Thomas Stocker, the co-chair of IPCC WG1, has been discussed previously on this blog. On 26th November he gave a talk at Imperial College on the messages from the AR5 WG1 report. The headline of the write-up is “Act now … Continue reading ?
A team from Imperial College London has developed a process for turning landfill waste into bioplastic. The team of students says the healthcare industry could use the bioplastic to make syringes and other disposable devices used in hospitals. They have also developed a method for breaking down the bioplastic so that it can be easily […]
"Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and former drugs advisor to the U.K. government, said the drug would be consumed as a cocktail drink and targets neurotransmitters in the brain to mimic the pleasurable effects...Show More Summary
Men who are unemployed for more than two years show signs of faster ageing in their DNA, a new study has found. Researchers at Imperial College London and the University of Oulu, Finland studied DNA samples from 5,620 men and women born in Finland in 1966. read more
Professor David Nutt, a Former Government drug advisor, and his team at Imperial College London are developing a drug that will mimic alcohol's "positive" effects on the brain without hangovers or addictive qualities. If only we'd realized sooner that consequences, not poor judgement and impaired reflexes, are the problem with too much drinking.
New research out of the UK finds that solar cells actually enjoy improved efficiency when exposed to the pounding beats of today's pop and rock music. According to researchers from Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London, the high frequencies
Playing pop and rock music improves the performance of solar cells, according to new research from scientists at Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London. The high frequencies and pitch found in pop and rock musicShow More Summary
Several Boreno marbled cats, also called bay cats, were captured on film in a Boreno rainforest. Scientists with the Zoological Society of London and Imperial College London said they captured photos of four rare cat species. Three of the species are in danger of extinction. Show More Summary
The world's least known cat has been caught on camera in a previously unsurveyed rainforest by scientists from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and Imperial College London. Until now, the bay cat (Pardofelis badia) had been recorded...Show More Summary

A team of researchers at Imperial College London has found that attaching an array of cylindrical aluminum studs on top of a solar cell can dramatically improve the amount of light trapped inside its absorbing layer, leading to electrical...Show More Summary
Mimicking the iconic design of Lego blocks, an international team of scientists discovered a better way to harvest the sun's energy. Researchers from Imperial College London and collaborators in Belgium, China and Japan created 22% more efficient solar panels by covering their surface with tiny aluminum studs, which are invisible to the naked eye.

Risks of hospital admissions and deaths from stroke, heart and circulatory disease are higher in areas with high levels of aircraft noise, a study has found. Researchers at Imperial College London and King's College London compared data...Show More Summary
A team of British scientists just took a major stride forward in the quest to develop a universal flu vaccine. Using data gathered after the 2009 swine flu outbreak, the team from the Imperial College London have a game plan to develop a vaccine that stands to save as many as half a million lives every year.

UK scientists believe they have taken a significant step closer to a universal flu vaccine that would protect against all strains of seasonal flu and curb future pandemics. The team, led by researchers at Imperial College London, reports the achievement in Nature Medicine. Show More Summary
Scientists have moved closer to developing a universal flu vaccine after using the 2009 pandemic as a natural experiment to study why some people seem to resist severe illness. Researchers at Imperial College London asked volunteersShow More Summary
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Imperial College London have identified the site where the widely used anesthetic drug propofol binds to receptors in the brain to sedate patients during surgery. Until now, it hasn't been clear how propofol connects with brain cells to induce anesthesia. Show More Summary
