Mechanical Forces Impact Immune Response in the Lungs

When the body is fending off an infection, there are changes in temperature, pH balance, and metabolism. Yale researchers wondered if yet...
DNA damage

Researchers Show How Age Can Damage DNA

As cells age, they accumulate signs of DNA damage. Breaks in both strands of the DNA molecule are especially toxic and have...

How Do Humans Survive Infections? Study Pinpoints the Role of a...

To overcome an infection, the immune system has to both kill the invading virus or bacterium, and tolerate the inflammation triggered by...
HIV-1 virus

Researchers Describe Building Blocks of HIV’s Protective Shell

The genome of the HIV-1 virus is protected by a conical-shaped protein shell called a capsid, which performs many functions crucial to...

Assessing the Strengths of Solar Thermal Desalination

The technology behind solar thermal desalination (STD) - ridding salt from water with help from the sun - has been around for...
Pulmonary embolism

Study Shows Surprising Trends for a Serious Lung Condition

Pulmonary embolism is a potentially life-threatening condition, in which blood clots migrate to arteries in the lungs, with the risk for increased...

Yale Scientists Zero in on Atomic Driver of Tumor Formation

Growing evidence suggests that certain types of bacteria are capable of causing colorectal cancers, indicating that a sub-set of these cancers could...
PTSD symptom

Yale Researchers Find Genetic Clues to Troubling PTSD Symptom

Symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) overlap with several other psychiatric disorders, but one specific symptom — repeated disturbing memories and flashbacks...
heart disease

Gene Plays Role in Early-Onset Heart Disease and Diabetes

When heart disease affects people under age 50, it’s considered “early onset” and experts believe there’s a genetic link. Yale investigators have...

Heart Cells’ Environment a Potentially Major Factor in Heart Disease

When it comes to heart disease, the health of the scaffold where cardiac cells grow may be a much bigger factor than...
chronic lung diseases

Building Lung Capacity, Lung-First

Pneumonia, aspiration, fluid in the lungs, and injuries from mechanical ventilators can severely damage the lungs of people who are critically ill....
Insulin

New Insight into the Biology of Insulin Release

In a new study, Yale researchers challenge a long-held assumption about how insulin-producing cells in the pancreas sense and respond to glucose....
