New 3-D Simulations Show How Galactic Centers Cool Their Jets

Scientists at Berkeley Lab and Purdue University developed new theories and 3-D simulations to explain what’s at work in the mysterious jets of energy and matter beaming from the center of galaxies at nearly the speed of light.

Novel Stem Cell-Derived Model Created of Inflammatory Neurological Disorder

An international team of scientists, led by University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers, has created a human stem cell-based model of a rare, but devastating, inherited neurological autoimmune condition called Aicardi-Goutieres Syndrome (AGS). In doing so, the team was able to identify unusual and surprising underlying genetic mechanisms that drive AGS and test strategies to inhibit the condition using existing drugs.

Test Uses Nanotechnology to Quickly Diagnose Zika Virus

Currently, testing for Zika requires that a blood sample be refrigerated and shipped to a medical center or laboratory, delaying diagnosis and possible treatment. Now, Washington University in St. Louis researchers have developed a test that quickly can detect the presence of Zika virus in blood. Although the new proof-of-concept technology has yet to be produced for use in medical situations, test results can be determined in minutes, and the materials do not require refrigeration.

Crank the AC, Cut in-Car Pollution

For many, the commute to and from work is a lengthy, stressful process. According to the U.S.  Census Bureau, it takes the average American about 26½ minutes to get to work. That’s nearly an hour each day — to work and back — to face traffic snarls and congested highways. That commute can also be hazardous to your health, exposing drivers to an increased amount of air pollutants that have been linked to a whole host of medical maladies, including cardiovascular disease, respiratory issues and even lung cancer.

Fire Chief Back to Full Duty After Spinal Fusion Surgery in His Neck

A neck condition called cervical myelopathy, which compresses the spinal cord, was severely limiting Kenneth Caudle's activity as both a firefighter and a family man. After a spinal fusion surgery in his neck, Mr. Caudle has returned to a full range of activities at the fire station and at home.
