A team of researchers spanning multiple universities, led by Yale Professor Andre Levchenko, has experimentally quantified some of the methods by which cells communicate.
Sunscreen That Blocks More Than Sun: How a Small-But-Mighty Nanoparticle is Revolutionizing Sun Protection
Think you’re beach ready? Read this first! Yale researchers have developed a new sunblock formula which, unlike typical sunblock, does not sink into the skin and alter DNA.
A recent study led by Yale researchers indicates that the hormone FGF21 may help protect against the collapse of the immune system with age by preventing the degradation of the thymus. This discovery may offer a promising treatment for improving immunity in the elderly, as well as for helping cancer patients following bone marrow transplants.
The sense of smell has often provided us valuable insights into disease progression and treatments. Now, a recent study has shown that changes in the smell of one’s urine can predict the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
In a new study at the Yale School of Public Health, a correlation between negative views on aging and the onset of Alzheimer’s provides a potential target for future Alzheimer’s prevention.
Parts that can be found in cell phones can be used to make biodegradable devices that can monitor brain conditions. Led by teams from the University of Illinois and Washington University in St. Louis, researchers have produced such devices that may be able treat the brain, too.
Antibiotics are one of the most important tools in the arsenal of modern medicine. But an engaging new documentary explains how their overuse is driving bacterial resistance, and how it may lead us to a world without them.
AACR directors Patricia LoRusso of the Yale School of Medicine, George D. Demetri of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Victor Velculescu of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center are working to implement a “moonshot” for cancer initiative to produce innovative breakthroughs.
An exhibit at the Yale Medical Library explores the medical history of deafness, but also the rich culture and community in which Deaf people share.
In a recent Yale study, researchers have shown that it may be possible to teach sufferers of OCD to control their anxiety by giving them immediate feedback on their brain’s activity. This method may also prove useful in better understanding the underlying neural substrates that may define the disease.
