While air and noise pollution have been well documented independently, their combined effects are insufficiently discussed, until recently. In this blog post, we discuss a recent publication from Kuntic et al. on the combined and individual effects of these pollutants in mice.
This episode of Share Science features Dr. Martin Young, a professor of medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. In this interview he shares his journey into cardiac metabolism and chronobiology as well as some notable mentors that helped him along the way.
De la Paz et al. have developed an ingestible, self-powered, and wireless biosensing capsule that can hopefully be used for the noninvasive diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders in the future. Recently published in Nature Communications, the authors demonstrated how its real-time performance in a porcine model, which we summarize in this post.
Given the fact that type 1 diabetes can vary considerably between individuals, a precision medicine-based therapeutic approach could revolutionize clinical care. Earlier this year, Postigo-Fernandez et al. evaluated a precision medicine approach to DNA vaccination in a mouse model of type 1 diabetes, which we review in this blog post.
The Muscle Health Research Centre (MHRC) is one of Canada's leading innovators in muscle physiology research. In this blog post, we continue our series of interviews with student researchers at the MHRC and learn more about their research objectives, findings, and goals.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many of those living with diabetes were required to follow strict guidelines to protect themselves against infection as they were at high risk of morbidity and mortality. This blog takes a look at the links between angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) expression and diabetes, as well as incident diabetes and long COVID.
A review of current obesity treatments and their limitations, the need for animal models in obesity research, and emerging anti-obesity medications including incretin-based therapies, mitochondrial uncouplers, and various phytochemicals.
