Scientists Decipher Mechanisms Underlying the Biology of Aging

Scientists have helped decipher the dynamics that control how our cells age, and with it implications for extending human longevity. The group used cutting-edge computational and experimental approaches to discover new details about chromatin silencing. The bottom line: balance is the key to aging.

The Science of Consciousness

FINALWebArtTSCApr2-7-18-SM.jpg

The Science of Consciousness (‘TSC’) is an interdisciplinary conference emphasizing broad and rigorous approaches to all aspects of the study and understanding of conscious awareness. Topical areas include neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, biology, quantum physics, meditation, altered states, machine consciousness, the nature of reality, culture and experiential phenomenology. Held annually since 1994, the conference is hosted by the Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, and alternates yearly between Tucson, Arizona and various locations around the world. The next 'TSC', The Science of Consciousness, will be April 2-7, 2018 in Tucson Arizona at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort co-hosted with the University of Michigan, Center for Consciousness Science.

New Theory Addresses How Life on Earth Arose From the Primordial Muck

Scientists publish experimental evidence that life on Earth originated in an intimate partnership between the nucleic acids and small proteins. Their “peptide-RNA” hypothesis contradicts the widely held hypothesis that life originated from nucleic acids and only later evolved to include proteins.

New Data on Gender Inequality in Sciences Salaries

There is a difference between male and female physics faculty salaries and the culture of physics is partly to blame, according to an article that is available for free this month from Physics Today. The article, "Salaries for female physics faculty trail those for male colleagues," identifies key factors influencing the gender pay gap and offers potential solutions that include changes in the culture in physics departments.
