ASCO 2024: Unleashing the Power of Precision Oncology and Immuno-Therapeutics

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting is a pivotal event that brings together experts in the field of oncology to share groundbreaking research and advancements in cancer care. ASCO 2024 continued to push the boundaries of scientific discovery, with an emphasis on precision medicine, immunotherapy, and emerging technologies

Gene therapy reversing hereditary deafness?

Gene therapy reversing hereditary deafness?

In a groundbreaking clinical trial, researchers have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of a novel gene therapy approach to restore hearing in children born with a rare genetic form of deafness. The results, published in Nature Medicine, offer hope for millions worldwide suffering from inherited hearing loss.

Predicting Cancer Risk with Digital Health Records

Predicting Cancer Risk with Digital Health Records

Every day we leave traces of our lives in digital systems. While privacy concerns abound, this digitization of daily life also presents new opportunities for medical research. Scientists are now tapping into nationwide databases of electronic health records to gain insights that were previously impossible

U.K. Whooping cough cases continue to rise

U.K. Whooping cough cases continue to rise

New data published today by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) shows cases of whooping cough continue to increase with 1,319 cases confirmed in March, bringing the total number of cases in 2024 to 2,793

  • Quantum entanglement measures Earth rotation
    on June, 2024 at 6:19 pm

    Researchers carried out a pioneering experiment where they measured the effect of the rotation of Earth on quantum entangled photons. The work represents a significant achievement that pushes the boundaries of rotation sensitivity in entanglement-based sensors, potentially setting the stage for […]

    An international team has discovered a spectrum characteristic of an altermagnetic material with X-ray magnetic circular dichroism.

  • A liquid crystal source of photon pairs
    on June, 2024 at 6:19 pm

    Spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC), as a source of entangled photons, is of great interest for quantum physics and quantum technology, but so far it could be only implemented in solids. Researchers have demonstrated, for the first time, SPDC in a liquid crystal. The results open a path […]

  • Strengthener for graphene
    on June, 2024 at 6:19 pm

    Layers of carbon atoms in a honeycomb array are a true supermaterial: their unusually high conductivity and favorable mechanical properties could further the development of bendable electronics, new batteries, and innovative composite materials for aeronautics and space flight. However, the […]

Hubble Organisation

Since it launch on the Spacce Shuttle Discovery on On April 24, 1990, Hubble has revealed properties of space and time that for most of human history were only probed in the imaginations of scientists and philosophers. 

Sense About Science

Sense about Science is an independent charity that promotes the public interest in sound science and evidence. Founded in 2002, Sense about Science works with decision-makers, world-leading researchers and community groups to raise the standard of evidence in public life.

Chandra Observatory

Since its launch on July 23, 1999, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has been NASA’s flagship mission for X-ray astronomy, taking its place in the fleet of “Great Observatories.”

The IUCN Red List

Established in 1964, the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species has evolved to become the world’s most comprehensive information source on the global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species.

Scott Hartman's Skeletal Drawings

Scott Hartman’s detailed and rigorous skeletal reconstructions set the standard for sauropods: he’s now become the first port of call when looking for precise, anatomically correct work.

After 11 years, Boston Dynamics has said goodbye to its humanoid robot ATLAS HD. The robotics company says it’s time for ATLAS to “kick back and relax” in retirement, letting the new all electric ATLAS take over. This video was shared to remember ATLAS HD’s great moments and those not so great.

 

Header Banner: Snow was a British physician who is considered one of the founders of epidemiology for his work identifying the source of a cholera outbreak in 1854. After careful investigation, including plotting cases of cholera on a map of the area, Snow was able to identify a water pump in Broad (now Broadwick) Street as the source of the disease. He had the handle of the pump removed, and cases of cholera immediately began to diminish. However, Snow’s ‘germ’ theory of disease was not widely accepted until the 1860s. The DarkDrug Logo shows the small pox virus, eradicated from the wild through effective vaccination after Edward Jenner’s discovery in  1798. The last naturally occurring case was diagnosed in October 1977 and the World Health Organization certified the global eradication of the disease in 1980.
