Academy eBriefings offer comprehensive reports on more than 100 cutting-edge scientific issues

The impact of national security concerns and bioterrorism on scientific research. The promise of nanotechnology. Scientific approaches to the problem of youth violence. Why Californians have higher rates of autism. Neurogenerative diseases and the role of chemical biology in developing new drugs. How scientists are accelerating the development of an AIDS vaccine. Understanding leukocytes and their role in fighting disease. How new cancer therapies are utilizing genomic data and microarray technology.

Since July 2003, with its inaugural eBriefing on promising new drugs for autism, the Academy's eBriefings at www.nyas.org have proven to be a vital source for thousands of people around the world eager to find out the latest news and research on topics such as diabetes, AIDS, cholesterol and obesity, vitamin E and aging, hunger in Africa, hydrogen-powered vehicles, and other cutting-edge science and social issues. Sponsored by the Academy, one of the U.S.'s oldest and most respected scientific institutions, eBriefings offer a compendium of what today's researchers in the U.S. and abroad are most concerned about.

With the 100th eBriefing, the Academy highlights yet another controversial topic: The Ethics of Mood Enhancement. Could mood-enhancing drugs be beneficial to people who are emotionally and physically healthy?
