Functional human collagen has been impossible to create in the lab. Now, a team of researchers describes what may be the key to growing functional, natural collagen fibers outside of the body: symmetry.
There are no established drugs to improve angiogenesis in diabetes. However, researchers now have identified a gene called CITED2 in a molecular pathway that may offer targets for drugs that treat these conditions by strengthening angiogenesis.
Peer pressure is a proven social motivator. Researchers probed this decidedly human attribute and found that not only is virtual pressure from a computer-simulated peer just as motivating as the real thing, but that 'fake' competition is effective as well. Show More Summary

In a new study, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute offer new insights how calcium in mitochondria--the powerhouse of all cells--can impact the development of the brain and adult cognition.
Ocean acidification will affect coastal communities, particularly those that rely exclusively on small scale fisheries, a four-year study supported by the IAEA found. With populations around the globe dependent upon the sea for their livelihood and primary source of food, ocean acidification — a consequence of rising carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions — could have serious […]
As smart home features continue to emerge, so too are growing security concerns. Research has highlighted a multitude of smart home security flaws, and some have already been exploited...
With millions of motorists set to hit the road for the bank holiday weekend, drivers have been urged to close windows and turn off fans while in traffic jams to avoid breathing in dangerously high levels of air pollution. Latest research...Show More Summary

Using a new mouse model, researchers have found that stiffer arteries can also negatively affect memory and other critical brain processes. The findings, which may eventually reveal how arterial stiffness leads to Alzheimer's and other...Show More Summary
To make replication studies more useful, researchers must make more of them, funders must encourage them and journals must publish them.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ISSUE 05 CONFLICTS OF INTEREST “Conflicts of interest” are said to compromise the impartiality of research, but what would it mean to be disinterested? Ethical codes warn us that researchers’ objectivity can beShow More Summary
As arguably the world’s most active volcano, Hawaii’s K?lauea presents a unique opportunity for researchers who want to observe the Earth’s geologic processes in real-time. Even more importantly, as a goddamn erupting volcano, footage of K?lauea is gnarly as fuck. Read more...
By Gerardo Granados: While doing a research related to the pound for pound all time boxer per weight division I noticed something odd. When we talk about the heavyweights, middleweights or welterweights [...] The post Ricardo Finito Lopez and the Ring Championship Belt enigma appeared first on Boxing News 24.
This summer, I spent a month aboard a research vessel in the Indian Ocean. At one point, we crossed the equator, which meant that those of us who had never done that before were treated to a special ceremony. In fact, it was a straight-up...Show More Summary
You hate them, don't you? Research, though, claims they have a big benefit for passengers. Really?
Today I'll point out a recent selection of studies on lifestyle choices and life expectancy: the costs of bad choices and the benefits of good choices. The numbers are not particular new, but it is good to be occasionally reminded of the bounds of the possible when it comes to choice versus technology. Show More Summary
At long last, researchers have zeroed in on the neurons that act as the brain's internal thermostat. Their discovery may be harnessed for therapeutic control of body temperature in conditions where it's beneficial for temperature to be reduced, such as recovery after trauma. Show More Summary
