Many were former students who recalled acts of kindness during Beck’s nearly 30-year career: $20 given to a kid who was broke, textbooks bought for a student whose parents were going through bankruptcy, a spot cleared to sleep on Beck’s living room floor. But few knew about Beck’s final gesture of generosity. The 59-year-old had agreed to a “rapid autopsy,” a procedure conducted within hours ...

Mesothelioma Research Results Offer Potential Route to Earlier Detection
Cancer experts have known for decades that asbestos causes mesothelioma. Yet, only 2 to 10 percent of people with prolonged asbestos exposure are diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma, the most common type of the disease. Researchers want to know how the disease actually happens, and what this may tell us about why some people exposed to asbestos develop the disease while others do not. The latest results from the Shukla Research Lab at the pathology and laboratory medicine department at the University of Vermont have shed light on the precise steps for how asbestos fibers lead to mesothelioma. The newly described pathway fr...
