  • Researchers are using organ-on-a-chip technology to design a microenvironment of human microvascular cells to test how radiation could affect human respiration. These non-irradiated cells have successfully grown and stretched to cover the upper and lower surfaces of the researchers’ new design.

  • Through quantum and molecular computing programs, researchers identified collector molecules that preferentially bind to metal ions on the surface of bastnaesite, a rare earth element that is important for energy and technology applications. The discovery could improve bastnaesite recovery and potentially lower mining costs.
