The reluctance of oil and water to mix together and stay that way is so well-known that it has become a cliché for describing any two things that do not go together well
Medical Sciences advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, but they also help us prevent disease in the first place. Too numerous to name, the medical sciences continuously make miraculous breakthroughs that extend lifetimes and expand our ability to experience life.
National Science Foundation-funded researchers at the University of Michigan have developed a technique that can print pure, ultra-precise doses of drugs onto a wide variety of surfaces
Using an ultrafast, ultraprecise laser, a team of physicists and biologists at Vanderbilt University has taken an important step toward understanding how wound healing is triggered
One of the two brain-training methods most scientists use in research is significantly better in improving memory and attention, Johns Hopkins University researchers found
A research team at the University of Washington is developing the first smartphone app capable of detecting concussions and other traumatic brain injuries right on the sideline
A National Science Foundation-funded research team at Florida State University says current zoned boarding procedures might play a key role in spreading disease
In this week's episode, we discover why some bumblebees are in peril and that some of the earliest primates were adept leapers. We also explore a new technique that can print drugs, and learn about a new app capable of detecting concussions right on the sideline
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
Pictures of cookies, pizza and ice cream distract people from work twice as much as seeing healthy food, concludes a new Johns Hopkins University study
Elidah, a small business funded by the National Science Foundation, created a medical device to help women with stress urinary incontinence -- the inability to control the urge to urinate -- a condition which impacts about 1 in 3 women
With support from the National Science Foundation, Ragib Hasan of The University of Alabama at Birmingham is retrofitting everyday objects with next generation, highly secure, personal cloud computing capability
Electric eels are among the animals considered "champion species" -- specialized organisms that can teach us fundamental lessons about biology, including how human brains and nerves function
A point-of-care device could enable early diagnosis and cut costs related to shipping samples, elaborate instrumentation and hiring of employees with high expertise
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that devices that run on almost zero power can transmit data across distances of up to 2.8 kilometers -- breaking a long-held barrier and potentially enabling a vast array of interconnected devices.
We asked Belinda Pastrana, chief executive officer of Protein Dynamic Solutions, why do some scientists commercialize their research and become entrepreneurs?
University of Washington researchers have developed a smartphone app that accurately measures jaundice in adults using a selfie and an accessory
A smart bandage being co-developed at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln uses wireless technology to speed up the healing process
Bioengineer Jeff Jacot is working on an idea that could transform the medical approach to infants with complex and sometimes fatal heart defects
This technology would enable communities to produce their own water filters using biomass nanofibers
The University of Delaware's Summer Workshop in Cognitive and Brain Sciences, funded by the National Science Foundation, engages students from across the U.S. in exploring the frontiers of brain research
