Media Tip: A new blueprint for designing high-performance batteries
Argonne National Laboratory

A team of scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory have discovered an intriguing ​“cooperative” behavior among components in batteries that points to an exciting new approach to designing next-generation technologies. The team found that combining two different types of anions, negatively charged ions, with cations, positively charged ions, can significantly improve the overall battery’s performance.

Media Tip: Cathode innovation makes sodium-ion battery an attractive option for electric vehicles
Argonne National Laboratory

The U.S, Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory researchers have invented and patented a new cathode material that could pave the way for eco- and budget-friendly electric vehicles. The material is inspired by earlier work at Argonne that led to the lithium-ion batteries in the Chevy Volt and Bolt. It could help the supply of low-cost and abundant elements for electric vehicle batteries.

Why a Targeted Therapy Is Better Than Immunotherapy For Some Patients With Inoperable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Yale Cancer Center/Smilow Cancer Hospital

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation, tends not to respond well to immunotherapy treatments, including durvalumab. However, Yale Cancer Center (YCC) researchers recently reported in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology that the targeted therapy osimertinib, when administered after chemotherapy and radiation, is associated with significantly improved progression-free survival (living without the cancer worsening).

Novel Immunotherapy Selectively Targets Malignant T Cells
Yale Cancer Center/Smilow Cancer Hospital

One major hurdle in the development of safe and effective immunotherapies has been the risk of depleting healthy T cells during CAR-T treatment that seeks out and kills cancerous T-cells. In a new study published in Nature Communications, Yale Cancer Center researchers have developed a novel CAR-T cell therapy designed to efficiently kill cancerous T cells while leaving most healthy cells intact.
