Inhalation Therapy Shows Promise Against Pulmonary Fibrosis in Mice, Rats
North Carolina State University

A new study shows that lung stem cell secretions – specifically exosomes and secretomes – delivered via nebulizer, can help repair lung injuries due to multiple types of pulmonary fibrosis in mice and rats.

Antarctic Ice Walls Protect the Climate
University of Gothenburg

Inland Antarctic ice contains volumes of water that can raise global sea levels by several metres. A new study published in the journal Nature shows that glacier ice walls are vital for the climate, as they prevent rising ocean temperatures and melting glacier ice.

How Resident Microbes Restructure Body Chemistry
University of California San Diego Health

A comparison of normal and germ-free mice revealed that as much as 70 percent of a mouse’s gut chemistry is determined by its gut microbiome. Even in distant organs, such as the uterus or the brain, approximately 20 percent of molecules were different in the mice with gut microbes.

Researchers Overcome the Space Between Protons and Neutrons to Study Heart of Matter
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Nuclear physicists have entered a new era for probing the strongest force in the universe at its very heart with a novel method of accessing the space between protons and neutrons in dense environments. The research, which was carried out at the Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, has been published in the journal Nature and opens the door for more precision studies of the strongest part of the strong nuclear force and the structure of neutron stars.

New bile discovery will rewrite textbooks
Michigan State University

Forget what you know about bile because that's about to change, thanks to a new discovery made by Michigan State University and published in the current issue of Nature. Much of our knowledge about bile hasn’t changed in many decades. It’s produced in the liver, stored in our gall bladder and injected into our intestine when we eat, where it breaks down fats in our gut.

Columbia team discovers new way to control the phase of light using 2D materials
Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia University researchers announced that they have discovered a new way to control the phase of light using 2D materials--atomically thin materials, ∼ 0.8 nanometer, or 1/100000 the size of a human hair--without changing its amplitude, at extremely low electrical power dissipation.

Each Mediterranean island has its own genetic pattern
University of Vienna

A Team around Anthropologist Ron Pinhasi from the University of Vienna – together with researchers from the University of Florence and Harvard University – found out that prehistoric migration from Africa, Asia and Europe to the Mediterranean islands took place long before the era of the Mediterranean seafaring civilizations.
