The American College of Physicians (ACP) applauds Thursday's federal appeals court decision that overturned a Florida state law that barred doctors from counseling patients about reducing injuries and deaths from firearms.
The University of Connecticut has joined the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute as a partner for the purpose of sharing its revolutionary human tissue and limb regeneration technologies.
UsAgainstAlzheimer's, which works collaboratively with industry partners to see near- and long-term progress against this destructive disease, applauds the vast investment of Merck, the diligence of the many principal investigators involved in the study and the courage of the clinical trial participants, as well as their caregivers, for their deep commitment to the fight.
Nevada's unmanned cloud-seeding research team has realized another fundamental capability in their effort toward enhancing snowfall in mountainous regions of the West. The Drone America Savant™ unmanned, fixed-wing aircraft reached an altitude of 1,500 feet and completed a one-hour beyond visual line of sight flight covering a total distance of 28 nautical miles on Wednesday, February 15, 2017. The test flight of the Savant™ aircraft was the longest unmanned, cross-country round-trip flight in Nevada history.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham will partner with Proton International to bring proton therapy, one of the most technically advanced forms of cancer-killing radiation, to Alabama. Proton therapy delivers a more precise dose of radiation to a tumor and can avoid damage to healthy surrounding tissue better than conventional X-ray radiation.
Over the next decade, self-driving cars could deliver $1 trillion in societal and consumer benefits due to their improved safety. For autonomous vehicles to make good on that promise they will need onboard artificial intelligence (AI) technology able to link them to highly detailed maps that reflect changes in the status of lanes, hazards, obstacles, and speed-limits in real time. Researchers at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering are making this critical machine-to-machine handshake possible.
New Zealand has granted the United States permission for a US Coast Guard icebreaker, the USCGC Polar Star, to visit the port of Lyttelton later this month.
Herrera joins a team aboard the Okeanos Explorer -- built and operated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) -- as the Biology Science Lead for the 2017 American Samoa Expedition. The goal of this expedition is to collect critical baseline information of unknown and poorly known deepwater areas in American Samoa, Samoa, and the Cook Islands.
