New research has identified some of the processes by which molecules associated with...
With this award, Stanford has received a total of around $297 million from CIRM.
Brown fat tissue, the body’s “good fat,” communicates with the brain through sensory nerves, possibly sharing information that is important for fighting human obesity, such as how much fat we have and how much fat we’ve lost.
HIV can establish itself in the brain as soon as four months after initial infection.
Researchers have harnessed a technique known as CRISPR-Cas9 editing in an important and understudied species: the mosquito, Aedes aegypti, which infects hundreds of millions of people annually with the deadly diseases chikungunya, yellow fever, and dengue fever.
A team of researchers has validated the first standardized protocol for measuring one of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
The report studied more than 3,500 known plant species and determined that 22 percent are considered rare, in decline, endangered or possibly extinct.
Nobody likes getting the flu, but for some people, fluids and rest aren’t enough. A small number of children who catch the influenza virus fall so ill they end up in the hospital — perhaps needing ventilators to breathe — even while their family and friends recover easily. New research helps explain why: a rare genetic mutation.
Two particularly hungry, exotic termite species apparently have found love halfway around the world and, as with so many other Florida hook-ups, the results are disturbing.
Nearly 50 years after the “war on cancer” was declared in the United States, precision medicine presages an era of increased understanding of the molecular basis of cancer and of the ability to design treatments tailored to a patient’s own genetic profile, a panel of experts said.
An experimental therapy developed by researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University cut in half the time it takes to heal wounds compared to no treatment at all.
Results of a study suggest that MRI could one day make biopsies more effective or even replace them altogether by noninvasively detecting telltale sugar molecules shed by the outer membranes of cancerous cells.
Ebola has taken its greatest toll on babies. About 90 percent of children under age 1 who caught the virus in West Africa died from it, the first large study of the epidemic's impact on children suggests.
A new study shows the durability of a novel CMV based Ebola virus vaccine strategy that may eventually have the potential to reduce ebolavirus infection in wild African ape species.
MIT graduate student Bo Qing studies synthetic gels that could be used in better equipment to protect against traumatic injuries.
Using a novel approach that homes in on rare families severely affected by autism, a Johns Hopkins-led team of researchers has identified a new genetic cause of the disease.
Antibiotic resistance is poised to spread globally among bacteria frequently implicated in respiratory and urinary infections in hospital settings, according to new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
