Use of purified Epichloë festucae antifungal protein for dollar spot control on turfgrass
­ ​ ​ Invention Summary: The dollar spot disease is a major challenge for turfgrass fields, especially golf courses. The commonly used solution to control this disease is fungicides, which can be hazardous and limited in effectiveness; thus, the need for an alternative solution is imminent. Rutgers researchers in the department of...

A Novel Vaccine Candidate Against Fungal Infection
Vaccination with a heat-killed mutant strain offers cross-protection against diverse fungal infections in a mouse model, significantly improving survival. A.) Mice vaccinated at different doses show higher survival rates when challenged with a wild strain (H99) of fungus. B.) Vaccinated mice are protected from infection by C. gattii R265 and have significantly...

A Novel Diagnostic Assay for Predicting Patients’ Resistance to mTOR Kinase Inhibitors
Invention Summary: Mechanistic Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) is a highly conserved serine/thereonine protein kinase that plays a crucial role as part of two distinct kinase complexes, mTOR1C and mTOR2C, to regulate cell growth and metabolism. Abnormal activation of mTOR has been implicated in the pathogenesis of several cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity,...
