Everest’s Wildlife Mysteries Are Being Solved With Environmental DNA
A team of scientists used environmental DNA (eDNA) to document the breadth of high-alpine biodiversity present on Earth’s highest mountain, 29,032-foot Mt. Everest (8,849 m).
Some Food Proteins Help To Prevent Food Immune Intolerance
Certain food proteins can cause white blood cells in the immune system, T-helper cells, to become dysfunctional, suppressing food intolerance.
Common Steroid Could Improve Prostate Cancer Radiotherapy Outcomes
A new study suggests that unwanted side effects of radiation treatments for prostate cancer could be reduced by the common steroid betamethasone.
3D Cell Culture: Will Organoids Add a New Dimension to Disease Modeling?
This article explores the world of organoids, their benefits and limitations, and where they may play a role in the future of disease modeling.
Radically Rethinking Scientific Publication: The “Octopus” Model
Dr. Alexandra Freeman believes that the major problems associated with research culture in science can be traced back to one source: the current scientific publishing model. In this interview with Technology Networks, she explains why a novel approach, called Octopus, is a logical solution to these issues.
How To Accelerate Vaccine Production – And Avoid Speed Bumps
In this article, we discuss key challenges in vaccine development scale up, highlighting various strategies for overcoming them.
Developing Novel Cell Therapies by Rewiring T-Cell Genomes
In a recent Teach Me in 10 episode, Dr. Theo Roth discussed what targeted pooled knock-in screens are, how he is working to accelerate the discovery of cell-based therapies and how this process could reduce the time it takes to transition these therapies from the lab to the clinic.
