Trump’s Pick to Run 2020 Census Has Defended Racial Gerrymandering and Voter Suppression Laws

In June 2011, the North Carolina legislature hired Thomas Brunell, a professor of political science at the University of Texas at Dallas, to produce a report that would help defend the state’s new redistricting maps. The maps, approved by the Republican-controlled legislature, concentrated black voters, who tended to vote Democratic, into as few districts as possible in […]

Moth females use scent proximity to attract mates

Metal printing offers low-cost way to make flexible, stretchable electronics

(North Carolina State University) Researchers have developed a new technique for directly printing metal circuits, creating flexible, stretchable electronics. The technique can use multiple metals and substrates and is compatible with existing manufacturing systems that employ direct printing technologies.

Study suggests dangerous crop fungus produces toxic chemical to repel insects

A team of researchers from Cornell and North Carolina State University has conducted a study examining a possible connection between a toxin produced by a crop-damaging fungus and insects that may attempt to feed on it. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the group describes their study and what they found.

Tiny bilirubin-filled capsules could improve survival of transplanted pancreatic cells

(North Carolina State University) By encapsulating bilirubin within tiny nanoparticles, researchers from North Carolina State University and the Ohio State University have improved the survival rates of pancreatic islet cells in vitro in a low-oxygen environment. The work has implications for the treatment of Type 1 diabetes in both canine and human patients.

Thermally activated delayed photoluminescence from semiconductor nanocrystals

Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that the transfer of triplet excitons from nanomaterials to molecules also creates a feedback mechanism that returns some energy to the nanocrystal, causing it to photoluminesce on long time scales. Show More Summary

What keeps stem cells in their undifferentiated state?

(University of North Carolina Health Care) UNC-Chapel Hill scientists found that a special cluster of proteins helps unwind DNA during cell division and plays a key role in keeping stem cells in their immature state. This UNC School of Medicine study also points to a better understanding of how cancer cells manage to sustain rapid cell division without triggering cell death.
