Preemies 4 Prevention

SageandJulia.jpg

Sage Snyder and Julia Dickman are sophomores in high school. They do all the normal things high schoolers do – hang out with their friends, go shopping, and play sports after school. But for these two, the buck doesn’t stop there. Sage and Julia were both born prematurely. They spent the first several months of their lives in intensive care, and over the years have continued to experience the lasting effects of premature birth. Together with other teens who were born premature, Sage and Julia founded Preemies 4 Prevention, an effort that officially launches this month and works to raise awareness of the devastating effects of preterm birth and support for research at Penn’s March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center.

New Study Out of WSU Further Supports Use of Progesterone to Fight Preterm Birth

A new study published today – World Prematurity Day – in the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology provides additional support for treatment with vaginal progesterone to reduce the risk of preterm birth, neonatal complications and infant death in pregnant women with a short cervix. A shortened cervix is the most powerful predictor of preterm birth.

Strain-Free Epitaxy of Germanium Film on Mica

JAP017741-LIttlejohn-epitaxy-gel.jpg

Germanium was the material of choice in the early history of electronic devices, and due to its high charge carrier mobility, it’s making a comeback. It’s generally grown on expensive single-crystal substrates, adding another challenge to making it sustainably viable for most applications. To address this aspect, researchers demonstrate an epitaxy method that incorporates van der Waals’ forces to grow germanium on mica. They discuss their work in the Journal of Applied Physics.
