Experts propose ‘cyber war’ on cancer: Universities aim to break cancer’s codes for social networking

Experts propose ‘cyber war’ on cancer: Universities aim to break cancer’s codes for social networking

ScienceDaily (Sep. 4, 2012) — In the face of mounting evidence that cancer cells communicate, cooperate and even engage in collective decision-making, biophysicists and cancer researchers at Rice University, Tel Aviv University and Johns Hopkins University are suggesting a new strategy for outsmarting cancer through its own social intelligence Continue reading

Can’t smell anything? Discovery may give you hope

ScienceDaily (Sep. 2, 2012) — Scientists have restored the sense of smell in mice through gene therapy for the first time — a hopeful sign for people who can’t smell anything from birth or lose it due to disease. Continue reading

Metabolism in the brain fluctuates with circadian rhythm

Metabolism in the brain fluctuates with circadian rhythm

ScienceDaily (Aug. 28, 2012) — The rhythm of life is driven by the cycles of day and night, and most organisms carry in their cells a common, (roughly) 24-hour beat. In animals, this rhythm emerges from a tiny brain structure called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) in the hypothalamus Continue reading

Genetic material in blood cells may affect malaria parasites

Genetic material in blood cells may affect malaria parasites

ScienceDaily (Aug. 15, 2012) — Researchers at Duke University Medical Center may finally have discovered why people with sickle cell disease get milder cases of malaria than individuals who have normal red blood cells. In a finding that has eluded scientists for years, Duke researchers discovered that genetic material in red blood cells may help alter parasite activity via a novel mechanism that alters parasite gene regulation.
