This research explores the development of a lab-on-a-chip platform that integrates novel electronic, acoustic and magnetic components for comprehensive biophysical studies through cell interrogation
Wolbachia is the most successful parasite the world has ever known, except you've never heard of it because it only infects bugs
Carnegie-Mellon University assistant professor Aswin Sankaranarayanan talks about how his lab builds infrared cameras to take high-resolution images by studying how light interacts with materials.
How do you take dirty water and make it clean? With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), this team is hard at work designing nanometer-scale water filters that could soon make clean drinking water available and affordable for even the poorest of the poor around the world
The goal of researchers at the Center for Sustainable Polymers? Economically competitive and environmentally friendly polymers that outperform their traditional counterparts
Two University of Wyoming researchers led a voyage to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean and discovered five previously unknown active hydrothermal vents and a completely new vent site.
Imagine a future in which every home has an appliance that pulls all the water the household needs out of the air, even in dry or desert climates, using only the power of the sun
This film provides a glimpse at life in the near future based on cutting-edge research from Professor Maja Matari? of the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering.
The creature, named Teleocrater rhadinus, was a carnivorous animal that lived more than 245 million years ago during the Triassic Period, before dinosaurs.
Robots are about to transform how we live. Decades of science and engineering research (and lab time) are behind it.
In March 2014, the National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded the University of Missouri a $20 million grant as part of a multi-institutional consortium to study how corn maintains root growth during drought conditions.
NSF-funded research aiming to making it easier for humans to work directly with a robotic partner in applications such as physical therapy
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!
Marine geophysicist Donna Blackman from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography remembers Alvin's discovery of the Lost City hydrothermal vent field in 2000 and looks ahead to the people and tools that will take Alvin to even greater depths of discovery
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.
The SupraSensor device is designed to give farmers a highly accurate, virtually constant stream of data on nitrate levels. The device is an excellent example of highly applied science with roots in basic research -- in this case supramolecular chemistry at the University of Oregon.
A global research team has built five new synthetic yeast chromosomes, meaning that 30 percent of a key organism's genetic material has now been swapped out for engineered replacements. Jef Boeke discusses the importance of yeast as a research model and how new research may lead to synthetic genomes to address unmet needs in medicine and industry.
This video highlights development of a web-based, validated instrument to monitor, as the academic term progresses, student understanding of a wide range of introductory physics concepts.
