Investigating Inflammasomes Implicated in Diabetic Retinopathy

Loss of retinal capillary density and vessel leakage in Akimba mice. Isolectin-GS IB4 staining on retinal flat mount showed normal vascular bed and uniform capillary distribution in WT (A–C) mouse, which was reduced markedly in Kimba - D–F, Akita - G–I - and significantly higher in Akimba - J–L - mice. Disruption of the capillary network was noted especially around the optic disk of Akimba – K - retina. Credit: Shyam Chaurasia, UM News Bureau



Post-stroke Recovery Dictated by Genetic Variants?


Our genes may have a bearing not only on our stroke risk, but probably also on how well we recover after stroke. For the first time scientists have identified common genetic variants that are associated with outcome after ischemic stroke.


CRISPR-Chip Detects Mutations in Minutes


Researchers are the first to combine the power of CRISPR's nucleic acid targeting with the ultra sensitivity of graphene, making it possible to digitally detect DNA without amplification.


Depression in Your Twenties Linked to Memory Loss in Later Life


A new large-scale longitudinal study has found a clear link between episodes of depression and anxiety experienced by adults in their twenties, thirties and forties, with a decrease in memory function by the time they are in their fifties.
