​Teams Work Better with a Little Help From Your Friends

Here’s something both you and your boss can agree on: Workplace teams are better when they include your friends. Researchers analyzed the results of 26 different studies (called a meta-analysis) and found that teams composed of friends performed better on some tasks than groups of acquaintances or strangers.

Scientists Track Ovarian Cancers to Site of Origin: Fallopian Tubes

Some scientists have suspected that the most common form of ovarian cancer may originate in the fallopian tubes, the thin fibrous tunnels that connect the ovaries to the uterus. Now, results of a study of nine women suggest that the genomic roots of many ovarian tumors may indeed arise in the fallopian tubes, potentially providing insights into the origin of ovarian cancer and suggesting new ways for prevention and intervention of this disease.

Taming ‘Wild’ Electrons in Graphene

GraphenePicture2.jpg

Graphene – a one-atom-thick layer of the stuff in pencils – is a better conductor than copper and is very promising for electronic devices, but with one catch: Electrons that move through it can’t be stopped. Until now, that is. Scientists at Rutgers University-New Brunswick have learned how to tame the unruly electrons in graphene, paving the way for the ultra-fast transport of electrons with low loss of energy in novel systems. Their study was published online in Nature Nanotechnology.

Cedars-Sinai Tip Sheet for Oct. 20107

October Tips Include: A noninvasive eye scan for detecting Alzheimer’s disease; a first-of-its-kind heart device for babies born with a congenital heart defect; research that could lead to a vaccine for antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” and heart research suggesting that stem cells from young hearts could rejuvenate older ones.
