Longitudinal studies offer a wealth of information, particularly for diseases progression or development studies. In addition, smaller sample sizes are possible to accumulate significant data, as subject assessment is possible at multiple time points.
Animal models are crucial in advancing our knowledge and understanding of pulmonary diseases. Using alternatives models, such as computer simulations, is simply not advanced enough to elucidate all the biological mechanisms inside a living creature.
The SCIREQ team attended Experimental Biology (EB) 2021 in April! This year, the team virtually sat in on several exciting sessions touching on topics
SCIREQ recently attended this year’s Society of Toxicology (SOT 2021) Annual Meeting and ToxExpo! While the toxicological science of drugs of abuse has not been a major theme at previous SOT conferences, this year’s virtual event
Cannabis is one of the most popular recreational drugs used worldwide. Since the recent legalization of marijuana across several countries and states, there is an increased interest in research
The AITox seminars this year were quite interesting and informative, the organizers did a great job pivoting into the virtual world! If you missed the opportunity to attend, here are some highlights and what we learned.
The emergence of novel zoonotic outbreaks such as COVID-19 continue to result in high mortality rates, as seen in previous epidemics (i.e SARS & MERS).
inExpose Featured in recent nature publication Congratulations to Dr. Blackwell’s team at Vanderbilt University who recently published in Nature Communications1 with the inExpose! As you may know, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by obstruction in airflow, chronic inflammation, and destruction of the alveolar tissue. This group from Vanderbilt University hypothesized that secretory immunoglobulin A […]
E-cigarette vapour deposition E-cigarette vapour composition is influenced by a number of factors. Some of which relate to the device physically (battery charge, wattage/temperature control, puffing profile) and others to the e-liquid itself (proportion of propylene glycol and glycerol, amount of nicotine, pH of solution). Standardizing how we study these devices will be key to […]
Reproducible E-cigarettes Exposure Environments Studies addressing the potential risks associated with electronic cigarette (e-cig) usage are urgently needed, given their rising use and popularity, especially in youth. Coordinated efforts are required to tackle the challenge of addressing key scientific questions, as there is a diversity of devices and e-liquid formulations that exists, as well as […]
