Researchers at UC Irvine, Columbia University, and MIT have linked the mutation that causes Huntington’s disease to developmental deficits in the brain’s oligodendrocyte cells that are caused by changes in metabolism.
A study from UC San Diego, UCLA, UNC, UW, Columbia, and Northwestern finds that the accelerated biological aging of the body — epigenetic age acceleration specifically — is associated with less longevity, poorer mobility and mental function.
A tunable, atomically thin materials platform may help researchers figure out how to create a robust quantum condensate that can flow without dissipation of energy — potentially paving the way for ultra-efficient lossless electronic devices.
Estimates compiled by experts from UC Irvine and Columbia University show that global carbon dioxide emissions as of the end of September 2021 were just 0.9 percent lower than emissions at the same time in 2019.
A recent pair of studies from the University of Texas at Austin, New York University, and Columbia univeristy have found that the sons of women with obesity before and during pregnancy had lower developmental and IQ scores in early and middle childhood.
