New framework pushes the limits of high-performance computing Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Virginia Tech) Virginia Tech researchers found a way to give high-performance computing data systems the flexibility to thrive with a first-of-its-kind framework called BespoKV, perhaps helping to one day achieve the HPC goal of performing at the exascale, or a billion billion calculations per second.
Big data and advanced artificial intelligence techniques to tackle Alzheimer's disease Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Case Western Reserve University) Rong Xu, Ph.D., recently received a total of $5 million for two projects that will use big data methods for a comprehensive look at a range of factors that may inform the mechanism of Alzheimer's and related dementia.
From the cosmos to fusion plasmas, PPPL presents findings at global APS gathering Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Piece summarizes invited PPPL talks ranging from fusion to astrophysics at 60th APS-DPP annual meeting.
INCITE grants awarded to 62 computational research projects Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(DOE/Argonne National Laboratory) The US Department of Energy announced new projects for 2019 through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program.
Synthetic molecule invades double-stranded DNA Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Carnegie Mellon University) Carnegie Mellon University researchers have developed a synthetic molecule that can recognize and bind to double-stranded DNA or RNA under normal physiological conditions. The molecule could provide a new platform for developing methods for the diagnosis and treatment of genetic conditions.
A step closer to 'design on demand' scaffolds for tissue regeneration Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Lehigh University) Lehigh University chemical engineer Kelly Schultz was part of a special session of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh last month, where she was invited to present her lab's work determining how increasing the concentrations of polymers in solution changes the structure of cross-linked gels. The title of the session was 'AIChE Journal Futures: New Directions in Chemical Engineering Research.'
Patients' own cells and materials used to create personalized tissue implants of any kind Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) In a new study, Tel Aviv University researchers reveal how they invented the first fully personalized tissue implant, engineered from a patient's own materials and cells. As a result, the risk of an immune response to an organ implant virtually disappears, the researchers say.
Ultra-thin transparent silver films for solar cells Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Ruhr-University Bochum) A new fabrication process for transparent ultra-thin silver films has been developed by researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the University of Wuppertal. The material may help build highly efficient solar cells and light-emitting diodes. However, traditional chemical methods have not been able to produce ultra-thin and pure silver films.
Mobile technologies may help researchers crack the mysteries of aging Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Penn State) A National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant will allow Penn State's Martin Sliwinski and team to learn more about how small changes in the brain can develop into neurological conditions later in life by developing new standardized mobile technologies for researchers across the U.S.
Diabetes targeted in new bioengineering research at Clemson University Monday November 12th, 2018 05:00:00 AM
(Clemson University) The research will be led by Agneta Simionescu, an associate professor in the Department of Bioengineering. She announced Monday that the National Institutes of Health is providing $1.38 million for her research.Simionescu's project sharpens the focus on atherosclerosis, a condition that accelerates in diabetics.
