  • Electronic map reveals 'rules of the road' in superconductor December 6, 2019
    Using a clever technique that causes unruly crystals of iron selenide to snap into alignment, physicists have drawn a road map that reveals the quantum ''rules of the road'' that electrons must follow in the enigmatic superconductor.
  • 'Junk DNA' affects inherited cancer risk December 6, 2019
    A person's risk of developing cancer is affected by genetic variations in regions of DNA that don't code for proteins, previously dismissed as 'junk DNA', according to new research. This new study shows that inherited cancer risk is not only affected by mutations in key cancer genes - known as oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes […]
  • Tick box questionnaire could significantly improve esophageal cancer survival rates December 5, 2019
    A simple health questionnaire could be a highly effective tool to pre-screen people for early signs of esophageal cancer, enabling much earlier diagnosis and treatment, finds a new study.
  • BPA levels in humans dramatically underestimated December 5, 2019
    Researchers have developed a more accurate method of measuring bisphenol A (BPA) levels in humans and found that exposure to the endocrine-disrupting chemical is far higher than previously assumed. The study provides the first evidence that the measurements relied upon by regulatory agencies, including the US Food and Drug Administration, are flawed, underestimating exposure levels […]
  • Study seeks to answer whether effects of 'abortion pill' can be reversed December 5, 2019
    Women who initiate medical abortion but opt to stop in the middle of treatment may be at risk for serious blood loss, a study finds. Researchers found this is true even for women who use an experimental treatment that claims to 'reverse' the effects of the abortion pill. The study provides important insights into the […]
  • Assistance during first years of biology major leads to higher retention of first-gen students December 5, 2019
    Assistance during the first years of a biology major leads to higher retention of first-generation students.
  • Open source EEG visualization tool December 5, 2019
    Researchers have developed a free open source computer program that can be used to create visual and quantitative representations of brain electrical activity in laboratory animals in hopes of developing countermeasures for opioid use disorder.
  • Behavioral interventions may be as effective at reducing food intake as anorectic drugs December 5, 2019
    Simulations predict that behavioral interventions such as imposing strict no-food restrictions after meals can be as effective as strong anorectic drugs in reducing food intake in rodents, according to a study.
  • Newly engineered peptide shows potential as long-acting anti-HIV drug December 5, 2019
    A newly engineered peptide called IBP-CP24 has the potential to be further developed as a long-acting anti-HIV drug that can be used alone or in combination with a broad neutralizing antibody for the treatment and prevention of HIV-1 infection, according to a new study.
