Scientists have identified 30 genes linked to physical ageing - one of which may possibly be influenced to extend healthy lifespan in humans - after analysing a 'haystack' of 40,000 genes from three different organisms.
Clinical trials have started for a miracle drug that could help us live into their 120s. The Food and Drug Administration in America has given the green light to the trials of cheap drug metformin, which is used to treat peop
Periods of high extinction on Earth, rather than evolutionary adaptations, may have been a key driver in the diversification of today’s dominant land vertebrates, including reptiles, birds, and mammals, suggests new researc
The first sequencing of genomes extracted from human remains dating back to over 13,000 years ago has unveiled a previously unknown "fourth strand" of ancient European ancestry that later spread to India and other parts of So
Scientists have developed new 3D printing method capable of producing highly uniform blocks of embryonic stem cells (building blocks of life), which could be used as the 'Lego bricks' to build larger structures of tissues, an
Gas produced by decaying human waste is potentially major source of energy, providing electricity for millions of homes while improving sanitary conditions in developing countries, says a UN report has said.
It may be time for the brain science to ditch the 'Mars and Venus' cliche as a recent study has suggested that the gender gaps in the brain are not so much and it's gender stereotyping which makes us different.
The search for the Earth-like planet suitable for humans is still on, but a recent theoretical study from the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore suggests we may be wasting our time as most Earth-like world
