Newswise: Johns Hopkins Launches Hub for Immunology and Engineering Research

Johns Hopkins Launches Hub for Immunology and Engineering Research

Johns Hopkins Medicine

If the saying that two heads are better than one is true, then joining two fields of science may be better than one to spur more advances in medicine. With a $6.7 million, five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers will bring together immunologists, oncologists and biomedical engineers in an effort to build new tools to treat cancer and autoimmune diseases.

How to Simulate Softness

University of California San Diego

What factors affect how human touch perceives softness, like the feel of pressing your fingertip against a marshmallow, a piece of clay or a rubber ball? By exploring this question in detail, UC San Diego researchers discovered clever tricks to design materials that replicate different levels of perceived softness.

A Billion People Will Be Newly Exposed to Diseases Like Dengue Fever as World Temperatures Rise

Georgetown University Medical Center

As many as a billion people could be newly exposed to disease-carrying mosquitoes by the end of the century because of global warming, says a new study that examines temperature changes on a monthly basis across the world.

Glowing Tumors Show Scientists Where Cancer Drugs Are Working

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Experimenting with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers report they have successfully used positron emission tomography (PET) scans to calculate in real time how much of an immunotherapy drug reaches a tumor and what parts of a cancer remain unaffected.

Newswise: Measuring Differences in Brain Chemicals in People with Mild Memory Problems

Measuring Differences in Brain Chemicals in People with Mild Memory Problems

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Using strong and targeted but noninvasive magnets at specific sites in the brains of people with and without mild learning and memory problems, Johns Hopkins researchers report they were able to detect differences in the concentrations of brain chemicals that transmit messages between neurons. The strength of these magnetic fields allows the researchers to measure tiny amounts and compare multiple brain metabolite levels at the same time. These studies may ultimately help to reveal what initiates memory decline and may, perhaps, even predict dementia risk. The researchers believe that measuring such data over time will allow them to more accurately detect and describe changes in metabolism in the brain as a person progresses from healthy to mild cognitive impairment and to dementia.

Shedding Light—Literally—on Resistance to Radiation Therapy

Johns Hopkins University

A new Johns Hopkins study offers promise towards someday being able to non-invasively examine changes in cancerous tumors to determine whether they’ll respond to radiation treatment, before treatment even begins.

Specialized Lung Cells Appear Very Early in Development

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Specialized lung cells appear in the developing fetus much earlier than scientists previously thought. Investigating the fetal signaling pathways active in the biological events by which alveoli form may offer future opportunities to treat lung damage caused by prematurity and other lung injuries.
