Cancer to be ‘birthed’ in lab to learn prevention instead of cure

Cancer to be ‘birthed’ in lab to learn prevention instead of cure

Technology
Cancer will be grown in a lab by scientists trying to find ways to stop the disease before it develops.A new transatlantic research alliance of scientists from the UK and US, working on a five-year, £55m budget, will "birth" a tumour in lab-grown human tissue. The International Alliance for Cancer Early Detection (ACED), made up of experts from Cancer Research UK and five top universities, hopes to promote "rapid, cost-effective" early intervention over the "expensive firefighting of late-stage disease". Scientists are already investigating how to take cells out of someone at high risk of developing cancer and reproduce them using a 3D printer to test under what conditions they are most likely to turn cancerous.They also hope to develop screening tests that will detect multiple cancers

Entertainment
Angelina Jolie has championed the role men can play in shaping the personalities of young girls.The actress, who stars in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, also said female characters in films should not have to be portrayed as physically tough in order to be considered strong."I think that, so often, when a story's told which says 'this is a strong woman', she has to beat the man, or she has to be like the man, or she has to somehow not need the man," Jolie told journalists at the film's launch.Referring to her own character in the film and Princess Aurora, played by Elle Fanning, Jolie said: "We both very much need and love and learn from the men. "And so I think that's also an important message for young girls, to find their own p...

Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Currently, rice is the only crop staple that can withstand flooding. But with floods in some parts of the world expected to increase in severity and frequency as a result of climate change, scientists are working hard to develop more resilient crops. New research, published this week in the journal Science, suggests long dormant genes can be turned on to help crops survive extreme weather. Rice was domesticated from a wild species native to the tropics, where the grain evolved to endure heavy rains and flooding. Other grains possess the same genes as rice, but they remain silenced even when the crops experience flood conditions. For the study, scientists analyzed gene expression in the root cells from rice plants, as well as the root cells of a wild-growing tomato, a to...
