Ian Anglin

Dr. Ian Anglin obtained his Ph.D. in molecular pathology from the University of Wales, College of Medicine in the United Kingdom. While writing his thesis entitled ‘Identification of Differential Gene Expression During Prostate Cancer Progression’ he contributed to a paper published in the International Journal of Cancer. Subsequently, Dr. Anglin pursued postdoctoral work at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, Baltimore in various research departments including the Division of Urology, the Greenebaum Cancer Research Center and at the BioPark Center for Vascular and Inflammatory Diseases. During his 10 years there, he mentored students, contributed to NIH grants, presented data at various scientific meetings, was awarded an AFUD scholarship and won a Gordon Research Conference Travel scholarship. He has published in Cancer Research, Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases, British Journal of Cancer and a book chapter in ‘Molecular Targeting and Signal Transduction’ edited by Dr. Rakesh Kumar.

Dr. Anglin currently resides in Baltimore MD where he is working as a freelance scientific editor for various online companies providing substantive and copyediting services.

Scientists Grow Teeth Using Stem Cells – Harvested From Urine?

Adults lose teeth due to poor hygiene, aging, disease or accidents. Traditionally, prosthetics are used to replace part or all of a lost tooth. But wouldn’t it be better if we could simply regrow lost or damaged teeth? Approaches using stem cells, while still in their infancy, may eventually do exactly that. Researchers led by Dr. Duanqing Pei, of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, have reported a potential method for growing teeth from stem cells obtained in urine.

Smelling Cancer: Device Detects Bladder Cancer From Odor of Urine

The smell of urine is not usually associated with having life-saving properties. But a new UK device called the ‘Odoreader’ can analyze urine odors and determine if bladder cancer (BC) is present. Although this is a pilot study, it has positive implications for early BC diagnosis and improved patient survival.

Functional 3D Human Liver Buds Made From Stem Cells in Mice

Researchers led by Takanori Takebe, MD and Hideki Taniguchi, MD, of Yokohama City University in Japan recently reported the first 3D vascularized organ derived from stem cells in the journal Nature. Though it is still years away from clinical trials in humans, the approach, used to generate human liver cell buds in mice, has implications for future transplantations of liver and potentially other organs in humans.

New Telescopic Contact Lens Magnifies Vision Three Times

Researchers led by Eric Tremblay from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EDFL) in Switzerland and Joseph Ford from UC San Diego have developed a new ‘Superman-style contact lens that can magnify the wearer’s vision by 2.8 times when worn with a modified pair of 3D glasses. These contacts may one day empower those suffering from macular degeneration or even augmenting the eyes of those with perfectly healthy vision.

New 3D Brain Map 50 Times More Detailed Than Previous Maps

A better understanding of the brain may help us better understand thought, behavior and neurological disorders. An improved tool to facilitate this—a new 3D map of the human brain—has recently been released. It’s hoped the map might reveal novel insights into brain function and perhaps help find cures for related diseases.

Monsanto Unapproved GMO Wheat Escapes From The Lab, Lawsuits Follow

Monsanto, the world’s largest seed company, recently reported the finding of unapproved genetically modified wheat in an Oregon field—and nobody knows where it came from. This is of concern, especially to farmers, but raises a larger question too. If genetic modification is the future, how will we control our creations?

Terrafugia Flying Car Delayed Until at Least 2015, But Still Coming They Say

Is it a plane? Is it a car? Well, so far, a flying car prototype is the best answer—and a late one at that. Massachusetts firm, Terrafugia, has been promising delivery of the Transition for almost four years. The latest missed deadline? The end of 2012, and to date, still no Transition. As you’d expect, it’s hard to build a flying car.
