Engineers at The University of Nottingham are developing lightweight automotive components using new additive manufacturing processes to boost vehicle fuel efficiency, while cutting noise and CO2 emissions. The components will be constructed using selective laser melting (SLM). SLM uses a 3-D Computer Aided Design model to digitally reproduce the object in a number of layers. Each layer is sequentially recreated by melting sections of a bed of aluminum alloy powder using a laser beam.
UC San Francisco's Center for Digital Health Innovation (CDHI) today announced a collaboration with Intel Corporation to deploy and validate a deep learning analytics platform designed to improve care.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released a draft guidance on biosimilar interchangeability titled 'Considerations in Demonstrating Interchangeability With a Reference Product' that leaders at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) believe may address many of the safety and efficacy concerns physicians have raised over the past year.
At a ceremony today at ESO's Headquarters four contracts were signed for major components of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) that ESO is building. These were for: the casting of the telescope's giant secondary and tertiary mirrors, awarded to SCHOTT; the supply of mirror cells to support these two mirrors, awarded to the SENER Group; and the supply of the edge sensors that form a vital part of the ELT's huge segmented primary mirror control system, awarded to the FAMES consortium.
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and NXP Semiconductors N.V., the world-leading automotive semiconductor supplier in secure connected cars, have launched Singapore's first Smart Mobility Consortium to focus on testing and developing smart mobility technologies.
Sandia and the University of New Mexico researchers are collecting and study biometric data to determine if declines in physical or cognitive functions can predict a medical emergency for Grand Canyon hikers. Called R2R WATCH, for Rim-to-Rim Wearables at the Canyon for Health, the study draws on the research team's expertise in biology and cognitive science.
A new study from the University of Colorado Denver shows a direct link between financial strain and increased risk of death, a finding with potentially major implications for both economic and health care policy.
People with rare cancers now have the option of joining a national clinical trial testing leading-edge immunotherapies for a wide variety of tumor types. It's the first federally funded immunotherapy trial devoted to rare cancers. Despite their name, rare cancers make up more than 20 percent of cancers diagnosed worldwide.
A global coalition to create new vaccines for emerging infectious diseases, designed to help give the world an insurance policy against epidemics, launches today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has successfully launched its 7th satellite into space from the International Space Station (ISS) yesterday evening.
