Scientists at MCG are looking at how neural activity drives blood flow increases and how important the increases are for the health and proper functioning of neurons. Benefits of better understanding could include better interpreting results of...
Focusing on strengthening our muscles rather than losing fat may be a better way to protect ourselves from weight-related hazards like diabetes and cardiovascular disease, investigators say.
While regular exercise is clearly beneficial to children — and adults — the psychosocial health of children may benefit as much from other kinds of adult-led after-school programs, Medical College of Georgia researchers report in the journal...
MCG scientists looking at body's natural checkpoint, the enzyme CD73, and how it may convert the cell fuel that normally promotes our immune system to attack head and neck cancer cells into something that instead inhibits that attack.
It's a progressive eye disease that's plagued NBA superstar Steph Curry. Now scientists at MCG have a $2.1 million grant to learn more about keatoconus' causes and identify points to better diagnose, treat and maybe even prevent it.
MCG investigators working on associating a protein profile in the eye's fluid with obvious structural damage to the eye glaucoma causes. They think that may lead to early detection and new treatment targets for the leading cause of blindness...
Electroconvulsive therapy isn't used often because of side effects like memory loss and poorer cognition. MCG scientists have found that using lower amplitude may negate those effects while still effectively treating major depression and suicidal...
MCG scientists are exploring how improving the function of our older fat may just help our brains and lower Alzheimer’s risk.
The interdisciplinary Southern Section of the AFMR, which includes 13 states, Puerto Rico, the West Indies and Central and South America, works to promote research and foster mentorship of junior faculty and residents to ensure the future of medical...
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.
A nationally and internationally known cardiologist has been named chair of MCG's largest department.
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 memory loss and confusion.
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 naturally has more, with and without cancer.
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 gets fired up and keeps up.
Scientists report that mice whose neurons don’t make estrogen have impaired spatial reference memory as well as recognition memory and contextual fear memory.
Dr. Terence O’Keeffe has been named chief of the Section of Trauma/Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery in the MCG Department of Surgery.
