BIomarkers, «sweet blood,» and more. Pick the minds of the Innovation Panel at Mellow Mushroom on August 23.

Innovation Panel:
Jeff Petruska: A Pain Killer for the Eye
Did you know that currently available drugs for eye pain are derived from cocaine? Aside from the obvious problems, these drugs are also very toxic to eye tissues. These UofL scientists serendipitously discovered a new kind of pain killer for the eye.

Michael Menze: Sweet, Sweet Blood
Drying down human blood for long-term storage has long been a science fiction trope and a challenge for biologists. These scientists are using trehalose, a sugar found in shrimp and insects (and the glaze on donuts!), to try to solve the problem.

Geoffrey Clark: A New Kind of Cancer Drug
Can computers cure cancer? UofL scientists use a sophisticated computer grid to tackle a potent cancer-promoting protein called Ras.

Plus, an introduction to patents and patent law by attorney Brantley Shumaker.

Upcoming proofs dates: September 20, October 25, November 29, December 27
