Researchers May be Closing to Expanding Stem Cells for Life-Saving Bone Marrow Transplants

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - Researchers identified a way to expand blood-forming, adult stem cells from human umbilical cord blood (hUCB) to make these cells more readily accepted in those who undergo treatments for different types of cancers, but do not have an appropriate available bone marrow match. "Life-saving bone marrow transplants have been the common practice for decades, but this...

Super Tiny Computer Created by Researchers Measuring Just 0.3mm

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - The tiniest computer measuring just 0.3mm on a side and dwarfed by a single grain of dust was created at the University of Michigan. A lot more devices like this to arrive in the coming years as the benefits and capabilities of the IoT become more apparent.The Michigan research team dubbed their new device the Michigan Micro Mote. It lacks any kind of memory storage system...

Climate Change-Driven Droughts Are Getting Hotter

Climate Change-Driven Droughts Are Getting Hotter

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – In a new study, researchers report that temperatures during droughts have been rising faster than in average climates in recent decades, and they point to concurrent changes in atmospheric water vapor as a driver of the surge. Dry months are getting hotter in large parts of the United States, another sign that human-caused climate change is forcing people to...

Heatwave Deaths to Rise Steadily by 2080 as Global Temperature Continue to Ascend

Heatwave Deaths to Rise Steadily by 2080 as Global Temperature Continue to Ascend

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - A global new Monash-led study shows that deaths caused by severe heatwaves will increase specially in tropical and subtropical regions if people cannot adapt to future climate temperatures. Published today in PLOS Medicine, it is the first global study to predict future heatwave-related deaths and aims to help decision makers in planning adaptation and mitigation...

Research: Global Biodiversity Collapse Imminent Unless We Do Something about It

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - Unless humans take urgent action to reverse species loss in the tropics, a global biodiversity collapse is imminent, according to a major scientific study in the journal Nature. In their paper 'The future of hyperdiverse tropical ecosystems' an international team has warned that a failure to act quickly and decisively will greatly increase the risk of...
