Computer Game May Help to Predict Reuse of Opioids

NYU Langone Health

A computer betting game can help predict the likelihood that someone recovering from opioid addiction will reuse the pain-relieving drugs, a new study shows.

Little Size Holds Big Impact: Johns Hopkins Scientists Develop Nanocontainer to Ship Titan-Size Gene Therapies And Drugs Into Cells

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine report they have created a tiny, nanosize container that can slip inside cells and deliver protein-based medicines and gene therapies of any size — even hefty ones attached to the gene-editing tool called CRISPR. If their creation – constructed of a biodegradable polymer — passes more laboratory testing, it could offer a way to efficiently ferry larger medical compounds into specifically selected target cells.

Newswise: Technique shows how individual cancer cells react to drugs

Technique shows how individual cancer cells react to drugs

University of Washington School of Medicine

A new technique reported in Science offers more detail, at the single cell level, on how large, pooled samples of various cells react to drugs or other agents. The data might reveal mode of action or the effect of genetic differences in varying responses.

SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Helps Researchers Predict Carbon Dioxide Levels

University of California San Diego

The Global Change Biology Journal earlier this year published findings related to the Effects of 21st Century Climate, Land Use, and Disturbances on Ecosystem Carbon Balance in California after using the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s Comet supercomputer to create simulations of various global climate, land-use, and emissions models.

Newswise: Mouse Study Shows Nerve Signaling Pathway Critical to Healing Fractures

Mouse Study Shows Nerve Signaling Pathway Critical to Healing Fractures

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Sticks and stones may break one’s bones, but healing them requires the production of a protein signal that stimulates the generation, growth and spread of vital nerve cells, or neurons, throughout the injured area. That’s the finding of a recent Johns Hopkins Medicine study that used mice to demonstrate what likely takes place during human fracture repair as well.

New study hints at complex decision-making in a single-cell organism

Harvard Medical School

New study reveals hierarchy of behaviors in a single-cell organism The organism, S. roeselii, appears to “change its mind” and modify its response to repeated exposure to irritating particles Findings suggest certain single-cell organisms may have the capacity for relatively complex "decision-making"
