Children undergoing radiation for cancer may have alternative to sedation
Radiation therapy for children with cancer is painless, but preparation for it may cause great stress for a child and his or her family because the child is routinely sedated before each treatment, to stay motionless. Manish Vaidya at the University of North Texas is using a computer program to train young patients to stay motionless so sedation won't be necessary.

Misfolding in mitochondria: How does the cell react?
Misfolded proteins cause many diseases including neurodegenerative conditions and cancer. To protect themselves from protein misfolding, cells have developed sophisticated quality control mechanisms. How these function in the case of protein misfolding in mitochondria is now the subject of research currently being conducted by Dr. Christian Münch at the Institute of Biochemistry II of Goethe University Frankfurt. The German Research Foundation is supporting his work with an Emmy Noether grant of up to € 2 million.
