  • Cancer Close-Up: Single-Cell Approach Provides Detailed Look Inside Tumors

    Members of the Klarman Cell Observatory at the Broad Institute and the Joint Center for Cancer Precision Medicine (CCPM) at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Broad have embarked on an effort to use single-cell genome analysis to explore the diverse cellular environments of cancer tumors in finer detail than ever before. In this video, researchers involved in a pilot study that looked at melanoma – the most deadly form of skin cancer -- describe their methods, their findings, and their hopes for how their approach might inform patient care in the years to come.

  • Does Homeopathy Work?

    The use of homeopathic remedies have gone on for nearly 200 years, but so has the progress of science. And that progress has shown us that the foundations of homeopathy are bunk.

  • The Brain Dictionary

    Where exactly are the words in your head? Scientists have created an interactive map showing which brain areas respond to hearing different words.

  • DNA: Past to Present

    GEN celebrates DNA Day with a video retelling of the still-unfolding DNA story, from early structural revelations, to innovative technologies, to life-altering applications.

  • Better Coffee through Chemistry

    Science can help you get the perfect cup of coffee. Not all coffee is the same. How you brew it, as well as the water and the beans you use, can determine your perfect cup.

  • 3D Printing an Artificial Kidney

    Vanderbilt University Medical Center researchers have bioprinted an implantable artificial kidney, with microchip filters and living kidney cells that will be powered by a patient’s own heart.

  • Genetic Test Aims to Improve Diabetes Diagnosis

    An inexpensive, fast, genetic test could help doctors more easily distinguish between type 1 and type 2 diabetes when diagnosing patients.

  • Why Are People Allergic to Peanuts?

    Eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could be potentially fatal for 1 to 2 percent of the global population. What makes peanut allergies so lethal, and why is the number of peanut-allergy sufferers on the rise?

  • Earlier Neanderthal Presence in Europe

    An analysis of ancient DNA suggests Neanderthals were living in northern Spain around 430,000 years ago. The finding pushes the previous assumptions of Neanderthal presence in Europe by at least 30,000 years.

  • How Bacteria Make a Grappling Hook for Propulsion

    Many bacteria, including important pathogens, move by projecting grappling-hook-like extensions called type IV pili from their cell bodies. After these pili attach to other cells or objects in their environment, the bacteria retract the pili to pull themselves forward.
