Engineering Students Develop 3D-Printed Prosthetic Hand for Campus Employee

When a group of six Binghamton University biomedical engineering students launched a collaboration to create a functional biomechanical hand using 3D printing technology one year ago, their thoughts turned to an amputee whom they would often see every day, and to the opportunity to improve her life.

Better Than BMI: Study Finds More Accurate Way to Determine Adolescent Obesity

Researchers have found a new, more accurate way to determine if adolescents are overweight, important findings considering many school districts label adolescents — who tend to be more vulnerable to weight bias and fat shaming than adults — as obese.

Hafnia Dons a New Face

As computer chips become smaller, faster and more powerful, their insulating layers must also be much more robust -- currently a limiting factor for semiconductor technology. A collaborative University of Kentucky-Texas A&M University research team says this new phase of hafnia is an order of magnitude better at withstanding applied fields.

New Lung “Organoids” in a Dish Mimic Features of Full-Size Lung

New lung “organoids”—tiny 3-D structures that mimic features of a full-sized lung—have been created from human pluripotent stem cells by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC). The team used the organoids to generate models of human lung diseases in a lab dish, which could be used to advance our understanding of a variety of respiratory diseases.

Study Finds Athletes with ADHD More Likely to Choose Team Sports, Could Increase Injury Risk

A new study from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center finds athletes with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more likely to compete in team contact sports than individual sports, which could increase their risk of injury.

Study Finds Bacteria Living in Marine Sponge Produce Toxic Flame Retardant-Like Compounds

A Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego-led research team discovered for the first time that a common marine sponge hosts bacteria that specialize in the production of toxic compounds nearly identical to man-made fire retardants.

Fermi Satellite Observes Billionth Gamma Ray with LAT Instrument

On April 12, one of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope's instruments – the Large Area Telescope (LAT), which was conceived of and assembled at SLAC – detected its billionth extraterrestrial gamma ray.

Observatories Combine to Crack Open the Crab Nebula

Astronomers have produced a highly detailed image of the Crab Nebula, by combining data from telescopes spanning nearly the entire breadth of the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio waves seen by the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) to the powerful X-ray glow as seen by the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory. And, in between that range of wavelengths, the Hubble Space Telescope's crisp visible-light view, and the infrared perspective of the Spitzer Space Telescope.

3D-Printed ‘Bionic Skin’ Could Give Robots the Sense of Touch

Engineering researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a revolutionary process for 3D printing stretchable electronic sensory devices that could give robots the ability to feel their environment. The discovery is also a major step forward in printing electronics on real human skin.
