This week: Are we really running out of data storage? And can a deadly infection be genetic? You’ll also get a list of must-reads this summer…
Personalised medicine has been a goal of researchers and doctors for a long time. Now, researchers have developed what they call a personalised Therapeutic Intervention Fingerprint (pTIF), for patients with neurological disease.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School have found further evidence that supports the notion that viruses could help cause the onset of Alzheimer’s disease; an idea that was once ridiculed by other sceptics and researchers.
Researchers have designed nanoparticles that can be attached to T-cells and release T-cell-stimulating molecules called cytokines, that activate T-cells to attack nearby tumour cells.
Even in light of the rising fears of “superbugs” in the world of big pharma, the marginal profits made through the development of antibiotics isn’t enough to justify the research.
Scientists have developed a technique that shows individual cancer cells in a tumour in real-time, revealing which cells that interact with a drug and which cells the drug fails to reach.
One year after researchers published their work on a physiological test for autism, a follow-up study has confirmed its exceptional success in assessing whether a child is on the autism spectrum.
Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
A new type of zebrafish that produces fluorescent tags in migratory embryonic nerve precursor cells could help researchers find the origins of the third-most common pediatric cancer in the U.S.
Males who spend time in low temperatures prior to mating will produce offspring with more active brown adipose tissue, according to new research in mice.
Scientists have discovered a “big bang” of Alzheimer’s disease — the precise point at which a healthy protein becomes toxic but has not yet formed deadly tangles in the brain.
Dogs’ ancestors in the Americas almost totally disappeared hundreds of years ago, but left future generations a cancerous tumour that is still found in their canine descendants today, researchers say.
Researchers have for the first time, used gene-editing tools in adult monkeys to disable a gene throughout much of the liver.
