The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is proud to support World Cancer Research Day, Sept. 24, and its efforts to promote cancer research as a driving force behind progress in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship.
Accenture and Magdeburg University together with Google Cloud, have started a first for Europe approach for applied research of SAP cloud coupling and also training through the newly formed cloud academy aiming to enable SAP clients to leverage the power of sustainable cloud computing and artificial intelligence.
Lasers are ubiquitous in everyday life and in research. Scientists from Würzburg have now developed the virtual-reality laser laboratory “femtoPro”, which simulates complex optical setups in real time and enables eye-safe training in the handling of short-pulse lasers.
If popular wisdom holds that music is good for the soul, science is increasingly seeking to better understand how music can affect the body, brain, and mind, as evidenced by the 2020 publication of the first World Health Organization report on health and music. In response, the newly established University of Ottawa Music and Health Research Institute (MHRI) has made it its core mission to delve deeper into how musical intervention can affect health, developing the knowledge, innovative therapeutic practices, and solutions that can contribute to improving the health of populations.
ZOONOSES NOW AN ASV AFFILIATED JOURNAL We are delighted to announce that Zoonoses is now an affiliated journal of the American Society for Virology (ASV).

By moving to ARPHA, Biosystematics and Ecology now enjoys a long list of high-tech perks, which dramatically enhance the entire publishing process, from submission to publication, distribution and archiving.
Susan Skomal, Ph.D., who has served the nonprofit publisher BioOne as President and Chief Executive Officer since 2005, will retire at the end of this year.
A cardiothoracic surgical team with UofL Health – Jewish Hospital and the University of Louisville has performed the world’s first Aeson® bioprosthetic total artificial heart implantation in a female patient. The investigational device, currently intended as a bridge to heart transplant, is part of an Early Feasibility Study (EFS) sponsored by CARMAT, a French medical device company, in partnership with UofL, UofL Health – Jewish Hospital and the UofL Health – Trager Transplant Center.
Some premature babies need the help of life-saving machines in a neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU, to provide oxygen that eases the struggle to take their first breaths. However, small, personalized adjustments — to either raise or lower the level of oxygen provided — must be made by hand under the careful attention of nurses and respiratory therapists. Now, a clinical trial will test a new device, designed by a researcher at the University of Missouri College of Engineering, that could make those needed adjustments for premature babies in a NICU — automatically.
Researchers at Nemours Children’s Health, Delaware have received a $10.5 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to support the Delaware Comprehensive Sickle Cell Research Program. The five-year award from the NIH Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) will support clinical, translational, and psychosocial research in sickle cell disease (SCD).
The California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) has launched the Quantum Biology Center at UCLA, with the goal to train students and early-career scientists and engineers, to foster interdisciplinary research collaborations and to promote scientific networking. The center will be led by Clarice D. Aiello, a CNSI member and UCLA assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering in the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering. Initial financial support for the center comes from the National Science Foundation, the Kavli Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, and the D’Or Institute for Research and Education.
