Enumeral Biomedical Holdings, Inc. Announces Partnership Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University to Research Human Mucosal Immunology with Immune Profiling System
Mar 9 15
Enumeral Biomedical Holdings, Inc. announced that the company signed an agreement with the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University as part of Enumeral’s Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract with the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Enumeral is developing an advanced, automated prototype system for human tissue immuno-oncology profiling, which will be deployed in the laboratory of Douglas S. Kwon, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Ragon Institute. Enumeral recently announced an agreement to place the system with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Kwon’s research focuses on the immunology of mucosal surfaces and tissues, which are home to between 60 and 90% of the body’s lymphocytes, which are primary disease-fighting white blood cells. Studying these immunological compartments in human patients relies on “small volume” clinical specimens such as core biopsy, which often contain limited numbers of cells and can be challenging to analyze with conventional technologies. Enumeral’s collaboration with the Ragon Institute is supported by a Phase II SBIR contract from the NCI for $999,967 over two years. The NCI is funding the entirety of the program, which complements Enumeral’s other internal research and development efforts. Enumeral generated proof of concept in this area under a Phase I contract in 2012 and 2013. News Source: Partnership to Research Human Mucosal Immunology with Immune Profiling System.

Group of Students Sue Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the Two Schools' Failure to Provide Closed Captioning for Online Courses
Feb 12 15
A group of students are suing Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology over the two schools' failure to provide closed captioning for online courses, including audio and video materials. The discrimination suit, filed on behalf of the aggrieved students, was submitted to federal court this week in Springfield, Mass. The documents were filed by lawyers with the National Association of the Deaf. Lawyers say the schools' actions -- or lack there of -- are in violation of both the Americans With Disabilities Act and Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Officials with the National Association of the Deaf said the lawsuit specifically targets Harvard and MIT because the two higher-education institutions have been at the forefront of online education. Both schools partnered to found EdX in 2012, a massive open online course provider offering hundreds of free courses and a huge archive of free educational materials.
