Homemade Microscope Reveals How Viruses Cling to Our DNANews
Using a homemade, high-tech microscope, scientists at the School of Medicine have revealed how a cancer-causing virus anchors itself to our DNA. That discovery could pave the way for doctors to cure incurable diseases by flushing out viruses, including HPV and Epstein-Barr, that now permanently embed themselves in our cells.READ MORE

Engineers have developed a miniature, ultra-low power injectable biosensor that could be used for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is small enough to be implanted in the body just beneath the surface of the skin and is powered wirelessly by a wearable device, such as a smartwatch or patch.READ MORE
It is well known that individuals with a particular version of human leukocyte antigen have an increased risk for rheumatoid arthritis, but there has been growing interest in the role of environmental pollutants. In a new mouse study, researchers probed the relationship between the two.READ MORE
For those who live in arid climates year-round, water shortages are a constant concern. In these areas, residents must capitalize on even the smallest bit of moisture in the air. Now researchers have developed a type of “harp” to harvest fresh water from fog.
