( DOE/National Renewable Energy Laboratory ) Ninety-seven teams from 28 Colorado schools participated in today's car competitions hosted by the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory.The student teams raced solar and lithium ion powered vehicles they designed and built themselves.
( Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard ) The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University announced today that Hansjorrg Wyss, the entrepreneur and philanthropist who enabled the Institute's creation in 2009 with a $125 million gift, has donated a second $125 million gift to the University to further advance the Institute's pioneering work.
( University of Southern California ) Researchers at USC have found that a class of pharmaceuticals can both prevent and treat Alzheimer's disease in mice.
( George Washington University ) The results of a new study led by George Washington University professor Tianshu Li provide direct computational evidence that nucleation of ice in small droplets is strongly size-dependent, an important conclusion in understanding water's behavior at the nanoscale.
( Duke University Medical Center ) An attack on glioblastoma brain tumor cells that uses a modified poliovirus is showing encouraging results in an early study to establish the proper dose level, researchers at Duke Cancer Institute report.
( University of Missouri-Columbia ) Researchers at the University of Missouri have found a way to create radioactive nanoparticles that target lymphoma tumor cells wherever they may be in the body.
( Northwestern University ) Northwestern researchers have developed a novel tool for single-cell transfection, in which they deliver molecules into targeted cells through temporary nanopores in the cell membrane created by a localized electric field.
( Rice University ) Rice University scientists have unveiled a robust new method for arranging metal nanoparticles in geometric patterns that can act as optical processors that transform incoming light signals into output of a different color. The breakthrough by a team of theoretical and applied physicists and engineers at Rice's Laboratory for Nanophotonics is described this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
