Researchers at the University of Notre Dame studying violence found the larger the population of a society, the smaller its war group size, proportionally — which means fewer casualties in a conflict.

Today the EPA announced a new policy regarding who can serve on the agency’s scientific advisory boards. In earlier comments, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt had questioned the “independence, and the veracity and the transparency of those recommendations that are coming our way” from scientists who have received EPA research funding.

GBSI BioPolicy Summit 2017 Explores the Laboratory of the Future and Technology’s Promising Impact on Reproducible Research

BioPolicy_Robot_Image2017.jpg

Global Biological Standards Institute (GBSI) today brought top scientists and biomedical researchers together with science inventors and programmers to consider the laboratory of the future and explore how newly affordable and accessible digital tools, technologies and lab automation advances will increase reproducibility in preclinical research… and ultimately to accelerate the discovery of treatments and cures. GBSI’s 3rd BioPolicy Summit: “Improving Reproducibility of Research Through Digital Tools, Technologies and Laboratory Automation,” marked the first time the science tech community had brought their expertise to the reproducibility case.

Why Do So Many Nobel Prizes Go to Scientists Working on Fruit Flies?

Nobel.png

This year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young for their studies of the circadian clock in fruit flies. But their discoveries weren’t just insect idiosyncrasies—they held true across much of the living world, from animals to plants and even some bacteria. And, as many researchers building on their work have found, circadian rhythms have immense importance in human health.
