A team of University researchers is exploring the possibility that stem cells on the outer edges of the cornea, given the right stimulation, can replace damaged cells. The work raises the possibility of restoring vision without the need for cornea transplants.
By the time the United States formally entered World War II, Brian O’Brien and his colleagues at the Institute of Optics had “essentially initiated the whole science of night warfare.”
A new study by vision scientists finds that children with poor vision see vast and lasting improvement in their peripheral vision after only eight hours of playing kid-friendly video games.
Daniel Weix, associate professor of chemistry, has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society.
Physicians at the Medical Center have developed a new way to fabricate artificial organs and human anatomy that mimics the real thing, even up to the point of bleeding when cut.
Challenging a long-held convention, University researchers have shown they can inhibit the influenza A virus by targeting its genomic RNA with “antisense” compounds.
In the the first scientific study to address e-cigarettes and their effect on oral health at the cellular level, Medical Center research suggests that electronic cigarettes are as equally damaging to gums and teeth as conventional cigarettes.
