The discovery of a new mechanism involved in depression — and a way to target it with a drug as effective as classical antidepressants — provides new understanding of this illness and could pave the way for treatments with fewer side effects.
New research at the University of California, San Francisco, or UCSF, has discovered a molecular key to the ketogenic diet's apparent effects on patients with epilepsy and other neurological illnesses.
Scientists at Hokkaido University have revealed temperature-dependent energy-state conversion of molecular hydrogen on ice surfaces, suggesting the need for a reconsideration of molecular evolution theory.
When a solid material is immersed in a liquid, the liquid immediately next to its surface differs from that of the bulk liquid at the molecular level. This interfacial layer is critical to our understanding of a diverse set of phenomena from biology to materials science.
The 4th International Symposium on Molecular Technology (Biotechnology in Progress), with focus on drug development and therapeutics, will be held at Tehran’s Shahid Beheshti Medical University from October 14-16.
