Leading Argonne National Laboratory researcher Seth Darling describes the most advanced research innovations that could address global clean water accessibility. His comprehensive paper focuses on understanding and controlling the interfaces between materials and water.
A study comparing the evidence and recommendation levels of pregnancy information in new prescription drug labeling found significant discrepancies in labeling information among the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Korea.
Judges should balance between universal norms of justice and the sovereignty of individual nations when deciding when to use the public policy doctrine, writes Mr. Kenny Chng, a legal scholar at the Singapore Management University.
When conducting research involving the testing of human biospecimens, investigators and their institutions should routinely consider whether and how to return individual research results on a study-specific basis through an informed decision-making process, says a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Decisions on whether to return individual research results will vary depending on the characteristics of the research, the nature of the results, and the interests of participants.
Norah Dunbar's NSF-funded video game trains people to better discern truth from lies -- and how to spot deceptive behavior.
Teenage drivers are eight times more likely to be involved in a collision or near miss during the first three months after getting a driver's license, compared to the previous three months on a learner's permit, suggests a study led by the National Institutes of Health.
Millennials living more dangerously and settling down later could be creating a new generation of addicted smokers and e-cigarette users, according to the surprising results of research by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).
New evidence shows the power of a method aimed at changing the longstanding problem of encouraging patients with chronic diseases to take their medicine faithfully: insurance plans that charge patients less for the medicines that could help them most. Some plans even make some of the medicines free to the patients with certain conditions.
The NPS DataHub allows forensic chemists to share data on new drug analogs, including their chemical structures and signatures, which are the keys to identifying them in the lab. Identifying drugs quickly is critical. 'If people start overdosing and dying from a new drug analog, authorities need to identify it as quickly as possible,' said NIST research chemist Aaron Urbas. 'To focus your resources effectively, you need to know what you're looking for.'
In a study published today in PLOS ONE, experts analyzed reams of past food and nutrition research to help identify and spur action in areas where meaningful improvements can be made in the design and execution of future food and nutrition studies. This is one of the first studies to use 'Risk of Bias (ROB) domains,' as defined by Cochrane, in this way. Researchers typically use ROB domains to evaluate the relative strengths of individual studies when conducting systematic reviews.
