Engineers have created a brand new, three dimensional hydrogel that mimics the conditions of the human brain better than any previous gel. The clinical applications of the new hydrogel are varied, but at the moment it’s giving researchers a whole new way to study glioblastoma multiforme – an aggressive and notoriously deadly form of brain cancer. Traditionally, researchers...

Researchers at Arizona State University have discovered a way to reverse brain aging in older honeybees, by giving them the kinds of responsibilities normally handled by much younger bees. The study and subsequent clinical applications may give us a new look at how social intervention and responsibility can bolster drug therapies in the fight against...

In May of 2013, scientists in California and Oregon made major breakthroughs when they were able to create human embryonic stem cells by cloning existing cells. It’s a major advancement in the war against fatal, devastating and life-altering diseases and medical events, including Alzheimer’s, stroke, lupus, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, and more. There’s only one...

Barcelona’s Supercomputing Center made a big splash in the science news world this month with a human heart built by one of their supercomputers. Led by doctors and researchers, the Alya Red project is set to revolutionize the way we approach future drug testing. The supercomputer-created heart recreates every major function of a biological heart, including...
