Tiny ‘cages' to keep vaccine supplies safe
Tiny ‘cages’ to keep vaccine supplies safe
Vaccines and antibodies could be transported and stored without refrigeration by capturing them in tiny silica ‘cages', a discovery which could make getting vital medicines to remote or dangerous places much easier, cheaper and safer. Vaccines and many other medicines contain proteins which break down and become unusable at room temperatures, meaning they must be kept refrigerated for storage and transportation in a so-called ‘cold chain'.

Saving leopards from human threats
Saving leopards from human threats
Leopard populations in part of South Africa are decreasing in greater numbers and at a greater speed than expected, due in large part to illegal killing by humans according to new findings. A research team led by Dr Samual Williams , an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Anthropology , conducted a long-term study of the leopard population in the Soutpansberg Mountains in South Africa and found that leopard density (the number of leopards per 100 km 2 ) had decreased by 44% between 2012 and 2016 and by 66% since 2008.
