Innovative smallpox vaccine research study to be conducted at Case Medical Center
...accine geared toward adults ages 18 to 34 who have never
been vaccinated against the disease. The study is the first of its type in Northeast Ohio. The current FDA-approved vaccine, Dryvax®, is not recommended for use on everyone because of the potential for serious side effects in certain individuals. “...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on
...much like a one-size-fits-all clothing store would never

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming
...it is produced and injects it underground. The gas never
enters the atmosphere. The practice could transform heavy carbon spewers, such as coal power plants, into relatively clean machines with regard to global warming. ''The notion is that the sooner we wean ourselves off fossil fuels, the sooner we'll...

seen wildlife like that, in such numbers, not even when flying over the mass migrations of the Serengeti,” said Fay. “This could represent the biggest migration of large mammals on earth.” Fay, Elkan and Marjan also report an estimated 8,000 elepha...
