Although it has long been assumed that women are born with all the eggs they will ever have in a lifetime, recent research has hinted that that might not be the case. Now researchers report the strongest evidence yet that women may be able to replenish their supply of eggs after they are born — and perhaps after age or disease might have normally hindered their fertility.

The Plain Dealer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Doctors have known for decades you're more likely to die suddenly from a heart arrhythmia in the morning than another time of day. After years of research, no one was able to determine why. A Case Western cardiovascular research scientist has identified a protein that seems to unlock the mystery — it controls susceptibility to arrhythmia and sudden death in mice, and its level in the body varies based on the time of day.

IBM photographs electric charge in single molecule
Popular Science    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
IBM researchers have used a new technique called Kelvin probe force microscopy, a different version of the more familiar atomic force microscopy that already gave the first pictures of a molecule. When it hovers over the molecular sample, the tip of the probe creates an electric field, which can be measured. The researchers determined the electrical charges of the molecule by looking at changes in the electric field. More

A miniature device with a big impact
PhysOrg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ten milliliters of blood may not seem like a lot, and coming from healthy individuals it isn't. But for critically ill patients with diminished resources, 10 milliliters could be crucial. Nonetheless, that's what's currently required to test for circulating tumor cells in late-stage cancer. A recently completed graduate thesis from Northeastern's Department of Chemical Engineering developed an alternative testing method. More
