals and drug development.
Since scientists began studying the brain, they have asked whether the biology they observed can really be tied to external behaviors. Researchers are building a substantial understanding of the biophysical, molecular, and cellular interactions of neurons, but directly relating those interactions to outward behaviors is an ongoing challenge in the field. “The biophysical properties of neurons are pretty well known,” said Hyungbae Kwon, Ph.D., Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI). “What we don’t know well is how these connections and communications trigger our behavior.”
Is it possible to prevent dementia from happening in the first place? That is what a leading neuroscientist at Florida Atlantic University hopes to prove through an innovative approach that defies the notion that “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to battling Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Lewy Body Dementia (LBD), Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other related disorders.
CoverMyMeds, a leader in electronic prior authorization (ePA) solutions, and Modernizing Medicine, the specialty-specific health IT leader, today announced an agreement to bring electronic prior authorization (ePA) functionality to the over 7,500 providers using EMA™, the award winning electronic health record (EHR) system in Modernizing Medicine’s suite of services.
Officials at Boca Raton Regional Hospital (BRRH) today announced that it has embarked on a process to explore the possibility of establishing a strategic partnership with another healthcare provider — one that will accelerate and elevate the Hospital’s position as a preeminent academic regional referral medical center.
Jenna Martin approaches life as an opportunity to serve others and Christ. It’s why she wants to be a nurse, and why she chose PBA as the place to provide her with the skills and knowledge to be the best.
Last Monday, June 12, 2017, life science and tech innovators gathered at Life Sciences South Florida’s second annual Lifees event.
Jupiter Medical Center has opened its third off-site urgent care center in four years — this one in Palm Beach Gardens.
Professor Matthew Disney of the Department of Chemistry on the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), together with scientists from Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, has been awarded $7.2 million from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke of The National Institutes of Health to create new RNA-based treatments for the most common form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), as well as a type of frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
