National Football League officials improperly sought to influence a government study on the link between football and brain disease, according to a senior House Democrat in a report issued Monday.
A study of Chinese older adults linked higher long-term fluctuations in blood pressure readings to increased declines in brain function and verbal memory.
What used to be dismissed by many as "junk DNA" is back with a vengeance as growing data points to the importance of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) -- genome's messages that do not code for proteins -- in development and disease. But our progress in understanding these molecules has been slow because of the lack of technologies that allow the systematic mapping of their functions.
The saltmarsh sparrow is disappearing from its home on the East Coast and could be headed for extinction in as little as 50 years, say scientists whose work could help protect the little birds.
AMSBIO has introduced two new products to assist scientists adopting organoid culture as a physiologically relevant model for organ development.
A new study identified a "sunscreen" gene that may help stave off skin cancer. The researchers found that the "UV radiation Resistance Associated Gene" is a tumor suppressor for skin cancer, which is the most common form of cancer in the United States.
Bring the drugs, hold the suds. That summarizes a promising new drug-making technique designed to reduce serious allergic reactions and other side effects from anti-cancer medicine, testosterone and other drugs that are administered with a needle.
France's health minister presented a plan on Monday to tighten the rules regarding human drug trials following an experimental test that killed a volunteer in January.
A 'cure' for cancer is elusive, but scientists are working on ways to detect -- and even prevent -- cancer cells from spreading through the body.
The CF2000 Centrifugal Field Flow Fractionation (CF3) system from Postnova Analytics enhances high resolution separation and fractionation of nanoparticles.
In a new study in mice, researchers overcame a process by which cancer co-opts a fundamental protein into protecting it against the body’s defenses.
New research on zebra finches has identified for the first time the genes that allow some bird species to produce the red pigment that plays such a critical role in attraction and mating.
A biosensor has been proven capable of detecting molecules associated with neurodegenerative diseases and some types of cancer.
The complexity of the human brain depends upon the many thousands of individual types of nerve cells it contains. Even the much simpler mouse brain probably contains 10,000 or more different neuronal cell types. Scientists report on a new approach for genetically identifying and manipulating these cell types.
A method to produce significant amounts of semiconducting nanoparticles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical applications has gained momentum with a demonstration by researchers
