While neuroscience textbooks establish the irreversible nature of this specialization process, researchers at the University of Geneva (UNIGE
) now provide proof to the contrary.
A few years ago, UNIGE
astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope discovered that a warm Neptune on the edge of the desert, GJ 436b, was losing hydrogen from its atmosphere.
Muhammad Ansar, a researchers at the Department of Genetic Medicine and Development at UNIGE
said, We found a pathogenic mutation in a new gene ndash that was not linked to any disease before ndash named as MARK3 in a Pakistani family of three affected individuals.
researchers have collaborated with experts at Houston's Baylor College of Medicine, to genetically modify drosophilae by introducing the mutation of two copies in the MARK3 gene of the flies.

Researchers from the Universities of Geneva (UNIGE
) and Lausanne (UNIL), the Vaud University Hospital Centre (CHUV), the Centre for Biomedical Imaging (CIBM), the Federal Polytechnic School of Lausanne (EPFL) and the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG), Switzerland, teamed up to perform a detailed analysis of hepatic encephalopathy, a type of brain damage caused by chronic liver disease.
Team members from UNIGE
, members of the National Centre for Competence in Research PlanetS, had the idea of pointing another telescope equipped with a brand-new instrument -- a spectrograph called Carmenes.
These individuals developed progressive Phthisis bulbi (shrinkage of the eyeball),' says Muhammad Ansar, a researchers at the Department of Genetic Medicine and Development at UNIGE
In experiments in mice, the researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE
) prevented lung cancer induced by a carcinogen found in cigarette smoke by using resveratrol.
Researchers from Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, and the University of Geneva (UNIGE
), Switzerland, have devised a new battery prototype: known as "all-solid-state", this battery has the potential to store more energy while maintaining high safety and reliability levels.
