  1. Teachers' turnover intentions, burnout and poor work climate are interlinked

    The risk of burnout and poor experienced teacher-working environment fit is increased among teachers with persistent turnover intentions. However, positive experiences in the workplace seem to protect against cynicism and exhaustion, according to a new study.
  2. New zika vaccine shows promise in animal models

    Researchers have developed a Zika vaccine technology that is highly effective and safe in preclinical mouse models.
  3. Study demonstrates that ticks weaken skin's immune response

    Hitherto, scientists have not fully understood why ticks are such dangerous disease vectors. A research team now shows that tick saliva inhibits the skin's defense function, thereby increasing the risk of diseases such as tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) or Lyme disease.
  4. Omega-3 fatty acids, and in particular DHA, are associated with increased attention scores in adolescents

    Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is associated with a greater capacity for selective and sustained attention in adolescents, while alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is associated with lower impulsivity, according to a new study. The results confirm the importance of having a diet that provides sufficient amounts of these polyunsaturated fatty acids for a healthy brain development.
  5. NJIT researchers unlock a new method for testing protein-based drugs

    New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) researchers have unveiled a new lab technique they say represents a 'paradigm shift' in how pharmaceutical laboratories test and produce new protein-based drugs, such as therapeutic monoclonal antibodies being developed to treat a variety of diseases, from cancers to infectious diseases.
  6. Fasting-mimicking diet reduces signs of dementia in mice

    Cycles of a diet that mimics fasting appear to reduce signs of Alzheimer's in mice genetically engineered to develop the illness, according to a new study. Short cycles of a low-calorie diet that replicates fasting appeared to reduce inflammation and delay cognitive decline in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease; initial data indicates diet's safety in Alzheimer's patients.
  7. New model of Alzheimer's as an autoimmune disease

    Scientists have proposed a new mechanistic model (AD2) for Alzheimer's, looking at it not as a brain disease, but as a chronic autoimmune condition that attacks the brain.
  8. New findings on the effects of COVID-19 on the colon

    Researchers have analyzed the manifestations of COVID-19 in the lungs and colon and pinpointed the differences at a molecular level. Their findings form the basis for the identification of novel biomarkers and the development of new treatment strategies.
  9. Coffee drinking is associated with increased longevity

    Drinking two to three cups of coffee a day is linked with a longer lifespan and lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared with avoiding coffee, according to new research. The findings applied to ground, instant and decaffeinated varieties.
  10. Study confirms that mRNA vaccines protect against serious COVID-19 during pregnancy

    The first large, real-world study of the effectiveness of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines during pregnancy found these vaccines, especially two initial doses followed by a booster, are effective in protecting against serious disease in expectant mothers whether the shots are administered before or during pregnancy.
