Feeling anxious about health, family or money is normal for most people—especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. But for those with anxiety disorders, these everyday worries tend to heighten even when there is little or no reason to be concerned.
Indiana University School of Medicine researchers are developing a new, noninvasive brain stimulation technique to treat neurological disorders, including pain, traumatic brain injury (TBI), epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and more.
A group of researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine and Indiana University Bloomington have developed a program called Multi-Omics Graph cOnvolutional NETworks (MOGONET) that integrates omics data – such as DNA, RNA and proteins – to help researchers get a comprehensive understanding of human diseases. MOGONET can identify potential biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease and cancers from the various omics data to predict which individuals may be at higher risk.
A team of scientists, including researchers from Indiana University School of Medicine, is making promising discoveries in the biology behind bipolar disorder that could lead to better treatment options for patients.
Scientists believe a stomach-specific protein plays a major role in the progression of obesity, according to new research in Scientific Reports. The study, co-authored by an Indiana University School of Medicine researcher, could help with development of therapeutics that would help individuals struggling with achieving and maintaining weight loss.
