A Closer Look at T cells Reveals Big Differences in Mild vs. Severe COVID-19 Cases (Medicine)

New research highlights the enormous variability in how T cells respond to the deadly virus. A big question on people’s minds these days: how long does immunity to SARS-CoV-2 last following infection? Now a research team from La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI), The University of Liverpool and the University of Southampton has uncovered an … Continue reading A Closer Look at T cells Reveals Big Differences in Mild vs. Severe COVID-19 Cases (Medicine)

Astronomers May Have Detected Second White Dwarf Pulsar (Cosmology)

Using Public Data Release of Zwicky Transient Facility observations, Japanese astronomers found that ZTF J185139.81+171430.3 (hereafter ZTF18abnbzvx) shows a very short very short (12.37 min) period and large-amplitude (0.8 mag) coherent variations. The unique white dwarf pulsar ‘AR sco’ is the only known object that shows similar very short period, large-amplitude and coherent variations. Their … Continue reading Astronomers May Have Detected Second White Dwarf Pulsar (Cosmology)

Tu Delft Researchers Designed Hybrid Energy System For Martian Habitats (Planetary Science / Engineering)

Roland Schmehl and student team designed a hybrid wind-solar energy system to power the construction and subsequent use of a subsurface Mars habitat. Their study recently appeared in Arxiv. Several space agencies are aiming to send the humans to Mars with the goal to establish a habitat. One of the main problems to overcome is … Continue reading Tu Delft Researchers Designed Hybrid Energy System For Martian Habitats (Planetary Science / Engineering)

How 3D Space is Represented in the Mammalian Cortex by the Brain’s “GPS” System? (Neuroscience)

A new study on bats reveals an unexpected representation of three-dimensional space in the brain In a new study published in Nature today, Weizmann Institute of Science researchers, in collaboration with colleagues from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, unveiled for the first time how three-dimensional space is represented in the mammalian cortex by the brain’s “GPS” system. The team … Continue reading How 3D Space is Represented in the Mammalian Cortex by the Brain’s “GPS” System? (Neuroscience)

Recycling a Cell’s Energy Centers to Ward Off Parkinson’s Disease (Neuroscience)

Scientists have long known that living cells are master recyclers, constantly breaking down old parts and building them back up into new molecular machines. Now, researchers at Gladstone Institutes have taken a closer look at the life cycle of energy-generating cellular power plants—called mitochondria— inside brain cells, and how they might be recycled. They showed … Continue reading Recycling a Cell’s Energy Centers to Ward Off Parkinson’s Disease (Neuroscience)

Detailed Look at Earliest Moments of Supernova Explosion (Cosmology)

This is the first time anyone has had such a detailed look at a complete shock cooling curve in any supernova. In a world-first, astronomers at The Australian National University (ANU), working with NASA and an international team of researchers, have captured the first moments of a supernova – the explosive death of stars – in … Continue reading Detailed Look at Earliest Moments of Supernova Explosion (Cosmology)

UT Southwestern Finds Crucial New Molecular Mechanisms and Biomarkers in Ovarian Cancer (Medicine)

UT Southwestern faculty have discovered what appears to be an Achilles’ heel in ovarian cancers, as well as new biomarkers that could point to which patients are the best candidates for possible new treatments. The finding, published in the journal Cell, was made in part using a research tool invented in a UT Southwestern lab in the Cecil H. and … Continue reading UT Southwestern Finds Crucial New Molecular Mechanisms and Biomarkers in Ovarian Cancer (Medicine)

New Tool Predicts Sudden Death in Inflammatory Heart Disease (Medicine)

Johns Hopkins University scientists have developed a new tool for predicting which patients suffering from a complex inflammatory heart disease are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. Published in Science Advances, their method is the first to combine models of patients’ hearts built from multiple images with the power of machine learning. “This robust new personalized … Continue reading New Tool Predicts Sudden Death in Inflammatory Heart Disease (Medicine)
