Modern humans are without doubt predators, but we probably evolved from a prey species, and some aspects of this characteristic remain

Our study shows that the astrocytes play an important part in the regulation of breathing by affecting the neurons and their network activity
Eric Herlenius
This type of operation with a relatively low risk of complications is possibly an under-used therapeutic alternative
Jesper Lagergren
Previously, research has focused heavily on individual components, but the immune system is incredibly complex, involving many specialised cell types, and we think the important thing is precisely the interaction between these cells

Our results are of interest to other countries such as the USA, which is about to change its methods

After terror attacks, sensitive people might be afraid even if they themselves were not present
Jan Haaker
The manufacturing process is based on the method spiders use to keep their extremely easily aggregated proteins soluble for silk-spinning
Jan Johansson
This study increases our understanding of how genes are regulated in cells and further aids us in deciphering the grammar written into DNA
Jussi Taipale
We need to ask about aggressive behaviour towards others when we assess and treat self-harming individuals, but we also need to ask about self-harm when we assess and treat aggressive individuals
Hanna Sahlin
We now have a simple tool for identifying and sorting the cells, which benefits future stem cell research and basic research on early embryonic development

Although this might seem simple and obvious, the impact of the hydraulic force on the heart’s filling pattern has been overlooked
Martin Ugander
The diabetes trend is largely driven by lifestyle factors, so to reduce your risk of diabetes you should not use tobacco, avoid being overweight and be physically active.

If we can introduce a more accurate way of testing for prostate cancer, we’ll spare patients unnecessary suffering and save resources for society.
Professor Henrik Grönberg, Karolinska Institutet
The possibility of preventing or slowing down the spread of cancer cells via the lymphatic system is an attractive one, as it could reduce the risk of metastasis to other organs.
Jonas Fuxe, Associate Professor, Karolinska Institutet
The study will form the basis of new guidelines from the WHO, which will recommend that midwives be allowed to handle the treatment of incomplete abortions.
Kristina Gemzell Danielsson, MD, PhD, Professor
Since bariatric surgery followed by pregnancy has both positive and negative effects, these women, when expecting, should be regarded as risk pregnancies.
Dr. Kari Johansson, Karolinska Institutet
We have created a much more detailed map of the cells of the brain that describes each cell type in detail and shows which genes are active in it.
Jens Hjerling-Leffler, principal investigator at Karolinska Institutet
What’s particularly exciting is that we’ve managed to translate laboratory findings into clinical application.
Professor Per Svenningsson, Karolinska Institutet
It's possible that this work opens up a new pharmacological principle in the treatment of depression.
Jorge Ruas, P.I.
Our current view of both the occurrence and treatment of obesity is far too narrow, since we talk almost exclusively about diet and exercise.
Erik Hemmingsson, researcher Karolinska Institutet
De Lange is a frontrunner in the field of telomeres, so we are very pleased to have her give this year's Nicholson Lecture
Professor Maria Masucci, academic host of the lecture at Karolinska Institutet
We believe that these very promising findings represent major advances towards the clinical translation of tissue engineered esophagi.
Dr Paolo Macchiarini
That existing anticancer agents hit the MTH1 shows that the concept really works. Now that we understand the mechanism, we can develop very selective inhibitors.
Professor Thomas Helleday, Karolinska Institutet and SciLifeLab
This is an entirely new mechanism for cancer treatment. A possible medicine based on this principle would therefore attack the glioblastoma in an entirely new way.
Professor Patrik Ernfors
As many as nearly 30 per cent of the adolescents clustered in the 'invisible' group that had a high level of psychopathological symptoms.
Vladimir Carli, researcher at NASP
It has not previously been observed that the inhibition of MYC affects tumour cells in this way
Professor Marie Arsenian Henriksson
Oligonucleotide-based drugs are already available, and it’s very possible that our method could be used to produce purer and cheaper versions of these drugs.
Björn Högberg, Assistant Professor at Karolinska Institutet
