Examples of Institute in a Sentence

  1. State Mike Pompeo:

    We still haven't gained access, the world hasn't gained access to the WIV( Wuhan Institute of Virology) there. We don't know precisely where this virus originated from.

  2. Gary Gibbons:

    Dr. Gary Gibbons, director of the NIH's National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute said. Blood pressure is measured by two numbers : the systolic pressure and the diastolic pressure. The systolic pressure is the top number while the diastolic pressure is the bottom number. The current blood pressure guidelines suggest that the systolic pressure( the top number) should be around 150 to 160. This study recommends that doctors try to keep the systolic pressure should be under at least 120. This is especially true for people over age 50. High blood pressure key statistics : • About 70 million American adults have high blood pressure, meaning 1 in every 3 adults • Only about half of people with high blood pressure have their condition under control. • Nearly 1 out of every 3 American adults has pre-hypertension( when the blood pressure numbers are higher than normal, but not yet in the range of high blood pressure) • Women are about as likely as men to develop high blood pressure during their lifetimes. • However, for people who are younger than 45, high blood pressure affects more men than women. For people 65 or older, high blood pressure affects more women than men. The study involved more than 9,300 people who were aged 50 and older. The study participants were all at an increased risk for heart disease or kidney disease. Half of the participants received an average of two medications which were supposed to lower their systolic pressure below 140. The other half of the participants received an average of three medications to lower their systolic pressure below 120. The results showed that the participants who were able to get their systolic pressure below 120 had significant health benefits. Those who got their systolic pressure under 120 had a 25 percent lower risk of death. They also had a 30 percent lower risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack and stroke. This study provides potentially lifesaving information that will be useful to health care providers as they consider the best treatment options for some of their patients, particularly those over the age of 50.

  3. Julieanna Hever:

    These products increase your risk for colorectal cancer significantly, the American Institute for Cancer Research suggests avoiding them altogether.

  4. Paul Northcott:

    Paul Northcott said. Grants for early investigators like Paul Northcott may also help them obtain bigger funding opportunities through the National Institutes of Health( National Institutes of Health). We're able to recruit, we're able to conduct studies that we wouldn't have been able to otherwise. This then helps us build the necessary foundation to go after National Institutes of Health funding and getting that first RO1 through the NCI( National Cancer Institute), Paul Northcott said. One of the toughest hurdles for young investigators is securing their first R01, the gold standard of grants that give scientists enough money and time to complete a project and publish results within four or five years. The budget for R01’s is unlimited. According to the director of the National Cancer Institute, Dr. Norman Sharpless, the NCI is directing their extramural funders to set aside additional funding to increase the total number of first R01's given to early-stage investigators by at least 25 percent in 2018. By training more diverse groups of scientists, organizations like the National Cancer Institute hope to spur new commitments to basic science that can drive novel approaches and technologies to cancer treatment. Paul Northcott says supporting the next generation of cancer scientists is crucial to ensuring a talented and creative research workforce for the decades ahead. Oftentimes it’s difficult to see how studying a single gene or a pathway or a biochemical mechanism might have a broader impact, but I would encourage anyone involved and anyone starting out in this type of field to think about what is the goal of Cancer Research -LRB- AACR -RRB- ? How can this research change health care, or, in this case, cancer research ?
