Storing health data in the cloud is predicted to be an industry worth $1 billion by 2018.
Bioscience Technology recently chatted with Joe Landolina, the 22-year-old co-founder of Suneris...
Teen girls who exercise as little as an hour a week for three months may reduce, to a surprising...
Young female and male Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Medical School M.D.’s and Ph.D.’s receive equal numbers of key National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants, says a recent Journal of Women’s Health study.
The agency wants more insight into the company's data and marketing materials supporting the effectiveness of their product.
The wave of new and emerging technologies is significantly impacting the data capabilities and utilization of data in life sciences and drug development research. With the increasing public popularity of wearable devices and mobile health applications, coupled with growth in the use of social media, more data streams are available to researchers looking to extract meaningful information.
Doug Hilton, Ph.D., is head of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia’s oldest research institute. He has launched innovative gender-gap initiatives many scientists say far outpace those in the US. He wrote about it in Nature, and scientists reacted in Bioscience Technology. He responds here.
Nanoparticles are between 1 and 100 nanometers in size.Scientists can harness them for drug delivery, to combat disease, for filtering fresh drinking water, and much more. Now, researchers from MIT and the Federal University of Goias in Brazil have developed a new technique that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to extract man-made pollutants from soil and water.
Three studies, analyzing in different ways the leading ALS gene, came to what is being called a “remarkably” similar conclusion: the most common form of ALS may be caused by clogged pores in brain cell nuclear membranes.
A new Molecular Psychiatry study has found a robust relationship between obesity at age 50—as measured by body mass index (BMI)—and both earlier age, and severity, of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Musical talent has been located in the human brain, according to research led by a Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) team, and reported in Cerebral Cortex. Also discovered, the teams reported: a part of the brain that changes as people acquire musical skills—entirely apart from talent.
Humans are “super-predators” who kill adult land carnivores like bears and lions at nine times the rate that land carnivores do, and kill adult fish at 14 times the rate that marine predators do, says new research in Science.
Scientists are hailing an Australian institute’s unusual raft of initiatives aimed at wiping out science gender gaps.
These companies are having an interesting month so far.
Getting older isn’t all bad. New research from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland found the older population needs less sleep than younger counterparts, and feels more awake during the day.
Throughout history, information has been stored through ever-changing channels, and increasingly people store pictures, work and other important information digitally. But how do we ensure that important information can be preserved for the long-haul, for even tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years? Presenting at the ACS Conference in Boston this week, Robert N. Grass, Ph.D., ETH Zurich, suggests we look to DNA.
Microgravity environments show great promise for enhancing human health and drug discovery.
