A clinical trial led by Yale professor Kevan Herold may lead to an effective new treatment for type 1 diabetes.
Why is the TB/HIV dual epidemic so pervasive in sub-Saharan Africa? Dr. Richard Bucala’s research at the Yale School of Medicine suggests genetics holds the answer.
In a collaborative study, researchers from several Yale departments have developed small synthetic molecules that limit damage to the heart from ischemia, which could potentially be developed into drugs to be used in a surgical or therapeutic setting.
During fieldwork, Dr. Isaac Bogoch assembled a microscope from an iPhone, an $8 ball lens, and some tape, to detect hookworms in 200 Tanzanian children. The invention gives hope for increased detection of the disease in rural Africa and around the world.
An ingenious, easy-to-use diagnostic device developed by Vanderbilt professor Dr. Rick Haselton could be a game-changer in the fight against malaria.
Led by Professor Katarzyna Chawarska, a team of scientists at the Yale School of Medicine have detected deficits in social attention in infants as young as six months — the earliest detection age for Autism Spectrum Disorders yet.
Fat Storage and the Discovery of Lipid Droplets: How Understanding “Basic” Processes Can Lead to More Effective Medical Treatments
The process of how the body stores fat is often thought to be well-studied and characterized. However, Professor Tobias Walther’s research has led to the discovery that there are two different types of lipid droplets in the body that feature dramatic differences and ultimately suggest different treatment options for associated diseases.
Researchers have uncovered the critical role that gut microbes play in establishing patterns of disease and physiology related to malnutrition.
In the ongoing search for new cancer treatments, Yale Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering Tarek Fahmy tackles an old question with new technology.
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Tara Chaplin finds that whether or not children exhibit emotional responses in line with gender stereotypes depends on context.
