Global burden of emergency diseases and conditions: Method to measure the impact of conditions requiring emergency care around the world

In 2015, about half of the world’s 28 million human deaths were the result of medical emergencies, with the bulk of the burden borne by poorer nations, according to a statistical analysis of information from

Glowing tumors show scientists where cancer drugs are working: The glow could someday help us use cancer drugs more efficiently

Experimenting with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers report they have successfully used positron emission tomography (PET) scans to calculate in real time how much of an immunotherapy drug reaches a tumor and what parts of a

New computational tool harnesses big data, deep learning to reveal dark matter of the transcriptome: Researchers create a new tool for scientists to advance disease diagnosis and treatment

A research team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has developed an innovative computational tool offering researchers an efficient method for detecting the different ways RNA is pieced together (spliced) when copied from DNA. Because

Smarter automatic defibrillator

Thousands of patients with congestive heart failure benefit from automatic implantable cardiac defibrillators (AICDs) that deliver shocks to the heart to correct abnormal heart rhythms. These defibrillators improve survival in patients who are at risk

New cell subtypes classified in mouse brain

It’s been estimated that the human brain contains roughly 100 billion neurons, together completing countless tasks through countless connections. So how do we make sense of the roles each of these neurons play? As part
