A research team has sequenced the genome of a 45,000-year-old modern human male from western...
All travelers who come into the U.S. from three Ebola-stricken West African nations will...
The Bertarelli Program in Translational Neuroscience and Neuroengineering, a collaborative program between Harvard Medical School and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, has announced a new set of grants worth $3.6 million for five research projects.
Drawing blood and testing it is standard practice for many medical diagnostics. As a less painful alternative, scientists are developing skin patches that could one day replace the syringe.
Scientists have described a way to convert human skin cells directly into a specific type of brain cell affected by Huntington’s disease, an ultimately fatal neurodegenerative disorder.
Researchers are facing increasing demands from colleagues, peers and publishers for process documentation including adequate controls, and for extensive documentation of experimental parameters. Without such consideration, there would be little chance to repeat, or even validate, findings.
For scientists, the field of proteomics has always been a double-edged sword. On one hand, technologies such as 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) capture a vastly improved picture of protein expression in action. But when others try to reproduce the experiment? The findings can suddenly appear blurry.
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.
People who shared an apartment with the country's first Ebola patient are emerging from quarantine healthy. And while Thomas Eric Duncan died and two U.S. nurses were infected caring for him, there are successes, too: A nurse infected in Spain has recovered, as have four American aid workers infected in West Africa. Even there, not everyone dies.
The JSX-1000S ElementEye from JEOL is an easy-to-use, smart solution for high-sensitivity elemental analysis and complements SEM, EPMA, NMR and mass spectrometry.
Ever wondered how people figure out what is fair? Look to the brain for the answer. According to a new study, people appreciate fairness in much the same way as they appreciate money for themselves, and also that fairness is not necessarily that everybody gets the same income.
A group of scholars issued a statement skeptical about the effectiveness of so-called "brain game" products, citing that the scientific track record does not support the claims that these games actually help older adults boost their mental powers.
Researchers have successfully transplanted “organoids” of functioning human intestinal tissue grown from pluripotent stem cells in a lab dish into mice– creating an unprecedented model for studying diseases of the intestine.
The Chameleon Pre-stained Protein Ladders from LI-COR offer the unique advantage of multi-colored visible and two-color near infrared (NIR) fluorescence detection in a single ladder.
A surprise discovery that overturns decades of thinking about how the body fixes proteins that come unraveled greatly expands opportunities for therapies to prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, which have been linked to the accumulation of improperly folded proteins in the brain.
The seemingly miraculous power of babies’ hearts to repair themselves after being injured has spurred a research team to investigate if this ability can be harnessed for new heart attack treatments.
In acute asthma, various triggers, including viral illnesses and aeroallergens, can cause acute narrowing of the airways leading to a life-threatening respiratory crisis and sometimes death. Researchers have identified a novel factor that puts the brakes on airway smooth-muscle contraction relevant to asthma.
As San Diego’s ViaCyte was in the midst of launching the first FDA-approved embryonic stem (ES) cell clinical trial for diabetics last week, Boston’s Harvard University reported that cells made from ES cells “cured” diabetic mice.
Alexa Fluor 680/790 secondary antibodies from Abcam plc are for use in fluorescent western blotting.
Using ultrasound to deliver power wirelessly, researchers are working on a new generation of medical devices that would be planted deep inside the body to monitor illness, deliver therapies and relieve pain.
The second health care worker diagnosed with Ebola in Texas is a 29-year-old nurse who treated the Liberian man who died of the disease in a Dallas hospital.
Lethal fibrosis in lungs of mice with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) can be reversed, say researchers. No drug on the market can do this. But the crew pulled it off, in mice, by temporarily restoring (a mimic of) one of the body’s own anti-fibrosis agents, sharply reduced in IPF: microRNA-29.
The discovery of a cellular snooze button has allowed a team of scientists to potentially improve biofuel production and offer insight on the early stages of cancer.
Results of a small clinical trial suggest that a chemical derived from broccoli sprouts— and best known for claims that it can help prevent certain cancers— may ease classic behavioral symptoms in those with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
A team of scientists and engineers developed a new surface coating for medical devices using materials already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The coating repelled blood from more than 20 medically relevant substrates the team tested.
The Acid Storage Cabinet from HEMCO is specifically designed for the storage of corrosive chemicals.
