Improved security for military operations and at airports, schools, sports venues, and other public spaces. A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has created a camera that acts as a portable body scanner. The scanner reads millimeter wavelengths, invisible to the eye, but highly reflective when they hit metal objects, even if buried under bulky clothing.
Salk Institute Associate Professor Janelle Ayres has been awarded $1.8 million over two years by the NOMIS Foundation to study health as an active process in which microbes--including the trillions of microorganisms that call the human body home--initiate interactions that promote the health of the host.
Knowing how to study properly takes practice, and this is especially true when students are working on academic texts. However, the way we read in this digital age and thus how we understand texts and generate knowledge has changed. Researchers at Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) are now researching how to innovatively design university-level teaching in this digital age.
NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701), Tokyo Institute of Technology, Waseda University, and Yokohama National University announced that they have been selected to participate in the 'Project for Innovative AI Chips and Next-Generation Computing Technology Development,' a new project launched by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization. Also participating in this project will be the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology as NEC's joint implementation partner and Kyoto University as NEC's subcontractor.
The Allen Institute today announced the launch of the Allen Institute for Immunology, a new division of the Institute that is dedicated to studying the human immune system. Seeded by a generous commitment of $125 million by Allen Institute founder, the late Paul G. Allen, the new Institute will work to understand the dynamic balancing act of the human immune system, how it senses friend from foe and what goes wrong when we're ill.
A new trial could transform the treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and could benefit millions of people globally.
The grant allows regional land-grant university faculty and Montana organic farmers to launch a multi-pronged attack on creeping thistle and bindweed infestations on organic farms.
SLU pediatric researchers received $412,500 from the NIH to study how fetal exposure to inflammation can alter immune responses after birth.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases will fund a series of collaborations with medical research institutions in the southern United States to test new ways of implementing HIV treatment and prevention tools in counties with some of the highest rates of new HIV cases nationwide. The US South overall has the highest rates of new HIV diagnoses, people living with HIV, and HIV-related deaths of any US region.
The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) Board of Governors today approved $20 million to fund two new studies comparing how well different treatments work in improving care for conditions that impose high burdens on patients, caregivers and the healthcare system.
