A recent study conducted by the TEDDY international research team has identified six novel gene regions in children who are at risk of type 1 diabetes. It is hoped that this will aid in the identification of more causative genes and targets for treatment and prevention.
Engineers at the University of Connecticut have developed a biodegradable pressure sensor for use in bone grafts, surgical sutures, and medical implants. It is hoped that the device could replace existing implantable pressure sensors that have to be removed surgically.
An international team of scientists has identified the possible cause of a colonial-era epidemic in Mexico through the discovery of Salmonella enterica Paratyphi C in skeletons of the victims.
A new study suggests that parmodulins (synthetic activated protein C (APC)-mimicking molecules) may provide anti-inflammatory and anti-thrombotic protection to endothelial cells, without interfering with clotting.
A new study has revealed a significant link between cardiovascular disease and stroke risk in women who began menstruating before the age of 12.
Researchers from the Medical Research Council (MRC) have discovered how some children inherit a potentially life-threatening mitochondrial disease, despite being born to a healthy mother.

Optogenetics is the science of using light to control the behavior of cells. It is one of the most rapidly evolving fields of applied research. Optogenetic techniques enable the control of electrically excitable cells such as muscle or nerve cells.
Chagas disease is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. It is most often transmitted by nocturnal, blood-sucking insects called kissing bugs. When the kissing bug feeds, it defecates, and the sleeping victim unconsciously scratches the bite scene and introduces the infected feces into their blood stream.
Mental health, as with any other aspects of health, can be affected by a range of socioeconomic factors that need to be addressed through comprehensive strategies involving access to preventions, treatments and facilitating recovery as well as raising awareness.

It is important to select the proper camera for fluorescence microscopy which has high sensitivity and low noise, to avoid photo bleaching your sample. A monochrome camera is also preferred for fluorescence imaging because it does not have a color filter pattern superimposed over the image sensor. Since the microscope’s filter wheel selects which wavelength makes its way to the sensor, a monochrome camera allows equal signal detection on all pixels and increases the overall sensitivity of the camera.
