(Press-News.org) Marine Resource Economics (MRE) is proud to announce the appointment of Sunny Jardine as the journal’s new Editor in Chief, effective January 8, 2024. Jardine is an associate professor and the Rae S. and Bell M. Shimada Endowed Faculty Fellow in Memory of Warren S. Wooster in the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs at the University of Washington.
Professor Jardine has supported MRE as a long-time associate editor. In that capacity, she handled papers across a range of marine and resource economics applications. She brings expertise in commercial fisheries management, conservation planning, the economics of harmful algal blooms, and seafood markets.
“I know that with this new role comes the responsibility of maintaining the journal's legacy of excellence as we navigate uncharted waters,” Jardine explained. “Over the past six years, the world has witnessed substantial changes, with impacts on marine resources, from record-breaking global ocean temperatures to unprecedented levels of aquaculture production. The quality and breadth of contributions to MRE, during this period, have not only inspired me, but instilled in me great confidence that our journal is well positioned to provide valuable insights into the evolving challenges and opportunities we confront in managing our marine resources.”
Professor Jardine replaces Joshua K. Abbott, who began as Editor in Chief in 2017. Under his leadership, MRE has added a section specifically for case studies, and improved the citation rate of MRE papers.
“Sunny has established a strong and growing reputation as a versatile scholar in the economics of marine and coastal resources,” wrote Abbott. “This includes work in the domains of capture fisheries management, coastal communities, adaptation to climate-mediated stressors, and seafood markets. She is an ideal candidate to evaluate and promote the next generation of economic research on oceans.”

Mayo Clinic and Columbia University receive $10.6 million grant from NCI to advance glioblastoma research with mathematical oncology
Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center and Columbia University received a five-year, $10.6 million U54 center grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to further study combining the molecular analysis of glioblastoma with MRI. Glioblastoma is a fast-growing and aggressive brain tumor that begins as a growth of cells in the brain or spinal cord. As it grows, it can invade and destroy healthy tissue. There is no cure, but treatments may slow the cancer's growth and reduce symptoms. Glioblastoma is a diverse cancer, which means ...
A new ultrasound patch can measure how full your bladder is
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- MIT researchers have designed a wearable ultrasound monitor, in the form of a patch, that can image organs within the body without the need for an ultrasound operator or application of gel. In a new study, the researchers showed that their patch can accurately image the bladder and determine how full it is. This could help patients with bladder or kidney disorders more easily track whether these organs are functioning properly, the researchers say. This approach could also be adapted to monitor other organs within the body by changing the location of the ultrasound array and tuning the frequency ...
Cognitive and emotional well-being of preschool children before and during the pandemic
About The Study: Pandemic-exposed children (assessment after March 11, 2020) had significantly higher problem solving and fine motor skills at 24 months of age but lower personal-social skills compared with non-exposed children in this study including data from the Ontario Birth Study. At 54 months of age, pandemic-exposed children had significantly higher vocabulary, visual memory, and overall cognitive performance compared with non-exposed children. Authors: Mark Wade, Ph.D., C.Psych., of the University of Toronto, is the corresponding author. To access the embargoed study: Visit our For The Media website ...
Social determinants of health and perceived barriers to care in diabetic retinopathy screening
About The Study: This study of 11,000 participants with type 2 diabetes found that food insecurity, housing insecurity, mental health concerns, and the perceived importance of practitioner concordance were associated with a lower likelihood of receiving eye care. Such findings highlight the self-reported barriers to seeking care and the importance of taking steps to promote health equity. Authors: Sophia Y. Wang, M.D., M.S., of Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, is the corresponding author.

The CABBI team demonstrated an innovative way to modify these molecules, a groundbreaking discovery that holds promise for new industrially relevant chemical reactions and sustainable energy solutions. Central to their ...
Hospitals serving large Black, Hispanic populations have fewer resources for cancer care
Key takeaways UCLA researchers looked at nearly 4,400 hospitals across the U.S., including 864 with high numbers of Black and Hispanic patients. Hospitals serving Black, Hispanic and other racial and ethnic minority patients were significantly less likely than other hospitals to have access to core cancer services like PET/CT scanners, robotic surgery and palliative care. The researchers say further work is need to understand how geographic, linguistic, cultural, cost and discrimination factors affect these cancer care disparities. Among the nation’s ...
Introducing EUGENe: an easy-to-use deep learning genomics software
Deep learning — a form of artificial intelligence capable of improving itself with limited user input — has radically reshaped the landscape of biomedical research since its emergence in the early 2010s. It’s been particularly impactful in genomics, a field of biology that examines how our DNA is organized into genes and how these genes are activated or deactivated in individual cells. Despite this synergy, genomics researchers wanting to employ this technology are often challenged by the actual coding necessary to analyze vast pools of dense data. Now, ...
Hunger hormones impact decision-making brain area to drive behavior
A hunger hormone produced in the gut can directly impact a decision-making part of the brain in order to drive an animal’s behaviour, finds a new study by UCL (University College London) researchers. The study in mice, published in Neuron, is the first to show how hunger hormones can directly impact activity of the brain’s hippocampus when an animal is considering food. Lead author Dr Andrew MacAskill (UCL Neuroscience, Physiology & Pharmacology) said: “We all know our decisions ...
Epidemic-economic model provides answers to key pandemic policy questions
University of Oxford news release Institute of New Economic Thinking Embargoed until Thursday, 16 November 2023, 16:00 GMT Is lockdown an effective response to a pandemic, or would it be better to let individuals spontaneously reduce their risk of infection? Research published today suggests these two highly-debated options lead to similar outcomes. A ground-breaking economic-pandemic model, created by an international team of researchers, addresses some of the key policy debates of the Covid-19 pandemic but it ...
New research advances understanding of cancer risk in gene therapies
Medical research has shown promising results regarding the potential of gene therapy to cure genetic conditions such as sickle cell disease and the findings of this study, published in Nature Medicine, offer important new insights into processes happening in the body after treatment. The present study looked at samples from six patients with sickle cell disease who were undergoing gene therapy as part of a major clinical trial at Boston Children’s Hospital. The research brought together an international team of experts, to take a closer look at the genetic changes in the stem cells of patients before and after gene therapy ...
