Like many newish medical students, second-year student Jill Anderson, a Bay Area native, is still figuring out exactly what she’d like to do. Her current interests include obstetrics/gynecology and pediatrics, with some clinical research and teaching mixed in. I caught up with her recently to learn more. How did you first become interested in science? […]Continue Reading ...
Traditionally many health-related research projects focused only on males, assuming that females’ bodies would respond the same way to a given intervention or drug. But more and more often scientists are uncovering important distinctions between men’s and women’s health, pointing to the need for dedicated attention to understand the intricacies of the differences. The Building […]Continue Reading ...
Myocardial infarction (MI) is one of the most common causes of death in the Western world. Typically, MI is caused by the blockage of a coronary artery by an atherosclerotic plaque: as the oxygen supply of the heart drops, cell death occurs. If the patient is hospitalized and the oxygen supply of the heart restored […]Continue Reading ...
In a Policy Forum article appearing in the Oct. 12 issue of Science, leading bioethics and legal scholars sound the alarm about a recent report from National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine.

Designed to support promising hematology research, ASH Bridge Grants will ensure that innovative research continues at institutions across the country. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the world’s top provider of medical research grants. […]Continue Reading ...
Traditionally, medical studies were based on data from men only. And the research was conducted by men only. We’d like to tell ourselves that was in the past — a era long, long ago. But, many research teams remain mostly male and many institutions, it seems, need some guidance about how to support gender diversity, as […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have discovered a potential treatment that could be effective against severe malaria and even drug-resistant malaria.
