White House Takes Action Against Antibiotic Drug Resistance

On September 18th, the White House released a strategy plan to curb further spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. According to CDC, 23,000 illnesses and 2 million deaths are cause by antibiotic-resistant bacteria each year (1). The national strategy includes creating surveillance of infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria as well as increasing […]

New Study Reveals Female Dominance Throughout History

Our genes tell a great deal about us and the history of our species, including details about ancient migrations, subpopulation size and structure, and even estimates of the overall human population size in the past (1). According to a new genetics study published by Investigative Genetics on Tuesday, females have […]

Groundbreaking Stem Cells Implanted into Human Retina

On September 12, 2014, a team of eye specialists led by ophthalmologist Yasuo Kurimoto implanted a 1.3 by 3.0 millimeter sheet of retinal pigment epithelium cells into the eye of an elderly female patient at the Institute for Biomedical Research and Innovation in Kobe, Japan (1). This patient suffers from […]

UN makes population growth projections

According to a new statistical projection made by the United Nations (UN) and the University of Washington (UW), Seattle, the world population is likely to reach as many as 13 billion individuals by the end of this century (1). This recent analysis uses modern statistical methods instead of experts’ opinions […]

Glial Cells Shown to Contribute to Memory and Recognition in the Brain

Recently, a team of researchers led by Stephen Heinemann, a neurobiologist at University of California, San Diego, published the results showing that neurons are not the only type of cell in the brain involved in processes relating to memory (1). Glial cells, or simply glia, are cells in the nervous […]

Learning fear through odor

Learning fear through odor

Babies can get new phobias just by smelling the odor of their distressed mothers. A new study by the University of Michigan Medical School and New York University School of Medicine showed mother rats can teach new fears to their young (2). The concept that factors other than DNA can […]

New peptide to treat Alzheimer’s

New peptide to treat Alzheimer’s

A new molecular structure, developed by the University of Washington and other laboratories, could stop the progression of Alzheimer’s and related diseases. Gene Hopping, a research scientist at the University of Washington, and others discovered a peptide that inhibits a type of toxic molecule involved in diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, […]
