- Biologist leads pioneering study on stress July 19, 2019A biologist at Louisiana State University conducted a pioneering research study that could help us to better understand the role of dopamine in stress resilience in humans through analyzing wild songbirds. This study could lead to increased prevention and treatment of stress-related disorders.
- Discovering how diabetes leads to vascular disease July 19, 2019A team of UC Davis Health scientists and physicians has identified a cellular connection between diabetes and one of its major complications -- blood vessel narrowing that increases risks of several serious health conditions, including heart disease and stroke.
- Take a bath 90 minutes before bedtime to get better sleep July 19, 2019Biomedical engineers at UT Austin have found a way for people to get better shuteye. Systematic review protocols allowed researchers to analyze thousands of studies linking water-based passive body heating, or bathing and showering with warm/hot water, with improved sleep quality.
- New research finds private practice physicians less likely to maintain electronic records July 19, 2019The research led by Jordan Everson, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC), finds striking differences in use of electronic health records (EHRs) among more than 291,000 physicians included in the study.
- Teacher treatment of students factors into racial gap in school suspensions July 19, 2019An analysis led by Brown sociologist Jayanti Owens found that different treatment of black and white students accounted for half of the racial gap in school suspensions and expulsions among 5- to 9-year-old children.
- KIST uesed eco-friendly composite catalyst and ultrasound to remove pollutants from water July 19, 2019Developed eco-friendly, low-cost, and high-efficiency wastewater processing catalyst made from agricultural byproduct, and High efficiency and removal rate achieved through application of ultrasound stimulation, leading to high expectation for the development of an environmental hormone removal system.
- Routine blood tests could predict diabetes July 19, 2019A study that looked at data on more than 900,000 VA patients showed that elevated blood glucose levels detected in routine outpatient tests, though well below diagnostic thresholds, predicted diabetes within 5 years.
- USF geoscientists discover mechanisms controlling Greenland ice sheet collapse July 19, 2019New radar technology allowed USF geoscientists to look at Greenland's dynamic ice-ocean interface that drives sea level rise.
- Smart irrigation model predicts rainfall to conserve water July 19, 2019A predictive model combining information about plant physiology, real-time soil conditions and weather forecasts can help make more informed decisions about when and how much to irrigate. This could save 40 percent of the water consumed by more traditional methods, according to new Cornell University research.
