Fine-tuning stem cell metabolism prevents hair loss

A team of researchers from Cologne and Helsinki has discovered a mechanism that prevents hair loss: hair follicle stem cells, essential for hair to regrow, can prolong their life by…

Memory training for the immune system

The immune system will memorize the pathogen after an infection and can therefore react promptly after reinfection with the same pathogen. Now, scientists at the University of Würzburg have deciphered…

Nerve cells let others “listen in”

How many “listeners” a nerve cell has in the brain is strictly regulated. This is shown by an international study led by the University College London and the universities of…

Scientists identify hormone that might help treat malabsorption

Human intestinal organoids grown from stem cells used to model congenital disorder in babies. Scientists at Cincinnati Children’s used human intestinal organoids grown from stem cells to discover how our…

Scientists advance understanding of blood-brain barrier health

Fralin Biomedical Research Institute scientists’ finding has implications for brain diseases. Hard skulls help protect our brains from physical injuries. In addition to a tough outer shell, brains have internal…

How psychedelics bind to key brain cell receptor

A scientific first This work, published in Cell and led by the UNC-Chapel Hill lab of Bryan L. Roth, MD, PhD, sets the stage for the discovery of new kinds…

Newly discovered mechanism regulates myocardial distensibility

A team of researchers headed by Münster University physiologist Prof. Wolfgang Linke has shown that oxidative stress, in combination with the extension of the heart walls, triggers a change in…

Researchers identify role of protein in development of new hearing hair cells

Finding could lead to future treatments for hearing loss Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have conducted a study that has determined the role that a…

Scientists develop low-cost chip to detect presence and quantity of COVID-19 antibodies

Light-sensing technology promises to make COVID-19 antibody testing cheaper, easier, faster and more accurate. Robust and widespread antibody testing has emerged as a key strategy in the fight against SARS-CoV-2,…

Gene test can predict risk of medications causing liver injury

Organoid-related discovery may also help drug makers screen potential pharmaceuticals. Scientists who were working on a way to determine the viability of batches of tiny liver organoids have discovered a…
