The Wellcome Trust support to give access to papers

As reported by The Guardian, The Wellcome Trust has added its support to a campaign to break traditional academic journals and allow free online access to research papers.

The campaigners say that the results of public and charity-funded scientific research should be freely available to anyone who wants to read it, for whatever purpose they need it. An estimated 9,000 researchers have already signed up to a boycott of journals with restricted sharing to help revolutionise the spread of knowledge and promote an “academic spring”.

However this intervention of the Wellcome Trust, the largest non-governmental funder of medical research after the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is likely to incite it by forcing academics it funds to publish in open online journals.

Sir Mark Walport, the director of Wellcome Trust which spends more than £600m on scientific research a year, said “that they would soon adopt a more robust approach with the scientists it funds, to ensure that results are freely available to the public within six months of first publication”

Leicester scientists-produce plastic from eggshells

CNN reported that scientists from the University of Leicester are currently working on a project creating plastic from eggshells.

The aim of the current project is to adapt the proteins found in egg shells called glycosaminoglycans to create a starch-based plastic that could then “bulk up” existing plastics and be turned into anything from shop fitting to supermarket meal trays. One aim is for recycled shell to be used in protective packaging for eggs.

Just Egg, a UK-based mayonnaise and hard-boiled egg manufacturer, uses around 1.3 million eggs every week, creating around 10 tons of eggshell waste. According to the firm, it spends approximately £30,000 ($48,000) each year sending nearly 500 tons of shells to landfills.

Therefore if the egg shells could be recycled it would be environmentally better and could save on waste management.

GKN are the first in UK to automate composite repair

The Engineer reported that GKN Aerospace is to be the first UK-based user of a new machine that can significantly speed up the production and repair of complex composite structures and reduce cost by 60%

GKN Aerospace with its partner SCLR Lasertechnik has installed the first prototype robotic machine using laser technology to remove damaged composite structure on aircrafts. The new robotic cell, housed at GKN Aerospace’s composites research centre in the UK, replaces the time consuming, manual grinding away of damaged structure with a precise, contact and vibration-free laser removal process.

GKN will first use the equipment to develop prototype wing boxes as part of the Next Generation Composite Wing programme led by Airbus and sponsored by the Technology Strategy Board.

The first stage of the development is likely to cost £37 million but if planning consent is given tomorrow then the park could be finished by the end of the year. A city council planning spokesman said: “The proposal would have many significant positive regeneration impacts for the science park and the wider area.”

Shale Gas Fracking in Lancashire could create 50,000 jobs

The Independent reported today that Lord Browne former Chief Exec of BP and now Director of Cuadrilla (a shale gas fracking company) in an interview has said that Lancashire has the potential to be the capital of Europe’s emerging shale gas industry, which in theory could help to create as many as 50,000 jobs across the UK.

“My own view is that Lancashire has huge potential … If they had the will they could perhaps become the centre of shale gas for Europe, much as Aberdeen became the centre of oil and gas for Europe. It is not inconceivable,” Lord Browne told The Independent.

However the UK’s sole operational fracking site located near Blackpool and run by Cuadrilla  was suspended last June. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is examining the report and said it expected to make a decision “soon” on the future of  fracking at the Cuadrilla site and across the UK. Fracking is known as hydraulic fracturing, fracking is the process used to dislodge natural gas from shale by blasting a mixture of sand, water and chemicals into the rock.

Lord Browne, who is hopeful that the Government will approve Cuadrilla’s plans to resume fracking, said the shale gas industry “will be of enormous benefit to the nation if it works out well. We could potentially double the reserves of gas in the UK, we could add 50,000 jobs maybe, and probably even reduce the price of gas.”

GSK to invest £500 million in the UK including a new facility in Cumbria

BBC News have reported that GlaxoSmithKline have released a press statement today confirming that it will invest more than £500m in the UK across its manufacturing sites to increase production of key aspects for its pharmaceutical products and vaccines.  This investment could create up to a 1000 new jobs.

GSK also announced a new manufacturing facility to be built in Ulverston in Cumbria. The biopharmaceutical facility will be its first new UK factory for 40 years.

Investment will also be made at the company’s two manufacturing sites in Scotland at Montrose and Irvine.

These investments represent one of the largest commitments to the UK life-sciences sector in recent years.  They follow confirmation by the Government in the Budget yesterday that it will implement a ‘patent box’ to encourage investment in R&D and related manufacturing in the UK, by introducing a lower rate of corporation tax on profits generated from UK-owned intellectual property

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “This is excellent news, a major investment that will create many highly skilled jobs and provide a great boost to the economy….We have a world class life sciences industry, and I am determined not just to keep it here in the UK but significantly increase it too… Our innovative life sciences strategy and ground breaking patent box are already making a difference, helping to grow this important industry and ensure the great discoveries of the next decade happen here in British laboratories.

Scientists have found the key to staying slim could be in your genes

The Daily Mail reported that scientists have found that the key to staying slim could be in your genes.  Scientists believe they have found the ‘gluttony gene’ which fails to tell your brain when you are full.

Researchers at Georgetown School Healthcare Hub in the U.S conducted a research project using mice. In the study they found that a single gene broke down communication in the body and led to non-stop eating and rapid weight gain.

Generally after a meal, the activity of this gene transmits chemical signals down a chain of brain cells until they reach the hypothalamus, which receives the message that you are full and suppresses the appetite. However the mice which had a mutation of this gene ate twice as much as those without the mutation.

Scientists hope that identifying the gene could help with treatments for obesity which affects nearly one in four adults in the UK.
