Could probiotics help save honey bee colonies from collapse?

Probiotics, beneficial microorganisms best known for promoting gut health in humans, are now being used by Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute scientists to save honey bee colonies from collapse. A new study published in the Nature journal ISME J demonstrates how probiotics could potentially stave off a common bacterial hive infestation called American Foulbrood. “Probiotics aren’t just for humans,” said

Using CRISPR to alter the microbiome

Researchers at Western University have developed a new way to deliver the DNA-editing tool CRISPR-Cas9 into microorganisms in the lab, providing a way to efficiently launch a targeted attack on specific bacteria. Published today in Nature Communications, this study opens up the possibility of using CRISPR to alter the makeup of the human microbiome in a way that could be personalized

New green bioreactors could produce pharmaceuticals in a way that is much more affordable than current methods

Researchers at Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute are using tobacco plants as ‘green bioreactors’ to produce an anti-inflammatory protein with powerful therapeutic potential. The plants are being used to produce large quantities of a human protein called Interleukin 37, or IL-37. The protein is naturally produced in the human kidney in very small quantities and has powerful

A clinically validated 3D-printed stethoscope costs $3 to produce and can be a lifesaver in areas of the world where other medical technology is scarce

Dr. Tarek Loubani has worked as an emergency room physician in hospitals during some of their most desperate times. In 2012, he was practising in a hospital in Gaza, and found himself sharing his one stethoscope with ten other doctors who were trying to treat more than 100 patients. “We weren’t just low on medical

Is healthy aging predicated by the bacteria in your gut?

In one of the largest microbiota studies conducted in humans, researchers at Western University,Lawson Health Research Institute and Tianyi Health Science Institute in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, China have shown a potential link between healthy aging and a healthy gut. With the establishment of the China-Canada Institute, the researchers studied the gut bacteria in a cohort of more than

Dark Energy Camera Looks Both Near and Far

The Dark Energy Camera does more than its name would lead you to believe The Dark Energy Camera, or DECam, peers deep into space from its mount on the 4-meter Victor Blanco Telescope high in the Chilean Andes. Thirty percent of the camera’s observing time—about 105 nights per year—go to the team that built it:

Dispute Over the Future of Basic Research in Canada

University scientists and academic organizations are uncharacteristically vocal about the government’s blunt preference for commercially applicable science Canada’s National Research Council is the country’s premier scientific institution, helping to produce such inventions as the pacemaker and the robotic arm used on the American space shuttle. But last year, its mission changed. The Canadian government announced
