A new pilot project by Springer Nature and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) enables researchers to make their research datasets accessible alongside their published articles. From February 2019, all authors whose manuscripts are accepted for publication by npj Breast Cancer will be reviewed by a Research Data Editor who is responsible for cataloging, describing […]Continue Reading ...
An Australian initiative is successfully helping emergency doctors and nurses develop better treatments, diagnostics and services for improving patient care. After seeing first-hand the problems time-poor emergency clinicians had in taking part in research projects the Emergency Medicine Foundation – Australia (EMF) launched a Research Support Network (RSN) in late 2015. EMF piloted the program […]Continue Reading ...
Some of the damaging cell effects linked to aging could be prevented by manipulating tiny parts of cells, a study shows. Scientists have shed light on how the harm caused by senescence – a vital cell process that plays a key role in diseases of aging – could be controlled or even stopped. Researchers say […]Continue Reading ...

Ten African scientists have been selected for training at the National Institutes of Health as part of a new fellowship program to build research capacity in African countries and develop ongoing scientific partnerships. NIH, the African Academy of Sciences, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are collaborating to establish the African Postdoctoral Training Initiative. […]Continue Reading ...
The U.S. will lead three new global research projects, tackling some of the biggest challenges in cancer research, it was announced today by Cancer Research UK. The teams will: investigate how billions of microorganisms living in our bodies, called the microbiome, could be manipulated to treat colorectal cancer; find new ways to tackle cancers caused […]Continue Reading ...
M. leprae, one of the causative agents of leprosy. Credit: Public Domain Dangerous infectious diseases such as AIDS/HIV, Zika, Ebola and influenza frequently make headlines, and it seems as if there is no end of media attention and research interest focused on them. Conversely, diseases like leishmaniasis, Chagas and rabies seem to receive relatively little […]Continue Reading ...
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and romance, but the holiday has also become an opportunity to promote heart health, a tradition that continues as Clemson University bioengineers announce the launch of two separate research projects. Will Richardson and Naren Vyavahare said Thursday that they have each received grants from the National Institutes […]Continue Reading ...
Exposure to glyphosate–the world’s most widely used, broad-spectrum herbicide and the primary ingredient in the weedkiller Roundup–increases the risk of some cancers by more than 40 percent, according to new research from the University of Washington. Various reviews and international assessments have come to different conclusions about whether glyphosate leads to cancer in humans. The […]Continue Reading ...
New research conducted at OHSU in Portland, Oregon, identifies a gene that could provide a new target for developing medication to prevent and treat alcoholism. Scientists at the Oregon National Primate Research Center at OHSU discovered a gene that had lower expression in the brains of nonhuman primates that voluntarily consumed heavy amounts of alcohol […]Continue Reading ...
A long-term initiative championed by the UK Research and Innovation Council (UKRI) could significantly improve the health and life prospects of a generation of Africa’s youth. The Oxford University-led project is one of 12 individual studies taking place as part of the new UKRI Global Research Hubs. The work is financially supported through the Global […]Continue Reading ...
An international research team led by researchers from Vetmeduni Vienna have made an important discovery that could lead to a better understanding of lymphocytic leukemia. They identified the STAT5B protein as crucial for the development of the disease. The findings represent a possible therapeutic approach involving new, precision medicine strategies. The BCR/ABL gene, which does […]Continue Reading ...
Jan 23 2019 Cancer Research UK announced today that it is funding three major new international research initiatives on the microbiome, chronic inflammation and why some cancers are specific to certain tissues and not others. Multidisciplinary teams of scientists from across North America, the UK and Europe, and Israel will come together to explore these […]Continue Reading ...
Collaboration of the nation’s largest network dedicated to improving patient safety in children’s hospitals identifies the most important patient safety research topics In the first study to comprehensively evaluate research priorities for patient safety in pediatrics, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital researchers and collaborators from other children’s hospitals outlined 24 research priorities for improving pediatric […]Continue Reading ...
