Visual Inspection Procedures Vital to Bridge Safety

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Easy to design and inexpensive to build, pretensioned deck-beam bridges account for more than 7,200 bridges on Illinois highways and county roads. Two beams from such bridges have fallen apart, initiating a crash course in bridge inspection and repair.

Getting Bugs Out of Risk Management in Insect Research

Michigan State University

Genetic engineering holds great promise in protecting people from disease carrying insects, but two Michigan State University professors point out that new ways are needed to best inform and protect the public while field research and testing are in process (Science, 6-30-00).

Development and Maturation of Auditory Pathway

Johns Hopkins Medicine

The function of a group of nerve fibers that originates in the brain stem and fires off signals even before newborn rats can hear has been discovered by Johns Hopkins scientists. The signals may be a process for wiring the ears and brain for hearing, much like laying down circuits on a computer chip (Science, 6-30-00).

Cancer "Survival" Structure Deciphered at Salk

Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Scientists at The Salk Institute have deciphered the three-dimensional structure of a molecule, appropriately named "survivin," that endows cancer cells with their pernicious ability to persevere. Their work suggests how drugs might block this molecule's activity and lead cells to commit "suicide" (Nature Structural Biology).

Fruit Fly Model, How Mosquitoes Carry Malaria

Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research

Scientists have found a way to turn a fruit fly into a surrogate mosquito, able to carry malaria and infect chickens with the deadly disease. Their approach may pave the way for better anti-malarial, transmission-blocking vaccines, and engineered mosquitoes that are resistant to malaria (Science, 6-30-00).
