(Imperial College London) The superbug MRSA uses decoys to evade a last-resort antibiotic, reveals new research.The findings, from scientists at Imperial College London, suggest potential new ways of tackling the bacteria, such as interfering with the decoys.
(Imperial College London) New research is shedding light on how leukemia cells can survive cancer treatment, suggesting new possibilities for stopping them in their tracks.
(Imperial College London) A mild sedative could greatly reduce the risk of people experiencing delirium after an operation, according to new research.
(Imperial College London) The maths of collective behavior has provided a new technique for selecting the best semen for artificial insemination in livestock.
Researchers at Imperial College London have published a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that reports a gene therapy treatment carried out on mice that prevents the development of Alzheimer's disease.
(Imperial College London) A study in which free-foraging bee colonies were placed in the field has shown that pesticide exposure can affect colony development.
(Imperial College London) Scientists at Imperial College London have discovered a feedback mechanism at the heart of photosynthesis that protects plants from damage by light.

Scientists at Imperial College London have discovered a feedback mechanism at the heart of photosynthesis that protects plants from damage by light.
(Imperial College London) Researchers have prevented the development of Alzheimer's disease in mice by using a virus to deliver a specific gene into the brain. The early-stage findings, by scientists from Imperial College London, open avenues for potential new treatments for the disease.
It’s called Renewables Ninja and researchers at Imperial College London believe that it can estimate the total amount of energy that can be generated by solar and wind in any part of the world. The web tool includes a map which you can click on and then run the program to get the estimates you need.
(Imperial College London) Scientists have created a material that could make reading biological signals, from heartbeats to brainwaves, much more sensitive.
Dates in the future may not happen in coffee shops — instead, you might just sit in your living room with a virtual reality headset, according to a recent report from Imperial College London and eHarmony. Released in late 2015, the report...Show More Summary
New research reveals that the brain becomes more "integrated or unified" on LSD. Maybe the hippies were onto something.A study at Imperial College London shows what really happens to the brain during LSD-induced hallucinations.SEE ALSO:...Show More Summary
A team at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre (CSC), based at Imperial College London, has found an important part of the machinery that switches on a gene known to protect against Alzheimer's Disease.
(Imperial College London) A single injection of a new treatment has reduced the activity of the gene responsible for Huntington's disease for several months in a trial in mice.
Originally published on Imperial College London. Researchers have created an interactive web tool to estimate the amount of energy that could be generated by wind or solar farms at any location. The tool, called Renewables.ninja, aims to make the task of predicting renewable output easier for both academics and industry. Show More Summary
(Imperial College London) Researchers have created an interactive web tool to estimate the amount of energy that could be generated by wind or solar farms at any location.
(ETH Zurich) ETH researcher Stefan Pfenninger and his colleague Iain Staffell from Imperial College London have developed new multi-decade simulations of wind power production in Europe. In doing so, they have uncovered significant distortions in the data used in the past, and have produced fresh simulations of wind power output with country-specific corrections.
At the London Centre for Nanotechnology, a project organized by University College London and Imperial College London, researchers developed novel nanoscale drug delivery vesicles that can be designed to selectively release only certain cargo. Show More Summary
