How a Poorly Explored Immune Cell May Impact Cancer Immunity and Immunotherapy

The immune cells that are trained to fight off the body’s invaders can become defective. It’s what allows cancer to develop. So most research has targeted these co-called effector T-cells. But a new study takes a step back and considers: What if the problem isn’t with the effector T-cells but starts higher up the cellular chain?

Water World

Following the paths of radicals and finding many damaged residues because of incredibly accurate, fast and sensitive mass spectrometry, three Washington University scientists studied the great granddaddy of all photosynthetic organisms — a strain of cyanobacteria — to develop the first experimental map of that organism’s water world.

Like a Baby: The Vicious Cycle of Childhood Obesity and Snoring

Poor nutrition and lack of exercise lead to the increasing prevalence of obesity which, in turn, is the major predictor of diabetes and future risk of cardiovascular disease in western societies. Excess weight is also closely associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the increasingly common and potentially serious sleep disorder that is often marked by loud snoring. OSA affects about 5 to 10 percent of children 8 to 11 years old. While evidence suggests that OSA appears to exacerbate obesity and its comorbidities such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, its effects on children have not yet been studied in detail.

Genomics Researcher Peters Tackles a Brave New World

As a young scientist, British researcher David Peters was focused on brain aneurysms as researched through the lens of high-throughput genomics. But when his wife became pregnant with the first of their two children, his world – both as a husband and a scientist – dramatically changed course.

When to Fish: Timing Matters for Fish That Migrate to Reproduce

ASP_Day3-1054.jpg

A new University of Washington study points to yet another human factor that is hampering the ability of fish to reproduce: the timing of our fishing seasons. The study considers how the timing of fishing efforts might disproportionately target certain fish and change the life history patterns of entire populations.

Cornell Mathematician's Study of ‘Swarmalators’ Could Direct Future Science

How does the Japanese tree frog figure into the latest work of noted mathematician Steven Strogatz? As it turns out, quite prominently. Cornell researchers used the curious mating ritual of male Japanese tree frogs as inspiration for their exploration of “swarmalators” – their term for systems in which both synchronization and swarming occur together.
