University of Nebraska-Lincoln researchers may have identified a vaccine that would defend against Zika virus without producing antibodies. Researcher Eric Weaver described the finding as exciting and novel. He and his team are confident that future experiments will yield significant findings that could have a profound impact on the field of vaccinology.

Researchers at the University of Sussex have created the fastest and most energy efficient simulation of a mouse brain using off-the-shelf computer hardware . Dr James Knight and Prof Thomas Nowotny from the University of Sussex's School of Engineering and Informatics have published the top 50 supercomputers by running brain simulations using their own GeNN software and Graphics Processing Units (GPUs).
In 2015, then President Barack Obama launched a precision medicine initiative, saying that its promise was "delivering the right treatments, at the right time, every time to the right person."
A team of researchers with members from the Netherlands and the U.S. has found differences in the numbers of gut microbes for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
In their paper published in the journal Science Translational Medicine the group describes how they sequenced the genome of gut microbes in patients with bowel problems and what they found.
Dementia is common to a variety of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD) and Down syndrome (DS). This characteristic symptom is one of the significant causes of disability and dependency among older people. Worldwide, around 50 million people have dementia, and there are nearly 10 million new cases every year.
Scientists have taken a key step toward improving an emerging class of treatments for Parkinson's disease. The advance could markedly improve the next generation of therapies for the condition, which affects around one in 350 people in the UK.
A new study led by researchers at the Columbia Center for Children's Environmental Health (CCCEH) organizes the available scientific evidence on the effects of air pollution on children's health.
A new compound that inhibits the replication of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in several stages of its lifecycle – and is capable of acting on bacteria, fungi, and cancer cells – has been synthesized by researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Brazil
Issued in conjunction with The Michael J. Fox Foundation, important consensus guidelines for running proof of concept preclinical and clinical trials of drugs targeting alpha-synuclein to slow or arrest the progression of the disease published in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease.
Micropores in fabricated tissues such as bone and cartilage allow nutrient and oxygen diffusion into the core, and this novel approach may eventually allow lab-grown tissue to contain blood vessels, according to a team of Penn State researchers.
Antibodies and their derivatives radiolabelled with positron and gamma emitting radiometals enable sensitive and quantitative molecular Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) imaging of antibody distribution in vivo.
A team of researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have developed novel ferrocene-based molecules that impair the malaria parasite's metabolic function leading to parasite death.
