News Articles Featuring Patrick Drew

Patrick Drew named interim director of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences

Patrick Drew, professor of engineering sciences and mechanics, of neurosurgery, of biology and of biomedical engineering and associate director of the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, has been selected to serve as interim director of the Huck Institutes with the appointment of Troy Ott as dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences at Penn State. Drew’s position will be effective July 1.

Engineering professor named AIMBE fellow

Patrick Drew was inducted into the 2024 class of fellows for the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Drew also has affiliations with the departments of biomedical engineering, neurosurgery, and biology.

Researchers publish how-to guide for monitoring and analyzing brain activity

Penn State researchers have developed a set of tools and methods to better monitor and analyze sleep-related signals and fidgeting in rodent brain studies. Considered the bedrock of biomedical research, rodent studies often provide the first advanced understanding of brain activity and are the foundation on which human studies are eventually built.

Increased blood flow during sleep tied to critical brain function

Our brains experience significant changes in blood flow and neural activity during sleep, according to Penn State researchers. Such changes may help to clean out metabolic brain waste that builds up during the day.

Some neurons target tiny cerebral blood vessel dilation

Neurons control blood flow in tiny vessels in the brain, but researchers know little about this relationship. Now a team of Penn State engineers has found a connection between nitric oxide expressing neurons and changes in arterial diameters in mice, which may shed light on brain function and aging.

Want to Increase Brain Oxygenation? Locomotion May Be Key

Sometimes, it takes neuroscientists much longer than one might expect to substantiate everyday observations that seem like common sense.

Respiration key to increase oxygen in the brain

Contrary to accepted knowledge, blood can bring more oxygen to mice brains when they exercise because the increased respiration packs more oxygen into the hemoglobin, according to an international team of researchers who believe that this holds true for all mammals.

Patrick Drew named associate director of Penn State’s Neuroscience Institute

Drew succeeds David Vandenbergh in an important role promoting Neuroscience research and education at University Park.

Sense of smell, pollution and neurological disease connection explored

A consensus is building that air pollution can cause neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease, but how fine, sooty particles cause problems in the brain is still an unanswered question. Now a team of Penn State researchers, using mice, have found a possible way, but more research is still needed.

Institutes of Energy and the Environment announces seed grant recipients

Several Huck researchers are among the recipients of 2018-19 IEE seed grants.
