An “Epic Scientific Missing Event”: NIH Head Francis Collins Pointing to Fall Fall From CRISPR Children‘s Study

In a statement condemning the work of Chinese scientist He Jiankui in using CRISPR for Genetic Modification of Human Embryos, Francis Collins, Head of the United States National Institute for Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, said that the only way forward in germline redevelopment attempts is “strict self-monitoring”. Collins says that NIH includes the role that it may need to play to monitor controversial redevelopment projects going forward.

Private Research Financing Courts Compute Billions in Secret Investments

An investigation of public documents and documents called Paradise Papers has found that leading research philanthropists – including the Wellcome Trust and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation – have invested more than $ 5 billion in maritime tax and secrets. Some investments, such as those in polluting fuels, undermine the charities of the groups. Critics say that when the founders lend their strong reputation on offshore strategies, they help legitimize legal but extreme tax evasion and provide protection for money laundering.

Has our old sun gone on a diet? Band of Martian Stone Could Solve the Weak Young Sun Paradox

Researchers have long been puzzled by something called “weak young sun” paradox: Although our sun used to put less energy and heat than today, there is plenty of evidence of floating water on early earth and mars. Now a team of astronomers says that the early sun was actually more massive than we thought – and that the proof of its mass should be found in sedimentary rocks on Mars.

Why are these Costa Rica monkeys yellow?

When howler monkeys in Costa Rica began to develop yellow spots on their usually black tails and legs, researchers analyzed their fur to find the source of the weird transformation. The researchers found evidence that pigmentation of animals changes through increased pesticide sulfur that they absorb when they sprawl on the trees that surround pineapples, bananas and African palm oil.

Weapons kill more American children than cancer. This emergency medical practitioner aims to prevent these firearms

When Rebecca Cunningham was 5 years old, her mother bought a gun and kicked out her violent man who had hit and threatened to kill her. Now Cunningham, professor of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, is the largest weapon research grant awarded by the United States National Institute of Health (NIH) for at least 30 years. With $ 4.9 million from the NIH Children’s Health Institute and a team of 27 researchers at 12 institutions, she is tasked with spreading drug prevention research on a vulnerable population once she was: US children and teens for whom weapons are next leading cause of death.
