Progress in probing the mosquito's sense of smell

...the chemical compounds found in human sweat. "This validates our hypothesis that the olfactory system of mosquitoes--and other insects--consists of an array of different receptors, each of which responds to a very narrow range of odorants," says Laurence J. Zwiebel, associate professor of biological sciences a...

"Each is cleaned to specifications equivalent to a class 1000 clean room," says Felton, "and the product does not outgas...

Treating precancerous breast cells may prevent onset of cancer

...tion is a critical step for cancer progression and validates the use of in vitro models. More than 203,500 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed and more than 39,600 women will die in 2002, according to the American Cancer Society. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-death in women....

Seneca, university vice president for academic affairs. "These funds will support research and student training whi...

The next generation of scientists recognized at Johns Hopkins

...f Medicine. But while publication in such journals validates the efforts of a budding scientist or research physician, recognition within Hopkins -- not to mention the award checks -- can be an important boost for young investigators. "Having my work accepted for publication is a great feeling, but receiving...

Gene that prevents tumor growth also carries messages from circadian clock

...ent in humans, which is the Ras/Mapk pathway. This validates the fly as the model to study this illness, said Amita Sehgal, PhD, who directed the study. You can think of it like an electric circuit, Sehgal said. We have the clock. Now we have identified another part of the circuitry. Weve identified a prot...

New pathway to understanding circadian rhythms

...he neurofibromatosis research community is that it validates the fly model," she said. "One of their concerns about the fly model was that the signaling pathway seemed to be different than in humans because it involved PKA rather than MAP kinase. However, we have found that for circadian rhythm effects, the si...

Fly genetics point to potential cancer-causing gene

"Despite the perception in both the scientific community and the lay public that the only cause of obesity is either appetite or lack of exercise, this new study provides us with more inf...

New HIV model

...Ph.D., of Vanderbilt University, Kirschner's model validates the homing theory of HIV progression, which was first proposed by Cloyd and his colleagues. Results from the model were published in the August 1 issue of The Journal of AIDS. Many scientists believe HIV destroys the immune system by attacking whi...
