A UNC Lineberger-led study found that people with higher-risk melanoma containing either BRAF or NRAS gene mutations had lower survival rates.
Device can insert ‘cargo’ into 100,000 cells per minute, up from current standard of 1 per minute.
In a feat that would have been unachievable only a few years ago, researchers at UC San Francisco have pulled aside the curtain on a protein informally known as the “wasabi receptor,” revealing at near-atomic resolution structures that could be targeted with anti-inflammatory pain drugs.
California saw a record number of deaths from the West Nile virus last year, and the state's drought may have contributed to the spike in infections, according to health officials.
A test for a wide range of genetic risk factors could improve doctors’ ability to work out which women are at increased risk of developing breast cancer, a major study of more than 65,000 women has shown.
Electrical recordings directly from the human brain show remarkable precision in the coordination of widely distributed regions involved in memory recall, at rest and during sleep.
Bioresearch equipment provider Labnet International launched a new addition to the company’s constant temperature equipment line with the release of the new AccuTherm Microtube Shaking Incubator.
French biopharmaceutical company DBV Technologies moves closer to bringing its peanut allergy patch to market, receiving Breakthrough Therapy Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as it prepares to launch its Phase 3 trial.
New research shows that males with higher ‘reproductive potential’ are better distance runners. This may have been used by females as a reliable signal of high male genetic quality during our hunter-gatherer past, as good runners are more likely to have other traits of good hunters and providers, such as intelligence and generosity.
The Fountain of Youth has been discovered and it's not in Florida as Ponce de Leon claimed. Instead, it was found in the mammary glands of genetically modified mice.
Discovery could offer a new target for treatment of glioblastoma.
At Experimental Biology 2015 the Public Affairs Advisory Committee for the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology held a panel discussion titled Who Should Fund Biomedical Research?
When children are unmotivated at school, new research suggests their genes may be part of the equation.
Investors did not seem pleased by these results.
Torrey Pines Scientific announces its new EchoTherm stackable/programmable vibration free chilling incubators for protein crystallography and other life science uses. The incubators are 27 liter capacity and Peltier-based for heating and chilling.
