Reducing the Racial Gap in Student Suspensions With an Empathic Mindset Intervention
There is a racial gap in student suspensions, with African American students accounting for almost a third of all suspensions but making up only about a tenth of the student population. This gap has been shown to be partially attributable to the way that suspensions are enforced and handled, with African American students experiencing harsher punishments than their white peers.

Successful fabrication of artificial heart that is fit for a human
A major step forward in fabricating an artificial heart, fit for a human has been made by scientists at the University of Utah. The team has created a 3D-printed heart that is capable of contracting and pumping blood. The artificial heart was developed using a bioprinting technique that uses a patient's own cells to create the organ. The artificial heart is currently being tested on pigs and could be available to humans within five years.

New research suggests that adverse childhood experiences, such as abuse and neglect, accelerate the biological processes of aging
According to new research, adverse childhood experiences, such as abuse and neglect, accelerate the biological processes of aging. The study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, found that the longer a person has experienced such abuse or neglect, the more likely they are to experience accelerated aging.

The oral antibiotic advancing cystic fibrosis treatment
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease caused by a defective CFTR protein. CFTR is responsible for regulating the flow of salt and water through the lungs. In people with CF, the protein is not able to function properly, and salt and water can not flow through the lungs as easily as they should. This can lead to thick mucus in the lungs and other problems.

New psychology research indicates that memories can be biased by partisan beliefs
According to a new study published in the journal Memory, partisan biases can promote false memories. The study found that when people are reminded of politically charged information, they are more likely to remember it incorrectly.

People with a higher level of vitamin D in their blood are less likely to develop cancer
A recent study published in the journal Radiology found that people with a higher level of vitamin D in their blood are less likely to develop cancer. The study was conducted on a group of cancer patients and found that those with a higher vitamin D level had a lower risk of developing cancer.

The development of new treatments for brain disorders
A new study has found that novel treatments for brain disorders are being developed at a much faster rate than previously thought. The study, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, found that new treatments for brain disorders have been developed in the past five years at a rate of almost one a day. This is much faster than the rate at which these treatments were being developed in the past.

The identification of new genetic markers that can help predict the development of cancer
Cancer is a serious health problem that affects millions of people around the world. Although there is no cure for cancer, there are many treatments available that can help prolong a person’s life. Cancer is caused by the abnormal growth of cells in the body. Cancer can be divided into two main groups: solid tumors andnon-solid tumors. Solid tumors are tumors that are made up of solid tissues, such as cancerous cells in the breast, colon, and brain. Non-solid tumors are tumors that are made up of fluid or gas, such as leukemia.

The discovery of new ways to prevent and treat dementia
As the population ages, the number of people living with dementia is on the rise. And because dementia is a progressive brain disease, there is no one cure. However, new ways to prevent and treat dementia are being discovered all the time.
One of the newest ways to prevent dementia is with a vaccine. A study published in the journal Neurology found that a vaccine against a type of dementia called Alzheimer's disease could prevent the disease in mice. The vaccine worked by stopping the growth of the Alzheimer's disease-causing plaque in the brain.
Another way to prevent dementia is with exercise. A study published in the journal Neurology found that people who exercised regularly had a 50% lower risk of developing dementia than people who didn't exercise. The study found that the benefits of exercise were especially strong in people who were already at risk for dementia.
Another way to prevent dementia is with brain-training exercises. A study published in the journal Neurology found that people who participated in brain-training exercises had a 50% lower risk of developing dementia than people who didn't participate in the exercises. The exercises helped to improve the brain's ability to learn new skills.
There is no one cure for dementia, but new ways to prevent and treat the disease are being discovered all the time.

The development of novel cancer therapies through the use of epigenetic drugs
Epigenetic drugs can target epigenetic modifications to control or cure cancer. Epigenetic modifiers have been found to be particularly effective against cancer stem cells, which are the cells that are most likely to relapse and metastasize.
One class of epigenetic drugs is the small molecule inhibitors of DNA methylation. These drugs bind to the enzyme that catalyzes the addition of a methyl group to the cytosine base of DNA, and thereby inhibit the expression of target genes.
Another class of epigenetic drugs is the small molecule inhibitors of histone methylation. These drugs bind to the enzyme that catalyzes the addition of a methyl group to the histone protein, and thereby inhibit the binding of histones to DNA.
Epigenetic drugs have been found to be effective against a wide range of cancer types, including ovarian, pancreatic, liver, and brain cancer. However, they have not been found to be as effective as traditional cancer therapies. Epigenetic drugs are currently being studied as potential cancer therapies for a variety of cancers, including colon, lung, and breast cancer.
