Researchers from North Carolina State University have modeled and analyzed the binding modes of 210 molecules previously reported to inhibit the function of a family of enzymes involved in regulating salt and blood pressure in the human body. Show More Summary
(North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed computer models to improve the ability of food banks to feed as many people as possible, as equitably as possible, while reducing food waste.
(North Carolina State University) Researchers have demonstrated a technique that can determine whether bricks -- the common building material -- have ever been near a radiological source, and identify the specific type of source, such as high enriched uranium or plutonium.
(North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed a new technique that allows them to print circuits on flexible, stretchable substrates using silver nanowires. The advance makes it possible to integrate the material into a wide array of electronic devices.
Scientists at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University have developed an injectable polymer hydrogel that breaks down in response to reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced by tumor cells. During its controlled degradation, the hydrogel releases a chemotherapeutic drug and an immunotherapy to kill surrounding tumor cells. Show More Summary
(University of North Carolina Health Care) Scientists at the UNC School of Medicine and NC State have created an injectable gel-like scaffold that can hold combination chemo-immunotherapeutic drugs and deliver them locally to tumors in a sequential manner. Show More Summary
(North Carolina State University) Research finds that altruism -- and social media -- can help corporations cultivate trust with consumers on mobile devices during and after natural disasters, such as hurricanes.
(North Carolina State University) A large-scale study shows mixed results for hypothesis on how plants deal with climate change.
(North Carolina State University) Lead magnesium niobate (PMN) is a prototypical "relaxor" material, used in a wide variety of applications, from ultrasound to sonar. Researchers have now used state-of-the-art microscopy techniques to see exactly how atoms are arranged in PMN - and it's not what anyone expected.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed the first unmanned, fixed-wing aircraft that is capable of traveling both through the air and under the water – transitioning repeatedly between sky and sea. The EagleRay...Show More Summary
(North Carolina State University) About 70 percent of pharmaceuticals are manufactured using palladium-driven catalytic processes that are either fast or efficient -- but not both. Researchers have now developed a green chemistry method that combines aspects of both processes to improve efficiency at a minimal cost of processing time.
Nuisance pest into medically important threat? A North Carolina State University study shows that histamine levels are substantially higher in homes infested by bed bugs than in pest-free homes, and that these histamine levels persist for months - even if the bed bugs have been eliminated from the home.
New research findings could turn perceptions of the already despised bed bug from nuisance pest into medically important threat. A study from North Carolina State University shows that histamine levels are substantially higher in homes...Show More Summary
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new technique that uses existing technologies to detect potential airborne radiological materials in hours instead of days.
(North Carolina State University) An international team of researchers has discovered a new quantitative relation that allows for quick identification of promising material combinations for organic solar cells. The discovery could significantly reduce the 'trial and error' aspect of solar cell production by reducing the time spent on finding the most efficient mixtures.
North Carolina State University has put out a news article about some recent work by Erin McKenney, who is studying the gut microbiome of lemurs: “Can You Guess Which Species Has the Most Gut Microbes?”. The article has some statistics...Show More Summary
(North Carolina State University) Advances in recent years allow forensic practitioners to use bone mineral density to extract more information from human remains -- but many forensic experts are unfamiliar with the techniques and technology. Show More Summary

DENVER/January 29, 2018 - Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers from Cornell University and North Carolina State University found that stem cell function can be enhanced through manipulation of their culture environment, and that "priming" prior to patient administration could optimize their therapeutic potential.
