Younger T Cells May Improve Immunotherapy for Children's Cancer

Pediatric oncologists from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have investigated techniques to improve and broaden a novel personalized cell therapy to treat children with cancer. The researchers say a patient's outcome may be improved if clinicians select specific subtypes of T cells to attack diseases like acute lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoma.

For the first time, scientists have observed ripples in the fabric of spacetime called gravitational waves, arriving at the Earth from a cataclysmic event in the distant universe. A UAH researcher was at the center of action.

LIGO Announces the Detection of Gravitational Waves - Experts Needed

ScreenShot2016-02-11at10.50.12AM.png

Scientist using LIGO have observed the warping of space-time generated by the collision of two black holes more than a billion light-years from Earth. This is the first direct detection of gravitational waves, first proposed by Albert Einstein in his Theory of General Relativity, published in 1916.

The Big Science Comes From UW-Milwaukee’s Big Data

The detection of gravitational waves came after a nearly 20-year search – the largest and most ambitious project ever funded by the National Science Foundation – and physicists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee played an essential role in both computing and data analysis.

‘Electrospray’ System Could Revolutionize Manufacturing; NSF Grant Recipient to Explore 3D Printing Technique

20160121_chiarot03_jwc.jpg

Paul Chiarot, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Binghamton University, recently received a five-year, $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious program for early-career researchers, and he aims to redefine 3D printing at a very fine scale. His “electrospray” technique puts tiny particles into a solvent and applies them to a surface, creating electronics in a process not unlike an inkjet printer. “The normal way we make things is we put material everywhere and then etch away what we don’t want,” Chiarot says. “You might end up etching away 90 or even 95 percent of the material. If you’re printing, you can just put the material where you want it to be.”
