Scientists at NYU Langone Medical Center have discovered the mechanisms behind a genetic change known to cause a set of related diseases.
A mathematical model that predicts how water condenses around tiny particles could help to improve chemical industrial processes, including the production of drug tablets, fertilizers and catalysts.READ MORE
An adsorbent that can selectively capture soluble organic contaminants in water has been developed. This water treatment is a fluorine-based nanoporous polymer that can selectively remove water-soluble micromolecules.READ MORE
Cutting-edge nanoscience has been combined with a magnetic phenomenon discovered more than 170 years ago to create a method for speedy medical tests. The discovery, if commercialized, could lead to faster test results for HIV, Lyme disease, syphilis, rotavirus and other infectious conditions.READ MORE
The type of sugar you eat, and not just the calorie count, may determine your risk for chronic disease. A new study is the first of its kind to compare the effects of two types of sugar on metabolic and vascular functionREAD MORE
To unravel how intricate waste biomass converts to biofuels, a Cornell professor studied the bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum to decipher its metabolism. Understanding the bacterium’s sugar-processing complexities may lead to improved biofuel yields.READ MORE
