Bleeding disorders could one day be diagnosed by putting platelets through strength tests, researchers have proposed.
Scientists can improve protein-based drugs by reaching into the evolutionary past, a paper published in Nature Biotechnology proposes.
Chimpanzees choose cooperation over competition: Study challenges distinctiveness of human cooperation
When given a choice between cooperating or competing, chimpanzees choose to cooperate five times more frequently Yerkes National Primate Research Center researchers have found. This, the researchers say, challenges the perceptions ...
Despite the hubbub about pluripotent stem cells' potential applications, when it comes time to introduce products into patients, the stem cells are actually impurities that need to be removed.
Given the choice, many dogs prefer praise from their owners over food, suggests a new study published in the journal Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. The study is one of the first to combine brain-imaging data ...
Chemists have identified a cascade of reactions for how mysterious molecules known as Criegee intermediates generate hydroxyl radicals – an oxidant that helps remove pollutants from the lower atmosphere.
Chemists have taken another major step in the quest to use carbon-hydrogen bonds to create new molecules, a strategy that aims to revolutionize the field of organic synthesis.
A diagnostic test used by hospitals says a recently isolated strain of bacteria is susceptible to the last resort antibiotic colistin. But the strain actually ignores treatment with colistin, causing lethal infections in ...
Someday, if women toast the discovery of male oral contraceptives, they may want to lift a glass to Emory biology professor Steven L'Hernault and his worms.
Scientists have devised a triple-stage "cluster bomb" system for delivering the chemotherapy drug cisplatin, via tiny nanoparticles designed to break up when they reach a tumor.
