A Breakthrough in Sickle Cell Disease: Sickle cell disease affects many organs but its most devastating symptom is pain caused as a side effect of low oxygen. Now researchers have discovered a breakthrough that, in the laboratory, is able to change that.

Hope for Psoriasis: Psoriasis is a common, inflammatory skin condition that is uncomfortable, itchy, and unsightly. But new treatments in the pipeline may soon be available to patients.

Additional topics covered:

COVID & Alzheimer’s; Food Safety During Power Outages; and Talking to the Unvaccinated.

The Living Minute series is funded by Thermo Fisher’s ReadyCheckGo program which maps out a streamlined protocol for students, K-12, to swab and submit samples for testing each day. Comprehensive K-12 coronavirus testing can be quickly implemented with the Thermo Fisher Scientific ReadyCheckGo testing program. With pooled sampling to keep costs more efficient, swabbing is done quickly by students themselves, and prepaid return shipping to the testing facility, this program is designed to make in-school coronavirus testing an easy reality for students, educators, and parents alike.
