(Wellcome Trust) CARB-X partnership announces funding for global scientists racing to discover new antibiotics. Scientists in India, Ireland, France, Switzerland, the US and UK are to share up to US$17.6m to speed treatments drug-resistant infections. Show More Summary
Scientists have come up with a new way to predict potentially useful drugs from a pool of undefined chemicals. They were able to more quickly identify leads that could be used to treat a range of diseases, from infections, to cancer to Alzheimer's. The finding will also help better match drugs to a disease to maximize the benefit and reduce side-effects.
A new study indicates that climate scientists may have underestimated the amount of global warming that has already occurred by as much as 20 percent. But that doesn’t mean that it’s any hotter outside. It’s a matter of hotter relative...Show More Summary

Dark matter is the aptly named unseen material that makes up the bulk of matter in our universe. But what dark matter is made of is a matter of debate.
(University of Washington) Scientists have used data from the intergalactic medium -- the vast, largely empty space between galaxies -- to narrow down what dark matter could be.
For years, scientists have assumed that the interior of the Moon is dry. However, a new study of satellite data has located numerous volcanic deposits around the moon - which could indicate large quantities of water trapped beneath its surface. Show More Summary
The discovery could 'spur a new area of Alzheimer's disease research,' say the scientists, who found a new pathway of neuronal loss in the condition.
(Brown University) Using satellite data, Brown University researchers have for the first time detected widespread water within ancient explosive volcanic deposits on the moon, suggesting that its interior contains substantial amounts of indigenous water.
A potential new therapeutic strategy for a difficult-to-treat form of ovarian cancer has been discovered by Wistar scientists. The findings were published online in Nature Cell Biology
Geoengineering is a catch-all term that refers to various theoretical ideas for altering Earth's energy balance to combat climate change. New research from an international team of atmospheric scientists published by Geophysical Research...Show More Summary
It’s A Plastic World The world has made more than 9 billion tons of plastic, says new study Robert Ferris, 19 July 2017 (CNBC) “More than 9 billion tons of plastic have been made since the 1950s, and the vast majority of it has beenShow More Summary
One of the hardest parts in drug discovery is pinning down how a medicine actually works in the body. It took nearly 100 years to uncover the molecular target of aspirin, but even with cutting-edge technology, it can take years to untangle how drugs interfere with cells. Show More Summary
A new study of satellite data finds that numerous volcanic deposits distributed across the surface of the Moon contain unusually high amounts of trapped water compared with surrounding terrains. The finding of water in these ancientShow More Summary
At Purdue University scientists have developed a new surgical glue that’s based on the proteins of sea mussels and other animals. The material, which is able to stick to objects while immersed in a water environment, has recently been tested and shown to work better than existing commercially available products. While sutures and staples work in most […]
(Rockefeller University Press) An international team of scientists has developed a method to rapidly produce specific human antibodies in the laboratory. The technique, which will be described in a paper to be published July 24 in the...Show More Summary
Scientists at Nagoya University have developed a new way to make stimuli-responsive materials in a predictable manner. They used this method to design a new material, a mixture of carbon nanorings and iodine, which conducts electricity and emits white light when exposed to electricity. Show More Summary
