Naked mole rats possess unique machinery that allows them avoid cancer and still live for up to 30 years.
Research conducted in China has made way for potential treatment options for treating breast cancer metastasis in lymph…
Questions surrounding the nature of asymptomatic cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been present since near the beginning of the pandemic. A…
Do commercial hand sanitizers work on coronavirus? In the lab, yes. Studies are needed using real human hands, which come with ethical challenges.
A study suggests that small mammals like rodents have adapted to thrive on human-influenced land. They also happen to carry a lot of human pathogens. This…
A potential way to speed up vaccine development: human challenge trials. #covid19 #research
Poor sleep found to predict depression symptoms in pre-teens The occurrence of depression increases drastically in adolescence, especially among girls. New research has found that sleep disturbances (trouble falling/staying asleep or sleeping too much) predicted future depression symptoms in pre-teens.
Can poor sleep predict depression symptoms up to a year later in pre-teens? New research supports this hypothesis.
What if your own immune system cells could be genetically engineered to treat your cancer? The future is now!
Why are some cancers harder to fight than others? By analyzing the cells of one of the most difficult cancers to treat, liver cancer, scientists may begin to have answers.
The brain of one of popular culture’s most infamous dinosaurs helps to clarify its diet and hearing range.
A new way to detect ET life using chemical profiles Rather than detecting one chemical at a time, scientists taught machine learning algorithms what different mixtures of compounds from living and non-living sources “look like” to chemical analyzers. The computer then used those fingerprints to correctly identify living and non-living samples in the lab!
Researchers found a new way to tell the difference between the chemicals of life and the chemicals of non-life...using machine learning!
How can molecules evolve to become more complex, to the point that smaller ones might eventually become large, complex, biological organisms?
Humanity grows and nature gets smaller. Earth now has more human-made stuff than all living #biomass. But how do we even measure something like that?
Professor Contractor Noshir knows how to help you get along better with your coworkers. He studies the interpersonal dynamics of crews in extreme environments, like a 3 year mission to Mars!
How can astronauts grow plants in space, or farm on Mars? This is the subject of much ongoing research, and one study found that activating a key cellular process using red light may be a big part of the answer. Because plants can’t move around the way animals can, they have to be very flexible and adaptive to…
