A molecule isolated from sea sponges and later synthesized in the lab can halt the growth of cancerous cells and could open the door to a new treatment for leukemia, according to a team of researchers.
Scientists have discovered the cells driving the annual body clock in animals which adapts their body to the changing seasons.
A new test detects virtually any virus that infects people and animals, according to research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, where the technology was developed.
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.
Researchers are using patients own platelet membranes to coat drugs and use as nanovehicles for anticancer treatments.
A group of researchers from the University of Florida at Gainesville have created a new way of printing complex objects using granular gel.
With the launch of the new LUNARIS BioChips96, AYOXXA has innovated the analysis of cytokines relevant to inflammation, immune regulation, and other biological processes.
Coffee is everywhere, through history and across the world. And increasingly, science is demonstrating that its popularity is a good thing.
A new genetic study of over 200,000 women reveals the underlying mechanisms of polycystic ovary syndrome, as well as potential interventions.
Researchers report new research that sheds light on how the retina sets its own biological rhythm using a novel light-sensitive pigment, called neuropsin, found in nerve cells at the back of the eye.
In the largest, most comprehensive genomic analysis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) conducted to date, an international research team has identified 65 genes that play a role in the disorder, 28 of which are reported with “very high confidence,” meaning that there is 99 percent certainty that these genes contribute to the risk of developing ASD.
If you have two faulty copies of the CFTR gene, you will have cystic fibrosis. But the severity of your disease will depend on environmental factors and many other genes. Locating these genes and altering their function could lead to new therapies. Now, a consortium of research institutions report that five regions of the human genome are home to the genetic variations that play major roles in CF disease severity.
Scientists have discovered and mapped a light-sensing protein that uses vitamin B12 to perform key functions, including gene regulation.
Mars appears to have flowing rivulets of water, at least in the summer, scientists reported Monday in a finding that boosts the odds of life on the red planet.
Terra provides clean, convenient storage racks to store shoes and booties. Ideal for the pre-gowning area, these racks are made of ultra-clean electropolished stainless steel and are designed with a built-in stand to lift the shelving rack off the floor.
