Oceans Center Revived

The Scripps Center for Oceans and Human Health is being revitalized thanks to a $7.35 million grant award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The funds will be awarded over five years and support scientific study of marine contaminants such as heavy metals and microplastics and their effect on seafood security; the importance of nutrients found in seafood to human health; and climate change’s impact on consumption of seafood’s nutrients and contaminants.

The center was last funded from 2013 to 2018 and along with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, is comprised of researchers from UC San Diego’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the School of Biological Sciences, as well as NOAA’s California Sea Grant and the Southwest Fisheries Science Center.

Contaminants entering the body through our food is becoming an increasing health concern, and San Diego is a leading region in researching the topic, as well as businesses looking for solutions. Our annual sustainability in business special report kicks off on page 1 this week with a story about San Diego materials science company Algenesis which is developing a plastics alternative that fully biodegrades, sparing the oceans – and us – from microplastics.

The La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) was recently gifted a new instrument from BD Biosciences that will enhance the institute’s Flow Cytometry Core, which harnesses instruments called flow cytometers and cell sorters to detect different kinds of immune cells within different types of samples. The new instrument, a BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorter, will join LJI’s four existing cell sorters, which can detect over 28 different colors of fluorescent antibodies. Scientists can tag specific proteins with this wide array of colors to find rare types of immune cells. The BD FACSDiscover S8 Cell Sorter can detect even more colors and also provides image analysis. Along with the cell sorter, LJI was given a “Center of Excellence” distinction by BD.

San Diego State University announced last week a partnership with Alaska Airlines, making Alaska the official airline of SDSU Athletics and Snapdragon Stadium. The three-year deal was negotiated by Del Mar-based JMI Sports and includes making the airline entitlement of the stadium’s southeast gate where there will be giant plane replica to greet Aztec and other events fans as they enter the gate. Another perk of the deal for the airline: Alaska Visa cardholders and Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan members using the airline’s mobile app will have expedited entry through a dedicated lane at all Snapdragon Stadium events, including NCAA Football, National Women’s Soccer League, Major League Soccer, international soccer, rugby and concerts.
