A PROMISE to trace the path of individual carbon atoms

Like water molecules in a river, soil carbon atoms are always in motion. To better understand this action, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists and collaborators have created a new conceptual framework as well as a simulation model that traces the path of individual carbon atoms as they interact with the environment — undergoing biochemical transformations, moving […]

Targeted delivery of anti-inflammatory therapy shows promise in slowing progression of multiple sclerosis

Intranasal administration of an anti-inflammatory drug helped reduce disease progression in a preclinical model of multiple sclerosis, according to recent research out of the University of Alberta. Christopher Power, a professor in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry, and Leina Saito, a graduate student on his team, showed that delivering an anti-inflammatory drug to mice helped prevent […]
