Results of clinical trials are only as good as the data upon which they rest. This is especially true in terms of diversity - if most people in a trial are from a certain race or socioeconomic group, then the results may not be broadly applicable.

Study: ROS signaling-induced mitochondrial Sgk1 expression regulates epithelial cell renewal. Researchers have long thought that once a cell starts down its path of differentiation, growing into a skin cell or a liver cell or a neuron, that path could not be changed.

Machine learning helps scientists see how the brain adapts to different environments.

A new tool in the fight against superbugs goes beyond protein folding simulations like AlphaFold, potentially revealing antibiotic candidates. Identifying whether and how a nanoparticle and protein will bind with one another is an important step toward being able to design antibiotics and antivirals on demand, and a computer model developed at the University of Michigan can do it.
