Brain changes linked with Alzheimer’s years before symptoms appear

May 20, 2019

In a records review of 290 people at risk for Alzheimer’s disease, scientists at Johns Hopkins say they have identified an average level of biological and anatomical brain changes linked to Alzheimer’s disease that occur three to 10 years — some even more than 30 years — before the disease’s first recognizable symptoms appear. “Our […]

A new computational strategy paves the way for more personalized cancer treatment

May 14, 2018

Mathematicians and cancer scientists have found a way to simplify complex biomolecular data about tumors, in principle making it easier to prescribe the appropriate treatment for a specific patient. The digital approach from scientists at the Johns Hopkins University—a computational strategy transforms highly complex information into a simplified format that emphasizes patient-to-patient variation in the […]

Upstarts: A Better Blood Test?

January 25, 2018

Lensless microchip sensors can resolve images down to the level of a molecule or less. The trick to making them useful for hematological applications is to readily detect and report on what’s contained in a few drops of blood. Read the full article in the JHU Engineering magazine.
