Single Surface Protein Boosts Multiple Oncogenic Pathways in Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Study Reveals

The Rockefeller University Press

Researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York have discovered that a signaling protein elevated in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) plays a much wider role in the disease than previously thought. The study, which will be published May 17 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, raises hopes that current efforts to target this signaling protein could be a successful strategy to treat AML and other blood cancers.

Scientists Publish First Estimate of Carbon Emissions From 2014 Mega-Fires in Canada's Boreal Forests

Northern Arizona University

As “mega-fires” in the boreal forest become more frequent and more intense, scientists believe the burning of these carbon-rich areas will drastically increase the amount of carbon being released into the atmosphere. But because these mega-fire areas are so large—more than 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres)—and are home to a complex diversity of vegetation types, accurately predicting these emissions has been challenging. A study recently completed by a team of NAU scientists was designed to help solve this problem.
