NASA's SpaceX CRS-29 launched on November 9th, a commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station (ISS) that was also carrying scientific experiments and technology demonstrations. Included amongst these was the Rodent Research-20 (RR-20) payload, the contents of which will be studied by Brock University's Dr. Val Fajardo and his team using Aurora Scientific equipment upon its return.
Semaglutide, also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, has become increasingly popular -- but why? Here we discuss the mechanism behind these drugs, how they've become so well known, and what current research says about their long-term effects.
Discover the future of human cognition with our overview of recent developments in brain-computer interface technology. Read this blog to find out how brain-computer interfaces function, ways they can be utilized, and how a few individuals have personally advanced this burgeoning neuroscientific field.
A recent publication from Singh et al. demonstrate how taurine, an amino acid used widely throughout the body, can improve age-related health outcomes in mice, roundworms, non-human primates, and also highlight how this effect appears to be evolutionarily conserved in humans.
This episode of Share Science features Michelle Wong, a recipient of one of the $5000 Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Scholarships. In this interview, we discuss her current research, her experience growing up nearly blind, and how an experimental technology helped her regain her vision.
While the overall benefits of exercise have been well documented, what exactly does exercise do for the brain? In this blog, we review two very recent publications that arrived at somewhat conflicting answers to this question.
This episode of Share Science features Oliver Wearing, PhD, as he shares his personal passions and academic journey from reptilian physiology to evaluating cardiovascular function after spinal cord injury.
What can biological age tell us about our health? Is it a fixed number, or can it be reduced? A recent study from Poganik et al. investigates the fluctuations in biological age in response to physiological stress.
In a recent interview with IonOptix Business Development Manager, Joe Soughayer, he talks about their innovative approach, commitment to supporting researchers, and goals of becoming the gold standard in cardiovascular research instruments.
Clarisa Peer discusses ALZET Osmotic Pumps, the gold standard for controlled, automatic dosing of compounds in various research areas, including neuroscience, cancer research, cardiovascular, endocrinology, pharmacology research, and more.
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a condition that arises from repeated head traumas, and can only be diagnosed after death. Learn more about the history behind this condition, current research, and potential ways to prevent CTE in this blog post, written by one of the Scientist.com STEM NIL Scholarship Winners.
Chris Rand discusses Aurora Scientific's 801C: Small Intact Muscle Apparatus. The device can be used for measuring muscle contractility and for other applications in fields like muscle physiology and cardiovascular science research.
Chemotherapy treatment is incredibly difficult on patient wellbeing, but an unlikely plant-derived substance may yet improve the adverse side effects. In this blog, we discuss the use of CBD as a treatment for side effects like organ damage and drug resistance in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.
InsideScientific recently interviewed Jose Gadea, VP of Sales and Marketing from Unified Information Devices, where he explained the company's approach to innovation and highlighted their RFID-enabled, Mouse Matrix system.
This episode of Share Science features Tanishq Vaidya, a recipient of one of the $5000 Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Scholarships. In this interview, we discuss some of his pre-med challenges, and where he hopes to take his career as a physician-researcher.
Joe Soughayer, Business Development Manager at IonOptix, discusses the Cardiac Slice System, a complete data acquisition and analysis system for calcium, force, and mechanical work in cardiac slices that is enabling groundbreaking strides in physiological research.
InsideScientific recently interviewed Matt Borkowski, General Manager of Aurora Scientific, where he discussed his new role, the company's approach to innovation, and commitment to providing customer support through educational resources.
While the immune response to a single cardiac event has been well researched, few have reported on whether an adaptive immunity is observed after repeated cardiac injury. Here, we discuss a recent publication from Tiwary et al., in which they investigate the cytoprotective response after multiple cardiomyopathic injuries.
This episode of Share Science features Ellie Siebeneck, a recipient of one of the $5000 Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Scholarships. In this interview, we discuss some of her current research projects, and her love of mentoring up-and-coming researchers.
This episode of Share Science features Micaela Merrill, a recipient of one of the $5000 Scientist.com STEM Research NIL Scholarships. In this interview, we discuss some of her biggest inspirations, and where she hopes to take her research after graduation.
Early life trauma (ELT) has been identified as a risk factor for binge eating and obesity in adult life, but the neural mechanisms behind this phenomena have yet to be determined. In this blog post we discuss a recent publication from Shin et al., which delineates the circuitry of this ELT-induced maladaptive eating.
