ScienceDaily (May 31, 2012) — The molecular structure of a protein involved in Alzheimer's disease -- and the surprising discovery that it binds cholesterol -- could lead to new therapeutics for the disease, Vanderbilt University investigators report in the June 1 issue of the journal Science.
Following the motion picture launch of “The Iron Lady” – based on the true story of Margaret Thatcher – Swan Hellenic and Voyages of Discovery are providing their passengers with the chance to join a political debate at sea.
Both small ship lines, known for their enrichment cruises and signature Guest Speaker series, will showcase experts on board offering real insight into the world of politics.
ScienceDaily (Apr. 28, 2011) For the first time, scientists have been able to paint a detailed chemical picture of how a particular strain of bacteria has evolved to become resistant to antibiotics. The research is a key step toward designing compounds to prevent infections by recently evolved, drug-resistant "superbugs" that often are found in hospitals, as well as in the general population.
ScienceDaily (Apr. 3, 2011) A new way of understanding the structure of proteins, polymers, minerals, and engineered materials will be published in the May 2011 issue of the journal Nature Materials.
The discovery by two Penn State University researchers is a new type of symmetry in the structure of materials, which the researchers say greatly expands the possibilities for discovering or designing materials with desired properties.
ScienceDaily (June 24, 2010) Discoveries about tropical coral reefs are expected to be invaluable in efforts to restore the corals, which are succumbing to bleaching and other diseases at an unprecedented rate as ocean temperatures rise worldwide.
The research gives new insights into how the scientists can help to preserve or restore the coral reefs that protect coastlines, foster tourism, and nurture many species of fish.
The research, which will be published in the journal PLoS One, was accomplished by an international team whose leaders include Iliana Baums, an assistant professor of biology at Penn State University.
ScienceDaily (Mar. 9, 2010) The King Cobra continues to weave its charm with researchers identifying a protein in its venom with the potential for new drug discovery and to advance understanding of disease mechanisms.
ScienceDaily (Jan. 29, 2010) A George Washington University expedition to the Gobi Desert of China has enabled researchers to solve the puzzle of how one group of dinosaurs came to look like birds independent of birds. The discovery extends the fossil record of the family Alvarezsauridae -- a bizarre group of bird-like dinosaurs with a large claw on the hand and very short, powerful arms -- back 63 million years, further distancing the group from birds on the evolutionary tree.
ScienceDaily (Jan. 25, 2010) Biomedical scientists from the University of Central Florida and Louisiana State University have identified a way to block a "cell death signal" that they believe triggers brain damage during strokes.
Strokes, also known as cerebral ischemia, are caused by inadequate blood flow to the brain and are the third-leading cause of death in the United States.
