Teach Me in 10 Hub Page
At Technology Networks we understand the importance of time. That's why we've launched Teach Me in 10 a video series that challenges scientists to present and summarize their research area, a scientific concept, or technology in ten minutes or less.
Gut Microbiome Changes Identified After Spinal Cord Injury
A pilot study led by Professor Phillip Popovich has placed focus on how traumatic SCI might impact the gut microbiome – the population of microbes inhabiting the digestive tract. We spoke to study author Ahmed Zayed to find out more.
Cryopreservation: Applications and Advances
In this article, we explore the challenges with cryopreservation and the emerging advances that could improve these methods.
Exploiting Genetics To Improve Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
In this article, we will explore how advances in genetics and liquid biopsy can be exploited to enhance cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The COVID-19 Whack-a-Mole
As the pandemic enters its second year, the case for optimism has grown shakier. SARS-CoV-2 has been mutating. New variants have arisen in the United Kingdom, Brazil and South Africa, and seem intent on evading our remarkable new vaccines before we’ve even fully rolled them out.
Exploring Mental Health in Academia
In this article, we explore why academia and research can be hard on an individual's mental health, speaking directly with the individuals and organizations that are championing mental health discussions in this space, and highlight areas where we're perhaps falling short and could improve.
What the COVID-19 Pandemic Taught Us About Flexibility in Vaccine Manufacturing
In this article, we will explore the manufacturing strategies and tools that the biopharmaceutical industry adopted to make such efficient COVID-19 vaccine production possible.
The Ras Pathway and Cancer: Regulation, Challenges and Therapeutic Progress
In normal health, Ras signaling is central to the regulation of intracellular signaling networks involved in cell proliferation, growth and survival. Like many cellular signaling pathways, however, the Ras-related cascade has a dark side. Mutations in the RAS gene itself, or in upstream or downstream regulators, can push the pathway into a constitutively active, cancer-inducing state.
DNA Repair Hotspots and “Super-Agers”: An Interview With Fred “Rusty” Gage
Fred “Rusty” Gage is president of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. After his recent plenary at the British Neuroscience Association’s Festival of Neuroscience, we spoke with Gage about his research into how our DNA repairs itself and how Alzheimer's disease causes neurons to undergo and identity crisis.
The Coronavirus Pandemic
On December 31, 2019, the first cases of a novel coronavirus were identified in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. Here, we curate a collection of news and content related to what has become the COVID-19 pandemic.
