    Our ‘zombie’ solar cells could power indoor devices without sunlight0

    Internet connected devices need power. That either means connecting them to the grid, which limits what we can use them for, or using batteries. So as the Internet of Things grows and more and more internet-enabled devices and sensors are rolled out as is expected, it could produce billions of extra batteries that have to

  • First Comprehensive Survey of Virus DNA Found Within Cancer Cells

    First Comprehensive Survey of Virus DNA Found Within Cancer Cells0

    Researchers from the University of East Anglia have helped to carry out the first comprehensive survey of viruses found within different types of cancer. An international team systematically investigated the DNA found within more than 2,600 tumour samples from patients with 38 different types of cancer. They discovered traces of viruses in 13 per cent

    Protein restores brain cells damaged by Parkinson’s0

    It may be possible to restore the cells damaged in Parkinson’s, according to a new study published in Brain and the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease. The study aimed to investigate whether boosting the levels of a naturally-occurring protein, Glial Cell Line Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF), can regenerate dying brain cells in people with Parkinson’s and reverse their condition, which

    Brand new drug kills cancer cells from within0

    A brand new type of cancer drug that acts as a ‘Trojan horse’ to get inside tumour cells has shown promise in patients with six different cancer types. In patients with advanced, drug-resistant cancers, over a quarter with cervical and bladder tumours, and nearly 15 per cent with ovarian and lung tumours, responded to the
