Pressure BioSciences and Florida International University to Develop New PCT-Based Rape Kit Test Method

Pressure BioSciences (PBI) signed a collaborative research and development agreement with Florida International University (FIU) to develop a novel rape kit test method, based on its pressure cycling technology (PCT) platform. According to Pressure BioSciences, there is a significant and urgent need for better test methods to address the national issue, as there is a current estimated backlog of 400,000 untested rape kits in the US and an estimated 180,000 new sexual assault cases annually. Pressure BioSciences has collaborated with the university to help reduce the backlog, in addition to developing improved rape kit test method. The partnership intends to make the new test commercially available within the next 18 months. For many years, the collection of biological samples on cotton swabs for forensic analysis has been standard practice, which is very difficult, as the biological sample is frequently trapped in the swab's cotton fibers, leading to a loss of crucial evidence. To address this complex problem with rape kits, the new test is being developed in which the male suspect's DNA must be isolated from a complex mixture of male and female cells. Recently, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance have provided $80 million in grants to law enforcement agencies across the country to test rape kits, prosecute cases, and support victims of sexual assault. Pressure BioSciences develops and markets laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market.

Florida International University Appoints Eneida O. Roldan as CEO FIU Health

Florida International University named Dr. Eneida O. Roldan as CEO of FIU Health, its health network and clinical practice. Roldan was in the local spotlight as CEO of Jackson Health System from 2009 to 2011 as the public health system endured a budget crisis and scores of layoffs. In 2009, she joined FIU as a founding faculty member of its Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and her role there has steadily expanded. Roldan will continue working as the college of medicine's associate deal for international affairs and an association professor of pathology. Roldan was previously chair of the American Board of Bariatric Medicine. She was also CEO of Pan American Hospital in Miami as she led it out of bankruptcy.
