Cayo Santiago: No Monkeying Around

In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, researchers are striving to save the unique monkey population near Puerto Rico.

Demystifying the Genes Behind Breast Cancer

It’s taken over two decades to fit together pieces of information about the BRCA genes behind breast and ovarian cancer. Researchers in the Sung Lab at Yale University, led by Patrick Sung and Weixing Zhao, have tackled the problem by developing a way to study proteins, which led to discovering the function of BRCA1 and its interaction with other genes in the role of tumor expression.

A False Fixation on Nitrogen: How nitrogen-fixing trees may slow forest regrowth

Understanding forest regrowth is crucial to predicting and mitigating environmental damage, and with over half

Studying the Few to Serve the Many: Studying the rare Gaucher disease to discover molecular mechanisms behind the common Parkinson’s Disease

Yale scientists found two potential enzymes to target via cell therapy to treat the common variety of Parkinson’s disease associated with Gaucher disease. These two enzymes regulate the pathology of the specific lipids that accumulate due to Gaucher disease.

Cryo-Electron Microscopy Made Easier on the Pocketbook

Yale researchers have unveiled a new cryo-electron microscope, able to probe within the structure of proteins.

Fighting Fungi by Capturing Sugars

Scientists from the Yale Chemistry Department have developed a new small molecule that bolsters the body’s own immune system against fungal infections.

Neurons that Drive and Quench Thirst: Identifying the neural mechanisms that regulate water consumption

Until now, thirst was known as a primordial drive that was poorly-understood on the neural level. Researchers at Stanford have identified a mechanism through which a small group of neurons motivate thirst-related behavior.
