Kat Arney is one of the “Top 10 Brits who make science sexy”, according to BBC America. Need we say more?
Scientists have found new genetic mutations that promote the survival of cancer cells.The research also provides a clearer understanding of how some cancer cells are able to resist treatment.
Cells made by fusing a normal human muscle cell with a muscle cell from a person with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy were able to significantly improve muscle function when implanted into the muscles of a mouse model of the disease.
The proclaim that the DNA of former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly changed during his year living in space, saying that 7% of his genes did not return back to normal when he came back to Earth is fake news.
Young, resting neural stem cells have large protein clumps often associated with neurodegeneration. As stem cells age, the aggregates inhibit their ability to make new neurons, researchers say.
In a new study with mice, researchers have discovered a new way to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) without using antibiotics.
Bacteria in the small intestines of mice and humans can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response, according to a new study.
Scientists created an odd couple: a modified version of an immune-signalling protein and a coordinately modified receptor for this protein. The two bind only to each other, easing an advanced anti-cancer therapy’s side effects.
