Illustration of Cell Nucleus

Cell nucleus illustration. University of California Riverside-led study identifies how blood stem cells maintain their fate. Understanding the molecular mechanisms that specify and maintain the identities of the human body’s more than 200 cell types is perhaps one of the most fundamental problems in molecular and cellular biology, with major implications for human disease management. … Read more

Atherosclerotic Plaques “Talk” With the Brain – Innovative Therapies To Fight Atherosclerosis

Atherosclerotic Plaques “Talk” With the Brain – Innovative Therapies To Fight Atherosclerosis

New research from a European collaboration paves the way for innovative strategies to fight atherosclerosis. A new research study shows the existence of a connection between atherosclerotic plaques and the central nervous system. This previously unknown “circuit” involves three systemically acting tissues, the immune system, the nervous system, and the cardiovascular system. This crosstalk is … Read more

Unchecked Global Emissions on Course To Trigger Mass Extinction of Marine Life

Unchecked Global Emissions on Course To Trigger Mass Extinction of Marine Life

Princeton University researchers reported in a new study that unless greenhouse gas emissions are curbed, marine biodiversity may be on track to plummet to levels not seen since the extinction of the dinosaurs. The scientists modeled future marine biodiversity under projected climate scenarios and found that species such as dolphinfish (shown) would be imperiled as … Read more
