Surprising link between ancient biology and restricted human hair growth found
Surprising link between ancient biology and restricted human hair growth found
University of Manchester scientists have linked one of the ways that cells respond to stressful conditions with restricted healthy hair growth. The Manchester Hair Research Group team unexpectedly discovered the link in a lab experiment where they were testing a drug to see if it cultivates human scalp hair follicles in a dish.

Climate models underestimate carbon cycling through plants
Climate models underestimate carbon cycling through plants
The carbon stored globally by plants is shorter-lived and more vulnerable to climate change than previously thought, according to a new study. The findings have implications for our understanding of the role of nature in mitigating climate change, including the potential for nature-based carbon removal projects such as mass tree-planting.

How high-fibre foods make people feel fuller
How high-fibre foods make people feel fuller
Researchers at Imperial College London have discovered how foods with a higher fibre content keep us feeling more satiated. In a study published today , researchers at Imperial have found that a higher-fibre diet stimulates the release of a key appetite-reducing hormone, in the ileum, part of the small intestine.

Sharp rise in vapers using high-strength nicotine in England
Sharp rise in vapers using high-strength nicotine in England
The proportion of vapers using high-strength nicotine has increased sharply in England since 2021, when disposable e-cigarettes first became popular, according to a new study by UCL researchers. The study, published in the journal Addiction and funded by Cancer Research UK, found that a third of vapers (32.5%) used high-strength nicotine in January 2024 compared to just 3.8% on average between July 2016 and June 2021.

Imperial’s human challenge study helps explain why some people don’t get COVID
New analysis based on Imperial's COVID-19 human challenge study has helped to uncover how some people avoid getting sick. Researchers have found that people who are able to fend off the SARS-CoV-2 virus have unique immune responses which help them to avoid sustained infection. The findings , which are based on samples obtained from the Imperial-led COVID-19 human challenge study, suggest that a localised immune response in the lining of the nose enables individuals to identify the virus and stop it from gaining a foothold to cause infection.

Potential ’life-transforming’ mole reversal therapy shown in rare condition
Researchers at UCL, the Francis Crick Institute and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) have designed a new genetic therapy in mice, that could alleviate debilitating giant moles that occur in a rare skin condition. The treatment could be used to reverse moles, and therefore prevent affected children and adults from developing cancer.

Immune response study explains why some people don’t get Covid
High levels of a key gene in volunteers who managed to fight off infection quickly suggests it has a protective effect against SARS-CoV-2, according to a new study from researchers at UCL, the Wellcome Sanger Institute and Imperial College London. The study, published in Nature , provides the most detailed view of how the body responds when exposed to an infectious disease.

Psoriasis Probe shows high level of arthritis symptoms in patients
Psoriasis Probe shows high level of arthritis symptoms in patients
Early results of an international study examining the risk of arthritis for people with psoriasis have shown a high burden of joint symptoms in 712 patients - 25% of the total studied so far. But the team are still on the hunt for 2,000 more patients with psoriasis, a condition that causes flaky patches of skin covered with white scales which affects about 3% of people in the UK and Europe.

Poor metabolic health linked to worse brain health
People with poor metabolic health are more likely to have memory and thinking problems and worse brain health, according to a new study by researchers at Oxford Population Health. The study is published in Diabetes Care , and is the largest study into metabolic and brain health to date. Poor metabolic health, also known as "metabolic syndrome", is defined as having three or more of the following: a large waist circumference, high triglycerides, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, sometimes known as 'good' cholesterol.

Blood test could predict Parkinson's seven years before symptoms
Blood test could predict Parkinson’s seven years before symptoms
A team of researchers, led by scientists at UCL and University Medical Center Goettingen, Germany, have developed a simple blood test that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to predict Parkinson's up to seven years before the onset of symptoms. Parkinson's disease is the world's fastest growing neurodegenerative disorder and currently affects nearly 10 million people across the globe.

Engineers unlock design for record-breaking robot that could jump twice the height of Big Ben
Manchester engineers unlock design for record-breaking robot that could jump twice the height of Big Ben Engineers at The University of Manchester have unlocked the secrets to designing a robot capable of jumping 200 metres - higher than any other jumping robot designed to date. Using a combination of mathematics, computer simulations, and laboratory experiments, the researchers have discovered how to design a robot with the optimum size, shape and the arrangement of its parts, allowing it to jump high enough to clear obstacles many times its own size.

’Forever chemicals’ found in English otters
New research by Cardiff University's Otter Project has found that PFAS, also known as 'forever chemicals', present in English otters, raising concerns about potential health impacts in the future. The Cardiff scientists tested otters from across the UK to monitor levels of PFAS in the environment, to gain an understanding of the concentration of these chemicals in the UK's freshwaters, their persistence in the environment and any ecological and health risks.

Your bra size is affecting how much you sweat, and it’s not what you’d think
A study by the University of Southampton has revealed a surprising link between breast size and the amount of sweat produced by the breast during exercise. The study looked at 22 women of different ages and breast sizes while they ran in a warm climatic chamber - measuring how much sweat they produced across the breast, how much heat their bodies were producing and how many sweat glands they had on different parts of their breasts.

Brain regions that bias the brain's response to pleasure in bipolar disorder identified
Brain regions that bias the brain’s response to pleasure in bipolar disorder identified
Momentary shifts in mood, even those lasting just a matter of seconds, profoundly alter the brain's response to pleasurable experiences in people with bipolar disorder, finds a new study by UCL researchers. Previous research shows that mood can make us experience events in more positive or negative light - irrespective of having bipolar disorder.

Video analysis of Iceland 2010 eruption could improve volcanic ash forecasts for aviation safety
Video analysis of Iceland 2010 eruption could improve volcanic ash forecasts for aviation safety
Video footage of Iceland's 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption is providing researchers from the University of Cambridge with rare, up-close observations of volcanic ash clouds - information that could help better forecast how far explosive eruptions disperse their hazardous ash particles. When Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, it ejected roughly 250 million tonnes of volcanic ash into the atmosphere: much of which was blown over Europe and into flight paths.

Polyandrous birds evolve faster than monogamous ones, says research
A new study by the Milner Centre for Evolution suggests that mating systems of birds have a stronger effect on evolution rates than previously thought. New research led by the University of Bath's Milner Centre for Evolution shows that shorebird species where females breed with multiple males in each season evolve significantly faster than monogamous species.

Plant-based UPFs linked with higher risk of cardiovascular disease
Heavily processed plant-based foods may be worse for heart health than non-processed foods. New analysis of the health impacts of plant-based ultra-processed foods (UPFs) has found they may pose a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases compared to less-processed plant-based foods. The research , led by the University of São Paulo and involving Imperial College London, used data from more than 118,000 people.
