The Scripps Research Institute Solved the 175-year-old Medical Mystery of Anesthesia’s Effects

Nearly 175 years ago, ether was first demonstrated in what came to be called Mass Gen’s “Ether Dome.” Ever since, no one has been able to explain how general anesthetics actually render us unconscious. Until now. This wonderful study was conducted as a collaboration between the founder of Scripps Florida, former Scripps Research President Richard Lerner, MD, and an associate professor on that same campus, Scott Hansen, PhD.

‘With This Ring,’ Scientists Hope to Predict COVID-19

A team of scientists from Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine is implementing a three-pronged approach to predict coronavirus disease (COVID-19) infection in healthcare workers on the frontline of the pandemic. They recently launched a study designed to identify patterns of onset, detection, progression, and recovery from COVID-19 by observing body temperature, heart rate, breathing rate and related measures, as well as illness symptoms such as fever, cough, and fatigue. Ultimately, the researchers hope to better identify patterns that could predict the emergence and recovery from novel infections and thereby prevent and contain future pandemics.
