  1. eLife showcases important advances in Physics of Living Systems

    eLife's new subject area highlights leading research at the interface between the physical and life sciences.
  2. New insight on malaria parasite transmission could inform future drug development

    Newly published clinical trial results suggest an established model for studying malaria could be used to evaluate interventions that block parasite transmission.
  3. ‘Social brain’ networks are altered at a young age in autism

    Study suggests interventions targeting the ability of young children with autism to respond to social cues could potentially restore their social brain development.
  4. Study shows late-born hibernators grow more rapidly than early-born counterparts

    Dormice born late in the summer undergo accelerated growth, enabled by increased food intake and reduced activity duration, as a compensatory strategy for a late start.
  5. Scientists present new treatment strategy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

    Research suggests preserving neuromuscular synapses, which connect nerve and muscle and become disassembled during amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, could help treat the disease.
  6. Safe water supplies reduce parasitic infection among rural African children

    New study suggests increased provisions of safe water over seven years in rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, have led to an eight-fold decrease in the risk of children contracting urogenital schistosomiasis.
  7. Appetite-controlling molecule could prevent ‘rebound’ weight gain after dieting

    New findings could pave the way for therapies to prevent the regain of weight following the initial success of diet-induced weight loss.
  8. eLife enhances open annotation with Hypothesis to promote scientific discussion online

    The open-source Hypothesis software has been extensively customised for use by eLife and other publishers, with new features giving publishers more control over its implementation on their sites.
  9. Study suggests new approach for targeting cancer-causing protein, RAS: attack from outside the cell

    Attacking mutated RAS proteins on cancer cells from the outside-in could be a viable therapeutic approach for previously ‘undruggable’ cancer targets.
  10. Mosquito bite frequency influences malaria spread

    New study suggests variation in the frequency of mosquito bites within regions and even households is likely to play a key role in the success of malaria control efforts.
