A new clinical trial from a team at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center uses innovative basic science research methods to offer hope and a new treatment to glioblastoma patients. A collaborative team of Rogel physicians, led by Daniel Wahl, M.D., Ph.D., hopes that grounding their trial in rigorous and innovative biology from the very beginning will help this approach succeed where so many other potential glioblastoma treatments have failed.
Research by NYU School of Global Public Health's Jonathan Purtle says that earmarking state taxes on recreational sales is an underused strategy for financing mobile psychiatric crisis units, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and more.

An NYU psychology professor outlines how getting smarter about groups can bring us together.
Psychology professor Tessa West offers a game plan for interacting more productively with fellow employees—and for spotting our own misbehaviors—in a shifting workplace.
Geochemistry was established as one of the central pillars of the geosciences by Victor Moritz Goldschmidt in Göttingen. It describes the formation and evolution of our planet, as well as the mass transport processes within the Earth systems. Applications of geochemistry include resource and environmental research. Large data sets are playing an increasingly important role in solving scientific questions in geochemistry. Now the University of Göttingen has inherited GEOROC, the largest geochemical database for rocks and minerals from the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (Mainz). The database has been revised and modernised in its structure and made available to its global users in a new form.
Update on a DOE-funded Argonne database tracking Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) projects for transportation, which are rapidly increasing. Projects involve landfills, dairy/agriculture, waste-water and food processing.
While commercials and other advertisements are often the target of widespread social critique or even outright disdain, one Texas A&M University expert says advertising still serves an important purpose in our world — in fact, it might even make us happier.
