A team of researchers have discovered a chemical byproduct of ketamine that rapidly treats depression in mice, without the undesired side effects.
MilliporeSigma's Lynx CDR connectors improve fluid management in the biopharma industry. Making simple, reliable, sterile-to-sterile fluid connections is critical to successful biomanufacturing.
The Connecticut woman who underwent a face transplant five years ago after being attacked by a chimpanzee is back in a Boston hospital after doctors discovered her body is rejecting tissue from the transplant.
New research has showed substantial differences in the way human heart cells respond to e-cigarette smoke and conventional cigarette smoke.
All living cells are basically squishy balloons full of water, proteins and DNA, surrounded by oily membranes. Those membranes stand up to significant amounts of stretching and bending, but only recently have scientists started to fully appreciate the useful organization and functions that result from all that stress.
A new study finds that hormones in breast milk may impact the development of healthy bacteria in infants' guts, potentially protecting them from intestinal inflammation, obesity and other diseases later in life.
A new study suggests there may be an overlap between rare genetic variations linked to bipolar disorder (BD) and those implicated in schizophrenia and autism.
Despite significant biomedical advances in recent decades, the very earliest events of human development--those that occur during a critical window just after fertilization--have remained an unobservable mystery, until now.
Getting stitched up by Dr. Robot may one day be reality: Scientists have created a robotic system that did just that in living animals without a real doctor pulling the strings.
Scientists of all kinds turn to computer models to investigate questions they can't get at any other way. Here's how models work and why we can trust them.
Bioethicists are proposing a reexamination of an internationally recognized rule limiting in vitro research on human embryos to 14 days post-fertilization.
Two biotech companies will attempt to bring some measure of life into the brains of 20 people in India with the application of stem cells. It’s called the “ReAnima Project,” and it just received an institutional review board approval.
The SCN is the control center for our internal genetic clock, the circadian rhythms which regulate everything from sleep to hunger, insulin sensitivity, hormone levels, body temperature, cell cycles and more.
Autism and cancer share more than 40 risk genes, suggesting that common mechanisms underlying the functions of some of these genes could conceivably be leveraged to develop therapies not just for cancer but for autism as well.
They’re the top questions on everyone’s mind when a new disease outbreak happens: where did the virus come from? When did this happen? How long has it been spreading in a particular country or group of people?
