Cell-Surface RNAs Are Crucial For Your Health

Neutrophils are the “foot soldiers” of the immune system: abundant and active, they are the first line of defense when we are exposed to foreign microbial invaders. To confront these invaders, they must first exit the circulatory system and enter infected tissues. Failure in this process, as exemplified by diseases like leukocyte adhesion deficiency-1 (LAD-1), [...]

The First Heartbeat During Embryonic Development

During embryonic development, what are the molecular events that initiate the first heartbeat?  If we could understand how the first heartbeat occurs, maybe we could repurpose this knowledge and translate it into a therapy that delays the final one… Researchers from Harvard captured and molecularly characterized this event in real time using various techniques, including [...]

A New Clue Leads to a Better Understanding of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) affects millions of people, yet its molecular mechanism remains largely unknown.  Consequently, there are no approved drugs to alleviate its symptoms, leaving physicians uncertain of how to treat patients with this syndrome.  Additionally, there are no definitive diagnostic tests, which often results in many individuals going undiagnosed or being dismissively misdiagnosed [...]

Fluorescent Microscopy Breakthrough Enables Researchers to Peer Deep Within Cells

The 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Roger Tsien, Osamu Shimomura and Martin Chalfie for development and implementation of fluorescent imaging technology.  A notable power of fluorescent imaging is its ability to detect extremely small amounts of fluorescent light, allowing for the detailed visualization of the subcellular organization of cells. However, the resolution [...]

Remarkable Progress on Repairing Spinal Injury

Here is some ground-breaking research on spinal injury from researchers in Lausanne, Switzerland. You can choose to spend your life working on small problems, or big ones.  These researchers have clearly chosen to work on the latter. Repairing Spinal Injury

Brain development continues until age 30

Most teenagers feel confident in their ability to navigate the world and believe they could survive on their own if necessary. However, adults over 40 would likely agree that their 20s were a time of significant personal growth as experiences continued to shape who they became. In other words, our 20s are still considered formative [...]

How were the first building blocks of life formed from the primordial soup?

How were the first building blocks of life formed from the primordial soup? While answers to such questions may not directly lead to the development of new drugs, sometimes we have an intrinsic need to seek knowledge for its own sake. Sometimes, it’s just pure curiosity: what exactly has Mother Nature been up to for [...]
