One-Step 3D Printing of Catalysts Developed at Ames Laboratory

Figure-1b-600.jpg

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory has developed a 3D printing process that creates a chemically active catalytic object in a single step, opening the door to more efficient ways to produce catalysts for complex chemical reactions in a wide scope of industries.

Rutgers-Led Research Could Revolutionize Nuclear Waste Reprocessing and Save Money

MolecularTraps2Fig.jpg

Seeking a better way to capture radioactive iodides in spent nuclear reactor fuel, Rutgers–New Brunswick scientists have developed an extremely efficient “molecular trap” that can be recycled and reused. The trap is like a tiny, porous super-sponge. The internal surface area of just one gram of this material could stretch out to cover five 94-by-50-foot basketball courts, or 23,500 square feet. And, once caught inside, radioactive iodides will remain trapped for eons.

Pseudopod Protrusions Propel Amoeboid Cells Forward: A 3-D Swimming Model

POF036710-Bagchi-amoeboid-swimming-ST.jpg

Rhythmic patterns and precise motions are key elements of proper swimming, and comparable demonstrations of this pattern repetition and power usage can be seen in a microscopic swimmer -- the amoeboid cell. The cell swimming shapes are now predictable to new levels of precision, thanks to advanced 3-D modeling. Researchers generated a 3-D model of an amoeba practicing pseudopod-driven swimming; they discuss their work in a cover article in this month’s Physics of Fluids.

How an Interest in Bipolar Disorder Drugs Led to a Better Understanding of Leukemia

A research project that began 20 years ago with an interest in how lithium treats mood disorders has yielded insights into the progression of blood cancers such as leukemia. The research, which centers on a protein called GSK-3, will be published in the Nov. 3 issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

Smart Artificial Beta Cells Could Lead to New Diabetes Treatment

GU_2017_SEMimage.jpg

UNC and NC State researchers have developed artificial beta cells that automatically release insulin into the bloodstream when glucose levels rise. This work was done in lab experiments but could lead to a much more patient-friendly treatment than injections.
