Breakthrough Listen, a $100 million project to find signs of alien life in the Universe, announced that it detected 15 powerful, repeating radio pulses coming from a galaxy three billion light years away.
Researchers at the University of Los Angeles California (UCLA) created a test that detects biomarkers for disease in about 10 minutes, and they have plans to pair it with a portable device to make it even easier to use.
No methods currently exist for the early detection of Alzheimer's disease, which affects one out of nine people over the age of 65. Now, an interdisciplinary team of Northwestern University scientists and engineers has developed a noninvasive MRI approach that can detect the disease in a living animal. And it can do so at the earliest stages of the disease, well before typical Alzheimer's symptoms appear.
