When a scientist suspects a particular gene or pathway maybe implicated in Alzheimers disease, they will use these data to see if there is genetic evidence supporting th...

Researchers Find New Target to Treat Type 2 Diabetes

...m food as well as from liver resulting in more fat deposition in tissues that increase obesity. As part of the study, researchers conducted experiments on mice to find a direct link between insulin and fat metabolism control. Researchers found that the protein Akt2/PKB adds a phosphate group to its molecula...

Researchers Develop Material That Self Heals Like Human Skin

...h, the scientists built a scaffold using a robotic deposition process called direct-write assembly. The process employed a concentrated polymeric ink, dispensed as a continuous filament, to fabricate a three-dimensional structure, layer by layer. Once the scaffold was produced, it was surrounded with an epoxy...
