Trinity researchers have unearthed a potential new weapon in the fight against cancer, after they discovered how cancers trick our immune system into helping rather than harming them.

It turns out that certain cancers 're-wire' a biological molecule that acts as a messenger in the body. Normally this molecule orders cells to die, but after it has been re-wired, it essentially sends a...

Geographer, Dr Mary Bourke, recently published an amazing piece of research that pinpoints a valley on Mars that seemingly held water in the past.

This location is therefore a prime spot for future missions charged with looking for evidence of past life on the Red Planet.

Using satellite imagery, Dr Bourke spotted a tell-tale pattern on Mars' surface that appears in desert dunes on Earth...

Did you know that researchers are currently attempting to design and test vaccines to prevent or treat a range of cancers, autoimmune diseases, Alzheimer's disease, whooping cough and even drug addiction?

Vaccines are incredible, life-saving creations, but due to side effects -- and some unproven claims linking them to debilitating conditions -- a number of myths persist...

Trinity geneticists have isolated a number of 'Goldilocks' genes that seem to hold clues to a plethora of human diseases.

The team found that certain sections of our genomes that are duplicated or deleted are associated with conditions like ADHD, epilepsy and schizophrenia. If you have too many or too few genes within these sections, things go awry.

The challenge now, is to pinpoint the...

What does an albatross have in common with a hyena and a long-extinct death-eater bat? The short answer is that it is an expert scavenger, surviving and thriving by stealing carrion.

So how has evolution produced three such different looking animals that all use similar tactics to get ahead in the game of life? According to researchers, there are some key biological traits that build a...

Trinity geneticists, in collaboration with an international team, have helped to fill in more gaps of human history.

In two separate studies, they analysed ancient DNA found in human remains dating back some 5,000 -- 8,000 years ago. In both cases, some surprising secrets were locked in those genetic codes.

Firstly, they found that certain modern East Asian populations still bear a...
