INDIANAPOLIS -- The IUPUI review and analysis of 19 studies is the first to examine the entire published literature and quantify the relationship between race and the use of pain-coping strategies.

"Coping" is broadly defined as the use of behavioral and cognitive techniques to manage stress. Pain coping is the specific application of these techniques for pain management.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The positive trend in vegetation greenness has been observed through satellite images, but the reasons for it had been unclear.  

After analyzing 45 studies from eight countries, Lixin Wang, assistant professor of earth sciences in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, and a Ph.D. student in Wang's group, Xuefei Lu, concluded the greening likely stems from the impact of rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide on plant water savings and consequent increases in available soil water.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jones' $1.1 million NSF CAREER Award funds the development of a novel approach to the study of cell membrane proteins in their native cellular environment -- work fundamental to gaining a better understanding of protein misfolding, which has been linked to life-limiting human diseases including cystic fibrosis. The award also supports state-of-the-art research training for undergraduate students from historically black colleges and universities as well as both undergraduate and graduate students from IUPUI, who will work on the cutting-edge science in Jones' laboratory.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Using a technique they developed specially for this purpose, the IUPUI researchers, led by principal investigator John Goodpaster, Forensic and Investigative Sciences director and associate professor of chemistry and chemical biology, analyzed tires from the vehicles of first-, second- and third-place finishers of midget car races across the United States. Approximately 15 percent tested positive for illicit chemical treatment.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Xuchen was among the youngest of contestants, competing against many experienced junior and senior students.

The Brain Bee, a twist on a traditional spelling bee, requires competitors to answer questions about the brain and nervous system until only one student, the champion, remains. Hosted by the Departments of Psychology and Biology, and the School of Science, the bee is open to students in grades 9-12.

INDIANAPOLIS -- In a study published in the November issue of ACS Nano, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Chemical Society focusing on nanoscience and nanotechnology research, the IUPUI researchers describe their design of the novel, low-cost, nanotechnology-enabled reusable sensor. They also report on the promising results of tests of the sensor's ability to identify pancreatic cancer or indicate the existence of a benign condition by quantifying changes in levels of microRNA signatures linked to pancreatic cancer.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Faculty from the Department of Earth Sciences have been awarded several grants to research topics ranging from glacial deposits in Antarctica to arc magmatism in the North Pacific. The school has at least one team on every continent conducting high-quality research that will have a significant impact.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Hill gained that distinction in August, when his tenure appointment in the School of Science took effect. At the time, he was 33 years and five months old. Because of differences in complex university systems, it is challenging to say who is the youngest African-American to become a tenured professor in computer science, but all indications are that Hill is among the two or three youngest to achieve that mark.

The thought that he might attain this distinction came up as he was about to receive his doctorate at Vanderbilt University in 2009.
