Sweden's Karolinska Institute says a leading stem cell scientist accused of unethical behavior has been cleared of scientific misconduct though he sometimes acted without due care.

A team has developed a technique to build tiny models of human tissues, called organoids, more...
Researchers have for the first time created and used a nanoscale vehicle made of DNA to deliver...
Scientists have developed a potentially promising new combination therapy for glioblastoma, the most common and deadliest form of brain cancer.
Chest pain is a symptom of coronary artery disease, and patients are often sent to a cardiac catheterization lab either directly or after stress testing for an invasive procedure to detect blockages. But cardiac catheterization can be avoided in many patients, according to new findings.
Researchers have made strides toward a new method of gene sequencing a strand of DNA’s bases are read as they are threaded through a nanoscopic hole. In a new study, they have shown that this technique can also be applied to proteins as way to learn more about their structure.
You can use wearables with GPS to keep track of wandering dogs. Others help you track animals' physical activity.
People with type 2 diabetes may have a greater buildup of tangles of protein in their spinal fluid, irrespective of dementia, according to a new study published Sept. 2 in Neurology.
Earth's first big predatory monster was a weird water bug as big as Tom Cruise, newly found fossils show.
The hope is that this project can become a viable replacement for the current finger-stick tests for diabetes.
Your heart might be older than you are. A new government report suggests age is just a number - and perhaps not a very telling one when it comes to your risk of heart attack or stroke.
Medical research has yet to discover an Alzheimer’s treatment that effectively slows the disease’s progression, but neuroscientists may have uncovered a mechanism by which onset can be delayed by as much as 10 years.
Researchers have found that the timing of an animal's sleep can be just as important as how much sleeps it gets. Shifting sleep cycle affects immune response and sleep quality.
In use for more than a century, inhaled anesthetics like nitrous oxide and halothane have made modern surgery possible. Now, in experiments in mice, researchers have added to evidence that certain so-called "volatile" anesthetics -- commonly used during surgeries -- may also possess powerful effects on the immune system that can combat viral and bacterial infections in the lung, including influenza and pneumonia.
Frank Reyes agreed to the strange operation at Houston Methodist Hospital, and spent three weeks with his left hand surgically tucked under a pocket of tissue in his belly to give it time to heal and form a new blood supply.
This test isn’t the only one working on a solution for hearing-loss related damage.
One more reason to watch the waistline: New research says people's weight in middle age may influence not just whether they go on to develop Alzheimer's disease, but when.
Researchers have reported the first evidence that obstructive sleep apnea contributes to a breakdown of the blood–brain barrier, which plays an important role in protecting brain tissue.
