A specific group of fungi residing in the intestines can protect against intestinal injury and influence social behavior, according to new preclinical research by scientists at Weill Cornell Medicine. The findings extend a growing body of work identifying a "gut-immunity-brain axis," a signaling system that may have a wide range of effects on physiology in both health and disease, influenced not only by the body's own cells but also the resident microbes.The study, published Feb. 16 in Cell, reveals a novel set of molecular signals connecting fungi in the gut to their host’s cells throughout...

Dear Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Family, As you may have heard, the blood supply in New York City is at a crisis level and it is National Blood Donor Month. Due to the pandemic, and the inability to host blood drives, the New York City Blood Center currently has a 1-2 day supply. Within transfusion medicine, there are daily discussions as to the ability to supply elective surgeries with blood products. Close to 2000 donations are needed each day in the NY/NJ community for patients who require a lifesaving blood and/or platelet transfusion. In addition to using restrictive blood...

Clinical laboratories are unsung heroes of COVID-19In normal times, clinical laboratories, including pathologists, laboratory directors and clinical laboratory scientists, function in the background. We are not patient facing but provide important diagnostic tools and insights to our partner physicians and nurses. In a war analogy, we are the code breakers that support the front-line troops. Pathology is detective work, investigating the best test, understanding regulations, and figuring out the diagnosis in a timely manner. COVID-19 thrust laboratory professionals into the unknown with an...
