A recent agreement between The University of Texas at Dallas and Lintec of America is expected to propel scientific discoveries from the University's laboratories into the global marketplace and create jobs in North Texas.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency recently selected Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to join a collaborative research team that intends to build the world's first neural system to enable naturalistic feeling and movements in prosthetic hands.
At the Naval Future Force Science and Technology EXPO in Washington D.C., Department of Navy leaders on Feb. 5 called for investment in new ideas and scientific research to keep the US Navy and Marine Corps technologically superior in increasingly uncertain times.
Marriott International, an industry leader in energy conservation efforts, is partnering with The University of Texas at San Antonio to help it reach its current environmental goal of reducing energy and water consumption (on an intensity basis) by 20 percent throughout its approximately 1,200 managed properties by 2020. UTSA will help Marriott improve its hotels' ability to collect and analyze utility data in real-time and in turn make immediate energy-saving adjustments on-site.
Queen's University Belfast and Belfast business Andor Technology are playing a leading role in the construction of the world's biggest solar telescope. Queen's University is leading a consortium of eight UK universities and associated businesses to build the cameras for the $344 million super-telescope.
Lagrange 1 lies outside Earth's magnetic environment, a perfect place to measure the constant stream of particles from the sun, known as the solar wind, as they pass by. NOAA will use DSCOVR to monitor the solar wind and forecast space weather at Earth -- effects from the material and energy from the sun that can impact our satellites and technological infrastructure on Earth.
The transfer of 31 million acres of land managed by the federal government to Utah would hinder public land management reforms and harm the state, according to a newly released analysis by researchers at the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and Environment at the University of Utah's S.J. Quinney College of Law.
The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society, an organization of physicians, scientists, and other medical professionals dedicated to treating and preventing infectious diseases, issued a statement today about the ongoing measles outbreak, urging vaccination to halt the spread of the disease and to prevent future outbreaks.
Lurasidone shows no added benefit for acute treatment or as prevention of relapse. It is uncertain whether its effect on schizophrenia symptoms is as good as that of comparator therapies.
Overfishing and disease contributed to the decline of seven abalone species. White abalone, in particular, is likely extinct because remaining males and females are not located in close enough proximity to reproduce successfully. Spawning and rearing white abalone in a laboratory has been accomplished on a small scale, but partners are turning attention to producing sufficient numbers of white abalone to eventually outplant them to suitable rocky reef habitats off the coast of Southern California.
