( Medical University of South Carolina) Treating multiple myeloma (MM) with myxoma virus (MYXV) eliminated a majority of malignant cells in preclinical studies, report investigators at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and elsewhere in an article published online on Dec. 7, 2016 by Molecular Therapy -- Oncolytics. Furthermore, introduction of MYXV had no impact on the bone marrow compartment and elicited a strong immune response that eradicated disease in some animals.
( University of Rochester) University of Rochester computer scientists were able to shed light on how Trump won the presidential election by using data science to track the millions of Twitter followers who liked or 'unliked' the candidates throughout the campaign.
( Georgia Institute of Technology) There is a direct link between a person's attitude on social media and the likelihood that their dieting efforts will succeed.In fact, Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have determined that dieting success -- or failure -- can be predicted with an accuracy rate of 77 percent based on the sentiment of the words and phrases one uses on Twitter.
( University of California - Irvine) Global climate change is being felt in many coastal communities of the United States, not always in the form of big weather disasters but as a steady drip, drip, drip of nuisance flooding.

( Stanford University) A new organic artificial synapse made by Stanford researchers could support computers that better recreate the way the human brain processes information. It could also lead to improvements in brain-machine technologies.
( University of Pennsylvania) Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and The Wistar Institute have now found that physical forces exerted between cancer cells and the ECM are enough to drive a shape change necessary for metastasis. Those forces converge on an optimal stiffness that allows cancer cells to spread.
