Animal testing methods for endocrine disruptors should change, team argues

Review suggests that oral gavage, the accepted method of dosing lab animals to test chemical toxicity, does not accurately mimic how humans are exposed to chemicals in everyday life

30-06-2014

Challenging risk assessment methods used for decades by toxicologists, a new review of the literature led by environmental health scientist Laura Vandenberg at the University of Massachusetts Amherst suggests that oral gavage, the most widely accepted method of dosing lab animals to test chemical ...

Measuring the mass of 'massless' electrons

Taming graphene, Harvard-led researchers successfully measure collective mass of 'massless' electrons in motion

26-06-2014

Individual electrons in graphene are massless, but when they move together, it's a different story. Graphene, a one-atom-thick carbon sheet, has taken the world of physics by storm—in part, because its electrons behave as massless particles. Yet these electrons seem to have dual personalities. ...
