Professor receives grant to identify genes that keep HIV latent
One of the biggest challenges to discovering a cure for the human immunodeficiency virus is when the disease becomes dormant -- hidden and inactive within the human body. Modern therapy can practically wipe out the virus, but stores of latent HIV soon become active and multiply all over again.

Iowa State physicists win W.M. Keck Foundation grant to develop nanoscope
Iowa State's Jigang Wang is leading an effort to develop a new kind of microscope called a 'nanoscope.' The new tool will allow researchers to study materials at scales that are ultrafast, ultrasmall and at very low frequencies. That could help researchers discover and manipulate materials and material functions. The W.M. Keck Foundation of Los Angeles is supporting the project with a three-year, $1.3 million grant.

RIT undergraduates build star-tracking instrument for NASA research rockets
A team of Rochester Institute of Technology undergraduates are building a star tracker that will fly on a NASA technology demonstration mission in December. The compass-like instrument will test a cryogenic detector in the payload of a suborbital rocket. Cryogenic temperatures can reduce dark current in the sensor and increase instrument sensitivity. The new technology could improve NASA's deep-space cameras. The NASA-funded project is led by RIT professor Michael Zemcov in the Center for Detectors.
