AZBio In The Loop for the week of November 11, 2019


Our AZBio Community makes life better.  Through their services, Veterans everywhere have made our way of life possible.  Each year AZBio invites the Veterans in our community to be part of a Veteran’s Day video tribute to the members of Arizona’s life science and healthcare community who served in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. We hope you will take a few minutes to meet our 2019 Veterans.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this video possible and to Rowdy Johnson of SynCardia and the Rowdy Johnson Band for granting AZBio permission to use their song “America’s Best” to honor our AZBio Veterans.

State Biotech Associations Warn Part D Redesign Puts New Treatments for Patients at Risk

In a letter to Chairman Grassley (R-IA) and Ranking Member Wyden (D-OR), the leaders of the Senate Finance Committee, state biotech associations warn that the Committee’s proposed redesign of Medicare Part D puts new, innovative treatments for patients at risk.

That’s a switch! Synthetic circuits regulate gene expression

During the first flickering of life on earth, ribonucleic acid (RNA) occupied center stage. Since its shadowy beginnings, RNA has become a basic constituent of all living cells, faithfully transcribing DNA messages contained in genes and translating these into proteins.

Now, Alex Green and his group at ASU’s Biodesign Institute and scientists from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Northwestern University, along with a group of international colleagues are carrying RNA’s startling capacities a step further.
