Computational model helps with diabetes drug design
Researchers can use the model to predict how engineered forms of insulin would perform in human patients, making it easier to bring these drugs to clinical trials. For diabetes patients who must give themselves frequent insulin injections, the risk of low blood sugar can be life-threatening. A potential solution is a type of engineered insulin that circulates in the body and springs into action only when needed.

Health burden of air pollution differs across racial groups
Air pollution has decreased across the U.S., but new research finds health burdens remain unequal among racial groups. Health benefits that have resulted from reductions in fine particulate air pollution aren-t distributed equally among populations in the U.S., a new Yale-led study finds. Racial and ethnic minorities - and Black people in particular - still experience disproportionately high rates of cardiovascular disease-related deaths caused by exposure to fine particulate matter, according to the research.
