Mathematics used in Understanding of Health and Disease

25 March, 2019 – 4:32 pm |

Math-based computer models are a powerful tool to discover the details of complex living systems. John Tyson, a professor of biology at Virginia Tech, is the creation of such models to discover how cells process information and make decisions. “Cells receive information in the form of chemical signals, physical attachment to other cells, or radiation […]

Garlic’s Cancer-Fighting Potential

24 March, 2019 – 4:32 pm |

Researchers have developed a urine test that can simultaneously measure the extent of a potential carcinogenic process and an indicator of consumption of garlic in humans.
