i2B2 Fundamentals

i2b2 is an open-source software system that allows users to query clinical data to estimate the size of clinical cohorts available for specific studies, allows for the creation of “data marts” to support the requirements of particular studies, and supports an efficient mechanism to transfer clinical data directly to REDCap. Training is strongly encouraged before a new user may access the system.

Microbiology & Immunology Department Seminar

Synthetic Intestinal Systems for Studying Bacterial Interactions with Epithelia

Presented by John March, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Biological and Environmental Engineering Cornell University. In recent years, it has become widely accepted that in vitro intestinal models enable improved studies of intestinal function in an ethical and well controlled manner. Such research led to new insights into cellular growth and proliferation, drug absorption capabilities and host-microbial interactions. By using a combination of laser ablation and microfabrication techniques, we created a plastic template with accurate dimensions and concentrations of human small intestinal villi. Immunofluorescence revealed the increased presence of differentiation markers and improved tight junction integrity, as well as statistically significant supporting TEER values. Additionally, we have shown that the intestinal cells can be stimulated basolaterally and that the basolateral space can be analyzed for epithelial secretions that would normally be present in the blood. Co-culture data with various bacteria will also be discussed.
