A new study reveals that the human body is an amazing piece of kit made up of trillions of cells that work together to enable you to do everything you want and need to. A medical researcher is appealing to 20,000 members of the public to take part in an online citizen science project about human anatomy.

Researchers have created the first detailed genetic map of human proteins, the key building blocks of biology. These discoveries promise to enhance our understanding of a wide range of diseases and aid development of new drugs. The study was published in the journal Nature.
Researcher identifies clear predictors of rising A1C levels in young persons, as well as ways to improve glycemic control in this population. Managing type 1diabetes during the first two decades of life is challenging. Insulin requirements change along with the stages of life childhood, puberty, young adulthood, and beyond. But a 20-year longitudinal study conducted by researchers from Joslin Diabetes Center and Harvard Medical School identifies clear predictors of rising A1C levels in young persons, as well as ways to improve glycemic control in this population. The study has been published online by Diabetic Medicine.
A new study examines that researchers aim to raise awareness of a rare but extremely distressing phenomenon: patients being aware during resuscitation following a cardiac arrest. Awareness during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has been reported in the medical literature but is an extremely rare event and it is still not clear whether these tragic cases have anything in common.

According to a new study, researchers examine that most participants in clinical trials believe the benefits of broadly sharing person-level data outweigh the risks. The study was published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Researchers have developed new cell-based technologies which could help improve understanding of the muscle-wasting disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and test potential drugs for the disease.
