Three scientists from the Keck School of Medicine of USC have won grants from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine for research that includes creating a temporary liver for patients and developing new ways to treat immune disorders.The grants are being awarded to USC Stem Cell principal investigators Paula Cannon, Qi-Long Ying and Toshio Miki as part of the CIRM Tools and Technologies Initiative, which supports projects that address the challenges of translating stem cell discoveries into cures.The winners were chosen from a group of more than 200 proposals to design and create the key technologies needed for progress in the era of regenerative medicine.“These awards are designed to help find ways […] to bridge the gaps in our knowledge and to ensure that the best research is able to keep progressing and move out of the lab and into clinical trials in patients,” said Jonathan Thomas, chair of CIRM’s governing board in a statement to USC News.Miki’s team at USC’s Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research plans to develop what he calls an “extracorporeal liver support system” for patients suffering from liver failure.The project overseen by Miki is an international collaboration with Katrin Zeilinger at Berlin’s Charité University, Frank Shubert at Stem Cell Systems GmbH, and Germany’s Federal Ministry for Education and Research.Cannon and her colleagues are working to develop the next generation of targeted nucleases to treat blood diseases and severe immune deficiencies, such as sickle cell disease.Her team has already developed a targeted nuclease that could potentially cure HIV/AIDS by introducing a gene mutation called CCR5 that confers natural immunity to HIV. Inspiration stemmed from the “Berlin patient,” a patient cured of both HIV and leukemia through a bone marrow transplant from a donor with a CCR5 mutation.Ying, also at the Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, plans to use stem cell technology to create some of the world’s most sophisticated lab rats for use in research of new therapies for diabetes, heart disease and neurodegenerative diseases.Ying is also collaborating with USC colleagues Justin Ichida, Bangyan Stiles and Ching-Ling “Ellen” Lien in his research efforts.

The last time the Orange played the Panthers, the teams combined for an FBS record 137 points and over 1300 yards as Pitt downed SU, 76-61.See what beat writers Joe Bloss, Sam Fortier, Matthew Gutierrez and Tomer Langer have to say about the game and which side they pick to win.Joe Bloss (3-2)Pitt’s going down, I’m yelling tim-burghSyracuse 36, Pittsburgh 30Last year’s game, played in the second-best metropolis in the state of Pennsylvania, will not come close to being repeated because that’s impossible. Syracuse’s defense will continue to make strides but a special teams touchdown will skew Pitt’s point total. SU’s offense will still start strong — for once. It will run better than it did last week, which isn’t hard to do considering how bad it was in Raleigh. But the story of this game will Eric Dungey stuffing the stat sheet again. He, Ervin Philips and Steve Ishmael are in a zone right that should have Pitt’s 107th ranked passing defense fearful. It’s whydozens of SU alumni will pack the Carrier Dome for Saturday’s Orange-out. Come say hi!Sam Fortier (4-1)That’s the PittsSyracuse 34, Pittsburgh 26AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse “desperately needs a win,” head coach Dino Babers said, and, according to FootballStudyHall.com, there are only two games for the rest of the season in which the Orange has a greater than 44 percent chance to win. This is one of them, and Boston College is the other. The Orange needs to capitalize against a plodding offense that lacks explosiveness and struggles to finish drives. With a defensive line stiffening and Chris Fredrick emerging as a top corner, Syracuse has the weapons to prevent Pitt from running wild like last season and putting up enough points to leave the Dome with a W.Matthew Gutierrez (3-2)Air PittSyracuse 38, Pittsburgh 34The X-factor Saturday will be Syracuse’s defense because it’s clear SU will score, as Pitt’s defense seemingly can’t stop anything in the air (e.g. 572 passing yards in a blowout loss to Oklahoma State). SU played fairly well the last two weeks against solid teams on the road and Pitt has allowed at least 31 points in 13 of its past 14 games against conference opponents. Syracuse has lost four straight to Pitt, which hung around Penn State and Georgia Tech on the road this year, but SU will capitalize through the air to edge the Panthers.Tomer Langer (4-1)Pitt stopSyracuse 41, Pitt 31While last year’s game was wild, don’t discount some offensive fireworks in the Carrier Dome this time around. Other than the Middle Tennessee State game — in which head coach Dino Babers said he didn’t get his team prepared — the Orange offense has looked very solid all year. Now, it’s back at home and facing a Pittsburgh defense that’s significantly weaker than LSU or N.C. State (the Panthers rank outside the Top 100 in total defense while NC State and LSU are in the top 60). Return ace Quadree Henderson is still a threat for a Panthers team that should be able to hang around with the Orange for the bulk of the game. But too much from the Syracuse passing attack, picking on the productive yet inexperienced Pittsburgh secondary, should make this a win with some breathing room for the Orange. Comments read more

How to buy ‘Hamilton’ tickets for the Pantages in Los Angeles In one smooth motion, he picked up a rebound and an assist, filling his stat line on his way to a near triple-double. Ball finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.As much as fearless rebounding and stylish assists have come to define Ball’s game in the pros, so too has poor shooting. On Thursday, he was 3 for 12 from the field and 1 for 7 on 3-point attempts.Through 12 games he is shooting a dismal 22 percent from 3-point range and 29.8 percent overall.After missing his first four 3-point attempts, Ball finally connected from the top of the key 46 seconds into the third quarter. Ball continued to fire at will, attempting and missing three 3-pointers after he checked in for the final 6:32 minutes of the game, including one airball.“Some people don’t ever lose confidence,” Coach Luke Walton said, invoking Kobe Bryant’s name in comparison to Ball for the second time this season. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error At least against the Wizards at Capitol One Center, Ball wasn’t alone. None of the Lakers could shoot. Collectively, they were just 3 for 23 from beyond the arc.Seven players scored in double figures for the Lakers. Brook Lopez and reserve Jordan Clarkson each had 15 while Kyle Kuzma added 13. Kuzma and Julius Randle (11 points) each grabbed nine rebounds.A night after committing 21 turnovers in Boston, the Lakers (5-7) coughed up the ball 19 times against the Wizards (6-5).There was plenty of blame to go around for a Lakers team that, after winning three out of four before hitting the road this week, lost for the second straight night after falling into an early hole.The Lakers allowed the Wizards, whose All-Star backcourt of John Wall and Bradley Beal combined to score 45 points, post 37 points in the first quarter.The focus, however, always comes back to Ball.The vaunted rookie said he is used to the pressure that comes with being LaVar Ball’s son; of going No. 2 overall in the draft; of playing for the Lakers. He gives no thought to what it would be like if people lowered their expectations and gave him room to grow.“I live in reality,” Ball said.It’s a reality that frustrates his coach.“The guy is an incredible player and he is 20 years old and almost had a triple-double tonight,” Luke Walton said. “But every time you turn on any sports show, all they talk about is his shot.”The fact remains that Ball is the Lakers’ most willing and most frustrating shooter. He attempts more 3-pointers (4.9 per game) than any of his teammates, and is shooting a worse percentage than any other player in the NBA who is on pace to average at least one 3-pointer per game.

(AP Photo/Nick Wass)ExpandWASHINGTON — As much as Lonzo Ball has struggled to make shots in his NBA career, the heavily scrutinized rookie point guard can be counted on for at least one highlight-reel play every night.On Thursday in Washington, it came in the first quarter of an eventual 111-95 loss to the Wizards, when he heaved a full-court pass to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope for a breakaway layup.Ball jumped to rebound a John Wall miss. Before his fingertips even gripped the ball, he had snapped his head up the court searching for a target. Without a dribble, Ball flung a two-handed pass to Caldwell-Pope in stride.“That’s just him,” Caldwell-Pope said. “He makes passes like that.” On Wednesday in Boston, Ball offered a rare glimpse of what the Lakers are doing to help improve those numbers despite Walton’s insistence that “it’s just a matter of time” before things trend upward.Ball, however, said the Lakers are working with him on subtle adjustments to his shooting motion focused on his balance.“That is what Luke and Magic (Johnson) been telling me,” Ball said. “Most of the problem right now is balance.”The Lakers have protected information about Ball’s shooting like it is a government secret and are actively trying to insulate Ball from the criticism inherent to his station.Asked about the balance work, Walton was adamant that it was nothing special. Even Kuzma, he said, is making minor adjustments to his shot even though he is shooting 52.2 percent to start the season.“He (Kuzma) is trying to get his elbow up more consistently on his shot,” Walton said. “So every single player that comes in the league and guys that have even been in the league for a while, as a player you’re always working on your craft. So it’s not unique to (Ball).”Even that minor detail about Kuzma’s elbow is more than Walton has shared about Ball’s mechanics, which includes a corkscrew approach to a low release point.Asked what the Lakers are hoping to accomplish with the point guard’s jumper, he said, “We’re hoping to see him make more of the shots that he shoots.”Until that day arrives, the Lakers will happily accept the rest of Ball’s game: the aggressive drives and the aggressive rebounding and the home-run passes, like the first-quarter assist to Caldwell-Pope.“He did all those other things that he can control,” Walton said, “and did them really well.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersRelated Articles read more
