It has a large State University, with many students, from downstate, so how bad can it really be?

BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY TO USE $329K GRANT FOR RESEARCH ON DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

VESTAL, N.Y. — A Binghamton University professor will use grant funding of $329,000 for research focused on Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).

Kanneboyina Nagaraju, professor and chair of the department of pharmaceutical sciences, and his team at Binghamton University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will use the funding, the school said in a news release.

Hackensack, New Jersey–based Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD), a nonprofit organization that says it is “leading the fight to end DMD,” awarded the funding.

With the monetary assistance, Nagaraju will continue his work examining the body’s immune response to the production of new dystrophin protein resulting from “exon skipping” and gene-therapy treatments.

Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting about one in 5,000 live male births.

Caused by a change in the dystrophin gene, the disease robs muscles of the ability to function or repair themselves properly, per the release.

Duchenne currently has no cure, but researchers are pursuing both exon skipping and gene therapy as potential treatments that may slow its progression. As the name implies, the goal of exon skipping is to encourage the cellular machinery to “skip over” an exon that has been deleted by Duchenne muscular dystrophy and interfered with the rest of the gene’s development, according to the website of Muscular Dystrophy UK.

Binghamton University says Nagaraju hopes to understand the effect these treatments may have on the body’s immune system.

“Long-term immunological consequences of dystrophin gene correction and gene-replacement therapeutic strategies in DMD are currently unknown,” Nagaraju said. “This project will explore interventions that modulate inflammation and immune response after gene and exon skipping therapies. I am really excited that PPMD recognized the merits of the studies proposed in this grant.”

PPMD has funded research aimed at treating Duchenne for almost 25 years and “finally” therapies like exon skipping and gene therapy are “near term.” Abby Bronson, PPMD’s senior VP of research strategy, said in the Binghamton news release.

“Now we need to look ahead to optimize the effectiveness of these promising new therapies,” said Bronson. “We believe there is great value in the work Dr. Nagaraju and his team are doing — work that could improve the post-treatment outcome of these potential therapies.”

BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY TO USE $30M IN STATE FUNDING TO COMPLETE NURSING SCHOOL BUILDING

JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. — Binghamton University will use a $30 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative (URI) grant to finalize the nursing school building and other projects on its Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City.

The nursing school will be housed in a former Endicott-Johnson shoe-box factory, Empire State Development (ESD) said in a Friday news release. It’ll be co-located with Binghamton’s new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

The new round of funding will also allow Binghamton University to “acquire and develop” private industry co-location space in a “historic” building and support the creation of an eldercare facility.

“The state support to date in our Health Sciences Campus in Johnson City has already led to an incredible return on investment,” Harvey Stenger, president of Binghamton University, contended in the ESD release. “This latest award to help Binghamton University finish the new campus will go a long way in transforming Johnson City’s economy. The $30 million will allow us to build, rehabilitate and equip buildings on our Health Sciences Campus and get us across the finish line.”

The state awarded the Southern Tier $500 million through the URI, which Gov. Cuomo announced in December 2015.

Friday’s announcement complements “Southern Tier Soaring,” the region’s economic-development blueprint.

About the Health Sciences Campus

The initial anchor for the Johnson City campus, the new School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, opened last fall. Constructed with $60 million in state funding, the school is creating more than 100 jobs and will include about 390 students “at full enrollment.”

It’ll have an annual regional economic impact of about $100 million, per the ESD news release.

The final phase of this project will complete the school’s Health Sciences Campus in the “formerly blighted urban core” of Johnson City, ESD said. Binghamton University is also making improvements to its science buildings on campus supporting chemistry, physics, biological sciences, and psychology, the agency added.

More passengers flew from Binghamton airport in 2018: What it means for future flights

For the first time since 2010, the Greater Binghamton Airport announced Thursday it saw an increase in passenger traffic from 2017 to 2018, weeks before an additional Delta flight is planned to be added to the airport's schedule.

Flights' load factors, or the percentage of seats filled, increased year over year from 75 percent to 80 percent.

Total enplanements, or aircraft boardings, went up from 32,019 to 36,647 during the same time period.

Broome County Commissioner of Aviation David Hickling pointed to the community's support as the reason for the growing numbers, including marketing efforts by the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce and Broome County Executive Jason Garnar.
