Sweden's Karolinska Institute says a leading stem cell scientist accused of unethical behavior has been cleared of scientific misconduct though he sometimes acted without due care.

A large group of researchers set out to repeat 100 experiments published by leading psychology journals to see how often they would get the same results. The answer: Less than half the time.
A defect in how proteins are transported inside cells may be at least partially responsible for some symptoms of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, according to a new study.
Young adults diagnosed with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adolescence show differences in brain structure and perform poorly in memory tests compared to their peers, according to new research.
Vitamin D has been studied extensively in relation to bone health as well as cancer. Now, a team has discovered that vitamin D may play a significant role in eye health, specifically in the possible prevention of age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, among women who are more genetically prone to developing the sight-damaging disease.
New cost-effective material which mimics natural ‘extracellular matrix’ has allowed scientists to capture previously unseen behavior in individual plant cells, including new shapes and interactions. New methods highlight potential developments for plant tissue engineering.
Researchers say they have discovered some of the first steps in how a very common gene mutation causes the brain damage associated with both amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).
New findings suggest hope for preventing a common running injury.
Visual cortex of blind children can be remodeled to process language.
A small proof-of-principal study by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center found an automated speech analysis program was able to differentiate between at-risk young people who developed psychosis and those who did not, with 100 percent accuracy.
Klinefelter syndrome is the most common disorder of the male sex chromosomes, yet is rarely diagnosed in children. A new assessment tool is being developed by researchers to help pediatricians detect the physical traits of the syndrome. The tool could pave the way for early interventions that prevent and treat a range of physical, psychological, social, and cognitive impairments.
One in four patients treated with the widely used anti-cancer drug cisplatin develop chronic kidney disease. To better understand how the treatment leads to kidney damage, and possibly prevent it, a team of researchers developed a new 3D-imaging technique to peer deep into these vital organs.
Nanoengineers used an innovative 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots -- called microfish -- that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically controlled.
A pediatricians' group is recommending that infants at high risk of peanut allergies be given foods containing peanuts before they turn 1.
