Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple U to Study Alzheimer's Disease

(Philadelphia, PA) – Finding ways to optimize energy use is critical to keeping up productivity. This idea applies to the human body overall, as well as to each individual cell that makes up the body. Cells, in fact, go to great lengths to maintain energy levels, frequently increasing the activity of certain proteins and support pathways to compensate for drops in energy production that are brought about by stress or disease. One way in which cells compensate for flagging energy production and metabolic dysfunction is mitochondrial calcium transport remodeling – a process marked by seemingly harmless changes in the amount of calcium present within mitochondria, the energy-generating batteries of cells. But while beneficial at first, this response may become maladaptive over time, with altered calcium... Read more →

NJBIA Opposing Bill that Codifies EMP Goals without Establishing Costs

Why you should consider a career as a lawyer

This profession rightly seems to many to be extremely difficult, because in addition to a thorough knowledge of all branches of law, from a professional lawyer, special inner qualities are required: well-developed analytical thinking, logic, pedantry,...
