(University of Pennsylvania) In a new investigation, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania identified two proteins that regulate whether a cell in plant roots forms a hair cell, which increases surface area for absorption, or a non-hair cell. Plants that overexpressed one of these regulators thrived despite being deprived of a key nutrient, phosphorous.
(DOE/Pacific Northwest National Laboratory) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is collaborating with three small businesses to address technical challenges concerning hydrogen for fuel cell cars, bio-coal and nanomaterial manufacturing.
(Frozen Food Foundation) New research presented today via poster presentation at the 2017 Experimental Biology meeting shows consumers who eat frozen fruits and vegetables eat more fruits and vegetables overall. In fact, consumers of frozen fruits and vegetables also have significantly greater intakes of key nutrients, such as potassium, fiber and calcium.
(The University of Montana) New research by the University of Montana and its partner institutions gives insight into how forests globally will respond to long-term climate change.
(University of Connecticut) Researchers at UConn Health used stem cells derived from patients with Angelman syndrome to identify the underlying neuronal defects that cause the rare neurogenetic disorder, an important step in the ongoing search for potential treatments for Angelman and a possible cure.
(Worcester Polytechnic Institute) When the standard malaria medications failed to help 18 critically ill patients, the attending physician in a Congo clinic acted under the 'compassionate use' doctrine and prescribed a not-yet-approved malaria therapy made only from the dried leaves of the Artemisia annua plant.

(La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology) Professor Klaus Ley, M.D., has been selected as this year's winner of the Eugene M. Landis Award, the Microcirculatory Society's top honor, in recognition of his pioneering work in vascular biology and microcirculation. Show More Summary
(VIB (the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology)) Researchers at the Jules Bordet Institute - Université libre de Bruxelles, VIB and KU Leuven published this 21 of April an important study offering a better understanding of the progression of breast cancer. Show More Summary
(Umea University) Traditional toxicological investigations performed on animals (in vivo) are expensive, time-consuming and may cause animal suffering. But research from Umeå University demonstrates that a neuronal cell model, derived from mouse, can be used to evaluate the neurotoxic effect of chemicals. Show More Summary
(Elsevier) Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, today announced the launch of Personalized Medicine in Psychiatry, a new journal dedicated to advancing basic, clinical and therapeutic knowledge of personalized medicine in psychiatry.
(University of Helsinki) Analysis methods based on spatial data can help estimate the success of European nature conservation programs. For her doctoral dissertation, Aija Kukkala used Zonation, a conservation and land use planning software...Show More Summary
(University of Stirling) The rapid decline of ancient ice sheets could help scientists predict the impact of modern-day climate and sea-level change, according to research by the universities of Stirling in Scotland and Tromsø in Norway.
(Waseda University) Researchers compared the photosynthetic regulation in glaucophytes with that in cyanobacteria, to elucidate the changes caused by symbiosis in the interaction between photosynthetic electron transfer and other metabolic pathways. Show More Summary
(Hokkaido University) Cells in the brain's master circadian clock synchronize voltage rhythms despite asynchronous calcium rhythms, which might explain how a tissue-wide rhythm is maintained.
(St. Michael's Hospital) The researchers who reported last year that more male babies than expected were being born to Indian-born women living in Canada have now found the numbers are driven by women whose mother tongue is Punjabi and, to a lesser extent, Hindi.
(Diamond Light Source) Scientists have utilised Diamond Light Source to develop a new method to extract previously hidden information from the X-ray diffraction data that are measured when resolving the three-dimensional (3-D) atomic structures of proteins and other biological molecules.
(University of Bath) Vaccines and antibodies could be transported and stored without refrigeration by capturing them in tiny silica 'cages', a discovery which could make getting vital medicines to patients much easier, cheaper and safer.
(University at Buffalo) Women at the highest genetic risk for fracture benefit the most from hormone therapy, according to a first-of-its-kind study led by researchers at the University at Buffalo.
(European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases) New research suggests it is possible to quickly and accurately diagnose some the most dangerous and drug-resistant types of bacterial infections, using equipment already owned by most hospitals.
(European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases) Testing for molecular markers in the urine of kidney transplant patients could reveal whether the transplant is failing and why, according to research presented at the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.
