Metabolism drives growth, division of cancer cells
The metabolic state of tumor cells contributes to signals that control the proliferation of tumor cells. In the 1920s, scientists observed that tumor cells radically change their metabolism.

Tick 'cement' as a potential bioadhesive for human tissue
Ticks are well known for their ability to anchor themselves firmly to the skin, so that they can suck blood for several days. This anchoring mechanism is so effective because it is based on a cement-like substance with excellent adhesive properties, so that it works like a dowel for the mouthparts of the tick. Researchers want to study this "tick cement" and recreate it chemically for use in biomaterial research.

Adaptable model recommends response strategies for Zika, other pandemics
A new biological-behavioral-operational computer model could help policy makers choose the best intervention strategies to rapidly contain an infectious disease outbreak. The model is based on the dynamics of disease transmission across different environments and social settings, and provides critical information about how to mitigate infection, monitor risk and trace disease during a pandemic.
