Now, self-healing materials can mimic human skin, healing again and again

...more healing agent into the network, ‘scar tissue’ builds up in the coating and prevents the healing agent from reaching the catalyst.” In the current system, the healing process stops after seven healing cycles. This limitation might be overcome by implementing a new microvascular design based on dual ne...

Australian wins prestigious prize in biodiversity informatics

...-tier scientific journals, but at the same time he builds software applications that are intuitive and maximize the user experience for both scientists and non-scientists. Flemons' Prize will go toward engaging a broader community in the establishment of standards for data and metadata that arise from bio...

Human stem cell treatment restores motor function in paralyzed rats

...onal mobility of the patient’s legs. This study builds on Marsala’s previous work in rat models using human neuronal stem cells, published in October 2004 in the European Journal of Neurosciences. In that study, significantly improved motor function, measured by a suppression of spastic movements and i...

Puzzling plankton yield secrets to role in evolution/global photosynthesis

...an adaptive process in Ostreococcus. "This work builds on the community’s emerging understanding about how carbon fixation is carried out by picoplankton," said Brian Palenik, lead author and researcher at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego. "From an applied p...

Switching genes to overdrive improves muscular dystrophy symptoms in mice

...bers to contract. Part of the reason that exercise builds stronger muscles is that it increases PGC-1alpha activity. Conversely, disease or lack of exercise reduces PGC-1alpha activity, causing a loss of NMJ function and weakening, or atrophying, of muscles. Spiegelman’s team had previously bred a strain...

Bones in motion: Brown scientists to create new 3-D X-ray system

... complete system available by 2010. The project builds on orthopedic imaging work at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit and on original research in skeletal imaging at Brown, including a trailblazing technique developed by Gatesy that uses animation software to combine CT scanner data with X-ray images. Imag...

Mine runoff continues to provide clues to microbial diversification

...ystem in the mid-1990s. This latest publication builds upon research that was published in May 2005 by Science. In that paper, Banfield, Hettich and colleagues at ORNL describe the bacterial community that thrives in what amounts to sulfuric acid. Their work set the stage for the latest development becau...

Researchers learn what sparks plant growth

...al Institute researchers. The new discovery, which builds on more than a decade of painstaking surveillance of cellular communication between different types of plant tissues, shows clearly for the first time how plants "decide" to grow. The research, conducted by Sigal Savaldi-Goldstein and Howard Hughes ...

Researchers discover surprising drug that blocks malaria

In addition, blood pressure medication like propranolol is cheap and safe for use even in pregnant women, a group particularly vulnerable to malaria. "We're working on developing a unique drug that would combine anti-malarial drug...

NIH announces phase III clinical trial of creatine for Parkinson's disease

NET-PD builds on a developmental research process—from laboratory research to pilot studies in a select group of patients, to the definitive phase III trial of effectiveness in people with Parkinson’s disease. "This study is an example of the Institute's commit...

Meat and two neutrons -- the key to a longer life

"Our work builds upon the sequences of the human and mouse genomes, the power of computer analysis and microarray work and exemplifies why whole-organism research can bring understanding that cannot be developed in any other way." The study emphasizes the value of...

Overfishing large sharks impacts entire marine ecosystem, shrinks shellfish supply

...Hill and co-leader of the study. The research builds upon an earlier study by Myers and Baum, published in Science in 2003, which used data from commercial fisheries to show rapid declines in the great sharks of the northwest Atlantic since the mid-1980s. Now, by examining a dozen different research su...

New brain-chemistry differences found in depressed women

The project also builds on a relatively new body of work on the role of anticipation in emotion and clinical disorders, says senior author Jack Nitschke, a UW-Madison assistant professor of psychiatry and psychology. "Our study illustrates how the power of expectancy can...

Carnegie Mellon scientists use 'green' approach to transform plastics manufacturing

...and CuII. But as an ATRP reaction progresses, CuII builds up. Typically, researchers add more CuI to compensate for this effect and maintain the balance between the two copper species. But this approach ultimately generates materials with high overall levels of copper -- levels that are too costly to remove...

From a lowly yeast, researchers divine a clue to human disease

...ymerase II "reads through" the end of the gene and builds longer and longer RNA messages. "In some cases it doesn't have a big effect," Brow says. "Other times, it's a big problem," like when another important gene is right next-door on the same piece of DNA. Like run-on sentences, long RNAs from multip...

Study IDs protein that inhibits HIV from growing in cell cultures

Dr Baum's research builds on his earlier work when, in collaboration with others, he completed a full study of the function of every one of the fruit fly's genes in cells. This is allowing him now to compare those to similar genes in human cell lines to help him understand wh...
