Preventive measures to reduce the risk of decompression sickness include breathing oxygen and reducing decompression speed. Fol...

Research suggests new way to repair cartilage damage

UVa researchers describe method of protecting chromosomes during cell division

...wever, the cell is faced with a monumental sorting problem since all chromosomes look alike. So, nature has devised a solution microtubules from one side of the cell must bind one chromatid, while microtubules from the other side bind the other. The cell then uses these microtubule connections to pull the t...

Rb protein's role in retina development is key to understanding devastating eye cancer

...ypes of cells. One way the researchers solved the problem of embryos dying from lack of Rb was by taking advantage of the fact that the retina is still developing in newborn mice. The team used a virus to insert a gene for E1A--a protein that inactivates Rb--into newborn mice. The retinas in these newborn m...

Should publicly funded research be free and available to the public?

...am and since it is linked to circulation, that's a problem for us. We also have to cover all fields of science, not just biomedicine. The author-pays model is plausible there, since National Institutes of Health (NIH) or Howard Hughes grants can easily cover the charge. In less populated and well-supported f...
