New technology in cochlear implants and hearing aids means children needn’t suffer from hearing loss, says UC Irvine Dr. Hamid Djalilian.
UCI ophthalmologists pioneer zigzag incision technique that improves outcome of laser-assisted corneal transplantation.
The first human embryonic stem cell treatment approved by the FDA for human testing has been shown to restore limb function in rats with neck spinal cord injuries – a finding that could expand the clinical trial to include people with cervical damage.
Study could shed light on adaptive decision-making in humans.
UC Irvine neuroscientists have found that retinas in mice genetically altered to have Alzheimer’s undergo changes similar to those that occur in the brain – most notably the accumulation of amyloid plaque lesions.
Leslie M. Thompson has her eye on a treatment for the fatal Huntington’s disease. Stem cells may hold the key.
Bad drivers may in part have their genes to blame, suggests a new study by UC Irvine neuroscientists.
A toxin produced by mold on nuts and grains can cause liver cancer if consumed in large quantities. UC Irvine researchers for the first time have discovered what triggers the toxin to form, which could lead to methods of limiting its production.
