Squires describes a single layer of molecules that keeps people breathing, and particles being designed to find their own way in a complex world.

Child Psychiatrist Dr. Jeremy Veenstra-VanderWeele explores the two main approaches for developing autism medicines. The first and most common approach is to evaluate a treatment in the total group of people affected by ASD, usually with a small number excluded due to the presence of a known genetic syndrome. he second approach is almost the exact opposite, to study a medication for ASD-related symptoms in a defined genetic syndrome that confers substantial risk of ASD but comprises <2% of individuals with ASD. Transformative treatments, though possibly not "cures," seem most likely to emerge from the second approach, but in a small group of children. In contrast, if the first approach is successful, we can expect a treatment that benefits a larger group of children, but likely benefits them less.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer worldwide. Heart attacks occur when clogged coronary arteries prevent the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart. That causes heart muscle cells to die off, causing permanent damage. Stress, smoking, high blood pressure and lack of exercise are all factors that can lead to a heart attack. But scientists in Lübeck have also discovered some genetic components. In numerous studies, they have identified genes or gene defects that increase the risk of heart attacks. Their work may lead to the development of therapies to treat the affected people in time.
