Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago Research Histology Core

225 E. Chicago Ave. Chicago, IL 60611Following the opening of Lurie Children's, a Research Histology Core has been established at Manne Research Institute to provide scientists histology services in house within a short period of time and at minimal costs. Equipment is available to process fixed tissue, embed in paraffin, section them and make routine hematoxylin and eosin staining as well as to perform immunohistochemistry and some special staining. Staff members are available for technical consultation regarding optimal harvesting and fixation of tissues, stains, histopathological procedures as well as for professional pathologic consultation and even imaging. Specimen Preparation For the best preservation of tissue morphology, the thickness of the tissue placed in fixative should be between 0.2 and 0.7 cm. Sections that are thicker require time for the fixative to permeate to the center, resulting in potential degradation. The volume of fixative should be at least 10 times that of the specimen. Fixation should be carried out as soon as possible after removal of the tissues, and for sufficient time to allow the permeation of the fixative into the tissue. Staff can provide the 10% buffered formalin by request. Tissues can remain in formalin for prolonged periods of time without compromising histology. However, after 24 hours, the longer the tissue is in formalin, the more antigenicity is lost.

HappiLabs

2242 W. Harrison St., Mailbox 15 CHICAGO, IL 60612Established in 2012, we are a bootstrapped, family-owned business. HappiLabs provides a variety of services to help scientists and biotech labs be better with finance and lab operations. We noticed that scientists do not have resources available to make informed purchasing decisions about lab supplies and all the companies who sell them. Our primary service is called the Virtual Lab Manager, like an outsourced lab manager or purchasing department. We evaluate the supply chain, which is a mess and costs scientists a lot of time as they search for prices and specs, talk to sales reps, and call customer service. HappiLabs studies this process to be quicker and better than anyone else at this job. The way we see it, the less you have to think about this stuff, the lower your stress, and the happier you’ll be.

Rush University Medical Center Live Animal Imaging Core Facility

600 S. Paulina St. Chicago, Illinois 60612The Live Animal Imaging Core uses the IVIS Lumina II imaging system, which allows monitoring of cellular activity (quantitative) through bioluminescent or fluorescent reporters in live mice or rats. This system can identify tumor development in studies aimed at dissecting the molecular genetics of several types of cancer using mouse or rat models. The imaging system allows the use of a smaller cohort of animals for the research as animals do not need to be sacrificed to ascertain the presence of tumor lesions. The system offers noninvasive longitudinal monitoring of the following: Disease progression (e.g., tumor progression and metastasis) Tumor response and recurrence Cell trafficking and gene expression patterns in living animals Drug metabolism genes due to either the parent molecule or its metabolites A potentially greater use of this imaging system is in translational research involving therapeutic trials using animal models for disease. It is hypothesized that compounds with demonstrated efficacy on tumors developed in situ in animal models will have a higher success rate after translation to the clinic, as these scenarios will more faithfully recapitulate the conditions under which human tumors grow. The ability to image tumors in situ rapidly and with high sensitivity using the IVIS imaging system, and the correlation between tumor size and the amount of emitted light, indicate that the IVIS imaging system provides a mechanism to rapidly evaluate potential therapeutic compounds. The imaging system can be likewise applied to any other disease state in which disease burden can be quantified (e.g. the number of bacteria in the systemic circulation). Other important applications include the following: Infectious disease Inflammation Gene therapy Stem cell biology Cardiovascular disease Immunology Transplantation biology

Soil Renaissance

1301 West 22nd Street, Suite 906 Oak Brook, IL 605234Farm Foundation, NFP and the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation initiated the Soil Renaissance to advance soil health and make soil health the cornerstone of land use management decisions. The Soil Renaissance focuses on the role of soil health in vibrant, profitable and sustainable natural resource systems, as well as the critical importance of soil and soil health in meeting the challenge of feeding 9 billion people by 2050. While Farm Foundation, NFP and the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation are leading the Soil Renaissance, collaboration will be the linchpin to its success. No single person or organization can fully address the diverse and complex issues of soil health across the nation and the world. Advancing soil health requires a sustained effort by all stakeholders. This endeavor began in the fall of 2013 when 25 soil health thought leaders, working in industry, academia, research, government agencies and production agriculture, came together at the Noble campus in Ardmore, Okla., to talk about soil health. The Ardmore Group identified the four pillars around which the Soil Renaissance is built: economics, measurement, research and education. Those thought leaders then enlisted other stakeholders to be part of the Strategic Planning Team. Their efforts produced the vision and mission statement, and the guiding principles for Soil Renaissance work, as well as goals in each of the work areas, identifying objectives and strategies to achieve each goal.
