PS: It’s not cholesterol - Disease-related proteins carry surprising cargo

How our body processes cholesterol has a well-known impact on our health, but it turns out that another ‘fat molecule’ – or lipid – may be at the heart of some diseases which were thought to involve cholesterol.



A new player in brain disease and stroke

Research that shows how cells respond to brain damage may lead to a new treatment for stroke and neurodegenerative diseases.



Small area solar simulators for PV cell researchers

Oriel Instruments’ new series of LCS-100 solar simulators has been designed for PV cell researchers requiring the performance of a certified system over a small area of illumination.



Molecular switch controls the destiny of self-eating cells

In a new paper published in the journal Nature, researchers present a previously unknown mechanism that controls whether a cell survives autophagy, a process that can be compared to the cell consuming parts of itself.



Molecular discovery puts cancer treatment in a new perspective

Researchers from the University of Copenhagen and the National Institutes of Health have obtained ground-breaking new knowledge about proteases - important enzymes which, among other things, play a role in the development of cancer cells.



Scientists develop ground-breaking new method of ‘starving’ cancer cells

A University of Southampton Professor, in collaboration with colleagues at the BC Cancer Agency Research Centre, have discovered a novel way of killing cancer cells.



Technological breakthrough paves the way for better drugs

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have developed the first method for directly measuring the extent to which drugs reach their targets in the cell.



Brown fat responsible for from heart disease-related deaths in winter

More people die from heart-disease during the winter months, and according to a new study published in the journal Cell Metabolism, the increase in mortality is possibly due to the accelerated growth of atherosclerotic plaque in the blood vessels caused by the activation of brown fat by the cold.



Pioneering mouse research provides breakthrough in the search for adult brain stem cells

Generating new cells in the brain that regulate core body functions has moved one step closer as a result of state-of-the-art research at one of the UK's flagship research centres at the University of Sheffield.



Virtual skin model reveals secrets of skin aging

We constantly grow new skin and slough off the old. Until now, scientists have never agreed on exactly how this works, but new research from the University of Sheffield may provide the answer.



Danish researchers expose new cause of life-threatening disease

Danish researchers have just published findings that explain a previously unknown mechanism used by cells to communicate with one another.



£250k prize offered to encourage human toxicology breakthrough

A £250k prize is being offered to encourage researchers to deliver a breakthrough in toxicology research that could ultimately lead to the replacement of animals used in product safety testing.
