An MRI technique has been developed to improve the detection of tumors

The way the H2O molecules move depends on whether they are inside or outside the cells. Inside the cell the water movement is somewhat restricted by organelles…

Combination antibody therapy results in long-term viral suppression in HIV infection

Antiretroviral drugs are the critical component for effective management of HIV infection. Because of the rapid development of viral resistance against single…

Iowa State engineers develop flexible skin that traps radar waves, cloaks objects

The meta-skin takes its name from metamaterials, which are composites that have properties not found in nature and that can manipulate electromagnetic waves….

Efficient conversion from spin currents to charge currents in a superconductor

A University of Tokyo research group has successfully measured the spin Hall effect in a superconductor for the first time. The spin Hall effect is responsible…

ORNL superhydrophobic glass coating offers clear benefits

The discovery by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory, detailed in a paper published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, is based on a mechanically robust nanostructured layer of porous glass film. The coating can be customized to be superhydrophobic, fog-resistant and antireflective….

Potentially targetable signaling pathway generates slowly proliferating, chemo-resistant cancer cells

“We have identified a new pathway in which well-studied signaling molecules string together to regulate cell proliferation,” said Sridhar Ramaswamy, MD, an…

Controlling movement with light

For the first time, MIT neuroscientists have shown they can control muscle movement by applying optogenetics — a technique that allows scientists to control…

Testing a paleo diet hypothesis in the test tube

While Western diets have changed dramatically in the last century to become high energy, low fiber, and high fat (think: cheeseburger), our digestive systems,…

Mechanism, and possible treatment, for immune suppression in liver disease uncovered

Liver disease, or cirrhosis, is currently the fifth leading cause of death in the UK. Cirrhosis patients are more than five times more likely to pick up…

Parallels Between Cancers, Infection Suppression Reported

The host insect is far from defenseless, however. In Drosophila (fruit flies), larvae activate humoral immunity in the fat body and mount a robust cellular…
