A new study points to a conceptually novel therapeutic strategy for treating depression. Instead...
Researchers have discovered an unexpected phenomenon in the organs that produce sperm in fruit...
Scientists have traced vulnerability to depression-like behaviors in mice to out-of-balance...
Earn GBCI credit at the 2014 TurnKey Conference, held May 13-14 in National Harbor, MD by participating in one of the following sessions: Streamlining the Vivarium Facility Performance Verification Process, Are We There Yet? Bridging the Gap between Construction and Operation, Planning for the Unthinkable in Vivarium Design, and Facility Containment & Extreme Events: A Risk-Based Approach.
A team of researchers has just demonstrated that the principle of adhesion by aqueous solutions of nanoparticles can be used in vivo to repair soft-tissue organs and tissues.
Scientists have developed a novel treatment that could protect against current, future and even pandemic strains of flu. The preventative treatment could be used as a "frontline defence" before an effective flu vaccine is developed.
Researchers have discovered interacting proteins on the surface of the sperm and the egg essential to begin mammalian life. These proteins, which allow the sperm and egg to recognize one another, offer new paths towards improved fertility treatments and the development of new contraceptives.
A class of drugs developed to treat immune-related conditions and cancer — including one currently in clinical trials for glioblastoma and other tumors — eliminates neural inflammation associated with dementia-linked diseases and brain injuries.
Researchers have developed a mutated mouse model that mimics the human mutation of an eye mobility disorder in order to understand why it occurs.
The major goal of a bio-containment operation is to maintain the primary and secondary facility containment systems, preventing the release of pathogenic material. During tornado events, extreme internal and external air pressure differentials will test the design parameters of structural and enclosure systems. This presentation will identify, compare, and define a risk-based approach to the most vulnerable of these systems.
The University of Louisville's health sciences campus has thousands of rats and mice — and officials are not only OK with it, they're planning to soon get the rodents new homes through an allotment from the Kentucky General Assembly.
In a feat of reverse tissue engineering, researchers have begun to unravel the complex genetic coding that allows embryonic cells to proliferate and transform into all of the specialized cells that perform a myriad of different biological tasks.
A team researchers show in a study of rhesus monkeys that hair can reveal the womb environment in which an infant formed.
Over 20 years after the fatal fialuridine trial, a study demonstrates that mice with humanized livers recapitulate the drug's toxicity.
Nematode worms, fruit flies, mice and other lab animals live longer, healthier lives when they eat less than they otherwise would if more food were available. Researchers have declared the most popular theory doesn’t make evolutionary sense, and they’ve proposed a new explanation in its place.
Scientists report that they’ve developed a simple, “3D” laboratory method to test asthma and allergy medications that mimics what happens in the body, which could help reduce the need for animal testing.
Tissue engineering has been used to construct natural esophagi, which in combination with bone marrow stem cells have been safely and effectively transplanted in rats.
Limiting a certain protein in the brain reverses Alzheimer’s symptoms in mice. Researchers found that the overproduction of the protein known as p25 may be the culprit behind the sticky protein-fragment clusters that build up in the brains of Alzheimer's patients.
