Analysis of a supposed outbreak of MRSA in a Cambridge hospital raises questions about whether the superbug can be completely eradicated, despite a national policy of zero-tolerance
Viruses alter plant biochemistry in order to manipulate visiting aphids into spreading infection
New research from Cambridge should help hospitals control the spread of MRSA and other emerging superbugs.
Scientists from the University of Cambridge and Aberystwyth University have created a "robot scientist" which the researchers believe is the first machine to have independently discovered new scientific knowledge.
Scientists from Cambridge University have discovered four rare mutations of a gene associated with type 1 diabetes (T1D) that reduce the risk of developing the disease. Their findings, published today in the journal Science, suggest a link between T1D and the enterovirus (a common virus that enters via the gastrointestinal tract but is often non-symptomatic).
