Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.


Fat Sense: Scientists Show We Have a Distinct Taste for Fat

July 24, 2015 9:04 am | by Seth Borenstein, AP Science Writer | News | Comments

Move over sweet and salty: Researchers say we have a distinct and basic taste for fat, too. But it's nowhere near as delicious as it sounds.


‘Stem Cell Factories’ of the Future?

July 24, 2015 8:54 am | by Bevin Fletcher, Associate Editor | News | Comments

Scientists from the University of Nottingham in England have discovered a fully man-made substrate that could produce billions of human embryonic stem cells and move laboratory-based research to industrial-scale biomedicine.  The research, published in the journal Advanced Materials, could lead the way for what the team calls ‘stem cell factories’ – the mass production of human pluripotent stem cells.


Special Report: Do Stem Cell Telomeres Drive Most Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis Cases?

July 24, 2015 8:53 am | by Cynthia Fox, Science Writer | Articles | Comments

Dysfunctional telomeres—molecular caps that keep chromosomes from unraveling like shoelace nubs—may be critical to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), which kills in two to three years.


Global Bioabsorbable Scaffolds Market will Rocket Beyond $2B by 2021

July 24, 2015 8:10 am | by Amen Sanghera, Medical Devices Analyst, GlobalData | Articles | Comments

Understanding a Cell Component Integral for Mechanical Stability

July 24, 2015 8:05 am | by Northwestern University | News | Comments

A human cell’s cytoskeleton – the protein network that supports its shape and function – is made of three components. Scientists know a lot about two of them but they’ve only recently had the technological advances to study the dynamics of the third in detail. In a new pair of studies scientists help explain how this third component – slender, threadlike structures called intermediate filaments – moves and assembles to protect cells.


Kiwi DNA Study Reveals Bird Lost Color Vision

July 24, 2015 8:04 am | by The Associated Press | News | Comments

Scientists say they have sequenced the genome of the brown kiwi for the first time, revealing that the shy, flightless bird likely lost its ability to see colors after it became nocturnal tens of millions of years ago.


Scientific CMOS Camera

July 23, 2015 11:01 am | Product Releases | Comments

QImaging offers the optiMOS Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera for fluorescence microscopy. An alternative to traditional CCD cameras, optiMOS captures fast cellular dynamic events across a larger field of view without compromising sensitivity.

New Rice Crop Could Feed World, Curb Climate Change, Study Says

July 23, 2015 10:57 am | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

Half the world’s population depends on rice to survive. That human population continues to grow by the billions in the 21st century. But, rice crops are releasing massive amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas. Now, a group of researchers has unveiled a genetically modified super rice that has more starch, yet releases a fraction of the harmful methane.
