Poster is a great way to disseminate your idea as you can chat with the authors face to face.

Webinar

Commented on Understanding Your Cancer Risk and Prevention
This is very informative. As 1/3 of us or even more will eventually get cancer as we age.

Article

Commented on A genetically tractable jellyfish model for systems and evolutionary neuroscience
@Neil, truth. This creature aren’t simple.

Hub

Commented on Peer-review platforms
Frontier journals launched an interactive peer review platform so the authors can view the reviewer’s comments and answer it in the “real time”. It saves lot of time.

Article

Commented on Bottom-up fabrication of a proteasome–nanopore that unravels and processes single proteins
A breakthrough in protein engineering, now a new technique was developed by scientists that they can slice proteins into segments and guide them through a narrow molecular tunnel.

Article

Commented on A genetically tractable jellyfish model for systems and evolutionary neuroscience
Using a novel transgenic jellyfish, life scientists uncovered how these organisms survive without a brain. Briefly, the neuronal arrangement in jellyfish seems to follow a hierarchical pattern, with different body parts being controlled separately.

Article

Commented on Efficient treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxis in rhesus macaques by an HIV fusion-inhibitory lipopeptide
In a monkey model, the concentration of an HIV virus was reduced to undetectable levels by a new fatty molecule molecule. This gives a new hope for HIV patients.

Funding

Commented on Advancing Diversity and Inclusion
Interesting collaborative grant between US and Canada.

Funding

Commented on New Air Combat Capability - Industry Support Program (NACC-ISP)
I think they have very tight policy to select the applicants.

Poster

Commented on The promotion of plant growth and fruit features after the application of chitosan isolated from Parapenaeus longirostris shells
Chitosan is abundant and cheap and it has been approved as food additives so using chitosan for plant growth is smart.

Poster

Commented on Topical metformin 30 % gel in the treatment of acne vulgaris: A split face, placebo controlled study
Interesting poster, are they going to commercialize soon?

Funding

Commented on Science Foundations for Energy Earthshots
Funded by the United States Department of Energy (DOE), the goal of the initiative is to accelerate clean energy innovation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Funding

Commented on Centers of Research Excellence in Science and Technology HBCU Research Infrastructure for Science and Engineering
The Principal Investigator of the proposal need to be a full-time faculty appointment in the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

Article

Commented on Beneficial Effects of Dark Chocolate for Episodic Memory in Healthy Young Adults: A Parallel-Groups Acute Intervention with a White Chocolate Control
It is known that dark chocolate has beneficial effects on memory. Dark chocolate contains flavonoids which improve brain function and may have a positive effect on memory.

Article

Commented on A single dose of dark chocolate increases parasympathetic modulation and heart rate variability in healthy subjects
It is known that dark chocolate has many heart health benefits, including a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes, preventing blood clots, and lowering cholesterol but eating too much will cause overweight because it is very high calories.
