A team of scientists from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University have made a fundamental biological discovery that explains the structure of the nuclear envelope
Medical Sciences advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, but they also help us prevent disease in the first place. Too numerous to name, the medical sciences continuously make miraculous breakthroughs that extend lifetimes and expand our ability to experience life.
A Big-Data analysis of patient records at Vanderbilt University has found a link specifically between Celebrex and heart valve calcification
National Science Foundation-funded researchers at Northwestern University have developed a 3D imaging tool that gives researchers a rare glimpse at the more than 40 billion, tiny, hair-like vessels called capillaries
Do the math for bedbugs, frog-skin lifesavers, cuddles for ICU babies and recipe against disaster
In this week's episode, we explore 3D technology to look inside capillaries; learn about a new species of dinosaur with a heart-shaped tail; and, finally, we examine a new kind of thinking cap for online learning
A new design for insulin that's easy to swallow, deep-sea surprise game changer for climate, catching reefs on the flip side and the physics of how bees chill.
Vikram Iyer, doctoral student in the University of Washington's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, demonstrates 3D printed devices that can track and store information about their use without using batteries or electronics
Researchers develop modular robots that can autonomously adapt to changing environments
According to Colorado State University scientists, the status quo of the U.S. pharmaceutical market may soon be turned on its head
A National Science Foundation-funded University of Washington study shows how intensive instruction changes brain circuitry in struggling readers
The whole tooth and nothing but the tooth, slipping into something solar, wet and dry disease and mucus modifications to save lives
An engineering breakthrough in Type 1 diabetes could help dogs and humans alike!
Researchers have designed and developed a thin, flexible device that wraps around an injured nerve and delivers electrical pulses at selected time points for days before the device harmlessly degrades in the body
Catching brain hijackers, landscaping for the birds, a mussel shell tell and faster protein sequencing
This week's episode examines an engineering breakthrough in Type 1 diabetes that could help dogs and humans alike; targeted reading programs that rewire the brains reading circuitry; and finally, explores hidden ice history discovered beneath the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
A new study conducted at reveals new insights into choice overload, including the parts of the brain responsible for it and how many options the brain actually prefers when it is making a choice
Northwestern University and Washington University School of Medicine researchers have developed a kind of bioelectronic medicine: an implantable, biodegradable wireless device that speeds nerve regeneration and improves healing of damaged nerves
Harvard team is advancing soft, wearable robots with embedded sensors for hand and arm rehabilitation
Biologists at Johns Hopkins University grew human retinas from scratch to determine how cells that allow people to see in color are made
A team of engineers at Washington University in St. Louis has developed a new technique that uses temporary fluorescence to cause amyloids to flash, or "blink," thus allowing researchers to better spot these problematic proteins
