Promoting Muscle Health Through Magnetized Molecules

Research team from the National University of Singapore uncovers molecule that promotes muscle health when magnetised.

Artificial Intelligence System to Study Animal Behaviour

Researchers from Osaka University developed an innovative camera system backed by artificial intelligence to boost research and observation of previously unreported behaviour of wild animals.

Molecular Process of Nerve Fibre Communication

Scientists from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Insitute of Science and Technology discover a deeper understanding to the molecular mechanisms in the regulation of the brain’s nerve fibres.

Discovering the Role of Non-Coding RNA in Cancer Development

Researchers from the Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore have shed light from their study on the role of long non-coding RNAs in the development of pancreatic cancer, bringing potential to new targets for precision medicine.

Helping Farmers Monitor Plant Health and Improve Crop Yield

Researchers from the Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision (DiSTAP) Interdisciplinary Research Group (IRG) of Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore and Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory (TLL) have discovered a way to use Raman spectroscopy for early detection of shade avoidance syndrome (SAS) in plants.

Managing Chronic Kidney Disease through Nutrition Guidance and Better Communication

Study conducted in Singapore finds that patients with chronic kidney disease need tailored nutrition guidance, as well as better communication with doctors and family support, to empower them to manage their condition.

Chemical Structure Explaining the Defect Detail of Quantum Emissions

International multidisciplinary collaboration led by the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), has uncovered the chemical structure behind defects in white graphene (hexagonal boron nitride, hBN), a two-dimensional nanomaterial that shows great promise as a platform for generating quantum light.

Using Machine Learning to Predict Anti-Cancer Drug Efficacy

Researchers from the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) develop machine learning algorithms for the programme to learn from datasets close to a real patients’ response to predict the efficacy of anti-cancer drugs.

Healthy Food Labels to Effectively Encourage Healthier Food Choices

Study by Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore discovered that Physical Activity Equivalent food labels could help consumers make healthier food purchases.

Protecting the Brain through Gut-Trained Immune Cells

In a study involving mice and human autopsy tissue, researchers at the National Institutes of Health and Cambridge University have shown that some of these immune cells are trained to fight infections in the brain by first spending time in the gut.

Teratoma Models Provide Opportunity to Study Human Development

Researchers from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) found that teratomas could be used as models to study human development.

Novel Therapeutic Approach to Treating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Researchers develop a new therapeutic approach against chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by preventing lung epithelial cell death and encouraging lung epithelial cell regeneration.

Identifying How the Brain Predicts the Consequences of Choice

In a study published in the scientific journal Neuron, scientists pin down a brain area crucial for this type of learning and demonstrate how its activity encodes multiple aspects of the decision-making process.
