Have scientists cracked the secret to a longer life? – study

Taurine, a nutrient produced by the body and found in certain foods, may hold the secret to slowing down the aging process, according to a new study published on June 9. The peer-reviewed study, published in the journal Sciencefound that animals with taurine deficiency age more intensely. The study also found that taurine supplements slowed […]

Challenging the Fundamental Laws of Biology – Scientists Discover Real-Life Chimeras

International researchers studying the yellow crazy ant, or Anoplolepis gracilipes, found that the male ants of this species are chimeras, containing two different parent cell genomes in their bodies. This unique reproductive process, originating from a single fertilized egg that undergoes separate maternal and paternal nuclear division, is unprecedented and challenges the fundamental law of […]

Students explore a marine protected area and become scientists on World Oceans Day

A few dozen college students enjoyed a special treat on Thursday morning as they embarked on a marine protected areas science cruise from Davey’s Locker in Newport Beach on World Oceans Day . When the Western Pride left port, the students were divided into groups for plankton collection, digital fishing, and water quality sampling. Before […]

Stephen Hawking wanted scientists to "create black holes" on Earth.  Physics says it's possible.

Stephen Hawking wanted scientists to “create black holes” on Earth. Physics says it’s possible.

“Hope you black holes,” Stephen said with a broad smile. We exited the freight elevator that had taken us underground to the five-storey cavern housing the ATLAS experiment at the laboratory of CERN, the legendary European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva. CERN Director General Rolf Heuer shuffled his feet worriedly. It was 2009, and […]

The pull of the moon is so strong that it can trigger earthquakes on Earth.  Scientists are still baffled by its potency.

The pull of the moon is so strong that it can trigger earthquakes on Earth. Scientists are still baffled by its potency.

The Moon’s gravity is constantly pulling on the Earth. Its appeal to the oceans is undeniable, but some scientists are studying less visible effects. They discovered that the moon could trigger earthquakes, if the time was right. Loading Something is loading. Thanks for recording! Access your favorite topics in a personalized feed on the go. […]

Scientists find patients' brains 'age' after changing diet

Scientists find patients’ brains ‘age’ after changing diet

Switching to a diet high in fresh vegetables and low in processed foods could do wonders for your biological brain age, according to new research. According to the international team of researchers who conducted the study, a Mediterranean diet high in vegetables, seafood and whole grains appears to slow the signs of accelerated brain aging […]

Inaugural symposium draws diverse scientists and underrepresented voices to MIT

Inaugural symposium draws diverse scientists and underrepresented voices to MIT

MIT’s biology community recently welcomed eight postdocs – Catalyst Fellows – to campus for the inaugural Catalyst Symposium. Catalysts speed up reactions, and the symposium aims to accelerate progress on inclusive diversity – not just at MIT, but at top research institutions across the country, according to Professor Amy Keating, head of the biology department.
