Scientists Get the Drop on the Cell’s Nucleus

New York University

A team of physicists has devised a novel strategy that uses naturally occurring motions inside the human cell nucleus to measure the physical properties of the nucleus and its components. The method offers a potential new means for illuminating the physical properties of unhealthy cells, such as those linked to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

What’s in your DNA? Poll of older adults shows high interest, with a dose of skepticism

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

A new poll shows that only a small percentage of people in their 50s and early 60s have had their DNA tested – either for medical reasons, to learn their ancestry or out of curiosity – but far more have an interest in getting tested. However, two thirds said genetic testing could lead them to worry too much about their future health.
