The ESO Council gave the green light for the construction of the European Extremely Large Telescope in two phases. Around one billion euros has been authorized for the first phase, which will cover the construction costs. It will enable tremendous scientific discoveries in the fields of exoplanets, stellar composition of nearby galaxies and the deep Universe. The largest ESO contract ever, for the telescope main structure, will be placed within the next year.
Platinum-resistant ovarian cancer patients treated with PM1183 had superior median overall survival compared to topotecan. In this group of 33 randomized patients, treatment with PM1183 showed median overall survival of 18.1 months compared to 8.5 months for topotecan-treated patients, used as control group. The efficacy data of this Phase IIb will be confirmed in a pivotal Phase III trial with a larger group of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer patients in the first half of 2015.

Where did you have some of your earliest experiences with science? Was it a trip to a planetarium that gave you a new awareness of Earth's place in the universe? An aquarium show that taught you about a vast ecosystem beneath the surface of the ocean? Or maybe a science museum, where the chance to see and touch fossils ignited an interest in dinosaurs?
Hockey players will be tested in a novel diagnostic machine built by NJIT biomedical engineers.
Beginning today, anyone can download a safe and free app that will put their computer or Android-based mobile device to work to form a virtual supercomputer to help The Scripps Research Institute screen millions of chemical compounds to identify new drug leads for treating Ebola. Meanwhile, the devices will remain fully available for normal use by their owners.
