Though we have always known that plants are vital to maintaining good health and preventing diseases, only recently have scientists begun to uncover the mystery and promise lying within their leafy tendrils. Yale professor Nicole Clay and her team of
A recent study published in Nature Biotechnology by a Yale University team revealed an efficient way for building new classes of biomaterials containing nonstandard amino acids.
Recently, researchers at the University of British Columbia designed a new method for stopping hemorrhaging. The system relies on microparticles that propel themselves upstream through blood, delivering coagulants to hard-to-reach wounds.
A double espresso shot delays the human circadian clock by an average of 40 minutes. How does
the most widely used psychoactive drug — caffeine — affect our internal timekeeping?
There’s a new reason to say ‘cheers’ to the microbe. For the first time, scientists have experimentally determined that the yeast S. cerevisiae has a significant influence on regional variations in wine flavor and smell.
Scientists are working towards better methods of drug delivery for diseases that attack the brain.
Mosquitoes Resistant to Malaria: Scientists investigate the innate immune response in Anopheles gambiae
Anopheles gambiae is professor Richard Baxter’s insect of interest, and it is easy to see why: The mosquito species found in sub-Saharan Africa excels at transmitting malaria, one of the deadliest infectious diseases. “[Malaria] is a scourge of the developing
Yale researchers led by professor David Spiegel have developed ARMs, a new class of chemicals that can be used to treat prostate cancer and other diseases.
Contrary to common scientific belief, proteins need not be large to have powerful biological functions.
