Authors submitting their research to the open-access Biodiversity Data Journal are invited to prepare a Reuse Recipe Document using software development platform Profeza's CREDIT Suite - an innovative tool created in the name of reusability, reproducibility and credibility in science. Once published, articles are linked to the additional research outcomes, such as experimental repetitions, null/negative results, protocols and datasets. These are assigned with their own DOIs and linked to both their creator's and reuser's ORCID.
Banner University Medicine Lung Institute is the first in Arizona and second in the US to offer a new lung valve treatment for patients with severe COPD or emphysema. Recently approved by the FDA under their 'Breakthrough Devices' designation, the Zephyr® Endobronchial Valve system is a major advancement in treatment because it is the first minimally invasive procedure to help emphysema sufferers breathe easier without major surgery.
Tohoku University's Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems (CIES), led by Professor Tetsuo Endoh (Graduate School of Engineering at Tohoku University) has announced success on a collaboration between CIES and semiconductor test equipment supplier Advantest Corporation.
A jointly established Research Lab will provide a grant to finance research projects on a specific annual topic, focusing on areas of key importance to the Chinese research community and providing an opportunity to drive significant change on issues most affecting Chinese researchers.
Gauss Centre for Supercomputing (GCS) users from Germany's leading academic institutions are now able to move data to and from GCS facilities significantly faster -- the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS), Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), and Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) will be able to push Germany's high-speed X-WiN network to its limits.
The UK's first quantum accelerometer for navigation has been demonstrated by a team from Imperial College London and M Squared at the National Quantum Technologies Showcase.
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa. This will mark the beginning of the Antarctic season, in which oceanographic fieldwork in the Weddell Sea, a resupply mission to the Neumayer Station III, and explorations of the Larsen C ice shelf region and the South Shetland Islands are on the agenda.
Could our blood hold the molecular secrets to a fountain of youth, preventing age-related brain disorders? Are brain aging and Alzheimer's disease caused by a failure of interconnected systems in our bodies, triggering a domino-like cascade of disease? Can targeting the red blood cells and blood vessels jointly keep our brains healthy and prevent dementia?
Loyola Medicine is among two centers in the world offering a novel catheter ablation system intended to improve treatment outcomes for a life-threatening heart rhythm disorder called ventricular tachycardia (VT).
A small clinical trial using gold nanoparticles that act as tumor-seeking missiles on a mission to remove prostate cancer has begun at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). It is the first trial of its kind in the world.
