One of the primary social motivations for scientific research is the ability to make better decisions based on the results.
A team of material scientists, chemical engineers and physicists from the University of Pennsylvania has made another advance in their effort to use liquid crystals as a medium for assembling structures.
Sleep, or the lack of it, seems to affect just about every aspect of human physiology.
A new study suggests a potential dietary treatment - a cocktail of key amino acids that improved sleep disturbances caused by brain injuries in mice - for millions of people affected by traumatic brain injury (TBI)—a condition that is currently untreatable.
The idea of growing replacement tissue to repair an organ, or to swap it out for an entirely new one, is rapidly transitioning from science fiction to fact.
Ragini Verma of the Perelman School of Medicine is cited for studying brain differences between men and women.
Penn Med Team Reports on Study of First 59 Leukemia Patients Who Received Personalized Cellular Therapy
Three and a half years after beginning a clinical trial which demonstrated the first successful and sustained use of genetically engineered T cells to fight leukemia, a research team from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia will today announce the latest results of studies involving both adults and children with advanced blood cancers that have failed to respond to standard therapies.
Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine are cited for collaborating with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for studying T-cell effectiveness on leukemia.
The heart maintains a careful balancing act; too soft and it won’t pump blood, but too hard and it will overtax itself and stop entirely. There is an optimal amount of strain that a beating heart can generate and still beat at its usual rate, once per second.
