The New Jersey Innovation Institute, an NJIT corporation that applies the intellectual and technological resources of the state's science and technology university to challenges identified by industry partners, has announced that Hackensack University Medical Center (HackensackUMC) has become the first health-care charter member of NJII and a partner in its Healthcare Delivery Systems Innovation Lab (iLab). HackensackUMC will also have a seat on the iLab's advisory board.
In a twist of geometry, an oval can make a line. The new algae raceway testing facility at Sandia National Laboratories may be oval in shape, but it paves a direct path between laboratory research and solving the demand for clean energy.
Last year, more new drugs reached the market than in any year since 1996. But many have six-figure price tags for a year's worth of treatment and deliver only incremental health benefits. What does this mean for patients and the pharmaceutical industry? The cover story in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, parses the 2015 crop of therapies and who might benefit.
A research team led by Assistant Professor Duong Hai Minh from the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Faculty of Engineering, has achieved a world's first by successfully converting paper waste into green cellulose aerogels that are non-toxic, ultralight, flexible, extremely strong and water repellent. This novel material is ideal for applications such as oil spill cleaning, heat insulation as well as packaging, and it can potentially be used as coating materials for drug delivery and as smart materials for various biomedical applications.
Cell Applications Inc. and Cyfuse Biomedical K.K. have announced that advanced tissue-engineering services are now available in North America using a groundbreaking new three-dimensional (3-D) bioprinting approach called the 'Kenzan Method.'

Just a bit bigger than a box of cereal, one of the first CubeSats to travel in interplanetary space will be NASA's miniature space science station, dedicated to studying the dynamic particles and magnetic fields that stream from the sun.
The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) will join The Africa-America Institute (AAI) and the East African Development Bank (EADB) as an institutional partner in a new scholarship program that will enable experienced teachers and lecturers to earn postgraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at the university to help build a skilled workforce in STEM fields in East Africa.
A newly upgraded camera that incorporates light sensors developed at the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is now one of the best cameras on the planet for studying outer space at red wavelengths that are too red for the human eye to see.
NASA announced that a miniature solar particle research spacecraft to be built by Southwest Research Institute® (SwRI) will launch aboard NASA's Exploration Mission 1 (EM-1) rocket in 2018.
