Certain social and environmental factors increase a community’s risk of COVID-19: News at IU: Indiana University

INDIANAPOLIS – The combination of threats from COVID-19 and extreme heat in many socially vulnerable communities across the United States is a real concern for public health officials, highlighting the need to better understand how aggravating factors can increase the risk of COVID-19. In a new study published in GeoHealth, researchers and colleagues at IUPUI […]

New techniques extract more precise data from images degraded by environmental factors – sciencedaily

Computer vision technology is increasingly used in areas such as automatic surveillance systems, self-driving cars, facial recognition, healthcare, and social distancing tools. Users need accurate and reliable visual information to fully exploit the benefits of video analytics applications, but the quality of video data is often affected by environmental factors such as rain, nighttime conditions, […]

Dr. Ezio Bonifacio describes the genetic and environmental factors associated with T1D diagnoses

Researchers are not sufficiently studying type 1 diabetes in minority populations, said Ezio Bonifacio, PhD, professor of diabetes and preclinical stem cell work at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany. Transcription: Do we know what genetic or environmental factors “tip the scales” in the development of type 1 diabetes (T1D)? Are some factors more important […]

How environmental factors could supply a young brain – sciencedaily

A stimulating environment keeps the “hippocampus” – which is the brain’s memory control center – young, so to speak. The causes of this are molecular mechanisms that affect the regulation of genes. These current findings from studies in mice provide clues as to why an active and varied life can help maintain the mental health […]

Effect of environmental factors on the nanostructure of bioplastics

June 17, 2021 A biologist from RUDN University studied the aggressive effect of environmental factors, such as ozone, salts and water, on Ultrafine nanofibers of biopolymers. The RUDN University biologist studied the aggressive impact of environmental factors (water, salts and ozone) on ultrafine nanofibers of biopolymers. The results will help to choose the appropriate bioplastic […]

Psychological and non-environmental factors are important

During pandemics, protective behaviors must be motivated by effective communication. A critical factor in understanding a population’s response to such a threat is the fear it elicits, as fear both helps motivate protective responses, but can also lead to panic behaviors. Additionally, lockdown measures affect well-being, making it important to identify protective factors that help […]

How do environmental factors affect fetal development?

Associate Professor Ken Tachibana reveals how prenatal exposure to ambient fine particles disrupts DNA methylation and subsequent gene expression in fetal development Human and animal epidemiological studies indicate that nutrition and environmental stimuli during prenatal and postnatal mammalian development influence developmental pathways and thus induce permanent changes in metabolism and susceptibility to chronic disease. Nutritional […]

Dr. Stephanie Lovinsky-Desir discusses her research on environmental factors, exercise and respiratory health

Stephanie Lovinsky-Desir, MD, MS, describes her research on the impact of environmental factors on the respiratory health of children. We know that exposure to air pollution can lead to the development of asthma as well as asthma exacerbations, said Stephanie Lovinsky-Desir, MD, MS, pediatric pulmonologist at Columbia University Medical Center and new director of this.
