UCLA Scientists Make Cells That Enable the Sense of Touch


Researchers at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA have, for the first time, coaxed human stem cells to become sensory interneurons — the cells that give us our sense of touch. The new protocol could be a step toward stem cell–based therapies to restore sensation in paralyzed people who have lost feeling in parts of their body.

Scouting the Eagles: Proof That Protecting Nests Aids Reproduction


Reproduction among bald eagles in a remote national park in Minnesota was aided when their nests were protected from human disturbance, according to a study published today (Jan. 9, 2018) in the Journal of Applied Ecology.

What Species Is Most Fit for Life? All Have an Equal Chance, Scientists Say


There are more than 8 million species of living things on Earth, but none of them — from 100-foot blue whales to microscopic bacteria — has an advantage over the others in the universal struggle for existence. In a paper published Jan. 8 in the prestigious journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, scientists describe the dynamic that began with the origin of life on Earth 4 billion years ago.

People Who Sleep Less Than 8 Hours a Night More Likely to Suffer From Depression, Anxiety

Sleeping less than the recommended eight hours a night is associated with intrusive, repetitive thoughts like those seen in anxiety or depression, according to new research from Binghamton University, State University of New York.

Gene Therapy Using CAR T-Cells Could Provide Long-Term Protection Against HIV


Through gene therapy, researchers engineered blood-forming stem cells (hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, or HSPCs) to carry chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) genes to make cells that can detect and destroy HIV-infected cells. These engineered cells persisted for more than two years

Want to Beat Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs? Rethink That Strep Throat Remedy


Antibiotics could become nearly useless by mid-century against intense infections due to bacteria evolving antibiotic resistance. And alternatives haven't been able to replace them. It's time for a rethink: Try reducing antibiotic use for small infections and find alternate treatments for them. Save antibiotics for the big infections.

Scientists Describe How Solar System Could Have Formed in Bubble Around Giant Star


Scientists with the University of Chicago have laid out a comprehensive theory for how our solar system could have formed in the wind-blown bubbles around a giant, long-dead star. Published Dec. 22 in the Astrophysical Journal, the study addresses a nagging cosmic mystery about the abundance of two elements in our solar system compared to the rest of the galaxy.

‘Cosmic Lantern’ Could Help Us Further Understand the Fate of the Universe


New research has provided a deeper insight into emission line galaxies, used in several ongoing and upcoming surveys, to help us further understand the composition and fate of the Universe.

Easter Island Had a Cooperative Community, Analysis of Giant Hats Reveals


Analysis of giant stone hats found on Rapa Nui, Chile (Easter Island) provides evidence contrary to the widely held belief that the ancient civilization had a warrior culture. According to a new study conducted by a team of researchers, including a professor at Binghamton University, State University of New York, these stone hats suggest that the people of Rapa Nui were part of a supportive and inclusive community.

Oldest Fossils Ever Found Show Life on Earth Began Before 3.5 Billion Years Ago


Researchers at UCLA and the University of Wisconsin–Madison have confirmed that microscopic fossils discovered in a nearly 3.5 billion-year-old piece of rock in Western Australia are the oldest fossils ever found and indeed the earliest direct evidence of life on Earth.
