Online Users Can Be Manipulated Into Sharing Private Information: New Research

New York, December 24: Online users are more likely to reveal private information based on how website forms are structured to elicit data, new research has found. The researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) in Israel showed that by using digital “foot-in-the-door” techniques, such as requesting personal information from less important to more […]

Targeting calcium overload could improve stroke outcomes, UVA research suggests

Excessive calcium contributes to harmful inflammation in ischemic stroke, and targeting it may provide doctors with a new way to improve patient outcomes, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests. Petr Tvrdik has found that immune cells called microglia are flooded with waves of calcium in the wake of ischemic strokes […]

New Phase of Microbiome Research

Trillions of microbes—bacteria, viruses, fungi—colonize in our bodies, and their genome of genetic instructions work alongside ours. Over the past two decades of microbiome research, scientists have accumulated a veritable field guide to these microbes that live on, in and around us, and they have begun to understand the integral role microbes play in our […]

Research boost to find treatments for ‘undruggable’ cancers

A research team at the University of Bath, in collaboration with biotechnology company Sapience Therapeutics, is redoubling its efforts to discover new peptide-based treatments capable of acting upon ‘undruggable’ targets in cancer cells. Some cancers are notoriously resistant to treatment – it is these tumours that are the focus of the ongoing collaboration between Sapience and […]
