The value of MRI can be dramatically increased by making its output more quantitative so that images become maps of important tissue properties. To help achieve those goals, the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) in collaboration with NIBIB recently launched a unique service that provides MRI research centers and clinics with access to NIST-traceable reference standards.

As race season approaches, many runners have the same goal: go faster. But researchers now show that speeding up might require defying our natural biology. By combining data from runners monitored in a lab along with 37,000 runs recorded on wearable fitness trackers, scientists have found that humans' natural tendency is to run at a speed that conserves caloric loss -- something that racers seeking to shave time off their miles will have to overcome.

As the number of Covid-19 cases grows in the United States, experts wonder if the country fully understands the current threat from the pandemic. As the use of at-home Covid-19 tests rises, so does the concern that most of those test results go unreported, leading to an undercount of the true number of Covid-19 cases across the country.

An NIH-funded team at Cornell University has developed a compound delivered into the nose that blocked a protein used by SARS-CoV-2 to get into cells and prevented severe infection in mice. Antiviral drugs that target host cells may work against many existing and future variants of the virus that causes COVID-19. Source: NIH Research Matters

Researchers have discovered a molecular switch involved in controlling the transition from normal tissue repair to incomplete, or permanent, damage. The NIH-supported researchers also suggest a possible drug candidate to control this switch and slow the progression of chronic kidney disease. Source: NIH Director's Blog
