While the use of making in participatory co-design is common, I argue for the benefits that making-led participatory co-design can bring to two fields where its use is rare: early-stage innovation and

Referred to as the ‘forgotten causalities’ of climate change (Cutter 1995), very few studies have examined the precise nature and magnitude of climate change impacts on children, let alone on the g

Interesting paper that demonstrates the significant advantages of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) compared to other methods such as serological tests and PCR to detect the hepatitis B virus. LAMP assay provided significant amplification time of less than 15 minutes compared with over 1 hour for PCR.

The CD research community, led by the CDCN, recently proposed 4 candidate etiologic drivers of iMCD pathogenesis: iMCD may be due to (A) self-reactive antibodies, (B) germline mutations in genes regulating inflammation, (C) acquired oncogenic mutations, o
This article ties to SDG 3. This clinical review article, published in Hematology/Oncology Clinics, presents current understanding of the pathogenesis for each subtype of CD as of 2017. Although understanding of CD has slowly improved over the last 6 decades, leading to improved patient survival and quality of life, additional research is needed. The authors anticipate significant progress to be made in the coming years through research studies led by the CDCN, including the ACCELERATE (Advancing Castleman Care with an Electronic Longitudinal registry, E-Repository, And Treatment/Effectiveness research) Natural History Registry (www.CDCN.org/ACCELERATE), which is open for patient self-enrollment.
