Researchers at the University of Copenhagen are the first in the world to genetically engineer human cells to construct a detailed picture of the battle plan bacteria and viruses deploy when they make us ill. This discovery may lead to new therapies, eliminating the need for antibiotics. Bacteria and viruses have a sweet tooth! It’s...
Scientific report indicates that more research is needed into how general practitioners examine for and treat throat infections.

A population that built houses from tusks of the woolly mammoth and created exquisite tools has suddenly come to light. DNA from this population will also be included in a study of the genetic composition of brain diseases and mental disorders. ‘Well, hello! There you are,’ exclaimed researchers at the Lundbeck Foundation GeoGenetics Centre at...
A Danish-Italian team of scientists has demonstrated that passing even weak electrical currents through the brain can trigger unexpected reactions. All over the world, people with no medical background are experimenting with electrical brain stimulation: They are attaching electrodes to their head and hook it up to the direct current in the hopes of improving...
