The purpose of this repository is to collect tissue and blood specimens of non-melanoma skin cancers for future studies. The aim is to create a single, annotated bio-repository of non-melanoma skin cancers. Additionally, they may create cell lines and patient-derived tumors from collected samples. This study is going to lead by Dr. Aaron Mangold.

This research study will test different doses of RG-HRV16 to find the minimum dose needed to give research subjects cold symptoms of at least moderate intensity. The study will also test the safety of RG-HRV16. This study represents a first-in-human, phase 1 study to assess the safety of RG-HRV16 in humans and identify the dose needed to produce moderate-to-severe colds in 75% of HRV16-seronegative human volunteers.

Gastric bypass surgery has been proposed as an effective treatment strategy for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), but thus far algorithms for the management of T2DM immediately after surgery have not been established. The investigators designed an algorithm to achieve good glycaemic control in patients with insulin-requiring T2DM upon discharge after gastric bypass surgery and evaluated this algorithm for feasibility, efficacy, and safety

The International study on NoSocomial Pneumonia in Intensive CaRE (PneumoINSPIRE) is a prospective, international, multicentre, observational, cohort study. The study aims to provide up-to-date and generalisable information on current worldwide epidemiology and clinical practice associated with diagnosis and management of nosocomial pneumonia in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients. PneumoINSPIRE study is endorsed by the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM).
