The Future of Science: Humanity Takes a Front Seat
With the world of science rapidly evolving, and a new year beginning, we looked at the trends breaking through right now, asking experts: where is the world of science headed?
An Introduction to Organoids, Organoid Creation, Culture and Applications
Organoids have revolutionized biological and medical research and proven to be excellent substitutes for animal models in preclinical studies. Here, we discuss what organoids are and how they have been developed over the years to become popular research tools.
AI Algorithm Provides New Insights Into Deadly Brain Cancer
An AI algorithm has helped researchers to identify and validate two proteins that drive brain cancer progression, which could be used to stratify the disease or as therapeutic targets.
Brain Cell Changes in Alzheimer’s Disease Mapped by Researchers
Researchers have been able to reveal how brain cells change in relation to key proteins during Alzheimer's disease progression, using a new mapping technique.
Transplanted Human Brain Cells Respond to Visual Stimuli in Rat Brains
A new study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has found that human-derived brain organoids can integrate into the visual cortex of rat brains. After three months, the organoids demonstrate electrical responses to visual stimuli. The research is published in Cell Stem Cell.
Deep Dive: Can Too Much Sweetener Affect Your Grandchildren’s Anxiety?
A new study suggests that aspartame, the common sweetener, produces anxiety-like behavior in mice, an effect that was passed on to multiple subsequent generations.
Egg on Our Face: Another Asilomar Moment?
Michael Kinch confronts a recent controversy in the field of immunology, where researchers failed to seek permission or guidance from the NIAID before engineering mutant forms of SARS-CoV-2.
