Finally I found something related to this journal: http://www.facesulavirtual.net/pcc/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Revista8.pdf

Journal

Commented on Cell Reports Methods
Cell Reports Methods is an open access, multidisciplinary journal from Cell Press publishing significant methodological advances of broad utility. Their manuscripts present new methods, toolkits, and empirical studies that inform the use of methods.

Article

Commented on Sericin for Tissue Engineering
Sericin, a hydrophilic protein with a high serine content, ranges from 10 to 400 kDa and is produced in the silkworm's middle silk gland. Its molecular weight, biological activity, and chemical structure vary with the extraction method, influencing its applications. Once discarded by the textile industry, sericin is now being developed in the biomedical field for its beneficial properties, particularly in tissue engineering for burn dressings, drug delivery, bone regeneration, cartilage regeneration, and nerve regeneration.

Article

Commented on Tissue Engineering of Skin
Each of us is a self-organizing assembly of multiple cell types. From the fertilization of the embryo, our tissue structures develop until we reach adult morphology. At that stage, our ability to self-organize focuses on maintaining this morphology despite daily insults and the aging process. When an injury exceeds our regenerative repair capacity, scar tissue forms as a result.

Article

Commented on Biomechanics and tissue engineering
The development of artificial scaffolds for musculoskeletal applications, particularly in load-bearing situations, necessitates careful consideration of biomechanical aspects to ensure both integrity and function. However, biomechanical loading can also promote tissue formation through mechanotransduction phenomena. Scaffold design can leverage this intrinsic mechanical loading to enhance tissue regeneration.

Funding

Commented on CBRN-E detection capacities in small architecture
Seems a big grant!

Hub

Commented on Grant Writing Hub
NIH has published grant-writing tips for investigators, see this link: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/how-to-apply-application-guide/format-and-write/write-your-application.htm And they have webinars from time to time, it is quite helpful!

Journal

Commented on Humanities & Social Sciences Communications
Collections at HSS Comms provide a high-profile venue for topics of substantial interest to the community. Papers included in a Collection are published in the journal and featured on our Collection page.

Journal

Commented on Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities
The journal is calling for submissions to the new Collection on Reducing Poverty and Its Consequences, in support of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Article

Commented on Noninvasive Lung Water Determination Using Novel Radiofrequency Technology: Clinical Validation
A miniature patch applied externally and utilizing low energy radiofrequency waves was tested in humans to assess pulmonary congestion. The RFLW measurements showed excellent correlation with invasive standard measurements, demonstrating the accuracy of RF technology for high-resolution thoracic fluid monitoring. This technology could enhance in-hospital pulmonary congestion management and potentially reduce re-hospitalizations when used for home monitoring of congestive heart failure (CHF).

Article

Commented on Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a critical global health issue predicted to cause 10 million deaths annually by 2050 due to the misuse and overuse of antimicrobials, particularly antibiotics. Addressing AMR requires coordinated international efforts, including public awareness, health literacy, and multidisciplinary approaches such as the "One Health Approach" to ensure the continued effectiveness of antimicrobials for human and animal health.

Commented on Carbon Quantum Dots Derived from Spent Local Liberica Coffee Ground for Applications in Electric Double-layer Capacitor (EDLC)
How can CQDs derived from locally sourced spent coffee grounds enhance the performance of flexible electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) compared to traditional carbon materials?

Webinar

Commented on Navigating Wildfire Smoke: Understanding, Mitigating, and Communicating Health Risks
The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) is dedicated to advancing the environmental health profession by providing education, training, and resources to environmental health professionals. They work to ensure the highest standards of public health protection and environmental safety through certification programs, advocacy, and partnerships.

Funding

Commented on Integrated University Program – Scholarship and Fellowship Support
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) aims to award multiple cooperative agreements to accredited U.S. two- and four-year colleges and universities (Institutions of Higher Education, or IHEs). These IHEs will receive and manage scholarship and fellowship funds provided through the Integrated University Program (IUP), administered by the Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE). The selection of students for these scholarships and fellowships will be conducted through a separate DOE-NE process.
