Gut Bacteria May Hold the Key to Preventing Severe Infections

Gut Bacteria May Hold the Key to Preventing Severe Infections

The Global Burden of Disease study estimated that in 2019, approximately 25% of all deaths worldwide were due to infections. Emerging evidence suggests that the key to reducing susceptibility to infections may lie within the trillions of microbes that inhabit our gut – the gut microbiome

    Scientists have developed a tiny 'claw machine' that is able to pick up and drop a marble-sized ball in response to exposure to chemical vapors. The findings point to a technique that can enable soft actuators--the parts of a machine that make it move--to perform multiple tasks without the need for […]

  • A better way to make RNA drugs
    on July, 2024 at 4:41 pm

    RNA drugs are the next frontier of medicine, but manufacturing them requires an expensive and labor-intensive process that limits production and produces metric tons of toxic chemical waste. Researchers report a new, enzyme-based RNA synthesis method that can produce strands of RNA with both […]

    A new study suggests that giving users control over the interface feature of autoplay can help them realize that they are going down a rabbit hole. The work has implications for responsibly designing online content viewing platforms and algorithms, as well as helping users better recognize extreme […]

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.
