Temple launches Center of Excellence to address opioid use in pregnancy
Pregnancy is a brief but powerful window of opportunity to identify and treat opioid addiction. However, drug treatment options are limited as many programs don't accept pregnant women, which can lead to continued drug use, withdrawal or harm to the developing fetus. Through an innovative partnership with Wedge Medical Center, Temple will work to narrow this treatment gap as a newly designated Center of Excellence which will serve more than 300 pregnant women each year.

Iowa State scientist receives grants to improve glacier-flow models, sea-level predictions
Iowa State's Neal Iverson, who has studied glaciers in Iceland and Norway, is working with an international team on two projects that aim to build more realistic computer models of glacier flow. The researchers hope to understand how glaciers will speed up over the next century as the climate warms. They say that could help them predict how much glaciers will contribute to the rise of sea levels.

Research grant for development of positron pulses of unprecedented intensity
The German research foundation DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) has granted 750,000 euros for the research project 'Creation of intense positron pulses on NEPOMUC' -- a collaboration between the University of Greifswald, the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, and the Technical University of Munich. They will develop a device to accumulate and store positrons and deliver these in pulses of unprecedented intensity, a device which is likely to open up new areas of experimental research.

Danforth Center expands major research program to benefit farmers in the developing world
Sorghum is a member of the grass family and is grown worldwide. It is of interest, not only because it is a staple crop in Sub-Saharan Africa, but because grain sorghum yields have been flat or declining due to the lack of sufficient investment in the development of new improved varieties. Sorghum is very resilient to drought and heat stress.
