Elucidating how the production of antibodies is regulated, one cell at a time

A study coordinated by Luís Graça, principal investigator at the Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes (iMM; Portugal) and Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of…

Warm ice may fracture differently than cold ice

New study suggests old rules on how ice breaks may not always hold up. Researchers at Aalto University in Finland have found strong evidence that warm ice – that is,…

Parasites as fountains of youth: Study finds infected ants live much longer

Life expectancy of tapeworm-infected worker ants is significantly higher than that of their uninfected nest-mates and resembles that of ant queens. Ant workers that are infected with a tapeworm live…
