AUSTIN, Texas — Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered a correlation between aging and the effectiveness of T-cells, a type of immune cell programmed to fight or kill a threat. … Continue reading →
Scientists at the University of Exeter have developed a pioneering new technique that could revolutionise the surgical treatment of epilepsy. The team of scientists, led by Dr Marc Goodfellow and Professor John Terry, have developed the ground-breaking new method that … Continue reading →
Technique developed by UCLA researchers may be especially useful in helping to diagnose diseases Researchers from the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA have created a new technique that greatly enhances digital microscopy images.
Concrete surrounds us in our cities and stretches across the land in a vast network of highways. It’s so ubiquitous that most of us take it for granted, but many aren’t aware that concrete’s key ingredient, ordinary portland cement, is … Continue reading →
3-D printers can create all kinds of things, from eyeglasses to implantable medical devices, straight from a computer model and without the need for molds. But for making spacecraft, engineers sometimes need custom parts that traditional manufacturing techniques and standard … Continue reading →
For years, scientists have had an itch they couldn’t scratch. Even with the best microscopes and spectrometers, it’s been difficult to study and identify molecules at the so-called mesoscale, a region of matter that ranges from 10 to 1000 nanometers … Continue reading →
In steel making, two desirable qualities — strength and ductility — tend to be at odds: Stronger steel is less ductile, and more ductile steel is not as strong. Engineers at Brown University, three Chinese universities, and the Chinese Academy … Continue reading →
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new tool to detect and contain malware that attempts root exploits in Android devices. The tool improves on previous techniques by targeting code written in the C programming language – which … Continue reading →
