Apr. 22, 2015 — More than 100 drugs have been approved to treat cancer, but predicting which ones will help a particular patient is an inexact science at best. A new implantable device may change ... read more

Nanoparticle Drug Reverses Parkinson's-Like Symptoms in Rats

Apr. 22, 2015 — As baby boomers age, the number of people diagnosed with Parkinson's disease is expected to increase. Patients who develop this disease usually start experiencing symptoms around age 60 or ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Using an ultra bright X-ray source, scientists have decoded the molecular and three-dimensional structure of two promising drug candidates from the new group of Spiegelmers for the first time. The ... read more

New Brain Mapping Model Could Improve Effectiveness of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Apr. 22, 2015 — Brain researchers have developed a new brain mapping model that could improve the success rate of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) in treating conditions including depression, neuropathic ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Gas hydrate is also known as the ice that burns. And all that burns releases energy. And a lot of energy is stored in hydrates and there are gigatons of it stored in the sediments of the ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Engineers and a pediatric surgeon have joined forces to discover that physical forces like pressure and tension affect the development of limbs in embryos -- research that could someday be used to ... read more

Invisible Inks Could Help Foil Counterfeiters of All Kinds

Apr. 22, 2015 — Scientists have invented sophisticated fluorescent inks that one day could be used as multicolored barcodes for consumers to authenticate products often counterfeited. Snap a photo with your ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — Enzymes, the micro machines in our cells, can evolve to perform new tasks when confronted with novel situations. But what if you want an enzyme to do an entirely different job -- one that it would ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A stable bulk material shows the same physics found in graphene, which illuminated the interactions of electron’s orbital motion and its intrinsic magnetic orientation. The new material will be a ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — Proteins and lipids have been assumed to move through cell membranes as 'nano rafts'. This 'raft hypothesis' has now been disproved by scientists. "We should not think of the ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A new semiconducting material that is only three atomic layers thick exhibits electronic properties beyond traditional semiconductors. Two nano-engineered configurations of the material have shown an ... read more
