The Snyder Lab at Stanford is working on an algorithm that uses medical data from wearable biosensors like smartwatches to detect when people get sick. Their research could completely change the way we diagnose and treat diseases.
It was once thought fruit flies can process more alcohol than their sister species because of a difference in their genome. Now, a collaboration between evolutionary and molecular biologists is challenging this hypothesis by putting ancient genes in modern fruit flies
How much did the Ice Age’s widespread mammal extinctions actually impact the ecosystem, and what can this tell us about our mass extinctions today? Dr. Matt Davis of the Department of Geology and Geophysics investigates this question.
Yale researchers are using fractals to decode the signals planets leave in their star’s light. The answer to life, the universe, and everything? Might well be hidden in the noise.
Detroit has a high rate of preterm births, and these babies tend to experience neurodevelopmental delays. Based on a new study, those delays may start in the womb.
A new publication examines how population growth and urbanization will reduce croplands, potentially destabilize governments and instigate social conflict. Yale Professor Karen Seto, a coauthor of the international study, studies urbanization and the changing global landscape.
Surgical tumor removal has been the go-to cancer treatment for decades. Yale School of Medicine challenges surgery’s place as the most effective treatment of cancer with unexpected research results.
A new whole-lung bioreactor system involving the maintenance and delivery of oxygen to the lungs was developed by Yale Professor of Biomedical Engineering Laura Niklason. This system looks to optimize the processes of growing lungs in bioreactors and enables the real-time monitoring of oxygen intake and cell proliferation in the lung.
Knots have proven useful since the dawn of mankind. Drawing on this as inspiration, Professor David A. Leigh, along with his team at the University of Manchester’s School of Chemistry, synthesized the most complex chemical knot yet, and believe that it holds many promising applications.
