Prostate gland enlargement can cause uncomfortable urinary symptoms for men. And, as they age, their risk increases. Approximately 30% of men experience symptoms by age 60 and 50% of men by the time they are 80.
Designed to detect the oldest light in the universe, the South Pole Telescope is helping researchers at Argonne and around the world to learn about the beginnings of the universe.
Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) have developed a design framework to build next-generation analog computing chipsets that could be faster and require less power than the digital chips found in most electronic devices.
Cleveland Clinic has successfully performed a first-in-the-world full multi-organ transplant to treat a patient with a rare form of appendix cancer called pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP). Upon completion of the lifesaving transplant surgery, the patient received five digestive organs. Anil Vaidya, M.D., Cleveland Clinic’s Intestinal Transplant Program co-director, led the seven-surgeon team that completed the pioneering operation on a 32-year-old man in September 2021.
New organomineral fertilizers are based on magnesium, sulfur, silicon, calcium and poultry manure. They can be used both as for growing plants as for soil regeneration. It is assumed that fertilizers should not harm the soil and plants.
The University of Cincinnati is making a significant commitment of funds and resources to establish the latest innovation in microscopy as the focal point of the Center for Advanced Structural Biology (CASB) in the College of Medicine. The project will be built out in three phases over the next five years.
I am a researcher studying the breeding behavior of the Eastern whip-poor-will (Antrostomus vociferus), a cryptic bird that is primarily active after sunset as it forages on the wing for moths. So – for the summer, at least – I also am nocturnal.
The first-ever simulation of aluminum conductivity offers a recipe for an inexpensive, lightweight alternative to copper.

Studying evolution by focusing solely on fossils would leave many questions unanswered, but evolutionary developmental biology (otherwise known as “evo-devo”) helps fill in the gaps. Evo-devo scientists investigate how animal embryos develop, which allows them to make inferences about evolutionary change. J. Andrew Gillis of University of Cambridge and Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole), whose lab published two new papers this week on the evolution of the jaw, explains the evo-devo approach.
