What if we could identify at-risk areas anywhere in the world at any time? Enter NASA's Global Landslide Hazard Assessment (LHASA) model and mapping tool.
National Comprehensive Cancer Network's patient information team provides a patient and caregiver version of recently updated, evidence-based expert consensus recommendations for vaccinating people with cancer against COVID-19.
Journal of Cell Biology, Journal of Experimental Medicine, and Journal of General Physiology announce an editorial policy allowing swift and confidential updates to author names at any time and for any reason including changes to gender identity, marriage, divorce, religion, or other personal circumstances.
Powerful, durable, safe, and low production costs: batteries 'Made in Germany' could soon secure a place among the best in the world. This will be realized by including advanced approaches to quality assurance and analytics in production, which are now being developed and tested at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The activities in the AQua battery research cluster are part of the 'Battery research factory' initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
The funding will support the pre-clinical advancement of dual IRAK1/4 and panFLT3 inhibitors to target cancer cells that evade the effects of both targeted therapy and chemotherapy drugs via adaptive resistance mechanisms, having co-opted IRAK1/4-mediated immune signaling pathways to survive.
A major upgrade to the world's largest outdoor earthquake simulator reached a milestone mid-April when the facility's floor--all 300,000 lbs of it--was put back into place. When completed this fall, the simulator will have the ability to reproduce multi-dimensional earthquake motions with unprecedented accuracy to make structures and their residents safer during strong shakes. Researchers lay out the details of the upgrade in a paper published in January 2021 in Frontiers in Built Environment.
The AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG), the largest global HIV research network, today announced the launch of A5386, a phase 1 HIV cure study evaluating two promising therapies. A5386 will study whether N-803 (a clinical-stage biologic also called Anktiva?) can control HIV alone or together with combination broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) after participants stop their antiretroviral therapy (ART) and they are carefully monitored.
The US Naval Research Laboratory's gallium nitride (GaN) wafers, also called large-area engineered substrates, can enable GaN to potentially be a displacement technology for silicon semiconductors used in microelectronics, particularly in power electronics.
Thousands of babies on ventilators worldwide are affected by a common breathing tube incident that could result in a lifelong disability, brain damage or even death. Researchers from Purdue University spent 30 years developing a solution that can now be offered to all NICUs, thanks to the availability of the device through one of the largest medical technology companies in the world, Medtronic.
The new limits for the Cordillera de Coiba protected area were determined by a consulting team led by Hector Guzman, a marine biologist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. With this action, Panama reaches the goal of the 30x30 Initiative nine years ahead of schedule, charting the course for other countries to follow.
