  • Tool quantifies differences in DNA repair among individuals
    Paper of the Month - November 2021
    CometChip -- a high-throughput tool developed with NIEHS funds to quantify DNA damage -- can be used to measure differences among individuals in terms of their bodies capacity to repair such damage, according to a recent institute-supported study. That information may help to shed light on how much of a person s disease risk is due to genetic versus environmental factors.
  • Hospitalization following extreme weather, opportunities for resilience
    Paper of the Month - May 2021
    NIEHS-funded researchers observed an increase in respiratory disease and other hospitalizations among older adults following exposure to tropical cyclones, which may help hospitals become better prepared in the future. Tropical cyclone is a generic term used to describe tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes.
