Description One of the world’s largest research-funding charities has revoked a £3.5-million (US$4.5-million) grant awarded to a top cancer geneticist, Nazneen Rahman, following allegations that she bullied scientists and other staff when she worked at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) in London. The decision to pull the funding represents the first implementation of a pioneering anti-bullying and anti-harassment policy that the charity — the Wellcome Trust in London — introduced in June. In a statement announcing the sanctions against Rahman, Wellcome says that it has updated its policy in the wake of the case — and reveals that “the ICR’s independent investigation deemed some of the allegations serious enough to warrant consideration at a disciplinary hearing”. Wellcome adds that Rahman resigned following the investigation, and that the disciplinary hearing did not take place. The ICR has not publicly released the results of its investigation — nor had it previously made public that it had carried out an investigation into Rahman’s behaviour.

Description Since its founding in 2003, Tesla has been one of most intriguing tech properties in the world. It’s been touted as more than just a car company, with a promise to accelerate the world’s transition into sustainable energy. That promise can only be fulfilled if Tesla can push through its current problems. CEO and co-founder Elon Musk has been credited with the rise of Tesla, but 2018 has been a bumpy year for him. From massive losses, claims of sabotage, and swipes against the media to a possibility of the company going private, it’s hard to predict what’s next. Now the SEC has reportedly served Tesla with a subpoena after Musk tweeted that he was considering privatization.

About 50% of people with severe asthma have too many eosinophils in their lungs. Eosinophils are white blood cells, which are a normal part of the immune system. Eosinophils can cause airway inflammation for some people with severe asthma, which can lead to asthma symptoms and attacks.

Description In makeshift labs around the country, a ragtag community of tinkerers has taken it upon itself to democratize medicine, disseminate knowledge, and conduct self-experiments not yet sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration. Gene therapy is a tool for the masses, they say, not an elitist treatment confined to clinics. EpiPen prices too high? Fine, here’s a DIY EpiPencil. When medications aren’t available for everyone, they don’t just whine about it — they try to make their own in mason jars. Some outsiders worry that the movement has gotten out of hand, as theatrical firebrands perform stunts, sometimes just for the sake of provocation. But even people within the DIY medicine scene have begun to check the rearview, pump the brakes, and reconsider their route. We got in touch with a few figures in the field (including a biohacker, pharmahacker, and two bioethicists) and had a chat about the risks and rewards of DIY medicine — from unsanctioned gene therapy to medication made on the kitchen counter. These conversations have been edited and condensed for clarity.
