For decades, researchers have suggested a link between oral health and inflammatory diseases affecting the entire body — in particular, heart attacks and strokes. Inflammation is intimately involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and is accurately measured by high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), a sensitive marker for future risks of heart attacks and strokes.
From February 03 – 15, The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) hosted the fifth advanced Neuroimaging Course. The laboratory-oriented program gives pre-doctoral students, postdoctoral students, and early-career intense and comprehensive training on the principles of modern imaging and the cutting-edge applications used to study the brain.
JUPITER, FL — Scientists at Scripps Research have shed new light on a genetic mutation that is clearly linked with autism spectrum disorders; in so doing they have highlighted a potential pathway for early treatment.
Five biology students with a keen interest in veterinary medicine explored potential careers during the North American Veterinary Community’s Meeting & Expo in Orlando last month.
