CRISPR-Cas9 is a revolutionary gene-editing tool, but it’s not without its downsides. Now, scientists at Harvard have demonstrated an alternative genetic engineering system called Retron Library Recombineering (RLR), which works without cutting DNA and can be quickly applied to huge populations of cells.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: gene therapy, Genetic engineering, Genetics, B
Obesity has long been linked to cancer, but the complete picture still eludes scientists. Now, a new study from Harvard highlights some missing pieces of the puzzle, finding that cancer cells can use the higher fat availability to starve immune cells of fuel and prevent them from targeting tumors.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Tumor, Tumors, Immunotherapy, Fat cells, Obes
New research from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health has found diets higher in foods known to contribute to chronic inflammation can increase a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. The research suggests certain pro-inflammatory foods may generate a synergistic effect amplifying the development of heart disease.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTa
People exercise for all kinds of reasons, but a couple of common reasons are to burn off some fat and to increase the limits of their physical performance. Newly published research from scientists at Harvard University has implicated one mechanism in both outcomes, finding that mice engineered to lack a certain enzyme showed significant increases in exercise endurance and fat-burning capacity as
Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have sued the Trump administration in federal court to block an order that would mean all international students not attending in-person classes would be stripped of visas. Read more
HAMR-JR can’t climb up the waterspout yet but it can run, jump, and carry heavy payloads, making it one of the most dexterous microrobots to date. The post HAMR-JR, coin-sized robot by harvard researchers inspired by a cockroach appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A new study, led by scientists from Harvard University, is offering more compelling evidence of a link between the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and the gut microbiome. One researcher described the discovery as “remarkable”, after finding genetically identical mice displayed different health outcomes determined by their specific gut bacteria communities.Continue ReadingCatego
Both the now-infamous horror game Devotion and Red Candle†™s previous horror entry Detention have been added to the Harvard-Yenching Library. ...
A team of Harvard scientists has finally solved the mystery of how acute stress causes hair to turn gray. The researchers discovered when stress triggers the "fight or flight" response, it depletes pigment-producing stem cells in hair follicles.
Researchers have incorporated living microbes into 3D printed objects. The resin material is embedded with chemical “instructions” that tell a layer of microbes to fluoresce in particular colors, producing a stunning array of patterns and designs. is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
