(Brown University) A large new study based on Medicaid data identifies a clear trend of people staying on their HIV medications longer than they used to.
(University of Huddersfield) THE completion of a £3.5 million research facility means that the University of Huddersfield is established as one of Europe's leading centres for the use of ion beams as a tool for the investigation of issues ranging from nuclear technology and nanoparticles to semiconductors and the effects of radiation exposure on materials in space.
(University of Strathclyde) The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier -- by many orders of magnitude -- has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) In a new study, Argonne chemist Max Delferro boosted and analyzed the unprecedented catalytic activity of an element called vanadium for hydrogenation -- a reaction that is used for making everything from vegetable oils to petrochemical products to vitamins.
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Study takes step toward mass-producible quantum computers.
(Université de Genève) Swiss scientists from the University of Geneva, Switzerland, and the University of Basel have created artificial viruses that can be used to target cancer. These designer viruses alert the immune system and cause it to send killer cells to help fight the tumor. Show More Summary
(Tufts University) Changing natural electrical signaling in non-neural cells improves innate immune response to bacterial infections and injury. Tadpoles that received therapeutics, including those used in humans for other purposes, which depolarized their cells had higher survival rates when infected with E. Show More Summary
(University of California - San Diego) In a small, randomized Phase I/II clinical trial (SAT1), researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine say a 100-year-old drug called suramin, originally developed to treat...Show More Summary
(Ohio State University) For the first time in history, astronomers have been able to watch as a dying star was reborn as a black hole. It went out with a whimper instead of a bang.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Astronomers have watched as a massive, dying star was likely reborn as a black hole.
(The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)) A research team led by Professor YongKeun Park of the Physics Department at KAIST has developed an optical manipulation technique that can freely control the position, orientation, and shape of microscopic samples having complex shapes.
(Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University) Researchers simulate quantum necklace-like structures in superfluids.
(American Association for the Advancement of Science) Researchers have identified a subgroup of neurons in the mouse brain that, upon activation, immediately prompt binge-like eating.
(James Cook University) Every day 12 Australian diabetics have a limb amputated because of a non-healing wound. Globally, it's one every 30 seconds. A molecule produced by a Thai liver parasite could be the solution to those non-healing...Show More Summary
(Kanazawa University) A ring-shaped molecule based on pillararene conjugated with benzoquinone has been developed, the powder of which selectively captures n-alkane gas molecule by host-guest complexation but not branched or cyclic alkane molecule. Show More Summary
(University of Delaware) A team of researchers from the University of Delaware have discovered how to label and light the sugar backbone of a bacterial cell wall. The findings will advance immune system research.
(University of California - Santa Barbara) Geophysicist Zachary Eilon developed a new technique to investigate the underwater volcanoes that produce Earth's tectonic plates
(University of California - San Diego) Nanoengineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first printed battery that is flexible, stretchable and rechargeable. The zinc batteries could be used to power everything from wearable sensors to solar cells and other kinds of electronics. The work appears in the April 19, 2017 issue of Advanced Energy Materials.
(University of Michigan) Researchers at the University of Michigan, Stanford University and biotech company ConfometRx have captured the first cryo-electron microscopy snapshots of a key cellular receptor in action.
(University of Missouri-Columbia) Researchers from the University of Missouri have found evidence of specific neurochemical changes associated with lower neuronal health in these brain regions. Further, they report that some of these changes in the brain may persist in individuals who receive hand transplants, despite their recovered hand function.
