Tracking How HIV Disrupts Immune System Informs Vaccine Development

One of the main mysteries confounding development of an HIV vaccine is why some people infected with the virus make the desired antibodies after several years, but a vaccine can’t seem to induce the same response.

Sex and Death Insights From a Mutant Roundworm

Suddenly, a roundworm overhauls an array of survival strategies all at once, and researchers suspect multiple mutations caused them. But they're surprised when they trace the sweeping changes back to one tiny mutation on a single gene. It's a great hint at a genetic regulator of so-called life history trade-offs, a much observed natural phenomenon.

Use of Internet in Medical Research May Hinder Recruitment of Minorities, Poor

A study led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis concludes that as researchers turn to the internet to find study participants, current health-care disparities may persist. They found that getting individuals to go online was difficult, particularly if subjects didn't have high school educations, had incomes below the poverty line or were African-American.

Can Adirondack Forests Help Fight Climate Change?

Environmental studies and sciences professor Kurt Smemo and student researchers Daniel Casarella ’18 and Jen Cristiano ’18 have embarked on an ambitious, multiyear study to identify a primary factor for controlling organic-matter decomposition in forest ecosystems—processes that either capture or release carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and therefore mediate our climate system.

For the First Time, Researchers See Structure That Allows Brain Cells to Communicate

For more than a century, neuroscientists have known that nerve cells talk to one another across the small gaps between them, a process known as synaptic transmission. But the details of how this crucial aspect of brain function occurs have remained elusive. Now, new research has for the first time elucidated details about the architecture that Allows Brain Cells to Communicate. The paper was published today in the journal Nature.

Team Led by Texas Tech Physicists Discovers Loneliest Young Star

Alone on the cosmic road, far from any known celestial object, a young, independent star is going through a tremendous growth spurt. when a team led by Texas Tech University Department of Physics associate professor Tom Maccarone and postdoctoral researcher Chris Britt examined infrared images of the same area, they realized this object has a lot of warm dust around it, which must have been heated by an outburst. Researchers determined it likely is a young star that has been outbursting for several years.

Excluding High-Risk Cardiac Patients From Public Reporting Linked to Improved Outcomes

A number of states – including Massachusetts and New York – mandate public reporting of mortality outcomes following certain cardiac procedures. While such reporting was originally intended to increase transparency and improve quality of care, a new study led by researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and the University of Washington has shown that public reporting may in fact disincentivize physicians from offering potentially lifesaving treatment to patients who are at the greatest risk of mortality and poor outcomes. However, reforms to public reporting policies can mitigate these undesired effects, the authors report in a paper published online today in JAMA Cardiology.

Video: Earthquake-Resilient Pipeline Could Shake Up Future for Aging Infrastructure on West Coast

A top engineer from the city of Los Angeles visited Cornell University this month as researchers tested a new earthquake-resilient pipeline designed to better protect southern California’s water utility network from natural disasters. The test mimicked a fault rupture that can occur during an earthquake when global plates begin to slip past each other, causing the ground to shift and deform.
