Marion Smits speaks on TikTok, open access and all things ECR
This may come as a surprise given her academic credentials and reputation for high-quality peer-reviewed scientific research, but Dr. Marion Smits, PhD, is a big fan of TikTok.

Early Detection Tests for Mesothelioma Are in Development
Scientists in Australia are developing early detection tests for mesothelioma. The Asbestos and Dust Diseases Research Institute’s new test could potentially save lives.

These new tests can find small amounts of DNA that cause disease. The PCR method, used since the 1980s, allows DNA samples to be studied in a higher level of detail. PCR is the tech behind the beginning of the 1990 Human Genome Project to identify and map human DNA.  “We have identified a...
