Understanding Radiotherapy at Mt. Sinai

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Dec 14, 2015

Fighting cancer is a battle that milions of people have had to, or are currently, waging. When surgeons are unable to remove cancerous tumors, radiation treatment (radiotherapy) is used to destroy the tumors. However, many times, radiation treatments fail to destroy the entirety of the tumor, leaving cancerous cells in the body. Researchers at the Ichan School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in New York have discovered why radiotherapy is not always successful.

NY Scientists Awarded $3.1M for HIV Vaccine Research

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Nov 10, 2015

Since its emergence in the 1980's, HIV/AIDS has been a prominent point of research for life scientists around the world. With no current cure or vaccine available, scientists receive substantial amounts of funding to study this virus to gain a better understanding of it as well as to produce a vaccine that will combat the virus better than current treatments do, which can only slow and control the virus, but not cure it.

Fighting the Flu at Rockefeller U.

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Sep 22, 2015

The flu is something that everyone experiences at some time. Even after receiving an annual flu shot, many people still fall ill due to a different strain of the flu that the shot does not protect against. Generally, the flu shot protects against three common strains of influenza, leaving people still vulnerable to getting the flu. Researchers at Rockefeller University have developed a new method of creating the flu vaccine that could potentially work against many more strains of influenza.

Stony Brook Researchers Discover New Potential Antifungal Drugs

Posted by Laura Braden on Mon, Aug 10, 2015

Getting a fungal infection is a part of life, that everyone experiences at one time or another. These types of infections range in seriousness, from athlete's foot to ringworm to histoplasmosis. Although commonly fatal, more than 1.3 million people contract fatal fungal infections each year. Currently, there are three known antifungal drugs available to fight these infections, though they are not always the most effective. (Image courtesy of L. Shyamal via Wikimedia Commons)
