Cities must create forward- thinking and forward-doing comprehensive shared mobility plans and to ensure these transportation options are integrated to create a mobility network that is efficient, equitable, and sustainable. <br />The mobility industry (ridesource, rideshare, carshare, taxicabs, for-hire vehicles, bikeshare, and microtransit) and the services it provides are essential to economic vitality, and both the industry and services it provides must remain robust and reliable. Developing a long-term policy strategy for urban regions provides an opportunity to determine the mass mobility and transportation outcomes and to stay ahead of the curve of private-sector innovation by proactively developing the means and mechanisms to shape the future. <br />The session will focus on the development of several plans and identify major considerations for cities and transit agencies to consider.<br />Speaker will be Joe Iacobucci, the Director of Transit for Sam Schwartz Consulting.<br /> ebury@uic.edu http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160912T195353Z-31fc5b3-3e8-4bd264c7-Oracle Mon, 12 Sep 2016 14:53:52 -0000 Regenerative Sciences Seminar http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=search&amp;detailed_view=1&amp;uid=20160921T185202Z-11b69e7-3e8-411bd24-Oracle <p>Date: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;dispatch=datesearch&amp;date=10-13-2016">October 13, 2016</a> at 12:30 pm | <a href="https://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?&amp;&amp;dispatch=invite&amp;id=20160921T185202Z-11b69e7-3e8-411bd24-Oracle">Add event to my UICal</a> <br />Category: <a href="http://www.uic.edu/htbin/eventcal/eventcal.fcgi?dispatch=search&amp;search=%22Lectures,+Seminars+and+Meetings+%22">Lectures, Seminars and Meetings </a> </p> Join us for a series of informative seminars exploring a variety of topics in Regenerative Science.

Total participation in the research study will last 6 months and will include health screenings and assessments, ultrasound evaluations, and body fat analyses. In addition, subjects will be asked to provide fluid and tissue samples. Participants will undergo these procedures at UIC's Clinical Research Center and Integrated Physiology Lab. Researchers are seeking adults with high blood pressure between the ages of 18 and 50 for participation. Qualified participants will receive free body fat analyses, complete health screenings, and supervised exercise training.

Participants will receive one intravenous dose of telavancin and undergo a series of blood draws and urine collections to measure levels of telavancin in the blood and urine. At least four visits to the study site will be required, and participants will be asked to collect urine for a 12-hour overnight period.<br />Qualified participants will receive financial compensation for their time.<br />Call 312-767-8046 or E-mail telastudy@gmail.com for further information.<br />UIC IRB # 2015-1189<br />"Pharmacokinetics of Telavancin in Normal and Obese Subjects"<br />Principal Investigator: Keith A.
