Essential Science: Space agencies are looking at space microbes

Moscow - Wherever you find people you find microorganisms and life onboard the International Space Station is no exception. Do these organism behave differently and do any differences pose a threat to astronauts?

Is it time for a global vaccine compensation scheme?

With a new vaccine for Zika virus in development and a rise with the administration of vaccine in general, is it time to consider a global vaccine compensation scheme? This is in the event of an adverse response.

Probing insight into antimicrobial resistant fungus

A major systematic review of the pathogenic fungus Candida auris has been conducted. This yeast-like fungus has been found in hospitals and it is resistant to several classes of antimicrobial drugs. This poses serious risks for those infected.

Devastating elephantiasis disease facing elimination

Warwick - The disabling parasitic disease which causes elephantiasis, and threatens around one billion people globally – Lymphatic filariasis - is close to elimination due to new research from the University of Warwick.

Stretchy optical fibers used to assess for signs of diseases

A special type of optical fiber, made from a hydrogel, has been developed. This rubber-like device can detect diseases early and send an alert signal.
