Researchers identify gated-intermediary neuron system which acts as synaptic cloaking device. Thoughts health innovators?

Neuroscientists believe that the connectome, a map of each and every connection between the millions of neurons in the brain, will provide a blueprint that will allow them to link brain anatomy to brain function. But a new study from Carnegie Mellon…

Researchers investigate how form affects function and aggregation of tau protein in the brain. Thoughts health innovators?

A unique class of proteins in the human body has the ability to alter their configuration. These so-named intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) lack a fixed or ordered three-dimensional structure, which can be influenced by exposure to various…

Researchers identify protein responsible for post-viral asthma in young children. Thoughts health innovators?

Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) have linked a specific protein to the development of post-viral infection asthma, which is the first step in generating a novel type of asthma therapy designed to prevent development of post-viral…

Small loop in human prion protein shown to prevent chronic wasting disease. Thoughts health innovators?

Chronic wasting disease (CWD), an infectious disease caused by prions, affects North American elk and deer, but has not been observed in humans. Using a mouse model that expresses an altered form of the normal human prion protein, researchers led by the…

New imaging technique successfully detects Peripheral Arterial Disease in diabetic patients in pilot study. Thoughts health innovators?

Approximately 8 to 12 million people in the United States alone are suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a common vascular problem that is caused by narrowing of the arteries as a result of plaque buildup. The plaque accumulation leads to an…

Researchers identify the mechanism cystic fibrosis uses to thicken mucus in the lungs. Thoughts health innovators?

A team led by UC San Francisco has discovered why mucus in the lungs of people with cystic fibrosis (CF) is thick, sticky and difficult to cough up, leaving these patients more vulnerable to lung infection.  The team found that in CF, contrary to previous…

Previously unknown effect of vitamin A on embryonic development identified. Thoughts health innovators?

The signal molecule, retinoic acid, is a product of vitamin A which helps to instruct how different types of tissue are to be formed in the growing embryo. For the first time, researchers from the Lund University have studied the effects of retinoic acid…

Researchers map epigenetic pathways linked to cystic fibrosis disease severity. Thoughts health innovators?

Mutation of one gene is all it takes to get cystic fibrosis (CF), but disease severity depends on many other genes and proteins. For the first time, researchers at the UNC School of Medicine have identified genetic pathways,  or clusters of genes, that…

Story
Introduction

Founder of healthinnovations and the health innovator community. Michelle Petersen has worked in the health and science industry for over 21 years which includes tenure in the NHS and Oxford University.  She has also worked closely with big pharma & academia on events to further both drug research and drug portfolios, helping to market and gather data for various disciplines. 

A medical journalist, Michelle Petersen is ranked in the top 10 percentile of global healthcare KOL’s worldwide.  She is the original founder of healthinnovations, a community, a brand and the first to break news in innovations in health, medical research and pharma.

Healthinnovations is the industry standard for innovation in healthcare and can be found on multiple platforms. 

The aim of Healthinnovations is to bring all sectors of health and ehealth together to further innovation. Whether it be mhealth, healthit, medicine, neuroscience or any other medical sector they can all hamper innovation and the evolution of science if they are not researched or left unimproved.

Healthinnovations is now an established part of the global medical community system of whitepaper validation and verification; a virtual research project highway reaching every corner of the globe.

Healthinnovations helping to further innovations in global Healthcare, to further innovation in all of us.
