New research by scientists at the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA overturns a long-standing paradigm about how axons grow during embryonic development. The findings of the study, led by Samantha Butler, associate professor of neurobiology, could help scientists replicate or control the way axons grow, which may be applicable for diseases that affect the nervous system, such as diabetes, as well as injuries that sever nerves.

On Friday, April 21, 89-year-old Ruth Moll will take a break from her volunteer duties to participate in Cedars-Sinai's 33rd annual Yom Ha'Shoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) observance. As she has for many years, she will be part of a select group to light candles for the 6 million European Jews who were killed by the Nazis. She was just 10 years old in 1939 when her father was sent to a Nazi concentration camp. She and her sisters said goodbye to their mother — perhaps forever — boarded a German train and became three of the estimated 10,000 Jewish children who were saved from the Holocaust by the Kindertransport (German for "children's transport"), a series of rescues organized by the British.

For some baby boomers, getting ready for a routine visit with their doctor is like training for a marathon. Some patients want to be in the best shape possible before stepping on that scale and getting those lab results. Others are so anxious about their vital stats being below par that they consider postponing or even canceling their examinations, doctors report.
