Nuclear cardiac imaging: the “old grandma” has still something to say

Ischemic heart disease (IHD) remains one of the most relevant predictors of overall patients’ mortality and a major determinant of sanitary and social costs. Different strategies have been proposed for the early diagnosis of myocardial ischemia, a

Towards a nuclear weapons free world

The dream of a world without nuclear weapons has come a little closer to reality over the past three years, thanks to a renewed focus on the catastrophic humanitarian impacts of these worst of all weapons. Beginning

Electrochemical oxidation of americium and its role in nuclear waste processing

Nuclear energy is a promising source of renewable energy, however, to facilitate its adoption and avoid nuclear proliferation, solutions to the handling, reprocessing, and disposal of nuclear waste must be addressed. In the United States, commercial reactors

Control of cell identity by the nuclear architecture

In a complex organism, all cells use their identical genetic potential to differentiate into a variety of cell types characterized by different morphology, nuclear shape and function. This is possible because only a small subset of genes

Fluid flow dynamics in a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance system

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is a very powerful analysis method employed in biology and chemistry. It helps us to gain information about the molecular structure of a wide range of molecules. For example food production companies employ

Metabolic regulation by the intestinal hormone FGF19: From basic science to clinical application

Physiological adaptations of our body to changes in nutritional status induced by fasting or food intake occur various times per day and are crucial to maintain a healthy metabolic state. To meet this requirement, our body is
