Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

... of the device over 72 hours, although researchers say that if the device is eventually approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it likely would be used as long as the patient is in failure. Kidneys require a lot of oxygen and energy to perform their endless task, which makes them easy targets in t...

UCSB scientists probe sea floor venting to gain understanding of early life on Earth

The UCSB scientists are making new contributions to this field of inquiry in their studies of seafloor hydrothermal fluid discharge into the Earth's oceans, which has been occurring ever sin...

W.M. Keck Foundation funds study of friendly microbes

You could say that the Human Genome Project missed 99 percent of the genes in the adult body. That's because it didn't sequence genes belonging to the vast communities of bacteria that normally live on and in us. Now a $1.45 million grant from the W.M. Keck Found...
