The fight against cystic fibrosis (CF) has taken a major step forward, with researchers showing that cells causing this genetic disorder could be successfully replaced with healthy ones.
Australian researchers have identified a new mechanism used by Henipaviruses in infection, and potential new targets for antivirals to treat them.
Using human pluripotent stem cells, researchers have shown that a gene called NKX2-5 is responsible for regulating heart rhythm and heart muscle cell development.
The N-ICE Trial will see researchers investigate whether N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) can reduce cravings for crystal methamphetamine, or 'ice'.
Scientists at a US-based hospital have identified the mechanism that determines how T cells specialise their development.
Scientists at Newcastle University, UK, have 3D-printed the first human corneas.
If you thought stress was a solely human trait, you thought wrong.
A new hybrid technique enhances the effectiveness of a special form of radiation therapy for cancer treatment.
Bacteria's ability to transfer genes, like those associated with antibiotic resistance, is governed by a previously unknown set of rules that are written in the DNA of the recipient.
Researchers have visualised how the protein SOCS1 'switches off' cell signalling to dampen immune responses and block cancer growth.
Griffith University, the latest collaborating partner of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), will host a CNBP research node at its Gold Coast campus.
Researchers from Australia, Brazil and the US have developed a fast and effective tool to detect Zika virus.
The University of South Australia's (UniSA) $247 million Cancer Research Institute has opened.
The reproducibility problem has plagued biomedical science for decades, but it came into the limelight in 2012 when Amgen scientists reported that they couldn't reproduce 47 out of 53 'landmark' publications.
CerePlex Exilis from Blackrock Microsystems is a lightweight, wireless digital head stage that provides a platform for freely behaving small animal models in neuroscience research. It offers high-quality neural data via wireless transmission while keeping an ultralow weight and size, enabling many novel research paradigms.
