Having a parasite infection common in the developing world means it is more likely you will also come down with tuberculosis--and scientists finally know why.

The IACUC Administrator’s Guide to Animal Program Management assists IACUC administrators charged with developing, managing, and overseeing a program of animal care and animal use. It provides many options and possibilities for specific operational practices (e.g., how to build a well-functioning IACUC, what a functional protocol template looks like) to satisfy regulatory requirements.
norament® xp, from nora systems, Inc., was featured in Building Design + Construction (BD+C) magazine’s 2015 GreenZone demonstration building at Greenbuild 2015, November 18-19 in Washington, D.C.
Researchers from the University of Bristol have gained a new insight into how the circadian clock responds to changes in temperature.
When a high-fat diet causes us to become obese, it also appears to prompt normally bustling immune cells in our brain to become sedentary and start consuming the connections between our neurons, scientists say.
Exercise increases levels of a brain-protecting enzyme in mice, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University. This finding could have implications for people with a variety of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's, and epilepsy.
Champion of regeneration, the freshwater polyp Hydra is capable of reforming a complete individual from any fragment of its body. It is even able to remain alive when all its neurons have disappeared. Researchers have discovered how: cells of the epithelial type modify their genetic program by overexpressing a series of genes, among which some are involved in diverse nervous functions.
As humans have begun to live longer it has become clear that the quality of our lives is equally as important as the duration.
A new study found that gastrointestinal bypass surgery, which is used to treat morbid obesity and diabetes, reduced sugar-seeking behavior in mice by reducing the release of a reward chemical called dopamine in the brain. The findings suggest that positive outcomes are more likely if sugary foods seem less rewarding after surgery.
Cancer researchers at the University of Cincinnati have found a new target that could lead to therapies for a rare type of tumor.
The simple act of running may be sufficient to prevent long-term cognitive impairments caused by prenatal exposure to antiepileptic drugs, according to a study published November 19th in Stem Cell Reports.
During embryonic development, billions of neurons nimbly reposition themselves within the brain and spinal cord, and connect branches to form the neural circuits that ultimately control our movements, perception, and memory. Scientists have long sought to understand the driving forces in this meticulously choreographed dance.
Use Terra’s new control systems to automatically control fan/filter units in modular cleanrooms to achieve desired air change rates and room pressure. Multiple Tier levels with increasing feature availability and sophistication are available to match your cleanroom size, floor-plan complexity and budget.
Using technology invented at MIT, doctors may one day be able to monitor patients’ vital signs by having them swallow an ingestible electronic device that measures heart rate and breathing rate from within the gastrointestinal tract.
Diabetes is often the result of obesity and poor diet choices, but for some older adults the disease might simply be a consequence of aging. New research has discovered that diabetes—or insulin resistance—in aged, lean mice has a different cellular cause than the diabetes that results from weight gain (type 2).
Northwestern Medicine scientists and international colleagues have identified a novel strategy for reducing the side effects of uncontrolled movement caused by the drug levodopa, commonly used to treat the stiffness, tremors and poor muscle control of Parkinson’s disease.
