VLA Reveals New Object Near Supermassive Black Hole in Famous Galaxy

nrao17df01d.jpg

Astronomers using the VLA found that a bright new object near a distant galaxy’s core is either a very rare type of supernova explosion or, more likely, an outburst from a second supermassive black hole closely orbiting the galaxy’s primary, central supermassive black hole.

Using a Genetic Signature to Overcome Chemotherapy-Resistant Lung Cancer Using a Genetic Signature to Overcome Chemotherapy-Resistant Lung Cancer

Patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) often respond to standard chemotherapy, only to develop drug resistance later, and with fatal consequences. But what if doctors could identify those at greatest risk of relapse and provide a therapy to overcome or avoid it?

Mistletoe Research May Keep You Healthy

FruitingMistletoeCaraballo.JPG

A new study examines the spread of mistletoe—a parasitic plant—and finds that the plant’s success is determined not only by its compatibility with a host tree, but also whether or not the plants’ fruiting seasons overlap. Knowing what factors are necessary for the parasite to spread may help scientists better understand the variability of other parasitic interactions, including infectious diseases.

Special X-Ray Technique Allows Scientists to See 3-D Deformations

3D_Bragg_900px.jpg

In a new study published last Friday in Science, researchers at Argonne used an X-ray scattering technique called Bragg coherent diffraction imaging to reconstruct in 3-D the size and shape of grain defects. These defects create imperfections in the lattice of atoms inside a grain that can give rise to interesting material properties and effects.

Skin Color No Shield Against Skin Cancer

The misconception that people with more pigment in their skin cells are protected from cancer-causing ultra-violet rays can be deadly. Melanoma, the least common form of skin cancer but also the deadliest, are more likely to be caused by genetics than the sun. Thus too many people of color don’t think to look for changing moles that can be fatal.

Endocrine Society Opposes Severe Cuts to Public Health, Medical Research Funding

The Endocrine Society warned that the President’s proposal to slash $7.16 billion, or more than a fifth, of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) budget, and $1.2 billion from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would hinder progress toward needed medical treatments and advances in public health and disease prevention.
