Hand transplantations could become much more practical to apply for patients who lost one or both hands with successfull tests of a new method for local immunosuppression, achieved by researchers at Inselspital and the University of Bern, Switzerland.
While it might not surprise, there is now science behind it: consumers who buy brands to stand out may actually be trying to fit in, according to a new study in the Journal of Consumer Research.
A completely autonomous quadcopter has been designed at the Vienna University of Technology, with a low-cost smartphone providing computing power and functionality like imaging.
Researchers at the University of Georgia are developing a new treatment technique that uses nanoparticles to reprogram immune cells so they are able to recognize and attack cancer.
The ability to control nanoscale imperfections in superconducting wires results in materials with unparalleled and customized performance, according to a new study from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
A Rice University laboratory has improved upon its ability to determine molecular structures in three dimensions in ways that challenge long-used standards.
Clad in Russian Orlan spacesuits, Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin opened the hatch to the Pirs docking compartment to begin their spacewalk at 10:39 a.m. EDT.

Computer science researchers have developed a technique to determine which strategies give players an edge at winning in multi-player (action) real-time strategy (ARTS) games, such as Defense of the Ancients (DotA), Warcraft III and Starcraft II.
M. xanthus cells are connected by an arrangement of chain-like membranes, made up of spherical organelles called vesicles. Scientists initially thought vesicles drifted around randomly until they were encountered by another M. xanthus cell.
Ottawa researchers have developed unique virus-derived particles that can kill human blood cancer cells in the laboratory and eradicate the disease in mice with few side effects.
We might be one step closer to an Internet-of-things reality. University of Washington engineers have created a new wireless communication system that allows devices to interact with each other without relying on batteries or wires for power.
