(Georgia State University) A local start-up, life sciences company founded by Dr. Jenny Yang, Regents' Professor of Biochemistry at Georgia State University, has received a $2 million federal grant to develop improved magnetic resonance...Show More Summary
(Human Factors and Ergonomics Society) More than 130 concurrent sessions will cover a variety of topics representing the wide-reaching impact of HF/E research and practice in areas affecting human performance and safety at home, work, and leisure. Show More Summary
(Harvard Medical School) New study explains previously mysterious characteristics of ribosomes, the protein production factories of the cell. Researchers mathematically demonstrate that ribosomes are precisely structured to build themselves as quickly as possible to support efficient cell growth.
(Wiley) Vodka tastes different from brandy, and connoisseurs can distinguish among different brands of whiskeys. The flavors of spirits result from a complex bouquet of volatile compounds. New colorimetric sensor arrays on disposable...Show More Summary
(Vanderbilt University) A new electrochemical energy harvesting device developed at Vanderbilt University can generate electrical current from the full range of human motions and is thin enough to embed in clothing.
(Cornell University) With the introduction of CBETA, the Cornell-Brookhaven ERL Test Accelerator, Cornell University and Brookhaven National Laboratory scientists are following up on the concept of energy-recovering particle accelerators first introduced by physicist Maury Tigner at Cornell more than 50 years ago.
(Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) Ion channels in the membrane vesicles that mediate intracellular protein transport play a crucial role in cell physiology. A method developed by an Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich team now allows them to be studied with greater specificity than ever before.
(University of Freiburg) Biochemists from the University of Freiburg have elucidated the structure of an enzyme that supplies carotenoid.
(Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati) A web that passes through infinite intergalactic spaces, a dense cosmic forest illuminated by very distant lights and a huge enigma to solve. These are the picturesque ingredients of...Show More Summary
(Bentham Science Publishers) However, a new research mind has to emerge in our minds from recent research article 'The Relationship Between Green Building and Regional Economy: A Case Study in Guangdong, China,' published in The Open Civil Engineering Journal.
(University of Edinburgh) Studies of naturally carbonated mineral water have given scientists insight on how to locate hot water springs -- potential sources of sustainable geothermal energy.
(University of Science and Technology of China) Scientists got a breakthrough in polycyclic aromatic compounds in the process of coal formation.
(Elhuyar Fundazioa) Tecnalia has set up a new 3-D Laser Scanning Service for applications in the naval sector; it allows companies in the sector to obtain mass measurements of large-sized volumes with great accuracy and resolution.
(Frontiers) A study of the 100 most-cited neuroscience articles has revealed that 78 of these papers cover five topics, including neurological disorders, the prefrontal cortex, brain connectivity, brain mapping and methodology studies. The study allows scientists, policy-makers and investors to quickly identify the most-cited articles and impactful research in neuroscience.
(RIKEN) By means of precision measurements on a single proton, scientists have been able to improve the precision of the measurement of the mass of the proton by a factor of three and also corrected the existing value, finding it is significantly lighter than previously believed.
