A new international effort to develop and disseminate 'transformative innovation policy' around the world will be launched by the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex this week.
Bringing together the different forces in sustainability, ASU's Center for Biodiversity Outcomes (CBO), has established new partnerships that strengthen the university's research capacity in conservation science and biodiversity. The official signing of the agreements took place in Hawaii during the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress.
UT Southwestern Medical Center heart specialists will study whether electrocardiograms (ECGs) are useful in identifying Texas high school student athletes who are at risk of suffering sudden cardiac death.
Diagnosing concussions is difficult because symptoms like forgetfulness, wobbly gait, disorientation or unconsciousness are subjective. A new study of college athletes investigates objective indicators using Doppler ultrasound to measure brain blood flow and blood vessel function. That could reveal a marker in the mechanism that maintains constant blood flow to the brain, says researcher Sushmita Purkayastha, Southern Methodist University, Dallas. She and colleagues at U.T. Southwestern Medical Center use ultrasound probes to examine cerebral autoregulation.
A discovery made at RUDN University allows to substantially increase the production of high-quality planting material of horticultural crops.
An image-processing and analysis software developed at Sandia National Laboratories has swept the ranks of the country's bomb squads. Called XTK, it has spread through the military and emergency response communities so rapidly that it's now in the hands of more than 20,000 users across the globe.
