Fasting, including intermittent fasting, has been linked to many potential health benefits, including lower blood pressure, improved brain health, and similar. However, more controversy exists when it comes to fasting for weight loss, a controversy that has expanded with a new study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Dieting to lose weight A typical diet for … Continue reading

The inactive ingredients found in medication, including things like fillers and dyes, may not be as inactive as they seem, according to a new study. Some of these compounds may have an active effect on the body and, in some cases, may be harmful, the research suggests. Though inactive ingredients are often an important part of various drugs, the study … Continue reading

Patrick M. Woster, Ph.D. of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) is among the 396 members selected as a 2017 AAAS Fellow due to their distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.

The AAAS is recognized as the world's largest multidisciplinary scientific society and a leading publisher of scientific journals, including Science.

As part of the AAAS' Section on Pharmaceutical Sciences, Woster was elected for his contributions to the field of medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry, particularly for the study of polyamine analogues and small-molecule epigenetic modulators as potential therapeutics in cancer and infectious disease.

Woster, who is an Endowed Chair in Medicinal Chemistry through the SmartState Center of Economic Excellence and a member of the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, serves as chair of the Department of Drug Discovery & Biomedical Sciences and director of the MUSC Drug Discovery Core.

Most recently, he has been working to develop a new gene-modifying sickle cell disease treatment, which could be fast-tracked to human clinical trials in as little as three years.

"Dr. Woster's commitment to innovation and discovery is reflected in the significant contributions he makes to scientific knowledge through his own research as well in the inspiration he provides as department chair.

(Aarhus University) An international team of researchers led by Aarhus University are the first to determine the crystal structure of an exopolysaccharide receptor. The results give insight into how plants and microbes communicate, and this knowledge can hopefully be used for more sustainable agriculture where microbes play an important role.

(American Chemical Society) During the COVID-19 pandemic, cloth face masks became a way to help protect yourself and others from the virus. And for some people, they became a fashion statement, with many fabric choices available. But just how effective are they, especially in containing a sneeze? Now, researchers reporting in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering used high-speed videos of a person sneezing to identify the optimal cloth mask design.

(Penn State) Wearable sensors are evolving from watches and electrodes to bendable devices that provide far more precise biometric measurements and comfort for users. Now, an international team of researchers has taken the evolution one step further by printing sensors directly on human skin without the use of heat.

(American Phytopathological Society) A Practical Guide to Turfgrass Fungicides, Second Edition, is a current, comprehensive, and hands-on resource focused specifically on the fungicides used for disease control on turfgrass. Author Richard Latin developed this user-friendly guide based on his belief that if turf managers understand how and why fungicides work (and sometimes fail), they will use these products more effectively and efficiently and communicate disease control issues with greater confidence.
