A team of researchers from Denmark has solved one of the biggest challenges in making effective nanoelectronics based on graphene; the new results have just been published in Nature Nanotechnology
Takashi D. Y. Kozai's lab examines the use of the photoelectric effect on untethered implanted devices to mitigate the damage done by current implant technology
Cellular barcoding has been used to tag, track and pinpoint cells responsible for the spread of breast cancer
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Down syndrome is the most common birth defect, occurring once in every 700 births. However, traditional non-invasive prenatal tests for the condition are unreliable or carry risks for the mother and fetus. Now, researchers have developed a...
High-performance computing helps researchers understand experiments for observing real-time motion of lithium atoms in bi-layer graphene, paving the way for designing new materials for batteries and other electronics.
Argonne researchers are modeling and simulating how connected and autonomous vehicles could affect energy and mobility in metropolitan areas.
Researchers have developed an intelligent system for "tuning" powered prosthetic knees, allowing patients to walk comfortably with the prosthetic device in minutes, rather than the hours necessary if the device is tuned by a trained clinical practitioner.
Two newly developed methods will help researchers to study the 3D structure of complex surfaces and of individual neurons better than ever before. Sebastian Munck and Natalia Gunko, two expert technologists at VIB-KU Leuven, report new imaging protocols that will advance neuroscience and (bio)imagin...
In rat models, the novel scaffolding mimicked natural anatomy and boosted stem cell-based treatment; the approach is scalable to humans and advances effort toward clinical trials
Using DNA origami - DNA-based design of precise nanostructures - scientists at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, in collaboration with researchers at University of Oslo, Norway, have been able to demonstrate the most accurate distance between densely packed antigens in order to get the strongest bond t...
This is the first time researchers have directly visualized, at the molecular level, a structure that is triggered in response to a cellular signal--a key finding that expands our understanding of how cells move.
