Brown Fat Can Burn Energy in an Unexpected Way
Joslin Diabetes Center

Joslin researchers have found a pathway that can boost the production of (heat-generating, fat-burning) brown fat cells without also creating unhelpful white fat cells. This finding suggests that the pathway the Joslin team uncovered might offer a solution to that challenge.

Scientists See Energy Gap Modulations in a Cuprate Superconductor
Brookhaven National Laboratory

Scientists studying high-Tc superconductors at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have definitive evidence for the existence of a state of matter known as a pair density wave--first predicted by theorists some 50 years ago. Their results show that this phase coexists with superconductivity in a well-known bismuth-based copper-oxide superconductor.
