Recent findings by Japanese scientists reportedly open the possibility of a new drug that could help regenerate lost teeth in humans.
Researchers at Kyoto University and the University of Fukui have found in animal studies that suppressing the uterine sensitization associated gene-1 (USAG-1) gene, by using its antibody, can efficiently lead to tooth growth.
A scientist in Hong Kong has developed an innovative technique for early detection of autism or the risk of autism in children.
The method, created by Chinese University of Hong Kong professor Benny Zee, involves scanning retinas of children as young as six years old using artificial intelligence, reports Reuters.
A team of scientists from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) has developed a new technique that detects prostate cancer in patients with almost 100% accuracy within 20 minutes using only a urine sample. The research was funded by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) and the results are published in the latest issue of ACS Nano.
The team, led by Dr. Kwan Hyi Lee from the Biomaterials Research Center and Professor In Gab Jeong from Asan Medical Center, introduced a smart A.I. analysis method to an electrical-signal-based ultrasensitive biosensor for the new technique, according to Phys.org.
A 12-year-old girl from Chappaqua, New York won $25,000 at the Broadcom MASTERS (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering as Rising Stars), a Society for Science and the Public program, for her research into imaginary colors.
Shiok Meats, a Singapore startup that creates lab-grown shrimps using stem cells, has received a new round of funding to help its research and development as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to put pressure on the global food supply chains.
The new round of Series A funding, which is worth $12.6 million, will help sustain Shiok Meats with its development of lab-grown seafood for three years, Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder Sandhya Sriram said, according to Bloomberg. The company gained attention for growing minced crab, lobster and shrimp meat in a lab using cells extracted from the actual creature.
A pair of 10th graders from India has discovered an asteroid that will eventually find its way toward planet Earth.

The life of a hero: The 73-year-old Chinese American virologist and molecular biologist, who saved countless lives for her significant contribution in AIDS research while in the United States, was born as Yee Ching Wong on August 27, 1946, in China.
Japanese scientists created some miniature bronchi that can be used to study the pathogen causing COVID-19, and ultimately, help develop a drug that would cure it.
The results, published on May 29, showcase bronchial “organoids” with a diameter of 0.2 millimeter, which took about 10 days to cultivate.
China could now be laying the groundwork for the development of plasma jets, giving the world a peek into the future of sustainable air travel.
In a paper published last week, researchers at the Institute of Technological Sciences at Wuhan University — one of the country’s most prestigious universities with a “Double First Class” status — announced that they had developed a prototype of a plasma jet device, using electricity to run its engine.
A comprehensive genetic study on red pandas has revealed that the endangered mammals from Asia’s high forests belong to two distinct species and not just a single one as previously believed.
Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and Kunming based their findings on an analysis of DNA from 65 red pandas. They found significant differences between the two species through three genetic markers.
So far, speculations include the possibility that (1) the pathogen was bioengineered and (2) that a laboratory worker was infected while handling a bat.
