(Cornell University) What makes quasicrystals so interesting? Their unusual structure. A Cornell lab has joined scientists pursuing this relatively new area of study.
A new clinical trial led by investigators at NewYork-Presbyterian, Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and Weill Cornell Medicine aims to identify and treat what may be a common underlying cause of recurrent strokes.
(Cornell University) Give your medicine a jolt. By using -- electrochemistry -- a technique that combines electricity and chemistry, future pharmaceuticals -- including many of the top prescribed medications in the United States -- soon may be easily scaled up to be manufactured in a more sustainable way.
Agencies and officials in the City of Ithaca sent similar messages to the community after an incoming Cornell University student drowned near Ithaca Falls on Saturday – stay out of the water when visiting the beautiful gorges in the area. Winston Perez-Ventura, 17, a native of the Dominican Republic who resided in the Bronx, entered [...]
A Bronx teenager who fulfilled his dream of being accepted to an Ivy League school drowned before he was set to start at Cornell University.
(Cornell University) By learning how a recently discovered immune cell works in the body, researchers hope to one day harness the cells to better treat allergies and infections, according to new Cornell University research.
The US Corn Belt and European maize owe their existence to a historic change: the ability of this plant, originally from the tropics, to flower early enough to avoid winter. Research led by Cornell University in New York and the MaxShow More Summary
I began medical school, like many of my peers, with some experience working with patients. I worked as a volunteer EMT with Cornell University EMS for four years during my undergraduate years; shadowed a cardiologist and an anesthesiologist through Cornell’s Urban Summer program at NYP Hospital–Cornell and worked with patients during Global Medical Brigade trips […]
(Cornell University) One of the goals of personalized medicine is to be able to determine which treatment would work best by sequencing a patient's genome. New research from the lab of Yimon Aye, assistant professor of chemistry and chemical biology, could help make that approach a reality.
(Cornell University) As neuroscientists examine challenging questions about the complexities of the central nervous system, new tools to be developed at Cornell University will provide them with an unprecedented glimpse into the inner workings of the brain thanks to a five-year, $9 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
(Cornell University) There is no disputing that the use of bisphosphonates -- with brand names such as Fosamax, Boniva and Reclast -- is proven to combat bone loss and fragility fractures in millions of osteoporosis patients for whom a fracture could be debilitating, even life-threatening.
Cornell University food scientists have found that people with a diminished ability to taste food choose sweeter - and likely higher-calorie - fare. This could put people on the path to gaining weight.
For the first time, Cornell University researchers are using imaging capabilities at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) to explore how copper affects plant fertility. The work could provide key insights into how plants can be bred for better performance in marginal soils.
(Cornell University) A Cornell University sociologist and former elementary school teacher recently identified a mechanism that may explain why these kids whose parents have spent time behind bars, have worse educational outcomes -- and strong, lasting, negative consequences that often span generations.
(Cornell University) For the first time, Cornell University researchers are using imaging capabilities at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS) to explore how copper affects plant fertility. The work could provide key insights into how plants can be bred for better performance in marginal soils.
(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.
(Cornell University) After a century of markets dominated by a few types of wheat and white flour, ancient and heritage wheat varieties are making a comeback. Restaurants and bakeries that promote organic and local agriculture have sprouted...Show More Summary
(Cornell University) Cornell University chemists have uncovered a fresh role for nitric oxide that could send biochemical textbooks back for revision.
(Cornell University) A new theoretical study examines for the first time the limits of geckos' gripping ability in natural contexts.
(Cornell University) Notorious financier Bernie Madoff bilked more than 10,000 investors out of billions of dollars in the 1990s and 2000s in the largest financial fraud in US history. After the fraud was discovered, people who knewShow More Summary
