Over the past 60 years the primary aim of doctors has always been to attempt to completely eliminate tumours. However, some tumour cells survive even the most drastic therapies. These can later build up to a second tumour, which may be even more difficult to combat. The limitations of traditional therapy suggest that instead of attempting to eradicate cancer completely, it should rather be kept at bay.
Identification, location and temporal evolution of topics - conference at the Library and Information Centre
From science studies to research evaluation to science policy, there is an increasing need for trustworthy information on how the system of science is organized and evolving, where research fronts are located and so on. The branch of scientometrics called science mapping has developed a wide variety of methods to address such issues.
The inaugural lecture of Marlan O. Scully newly elected honorary member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences will take place at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on 10 October, 2016.
Planet formation, fuel from gases, learning and attention: three Hungarian researchers among the winners of the 2016 ERC Starting Grants
Which areas of the brain cooperate during the process of learning? How can fuels be produced from flue gases? How does the formation of new planets commence in circumstellar disks of dust? The researchers of these subjects have won a considerable amount from the ERC’s Starting Grants call.
The latest issue of The Hungarian Labour Market Yearbook published by MTA KRTK (Centre for Economic and Regional Studies), studies the current migration process from a Hungarian perspective. It discusses the demographic composition of the population migrating from Hungary, the migration of doctors, the schemes encouraging emigrants to return to their home country and also provides an insight into how the appearance of immigrants influences the employment and wage level of workers in the accepting countries.
The inaugural lecture of Lajos Hanzo, newly elected foreign member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences took place at the Academy on the 30th August.
Aims of the conference: The new precision genome editing (PGE) techniques are currently widely discussed as key elements in the new breeding methods serving the agricultural innovation also in Europe. Unfortunately among the EU member states, there is no consensus on the use of GM technology in agricultural practices. The conference will take place between 26-27 September at the palace of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

The first study to investigate how dogs' brains process speech shows that our best friends in the animal kingdom care about both what we say and how we say it. Dogs, like people, use the left hemisphere to process words, a right hemisphere brain region to process intonation, and praising activates dog’s reward center only when both words and intonation match, according to a study in Science.
Fixed nitrogen is probably the main plant nutrient that limits agricultural production worldwide. For most developed countries this limitation can be alleviated by the use of nitrogenous fertilizers. The increased cost of fertilizer nitrogen, concern about nitrates in water supplies, and the limited availability of fertilizer in developing countries are major factors influencing a desire to obtain more fixation by biological means.
