To build better vaccines, scientists want to know more about how our bodies make adequate numbers of effective, durable antibodies against the influenza virus.
Congratulations to School of Computer and Cyber Sciences faculty members Dr. Gagan Agrawal and Dr. Michael Nowatkowski in their new leadership appointments.
A key way radiation therapy and chemotherapy work is by making highly lethal double-strand breaks in the DNA of cancer cells.
How well women with cervical cancer respond to treatment and survive correlates with the level of 10 proteins in their blood that also are associated with a “zombie” cell state called senescence, Medical College of Georgia scientists report.
In the hours and days after a traumatic brain injury, inflammation inside the brain can accelerate to the point that more damage occurs, says a scientist working to better understand whether interventions like cannabinoids can improve patient...
Augusta University is celebrating excellence on Wednesday, Nov. 11 during the third annual Values Week. One student who embodies excellence in the AU community is Henry Claussen, an Augusta native and PhD student in the biostatistics program.
High doses of vitamin C under study for treating COVID-19 may benefit some populations, but investigators exploring its potential in aging say key factors in effectiveness include levels of the natural transporter needed to get the vitamin inside...
When The Dental College of Georgia first started 3D printing nasal swabs to use in COVID-19 testing, it was making enough for the Augusta area. Now, that same design is helping Army personnel across the nation.
A young cancer epidemiologist who has already helped identify hotspots for geographic, racial and ethnic disparities in breast cancer mortality in the United States is now looking at mammography screening rates in those hotspots.
Augusta University's Master of Arts in Intelligence and Security Studies is proud to launch an “Intelligence and National Security Virtual Forum” this week as part of a new speaker series for the graduate program.
One way CBD appears to reduce the “cytokine storm” that damages the lungs and kills many patients with COVID-19 is by enabling an increase in levels of a natural peptide called apelin.
Dr. Guangyu Wu is dissecting the molecular homing that enables a nascent protein to ultimately find its way to the surface of a cell as a mature receptor type that helps us taste, smell and even regulate our mood and immunity.
A “danger molecule” is higher in the blood of younger black adults than whites, females than males and increases with weight and age, researchers report.
As political pundits are describing the 2020 election as one of the most pivotal elections in decades, Dr. Kathleen Hale, a professor of political science at Auburn University, will hold a discussion with faculty and students at Augusta University...
A new study looks at just how much the stress of financial hardship caused by cancer care and treatment can affect a patient’s emotional, mental and physical well-being.
The Pediatric Comprehensive Sickle Cell Program at the Medical College of Georgia is opening a new Telehealth Center to better serve pediatric patients across Georgia.
The Augusta University Faculty Club has awarded five $2,000 scholarships to students from each of the university’s health sciences colleges.
It’s called senescence, when stressed cells can no longer divide to make new cells, and it’s considered a factor in aging and in some diseases. Now scientists have some of the first evidence that at a younger age at least, senescent cells show up...
University alumna promoted to new post in Facilities.
The kidneys often become bulky and dysfunctional in diabetes, and now scientists have found that one path to this damage dramatically reduces the kidney’s ability to clean up after itself.
