Newswise: In acoustic waves, engineers break reciprocity with ‘spacetime-varying metamaterials’

In acoustic waves, engineers break reciprocity with ‘spacetime-varying metamaterials’

University at Buffalo

Working in an emerging field known to as “spacetime-varying metamaterials,” University at Buffalo engineers have demonstrated the ability to break reciprocity in acoustic waves. The NSF-sponsored research could have implications in communications, medicine and other fields.

New Computational Tools Identify Alternative Splicing Changes in Aggressive Cancers

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A multi-institutional group of researchers led by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has linked a strong cancer driver gene to changes in proteins that regulate alternative splicing. The researchers created new computational tools and biological model systems for the study. This collaborative research, led by Yi Xing, PhD, at CHOP and Owen Witte, MD, at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), was published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Newswise: Sudden Cardiac Death Often A Woman's First Sign of Heart Disease

Sudden Cardiac Death Often A Woman's First Sign of Heart Disease

Cedars-Sinai

New research from the Center for Cardiac Arrest Prevention at the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai shows that rates of sudden cardiac arrest are rising following decades of a downward trend. While this disturbing uptick was observed in both sexes, in women the increase was mostly among those whose sudden cardiac arrest was the first manifestation of heart disease. In men, the increase was mostly among those with known heart disease.
