X-ray Imaging Provides Clues to Fracture in Solid-State Batteries

Georgia Institute of Technology

Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have used X-ray computed tomography (CT) to visualize in real time how cracks form near the edges of the interfaces between materials in solid-state batteries. The findings could help researchers find ways to improve the energy storage devices.

UC San Diego Chemists Take Aim at Drug Predictions

University of California San Diego

Chemists at UC San Diego present a promising method for easing the synthesis and evaluation of the algorithms, chemistry and technology needed to predict the bound poses of ligands within a targeted protein—a necessity for the design of new drug therapies.

Researchers discover new way to discriminate between mutations responsible for promoting cancer growth and those that are not

University of California, Irvine

Until now, researchers believed recurrent mutations (hotspot mutations) in cancer tumors were the important mutations (driver mutations) that promoted cancer progression. A new University of California, Irvine-led study indicates this is not always true.

Using Machine Learning to Create More Capable Capacitors

University of California San Diego

Capacitors, given their high energy output and recharging speed, could play a major role in powering the machines of the future, from electric cars to cell phones. However, the biggest hurdle for capacitors as energy storage devices is that they store much less energy than a similar-sized battery. Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology are tackling that problem by using supercomputers and machine learning techniques to ultimately find ways to build more capable capacitors.

NIH Funds Creation of New Lab Model for TB/HIV Research

Texas Biomedical Research Institute

When people suffer from both HIV and TB, it creates “one of the biggest health problems in the world,” according to Texas Biomed Assistant Professor Smita Kulkarni, Ph.D. Now, the National Institutes of Health is funding a two-year study by Texas Biomed scientists developing a lab model that mimics the early stages of the co-infection of these two diseases.

Pathway discovered that prevents buildup of Alzheimer’s protein

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have discovered a pathway that functions like a car wash to prevent the buildup of a toxic protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The report appeared online today in the journal Cell.

One Simple Change Cut Unnecessary Imaging for Cancer Patients in Half

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Introducing a default physician order — a “nudge” — into electronic health records (EHRs) cut the use of unnecessary daily imaging in half during palliative radiation therapy sessions for patients with advanced cancer

Low-Carb ‘Keto’ Diet (‘Atkins-Style’) May Modestly Improve Cognition in Older Adults

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a pilot study of 14 older adults with mild cognitive problems suggestive of early Alzheimer’s disease, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report that a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet may improve brain function and memory.
