Engineering bacteria to intelligently sense and respond to disease states, from infections to cancer, has become a promising focus of synthetic biology. Rapid advances in genetic engineering tools have enabled researchers to "program" cells to perform various sophisticated...
Leukemia treatments often leave girls infertile, but a procedure developed by researchers at the University of Michigan working with mice is a step toward restoring their ability to be biological mothers. Ovarian follicles are the "nests" that carry eggs...
Researchers describe a new set of 'rules' that predict how the tissue of origin influences critical aspects of the genetic makeup of tumors, with potentially important therapeutic implications.
The timing of a hurricane is one of the primary factors influencing its impact on the spread of mosquito-borne infectious diseases such as West Nile Virus, dengue, chikungunya and Zika, according to a study led by Georgia State...
In a first-ever advancement in human medicine and aviation technology, a University of Maryland unmanned aircraft has delivered a donor kidney to surgeons at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) in Baltimore for successful transplantation into a...
Working memory is central to our mental lives; we use it to add up the cost of our shopping or to remember the beginning of this sentence at its end. Some scientists argue it is particularly developed in...
University of York researchers have designed an app to help new parents become more 'tuned in' to what their babies are thinking and feeling. The app, called BabyMind, prompts the parent to think about things from their baby's perspective...
Scientists have discovered a gene variant that sheds new light on how human immunity was finetuned through history. Findings from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Flinders University and other scientists show modern humans acquired a gene variant from Denisovans...
Young Australians are less likely to over-indulge in booze and illicit drugs because they like to keep up appearances in their social media-sphere, according to a Flinders University expert on substance abuse and addiction. Professor Ann Roche, Director of National...
Blocking the processes that drive cancer cell growth is at the heart of many new anti-cancer therapies. Unfortunately, after initial success, cancer cells are generally able to develop workarounds to reactivate the pathways that promote growth. Work by...
