Researchers engineered three-dimensional functional heart organoids resembling the developing heart. By exposing mouse embryonic stem cells to two key proteins during heart development, the researchers were able to form heart organoids with structural, functional, and molecular similarities to the embryonic heart during development. This method could be used to study […]
The slight decline in drug overdose deaths in 2018 coincides with Chinese regulations on the powerful opioid carfentanil, rather than the result of domestic U.S. efforts to curb the epidemic, a new analysis reveals. What many – including President Donald Trump – perceived as a decline in overdose deaths in […]

Free electron X-ray lasers deliver intense ultrashort pulses of x-rays, which can be used to image nanometer-scale objects in a single shot.
