New way to detect heart damage caused by chemotherapy
The high-tech scanning techniques were enabled by funding from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) , and could reveal whether chemotherapy is damaging a person's heart before any symptoms appear. Doxorubicin is a commonly used type of chemotherapy drug which slows or stops the growth of cancer cells by blocking an enzyme which cancer cells need to divide and grow.

Dino-killing asteroid sped up bird evolution
Dino-killing asteroid sped up bird evolution
Human activities could change the pace of evolution, similar to what occurred 66 million years ago when a giant asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs, leaving modern birds as their only descendants. That's one conclusion drawn by the authors of a new study just published in† Systematic Biology. Dr Daniel Field from the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath and Cornell PhD candidate Jacob Berv†suggest that the meteor-induced mass extinction (a.k.a.

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.

Beautiful simplicity underlying branching patterns in tissue
In the centenary year of the publication of a seminal treatise on the physical and mathematical principles underpinning nature - On Growth and Form †by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson - a Cambridge physicist has led a study describing an elegantly simple solution to a puzzle that has taxed biologists for centuries: how complex branching patterns of tissues arise.

Sexually aroused male flies unable to sleep after close encounters with females
The urge to mate appears to override the need to sleep in flies, according to new research that hints at the importance of sleep for animals. The result suggests that there are some situations where flies and other animals can eliminate the drive to sleep entirely, rather than put it off until later.

The study indicates that increasing the number of years that people spend in the education system may lower their risk of developing coronary heart disease Staying in education is associated with a lower risk of developing heart disease, finds a study published by The British Medical Journal. The findings provide the strongest evidence to date that increasing the number of years that people spend in the education system may lower their risk of developing coronary heart disease by a substantial amount, say the authors.

Defects in next-generation solar cells can be healed with light
Researchers have shown that defects in the molecular structure of perovskites - a material which could revolutionise the solar cell industry - can be "healed" by exposing it to light and just the right amount of humidity.† We want to know the origins of the defects so that we can eliminate them and make perovskites more efficient.

Leaf size shrinks with latitude to avoid cold snaps
Leaf size shrinks with latitude to avoid cold snaps
New research overturns the idea that keeping cool controls leaf size with latitude, instead finding that resisting frost damage is the main driver. From the large leaves of the tropical rainforests to the needles of trees in the far north, global leaf size varies a lot with location. The most surprising result was that over much of the world the maximum size of leaves is set not by the risk of overheating, but rather by the risk of damaging frost at night.

Fishing for DNA during breeding season could help control invasive species
Research reveals that an invasive crayfish species is easier to detect in water samples during breeding, which could lead to better control. An invasive species is any animal or plant that is introduced to an area and has the capacity to cause harm. They can impact native wildlife by outcompeting them for food and damaging local environments, for example grey squirrels outcompeting reds.

Ray of hope for more abundant wheat crops
Crops such as wheat could be up to 21% more efficient at turning the sun's energy into food, according to new research by Lancaster University. The food chain relies on plants using sunlight to turn carbon dioxide from the air into food. This process, known as photosynthesis, is essential for plants to grow, including crops like wheat.
