How we emerge from the state of #COVID19  lockdowns will drive a new world economy with lasting effects on global #biodiversity , argues this #LetterToScience .

"It isn’t easy to be open about my personal struggles. But I know many academics are in the same boat ... I want them to know they’re not alone." This week's #SciMagWorkingLife :

A transcription factor called IRF5 may be a potential #drug  target to treat #IBD , a group of inflammatory gut conditions that currently have few safe and effective treatment strategies. Findings from @KirOxford , @UniofOxford  in @SciImmunology :

The Science family of journals is gathering its #coronavirus  research papers and commentary in one place: . The page will be updated as new information is available. #COVID19 

In Germany, #COVID19  case growth declined after three social distancing interventions, detectable in each case at a two-week delay, modeling shows. The approach can be adapted to other countries seeking to understand impacts of levels of social distancing.

"Researchers need community because good ideas don’t just come from reading literature and thinking deep thoughts; it’s helpful to bounce ideas off others, particularly in a nonthreatening environment." This week's #SciMagWorkingLife .

Ph.D students suffer from anxiety and #depression  at rates that far exceed the general population. A recent study suggests that mindfulness interventions—a form of exercise for the brain—may help.
