Seven scientists with novel approaches to fighting cancer have been named 2021 recipients of the Damon Runyon-Rachleff Innovation Award.
A UMass Lowell researcher developing innovative therapies for injured children and teens has received more than $700,000 from the National Institutes of Health to support that work.
Indiana University School of Medicine and Regenstrief Institute research scientists have received a $3.4 million award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to investigate the best care options for the 40 percent of people who go to the hospital emergency department with chest pain that is determined to be caused by anxiety rather than a cardiac event.
The School of Medicine at the University of California, Riverside, has received a grant aimed at halting further isolation of people aging with HIV during the COVID-19 pandemic. The two-year grant will enable a study, starting later this month, involving the participation of people living with HIV in Riverside County, Los Angeles, and the Tampa Bay area in Florida.
There is a pressing need for skilled climate scientists with excellent insight into advanced mathematical theories as well as the physics of the Earth system. A European scientist training programme, CriticalEarth, orchestrated by Peter Ditlevsen, Physics of Ice, Climate and Earth at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen is addressing the problem.
NYU Tandon School of Engineering has received a TRIO grant for over $2 million to help promote diversity in STEM programs.
To build better vaccines, scientists want to know more about how our bodies make adequate numbers of effective, durable antibodies against the influenza virus.
Ten students from The University of Texas at Arlington have received coveted Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowships from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
These awards will fund Kudithipudi's ongoing research developing novel brain-inspired lifelong learning algorithms and systems. Her approaches attempt to close the performance gap between modern artificial intelligence (AI) systems and biological systems, allowing them to learn new tasks while simultaneously improving their energy efficiency.
Reliable systems for storing large amounts of energy are needed for industrial nations to succeed in making strides toward a regenerative energy supply. A team led by scientists from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf aims to bring such applications to a level in which they are ready for use. The SOLSTICE project strives to develop energy storage systems based on liquid sodium and zinc. The EU is funding the project with eight million Euros via Horizon 2020.
