The University of Cincinnati is making a significant commitment of funds and resources to establish the latest innovation in microscopy as the focal point of the Center for Advanced Structural Biology (CASB) in the College of Medicine. The project will be built out in three phases over the next five years.
I am a researcher studying the breeding behavior of the Eastern whip-poor-will (Antrostomus vociferus), a cryptic bird that is primarily active after sunset as it forages on the wing for moths. So – for the summer, at least – I also am nocturnal.
The first-ever simulation of aluminum conductivity offers a recipe for an inexpensive, lightweight alternative to copper.

Studying evolution by focusing solely on fossils would leave many questions unanswered, but evolutionary developmental biology (otherwise known as “evo-devo”) helps fill in the gaps. Evo-devo scientists investigate how animal embryos develop, which allows them to make inferences about evolutionary change. J. Andrew Gillis of University of Cambridge and Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole), whose lab published two new papers this week on the evolution of the jaw, explains the evo-devo approach.

In a pioneering partnership, Argonne, the DOE Packaging Certification Program, the University of Nevada, Reno, and other DOE national labs are helping to meet demand for new expertise in nuclear packaging by offering a novel graduate certificates program that trains future leaders in the field.
A paleontologist from Binghamton University, State University of New York is assisting with a seagoing expedition with the International Ocean Discovery Program, analyzing fossils from previous expeditions to create an age model of the sediments found in the drilling area.
Binghamton University, State University of New York has unveiled six Chronolog stations throughout campus. Participants use their smartphone to take a picture and upload it to the Chronolog site, which creates a timelapse compilation of the photos. The goal is to use public participation to observe seasonal changes in ecosystem processes.
Underrepresented scholars from State University of New York community colleges have arrived at Binghamton University for an eight-week summer research program.
Binghamton University’s new Motion Analysis Research Lab has some of the most sophisticated equipment available for conducting human-movement research focused on improving health and quality of life.
