Amniotic Sac in a Dish: Stem Cells Form Structures That Could Aid Understanding of Infertility & More

The first few weeks after sperm meets egg still hold many mysteries. Among them: what causes the process to fail, leading to many cases of infertility. But scientists haven’t had a good way to explore the biology behind this phenomenon. Now, a new achievement using human stem cells could give researchers a chance to see what they couldn’t before, while avoiding ethical issues associated with studying actual embryos.

Natural Compound Coupled with Specific Gut Microbes May Prevent Severe Flu

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that a particular gut microbe can prevent severe flu infections in mice, likely by breaking down naturally occurring compounds — called flavonoids — commonly found in foods such as black tea, red wine and blueberries.

Standard Model of the Universe Withstands Most Precise Test by Dark Energy Survey

Astrophysicists have a fairly accurate understanding of how the universe ages: That’s the conclusion of new results from the Dark Energy Survey (DES), a large international science collaboration, including researchers from the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, that put models of cosmic structure formation and evolution to the most precise test yet.

Missouri S&T Chapter of Engineers Without Borders Completes Guatemalan Clean Water Project

After nearly a decade of work, a small Guatemalan village can now count on clean drinking water thanks to a group of student volunteers from Missouri University of Science and Technology. The Missouri S&T student chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) first traveled to Nahualate, Guatemala, in 2008 as part of a volunteer project to design and build a public water system. On Wednesday, Aug. 2, a delegation from EWB’s S&T chapter is scheduled to return to Central America to mark the project’s official completion.

Music Therapy Helps People with Parkinson’s Build Strength Through Song

A music therapy class is helping people with Parkinson's disease build strength through song. An Iowa State study shows singing improves the muscles used for swallowing and respiratory control – two functions complicated by Parkinson’s.

Pregnancy Loss and the Evolution of Sex Are Linked by Cellular Line Dance

In new research published this week (Aug. 1, 2017) in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Levitis and his collaborators report that meiosis takes a heavy toll on the viability of offspring. And not just for humans. Creatures from geckos to garlic and cactuses to cockroaches pay a price to undergo sexual reproduction.
