Cilia: 'The bouncer' of bacteria

(University of Southern California) New paper by USC Viterbi School of Engineering Professor Eva Kanso and Professor Margaret McFall-Ngai of the Pacific Biosciences Research Center at the University of Hawaii elucidates the active role of cilia in regulating flow for bacteria filtering and enhancing chemical communication

Cilia: 'The bouncer' of bacteria

Imagine a club scene—a bouncer at a velvet rope selects which individuals get into the club. This, explains Eva Kanso, a professor of mechanical engineering at USC Viterbi School of Engineering, is what cilia do in an organism. Kanso...Show More Summary

USC Study: Hollywood's Huge Gender Imbalance, In Numbers

2 months agoArts : Modern Art Notes

"At USC's Viterbi School of Engineering Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab (SAIL), Shrikanth Narayanan, the Niki and C.L. Max Nikias Chair in Engineering, and a team of researchers used automated software to analyze the sophistication of language and character interaction in nearly 1,000 scripts, poring over 53,000 dialogues between 7,000 characters. What they found was […]

How central are female characters to a movie?

A new study from the USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab (SAIL)—which creates automatic tools for signal analysis and linguistic assessment —uncovers how media communicates about gender, race and age finding that in the majority of films, females roles are not central to the plot.

USC Viterbi researchers develop new class of optoelectronic materials

(University of Southern California) Researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering have pioneered a new class of semiconductor materials that might enhance the functionality of optoelectronic devices and solar panels -- perhaps even using one hundred times less material than the commonly used silicon.

Color-changing smart material sensor to alert user to get out of sun

(University of Southern California) A researcher at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering has developed a color-changing wearable that can notify users of their total ultraviolet radiation exposure. The wearable allows people to achieve a balance: They can get Vitamin D without getting sunburnt and becoming more at-risk for skin cancer.
