Guarding against a devastating tropical disease

Morgridge Institute for Research

Schistosomiasis is one of the most devastating tropical diseases in the world, second only to malaria in its prevalence. The only treatment currently used is extremely limited in its effectiveness and in who it can help. The Newmark Lab wants to develop something that protects people from being infected in the first place.

Secondary surgery does not improve overall survival for recurrent ovarian cancer patients

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center reported that secondary tumor-reduction, or cytoreduction, surgery followed by chemotherapy did not result in longer survival than chemotherapy alone in patients with platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian cancer.

Newswise: A New Parallel Strategy for Tackling Turbulence on Summit

A New Parallel Strategy for Tackling Turbulence on Summit

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A team at Georgia Tech created a new turbulence algorithm optimized for the Summit supercomputer. It reached a performance of less than 15 seconds of wall-clock time per time step for more than 6 trillion grid points—a new world record surpassing the prior state of the art in the field for the size of the problem.

Can a UNICORN Outrun Earthquakes?

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A UTokyo team transformed its UNICORN code into an AI-like algorithm to more quickly simulate a tectonic plate deformation that leads to earthquakes. The team ran UNICORN at 416 petaflops and gained a 75-fold speedup from a previous state-of-the-art solver using the Summit supercomputer.

How cells decide when to accept extracellular packages

Cornell University

Endocytosis, a fundamental process that cells use to take in macromolecules, functions a lot like an airlock on a spaceship – but squishier, says Dr. Gunther Hollopeter, assistant professor of molecular medicine at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.
