Tobacco Shops Associated With Crime in Urban Communities of Color

Tobacco shops, also known as smoke shops, may represent potential “nuisance properties” in urban communities of color, a study led by a researcher at the University of California, Riverside has found. Nuisance properties are properties where unsafe activities affecting public health and safety occur repeatedly. Past research has shown that alcohol outlets such as liquor or corner stores may promote nuisance activities like robberies, drug use, or other crimes in urban communities, rendering them unsafe for residents to walk by or visit. Other examples of nuisance properties are motels, payday lenders, and vacant homes and lots. Add to this list now tobacco shops.

Researchers Identify Hormone for Treating Sepsis

Biomedical scientists at the University of California, Riverside have identified a hormone that may lead to improved survival rates for patients with sepsis. Using a mouse model, they have discovered that the human protein resistin could be used to treat this medical emergency. The researchers found that mice expressing human resistin had a 100 percent survival rate from a sepsis-like infection when compared to wild-type mice with the same infection.

Prototype Shows How Tiny Photodetectors Can Double Their Efficiency

UC Riverside physicists have developed a photodetector – a device that converts light into electrons – by combining two distinct inorganic materials and producing quantum mechanical processes that could revolutionize the way solar energy is collected. The researchers stacked two atomic layers of tungsten diselenide on a single atomic layer of molybdenum diselenide. Such stacking results in properties vastly different from those of the parent layers, allowing for customized electronic engineering at the tiniest possible scale.

Getting Therapeutic Sound Waves Through Thick Skulls

20170725-Garay_window-0145-8Mp.jpg

Ultrasound brain surgery has enormous potential for the treatment of neurological diseases and cancers, but getting sound waves through the skull and into the brain is no easy task. To address this problem, a team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside has developed a ceramic skull implant through which doctors can deliver ultrasound treatments on demand and on a recurring basis.
