New insight to Campylobacter sensor structures could lead to targeted antibiotic development

Researchers from the Institute of Glycomics have identified a novel bacterial sensor in Campylobacter species that enable the pathogenic cells to find suitable host cells. The findings have been published in Science Signalling. Campylobacter bacteria are the leading cause of food-borne illness, contributing to enteritis and other gastrointestinal distress we commonly identify as “food poisoning.” About one percent of the […]

Scientists shed light on processes behind age-related decline in brain structures important for memory

Ageing can cause damage to support cells in the white matter, which in turn may lead to damage in the grey matter of the hippocampus, finds a new study by Cardiff University. The discovery gives researchers a new area to focus on in the search for treatments that can protect cognitive function. Claudia Metzler-Baddeley, from Cardiff University’s Brain Imaging Research […]
