Cutting-edge research at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University aims to stop cancer's adaptive behavior to boost the effectiveness of current treatments
If you have an interest in anything in the world, then you have an interest in chemistry because everything you hear, see, taste, smell and touch involves chemistry and chemicals. Our ability to understand the chemical make-up of things and chemical reactions has led to everything from modern food and drugs to plastics and computers.
We asked Belinda Pastrana, chief executive officer of Protein Dynamic Solutions, why do some scientists commercialize their research and become entrepreneurs?
This technology would enable communities to produce their own water filters using biomass nanofibers
On this episode of "Naked and Amazing," researchers discover that naked mole rats may have a hidden secret that could help improve life for millions of people all over the globe!
Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENG) convert mechanical energy harvested from the environment to electricity for powering small devices such as sensors or for recharging consumer electronics
New research by Florida State University Professor Thomas Albrecht-Schmitt shows that plutonium doesn't exactly work the way scientists thought it did
Reeja Jayan of the Far From Equilibrium Materials Lab at Carnegie Mellon University makes plastics conduct electricity, uses fabric to sense gluten and wants buildings themselves to store energy
Prince Rupert's Drops are small glass structures resembling tadpoles that can withstand the blows of a hammer, yet burst into powdery dust if their threadlike tails break
Research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) has solved a major complaint from athletes--uncomfortable mouth guards
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by unpredictable, recurrent seizures that can pose a risk to a patient's safety
The Mechanics of Slender Structures lab at Boston University aims to answer the question, "How do objects change shape?"
Anish Tuteja and his research group have created a self-healing, water-repellent spray-on coating
Wolbachia is the most successful parasite the world has ever known, except you've never heard of it because it only infects bugs
A team of three scientists from Kansas State University, Michigan State University and the Desert Botanical Garden are investigating polyploidy (the condition of having more than one set of chromosomes) and diversity in the plant genus Phlox (Polemoniaceae).
In this week's episode, we learn about marine mammals' need for speed, magnify a new tool combating mosquito-borne disease, break down new materials inspired by kirigami, and finally, discover new hydrothermal vents. Check it out!
Made up of trillions of individual bacterial cells, cell parts, viruses and other microbes, the germ bubble we all live in is actually more like an invisible germ cloud.
Cells move and migrate to new locations in the bodies of developing animals, an important step for the correct formation and function of organs. The research featured in this video uses a simple genetic model, the fruit fly, to investigate how cells move as organized groups within the animal. This video is part of a series produced by students at Kansas State University.
In particle physics, there are many different types of particles, mostly ending with the phrase "-on." Don Lincoln a senior physicist at Fermilab talks about fermions and bosons and what is the key difference between these two particles.
In this video, Fermilab's Don Lincoln explains the pros and cons of building an accelerator that collides pairs of protons to one that collides electrons.
Before you stuff your face with candy until you max out this Halloween, ask yourself how much is too much.
