Mapping the hidden connections between diseases
A new study led by UCL researchers has identified patterns in how common health conditions occur together in the same individuals, using data from four million patients in England. With advancing age, millions of people live with multiple conditions - sometimes referred to as multimorbidity - and the proportion of people affected in this way is expected to rise over the next decades.

Open Science: data sharing struggling
Despite mandatory data sharing policies adopted by some scientific journals, the potential for reuse of these data remains limited. This is the finding of a meta-research on open science undertaken by Dominique Roche, postdoctoral fellow in biology at the University of Neuchâtel. Open science is a worldwide movement to make scientific research and its data transparent and accessible to all.

UvA takes another big step towards 100% Open Access
In 2021 off all peer reviewed scientific articles at the UvA, 79 percent was published in open access or made freely available through the repository. This is a growth of almost 8 percentage point compared to 2020. Each year in October the Dutch universities are reporting , via the Universiteiten Nederland , the percentage open access peer reviewed articles for the year before to the minister of OCW.

New cervical cancer test detects precancerous lesions years in advance
A newly developed test detects early precancerous changes in the cervix. This procedure works better than currently available methods and detects the changes years before cancer develops. The test was developed under the direction of Martin Widschwendter, Professor of Cancer Prevention and Screening at the University of Innsbruck.

A one-stop-shop for brain imaging
Software tool brings together multiple brain maps in one place The brain is a complex organ, and no one imaging mode can catch everything that's going on inside it. Over the years, multiple -brain maps- have emerged, each focusing on different brain processes, from metabolism to cognitive function. While these maps are important, using them in isolation limits the discoveries researchers can make from them.

More Dependability in the Internet of things
Tens of millions of mini-computers now populate our planet - built into everyday objects, among other things. Their reliability is still an issue - one to which TU Graz is dedicated to pursuing. "Smart applications are already an integral part of our everyday lives and are embedded in everyday objects such as mobile phones, smart watches and smart electricity meters.

Neural networks predict forces in jammed granular solids
Researchers led by Göttingen University develop new machine-learning method to understand force chains Granular matter is all around us. Examples include sand, rice, nuts, coffee and even snow. These materials are made of solid particles that are large enough not to experience thermal fluctuations. Instead, their state is determined by mechanical influences: shaking produces -granular gases- whilst by compression one gets -granular solids-.

New method based on smart materials for experimenting with cells
Scientists from 4D-BIOMAP, an ERC research project at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), have developed a new experimental method, based on magneto-active polymers, to study cellular behaviour. These compounds, which consist of a polymeric matrix (e.g., an elastomer) containing magnetic particles (e.g., iron), mechanically react by changing their shape and stiffness.

Chemists use light energy to produce small molecular rings
In the search for new active agents in medicine, molecules whose atoms are linked in rings are becoming increasingly important. Such ring systems have particularly suitable properties for producing such active agents and they are driving the development of innovative treatments for malignant tumours, as well as for neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.

Photon-photon interactions in the Standard Model and beyond: New research unit at JGU granted DFG funding
A pure quantum effect as the key to a better understanding of the subatomic world / New research program in Mainz bundles a wide range of expertise In classical physics, the superposition of light waves resulting in interference is a well-known phenomenon. An interaction of light rays in the sense of a scattering is, however, classically impossible.

New findings on the internal clock of the fruit fly
Light as a regulator: Team of researchers demonstrates role of transport proteins in the synchronisation of circadian rhythms Most living organisms have an internal clock which, among other things, controls the sleep-wake rhythm. The internal rhythm lasts approximately one day ("circadian"), i.e. about 24 hours, and is regulated by means of various "clock genes".

Journal agreements make Western research more accessible
Western Libraries has reached licencing deals with academic publishers so that more research is in open-access journals. Photo by Bernd Klutsch of Unsplash When professor Johanna Weststar's most recent research paper was done, reviewed, revised and accepted into her preferred academic journal, just one more question remained: open access or closed? If closed (or subscription) access, publication fees would cost her $5,000.

Colossal black holes locked in dance at heart of galaxy
Caught in an epic cosmic waltz, two supermassive black holes appear to be orbiting around each other every two years. A team of researchers has discovered the pair of supermassive black holes caught in the act of merging 13 billion light-years away. The two massive bodies are each hundreds of millions of times the mass of our sun and span a distance roughly fifty times the size of our own solar system.

Journalists tend to temper, not exaggerate, scientific claims, U-M study shows
While splashy clickbait headlines touting the power of chocolate to cure everything from acne to cancer are certainly attention grabbers, these articles may not be commonplace in science communication. A University of Michigan large-scale study of uncertainty in science communications indicates that journalists tend to temper-not exaggerate-scientific claims.
