Foundation Provides Over $1 Million for MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound Training

The Focused Ultrasound Surgery Foundation has established the "Fellowships in Focused Ultrasound" initiative to give clinicians and clinician scientists the opportunity to spend a year at an established MRgFUS center receiving training from an experienced mentor. Fellows will have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of MRgFUS, treatment protocols, and participate in clinical trials and scientific research. Fellowship mentoring is available at a number of MRgFUS centers.

Cosmologists Aim to Observe First Moments of Universe

During the next decade, a delicate measurement of primordial light could reveal convincing evidence for the popular cosmic inflation theory, which proposes that a random, microscopic density fluctuation in the fabric of space and time gave birth to the universe in a hot big bang.

Researchers Discover Metabolite Linked to Aggressive Prostate Cancer

Researchers from the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified a panel of small molecules, or metabolites, that appear to indicate aggressive prostate cancer. The finding could lead to a simple test that would help doctors determine which prostate cancers are slow-growing and which require immediate, aggressive treatment.

For Valentine's Day: A Look at Romantic Love on Life Lines Podcast

Love is usually associated with the heart: Valentine's Day chocolates, for example, often come in a (stylized) heart-shaped box. But recent studies by neuroscientists show that love is actually very much in our heads. Hear about a series of studies on romantic love on Life Lines, the podcast of The American Physiological Society.
