Copying nature’s lock-and-key system could improve rapid medical diagnostics
Researchers have designed a system that rapidly recognises the specific biological molecules that can indicate disease. The team from Imperial College London have developed a nanoscale sensor that can selectively detect protein molecules at the single-molecule level, which could help in early stage clinical diagnosis.

Virtual brain lab brings together world-leading neuroscientists
Virtual brain lab brings together world-leading neuroscientists
Twenty one leading neuroscience groups from around the world, including seven from UCL, have formed a 'virtual brain lab' to test how the brain controls learning and decision making. The 10 million International Brain Lab brings together groups from UK, USA, France, Switzerland and Portugal to uncover how complex networks of brain cells support our ability to learn and make decisions. This new initiative, jointly funded by the Simons Foundation and Wellcome, involves seven research groups from across multiple UCL Faculties.

Links between deprivation and risk of violence-related injury
Adolescent girls from deprived areas are at greater risk of interpersonal violence than girls from more affluent areas because they feel distrusted by their parents, suggests a study by Cardiff University. Lead author of the study and Director of the Violence Research Group at Cardiff University, Professor Jonathan Shepherd, said: “We discovered that deprivation makes adolescent girls six times more likely to suffer violence-related injury than girls in affluent areas.

Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
Budget cigarettes linked to higher infant mortality rates in EU countries
A study of 23 EU countries found that larger price differences between high and low priced cigarettes are associated with higher infant mortality. Scientists already know that high cigarette prices reduce smoking rates , and that levels of smoking affect infant mortality. However until now, there have been no studies to explore the link between cigarette price differentials and infant mortality.

Step towards better ’beyond lithium’ batteries
A step towards new "beyond lithium" rechargeable batteries with superior performance has been made by researchers at the University of Bath. We increasingly rely on rechargeable batteries for a host of essential uses; from mobile phones and electric cars to electrical grid storage. At present this demand is taken up by lithium-ion batteries.

Research creates new possibilities to design new materials with strange and exotic properties
The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics celebrated the rich behaviour of two-dimensional (2D) materials, like atoms, molecules, or electrons that are confined to move on a flat surface. Compared to their three dimensional (3D) counterparts, such materials exhibit new and exotic properties, the elucidation of which is at the cutting edge of condensed matter physics research.

Cuts to mental health services putting young people at risk, say experts
Funding cuts and austerity measures are damaging young people's access to mental health services, with potentially long-term consequences for their mental wellbeing, say researchers at the University of Cambridge. We need to acknowledge the mental health suffering in our young people that has only been increasingly apparent in recent years, and resolve to improve young people's access to effective mental health services.

A rare discovery will shed new light on Mycenaean funerary practices
The discovery this summer of an impressive rock-cut tomb on a mountainside in Prosilio, near ancient Orchomenos in central Greece, will shed new light on Mycenaean funerary practices. Finding an intact burial, let alone in a monumental tomb of the palatial period, 1370-1200 BC, makes our discovery all the more special.

Pox populi: Study calculates 18th century syphilis rates for first time
The unlikely coincidence of a local hospital record and a census led by a pioneering physician has enabled the first study charting rates of venereal disease in 18th century England, revealing high infection levels in the city of Chester at this time. "Because we haven't been able to study the impact of STIs, much of the history of British population change has been written as if there wasn't any." Simon Szreter A new study has, for the first time, provided statistical information about the likely rate of venereal disease in a community in 18th century urban England.
