Women are less welcome than men in fields—including philosophy, physics, math, and music composition—where brilliance is viewed as more important than effort, says a co-ed Princeton University/University of Illinois group in a recent Science.
After undergoing surgery to remove diseased sections of the colon, up to 30 percent of patients...
As technology evolves and becomes further integrated into society, massive amounts of data are...
The Thermo Scientific Heracell VIOS incubator series is ideal for academic research and...
EMD Millipore expanded its Cellvento CHO cell culture media portfolio of chemically defined, non-animal origin media formulations to include new products that specifically address DHFR negative cell lines.
The President briefly mentioned the project during the State of The Union earlier this week.
Researchers at The University of Manchester have, for the first time, shown that video-based therapy for families with babies at risk of autism improves infants’ engagement, attention and social behaviour, and might reduce the likelihood of such children developing later autism.
The government's health insurance website is quietly sending consumers' personal data to private companies that specialize in advertising and analyzing Internet data for performance and marketing.
Times have changed. It used to be that an apple a day kept the doctor away. But three recent studies indicate this mantra could be changed to “a blueberry- avocado-cocoa-bean-smoothie a day” keeps the doctor away—if the doctor is a cardiologist.
These factors may not be enough to finally end the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer, with only 6 percent of patients surviving five years after diagnosis. Today, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) and The Lustgarten Foundation jointly announce the development of a new model system to grow both normal and cancerous pancreatic cells in the laboratory.
When am I going to recover? It’s a common question from patients, yet a difficult one for physicians to answer. In an effort to better predict recovery over time for patients who undergo spine surgery, Northwestern Medicine investigators are monitoring physical activity using Fitbit trackers in an ongoing study.
The Thermo Scientific Q Exactive Focus LC-MS/MS is designed to make the qualitative and quantitative power of Orbitrap-based instruments available to customers who use quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometry or other technologies.
Colds can come from cold noses, according to a high-profile study in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
The CESI 8000 System for Biologics Characterization from AB Sciex, a separation-electrospray ionization system for mass spectrometry (MS), combines of capillary electrophoresis (CE) and electrospray ionization (ESI) technologies to create an integrated workflow solution.
The lab-grown tissue should soon allow researchers to test new drugs and study diseases in functioning human muscle outside of the human body.
These companies have an interesting year ahead of them.
The Ion Mobility Software from Protea Biosciences Group is now available on a Waters Synapt G2S High Definition mass spectrometer as a powerful extension to Protea’s portfolio of mass-spectrometry-based molecular imaging services.
For the first time, the genome of a mammal longer-lived than man has been sequenced: the bowhead whale, who lives 200-plus years, and gets far less cancer given its size.
Advion Inc. introduced an affordable, high-performance liquid chromatography system to complement its line of expression compact mass spectrometers (CMS).
In the coming year, while consumers will be treated to a dizzying array of augmented reality, wearables, and low-cost 3-D printers, computer researchers will be tackling the underlying technology issues that make such cutting-edge consumer electronics products possible.
Space-mapping brain neurons do not “light up” in scans when exposed to the virtual reality (VR) at work in kids’ video games, the way they do in the “real world.” The neurons—found in the hippocampus—only mirror the “reality” state some 50 percent of the time.
We’ve been imbibing alcohol for ten million years, and the start of that long drinking binge coincided with our descent from the trees. So alcohol may have brought us (along with lots of hangovers), some measure of our humanity.
EPFL scientists have managed to get rats walking on their own again using a combination of electrical and chemical stimulation. But applying this method to humans would require multifunctional implants that could be installed for long periods of time on the spinal cord without causing any tissue damage.
New Year’s weight loss resolutions are in full swing, but despite all the hype about the latest wearable tracking devices, there’s little evidence that this technology alone can change behavior and improve health for those that need it most, according to a new online-first viewpoint piece in JAMA.
For the first time, scientists have made human sperm and egg precursor cells from human adult skin cells. The work, detailed in a recent paper in Cell, could ultimately change the age at which women stop having children.
An investigatory panel hired by the Riken Institute in Toyko, Japan recently issued reports finding that STAP “acid bath” stem cells were, in the main, simply garden-variety embryonic stem (ES) cell lines.
The idea that breast cancer becomes more prevalent with age is fairly well established, but the reasons why are still uncertain. Now, scientists from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have new insights into why older women are more susceptible to breast cancer.
Some of the most important advances in breast cancer this year were related to all kinds of heterogeneity: within tumors, between tumors in a single patient, and between tumors in early and later stages, according to oncologists speaking at conferences, and contacted by Bioscience Technology.
