Neurons that sense pain protect the gut from inflammation and associated tissue damage by regulating the microbial community living in the intestines, according to a study from researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine.
A highly innovative method using the latest technology opens myriad new avenues for research, for understanding the biology behind COVID-19, and for identifying new treatments that target protein binding sites.
Lipids – fats – make great walls for cells and organelles because they are water resistant and dynamic. But those same characteristics also make them hard to image using expansion microscopy, a technique that works for magnifying other cell components.
The confusing response to COVID-19 in the U.S. resulted from decisions by President Donald Trump and his allies to politicize the pandemic by associating it with his own fate in office, according to a new book by a Cornell author.
More than 70 faculty from Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell Engineering and Cornell Tech assembled Oct. 1 at the Statler Ballroom — and more joined remotely — to kick off the Cornell Engineering Innovations in Medicine initiative.
The psychedelic drugs LSD and psilocybin activate serotonin receptors on brain cells in a way that reduces the energy needed for the brain to switch between different activity states, according to a study led by Weill Cornell Medicine researchers.
