Monash discovery may help unlock the key to infertility in older women

Mié, 05/17/2017 - 22:00
Findings from new research led by the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) and University College London may finally resolve, and potentially provide answers, as to why older women have higher incidences of miscarriage and have babies with chromosomal abnormalities.

The Charlie Sheen effect on HIV testing

Mié, 05/17/2017 - 22:00
On Nov. 17, 2015, actor Charlie Sheen publicly disclosed he was HIV-positive on NBC's Today Show. In previous research, scientists found that Sheen's disclosure corresponded with millions of online search queries for HIV prevention and testing. A follow-up study finds it also led to more sales of in-home HIV testing kits.
