Multidrug-resistant fungi found in commercial soil, compost, flower bulbs
University of Georgia

That pile of soil you bought at the home improvement store may contain more than just dirt, according to new research from the University of Georgia. A new UGA study found high levels of multidrug-resistant fungi in commercially available compost, soil and flower bulbs. Aspergillus fumigatus is a widespread fungus that thrives in soil. But it also poses a serious risk to human health if inhaled. People with compromised immune systems are particularly vulnerable to the opportunistic fungus, facing a near 100% fatality rate if infected with a multidrug-resistant strain.

Drug delivery via textile fibers
Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology

Medical products such as ointments or syringes reach their limits when it comes to delivering medication locally – and above all in a controlled manner over a longer period of time. Empa researchers are therefore developing polymer fibers that can deliver active ingredients precisely over the long term. These "liquid core fibers" contain drugs inside and can be processed into medical textiles.

Harvesting microbes for growth: a soybean success story in acidic soils
Chinese Academy of Sciences

A cutting-edge study reveals that inoculating arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) into acidic soils significantly bolsters soybean growth, particularly in plants with enhanced phosphorus efficiency. This eco-friendly method outperforms traditional phosphorus fertilization, offering a promising strategy for sustainable agriculture in nutrient-scarce environments.

Study: Teacher Perceptions of Chronically Absent Young Students May Add to the Challenges of Missing School
American Educational Research Association (AERA)

A new study finds that early elementary school teachers report feeling less close to chronically absent students and view them less positively, even when those students do not cause trouble in the classroom.

Newswise: Nanowires Create Elite Warriors to Enhance T Cell Therapy

Nanowires Create Elite Warriors to Enhance T Cell Therapy
Georgia Institute of Technology

Georgia Tech bioengineer Ankur Singh and his team have developed a method to enhance adoptive T-cell therapy using nanowires to deliver miRNA to T-cells, preserving their naïve state for more effective disease-fighting. This innovative technique allows the T-cells to remain programmable and robust, offering a potential gamechanger for immunotherapies.
