Alzheimer’s missing link ID’d, answering what tips brain’s decline

Washington University in St. Louis

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have found that immune cells that typically protect neurons from damage may be the link between early and late brain changes in Alzheimer’s disease. Breaking that link could lead to new approaches to delay or prevent the disease.

Columbia Researchers Provide New Evidence on the Reliability of Climate Modeling

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

For decades, scientists studying a key climate phenomenon have been grappling with contradictory data that have threated to undermine confidence in the reliability of climate models overall. A new Columbia Engineering study settles that debate with regard to the Hadley cell, a tropical atmospheric circulation widely studied by climate scientists because it controls precipitation in the subtropics and also creates a region called the intertropical convergence zone, producing a band of major, highly precipitative storms.

Blood Metabolite Levels May Help Identify Diabetic Kidney Disease

American Physiological Society (APS)

Metabolomics, the study of small molecules the body produces during metabolism (metabolites) may be a future key to identifying diabetes-related kidney disease. The finding will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) conference, Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease, in Charlottesville, Va.

Newly established Phyllis Mailman Professorship will advance the research and development of lifesaving vaccines

Columbia University Irving Medical Center

In honor of philanthropist Phyllis Mailman, The Mailman Foundation, the Joshua Mailman Foundation, and The Tow Foundation, have together endowed the Phyllis Mailman Professorship to support groundbreaking emerging infectious disease research at the Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University. The endowed professorship will be based in the Mailman School’s world-class Center for Infection and Immunity (CII), led by director Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a globally-recognized microbe hunter who has identified more than 1,500 novel viruses. The newly created faculty position will support a distinguished researcher in the field of emerging infectious diseases.
