08.04.2020Pitt and Harvard engineers and chemists 'program' liquid crystalline elastomers to replicate complex twisting action simply with the use of light.
07.04.2020The Paul-Ehrlich-Institut in cooperation with three institutes of virology, has evaluated laboratory data of SARS-CoV-2 infected persons. No SARS-CoV-2 genome could be detected in the blood of asymptomatic patients or in patients with less pronounced symptoms.
03.04.2020The only way to accurately measure pressure inside the skull is to insert a catheter or sensor inside. However, this is invasive and techniques with less risk are desired. Intracranial pressure (ICP) needs to be correctly accounted for in a variety of medical situations including neurosurgery, neurology and emergency medicine.
02.04.2020Daily life during a pandemic means social distancing and finding new ways to remotely connect with friends, family and co-workers. And as we communicate online and by text, artificial intelligence could play a role in keeping our conversations on track, according to new Cornell University research.
01.04.2020As the coronavirus pandemic spreads across the world, Purdue University scientists are working to move solutions to diagnose and treat the virus to the marketplace as soon as possible.
31.03.2020The chip allows precise control of oxygen and other conditions to observe cardiac cell behavior.
27.03.2020Researchers from ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) have set a new world record: they 3D printed complex objects with higher cellulose content than that of any other additively manufactured cellulose-based parts. To achieve this, they used a clever trick.
26.03.2020Running is great exercise but not everyone feels great doing it. In hopes of boosting physical activity - and possibly creating a new mode of transportation - engineers at Stanford University are studying devices that people could strap to their legs to make running easier.
25.03.2020A new method was found to produce π-allylpalladium complexes by radical chemistry. The study was published in 'Nature Catalysis'.
24.03.2020Graphite nanoplatelets integrated into plastic medical surfaces can prevent infections, killing 99.99 per cent of bacteria which try to attach - a cheap and viable potential solution to a problem which affects millions, costs huge amounts of time and money, and accelerates antibiotic resistance. This is according to research from Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, in the journal Small.
