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.
Researchers study the guts of insects to uncover how a symbiotic microbe develops a part of the tsetse fly’s immune system. This finding raises the importance of understanding the role of bacterial species in the human microbiome.
A study conducted at Yale University found that the TGF-β1 signaling pathway helps the brain recovery following a stroke.
Up until recently, very little has been understood about fat cell growth and maintenance. A new Yale study shines some light on the molecular mechanisms behind these processes, paving the way for future research.
Treating Autism Case by Case: Innovative personalized treatment methods for Autism Spectrum Disorders
Following developments elsewhere in the field of treatment, like the increasingly specific cancer medications and therapies that target specific cells unique to each type of cancer, researchers at the Child Study Center are finding ways to personalize autism medicine. In the future, treatment could be tailored to fit the needs of each individual patient.
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.
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.
The human female orgasm, unlike the male orgasm, is uncommon during heterosexual intercourse and has no direct connection to reproduction. How is it that it came to exist?
Pediatric patients received better quality of care in pediatric emergency departments compared with general emergency departments. A Yale team developed simulation to study why patient outcomes in quality vary and how to improve quality of emergency care for pediatric patients.
