Personalized Screening for Ovarian Cancer
With 60% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer dying within five years of diagnosis there has been considerable efforts to try to detect the disease at an earlier stage.
Gene Therapy for Cystic Fibrosis Shows Encouraging Trial Results
A therapy that replaces the faulty gene responsible for cystic fibrosis in patients' lungs has produced encouraging results in a major UK trial.
In Blinding Eye Disease, Trash-Collecting Cells Go Awry, Accelerate Damage
NIH research points to microglia as potential therapeutic target in retinitis pigmentosa.
Artificial Pancreas Controls Diabetes
Scientists are reporting the development of an implantable “artificial pancreas” that continuously measures a person’s blood sugar, or glucose, level and can automatically release insulin as needed.
Growing Spinal Disc Tissue
Scientists develop new method for growing spinal disc tissue in the lab for combating chronic back pain.
Imaging Individual Molecules
JILA researchers have designed a microscope instrument so stable that it can accurately measure the 3D movement of individual molecules over many hours-hundreds of times longer than the current limit measured in seconds.
Long-term Memories Are Maintained by Prion-like Proteins
Research from Eric Kandel’s lab at Columbia University Medical Center has uncovered evidence of a system in the brain that persistently maintains memories for long periods of time.
How the Mammoth Got its Wool
Evolutionary change in a gene reconstructed in the lab from the woolly mammoth was part of a suite of adaptations that allowed the mammoth to survive in harsh arctic environments, according to new research.
Chemists Design a Quantum-Dot Spectrometer
New instrument is small enough to function within a smartphone, enabling portable light analysis.
Elastic Gel to Heal Wounds
A team of bioengineers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital has developed a new protein-based gel that, when exposed to light, mimics many of the properties of elastic tissue, such as skin and blood vessels.
