MCG scientists are exploring how improving the function of our older fat may just help our brains and lower Alzheimer’s risk.
Strengthening families is key to preventing kids from substance abuse, MCG researchers say.
MCG researchers determine which platform is best to rapidly measure how fast the blood is coagulating during surgery.
MCG scientists hope non-invasive and better tests that measure a gene variant commonly found in bladder cancer could help improve patient outcomes.
MCG scientists have discovered the chronic activation of the Adora2a receptor is one way obesity and insulin resistance break down one of the the brain's protections against...
Identifying a protein that plays a key role in cancer cell growth is a first step toward the development of a targeted cancer therapy.
To more accurately diagnose and treat multiple myeloma, scientists should look at the numbers in each arm of the Y-shaped cancer causing proteins differently, since one arm...
Graduates presented their projects on Graduate Research Day on April 1 and 2.
MCG scientists have found that high levels of a certain gene are correlated to better colorectal cancer survival rates. Next they hope to design a genetic panel that's predictive...
MCG scientists now know how the immune system rids the body of tumor cells, helping prevent cancer metastasis.
A synthetic peptide disrupts the destructive inflammation that occurs in nephritis, enabling the kidneys to better recover and maintain function.
Our bodies are continuously concocting specific antibodies to thwart invaders like a virus or even pollen, and scientists have new information about how the essential production...
Graduate student's Capstone Project exploring whether there is a connection between emergency room visits for mental health and daylight saving time is published.
Dr. Brian K. Stansfield, who is a 2004 MCG graduate, will lead the group through 2020 and will organize its annual meeting in New Orleans next year.
A close faculty mentor and more than two years of research experiments led one Augusta University student to a breakthrough.
Scientists report that mice whose neurons don’t make estrogen have impaired spatial reference memory as well as recognition memory and contextual fear memory.
It has long been known that African Americans die at higher rates from bladder cancer than do European Americans. New research looking at differences in the way tumor cells in...
Dr. Xin-Yun Lu and her team have found inactive SIRT1 in the prefrontal cortex. Activating it may help turn classic symptoms of depression around, particularly in males.
When a car crash or explosion results in an optic nerve injury, eliminating an enzyme known to promote inflammation appears to aid recovery, scientists report.
A powerful immune molecule helps protect transplanted organs from rejection by putting a silencer on two other immune molecules that converge to take a direct shot at the organ...
