Marine Corps teams with Sandia on microgrids and renewable energy planning Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(DOE/US Department of Energy) The US Marine Corps are the first boots on the ground in a crisis. On the front lines, they must be able to power up securely without plugging into utilities. They require nothing less than completely reliable and cost-effective energy independence.
MDI Biological Laboratory offers course in quantitative fluorescence microscopy Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory) Science professionals, doctoral and postdoctoral students from across the country will gather May 20 through 27 at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, for an intensive one-week course in Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy. The goal of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods in their laboratory research.
Two-minute warnings make kids' 'screen time' tantrums worse Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(University of Washington) Giving young children a two-minute warning that 'screen time' is about to end makes transitions away from tablets, phones, televisions and other technological devices more painful, a new University of Washington study has found.
Now 40, NASA's LAGEOS set the bar for studies of earth Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) On May 4, 1976, NASA launched a cannonball-shaped satellite that transformed studies of Earth's shape, rotation and gravity field. Now at 40, NASA's LAGEOS set the bar for Earth studies.
Molybdenum disulfide holds promise for light absorption Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Rice University) Using a layer of molybdenum disulfide less than 1 nanometer thick, Rice University researchers in Isabell Thomann's lab have designed a system that can absorb more than 35 percent of incident light in the 400- to 700-nanometer wavelength range.
Scientists to use microbes and methane to create sustainable Omega 3 Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(University of Nottingham) Scientists are trying to find a new way to produce the nutritional fatty acids called Omega 3 that are currently sourced from fish oil from the world's declining natural fish stocks.
Starving cancer the key to new treatments: ANU media release Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Australian National University) Researchers have identified a vital supply route that cancer cells use to obtain their nutrients, in a discovery that could lead to new treatments to stop the growth of tumors.The research team blocked gateways through which the cancer cell was obtaining the amino acid glutamine and found the cells almost completely stopped growing.
Multiplexed immunofluorescence reveals protein expression alterations in breast cancer Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Journal of Clinical Investigation) A new study in JCI Insight reports the use of a multiplexed immunostaining platform to examine the protein expression within breast tumors.
Antibody targets and destroys cells implicated in systemic lupus erythmatosis Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Journal of Clinical Investigation) In this issue of JCI Insight, research groups led by Ian Wicks of the University of Melbourne and Nicholas Wilson of CSL Limited developed an antibody (CSL362) directed against the surface molecule CD123 that targets and depletes pDCs and other cells implicated in SLE.
Treatment with Alk5 inhibitor improves tumor uptake of imaging agents Thursday May 5th, 2016 04:00:00 AM
(Journal of Clinical Investigation) In this issue of JCI Insight, Heike Daldrup-Link of Stanford University and colleagues demonstrate that pre-treatment with an activin-like kinase 5 (Alk5) inhibitor enhances tumor-specific delivery of the contrast agent ferumoxytol.
