Newswise: Scientists at ESS, Swedish Water Research, ORNL use VISION to look at common contaminant for cleaner water applications

Scientists at ESS, Swedish Water Research, ORNL use VISION to look at common contaminant for cleaner water applications

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Monika Hartl from the European Spallation Source is using neutron scattering at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Spallation Neutron Source to understand how plastic materials interact with the filters used to remove them from water. Through understanding these interactions, scientists can develop improved water filters that are better at purifying water and reducing water contaminants.

Newswise: New ORNL AI tool revolutionizes process for matching cancer patients with clinical trials

New ORNL AI tool revolutionizes process for matching cancer patients with clinical trials

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A team of researchers from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) Health Data Sciences Institute (HDSI) have harnessed the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to better match cancer patients with clinical trials. The researchers were one of ten teams to develop a digital tool to address complex challenges relevant to medical conditions such as cancer and Lyme disease as part of The Opportunity Project (TOP) Health Sprint, a 14-week effort sponsored by the Census Bureau, coordinated by the Department of Health and Human Services, and led by two Presidential Innovation Fellows.

Newswise: Research Shows Frogs Can Adapt To Traffic Noise

Research Shows Frogs Can Adapt To Traffic Noise

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Frogs don’t like living near noisy highways any better than people do, but research from Vanderbilt suggests that frogs, like hardened city-dwellers, can learn to adapt to the constant din of rumbling trucks, rolling tires and honking horns. And, just like those urbanites who can’t get a good night’s sleep without the sporadic sounds of sirens, some frogs have grown accustomed to the rattle and hum of the highway.

Helping Patients Breathe During Dangerous Procedure Prevents Life-Threatening Complications

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Thousands of Americans die each year during a dangerous two-minute procedure to insert a breathing tube. Now a Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) study in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) is showing that using bag-mask ventilation, squeezing air from a bag into the mouth for 60 seconds to help patients’ breathing, improves outcomes and could potentially save lives.
