Researchers develop mathematical solver for analog computers

( University of Notre Dame) University of Notre Dame's Zoltán Toroczkai and collaborators have been working toward developing a novel mathematical approach that will help advance computation beyond the digital framework.

Studying how unconventional metals behave, with an eye on high-temperature superconductors

( Princeton University) By trapping atoms in a lattice of light, researchers explore how unconventional metals conduct electricity, with an eye toward understanding high-temperature superconductors

Marshall University study finds differences in umbilical cord blood metal levels in newborns

( Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine ) New findings from a team of Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine researchers reveal urban and rural differences in prenatal exposure to essential and toxic elements.

Two UT Austin engineers elected to National Academy of Inventors

( University of Texas at Austin) Hal Alper, professor in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering, and Alex Huang, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, have been selected as fellows in the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) for 2018.

UNLV study unlocks clues to how planets form

( University of Nevada, Las Vegas) UNLV researchers Shangjia Zhang and Zhaohuan Zhu led a team of international astronomers in a study that used the powerful ALMA telescope to discover that in other parts of the Milky Way Galaxy (seen here) there is potentially a large population of young planets -- similar in mass to Neptune or Jupiter -- at wide-orbit that are not detectable by other current planet searching techniques.

CU Anschutz to partner with Allen Institute for Immunology

( University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus) The Allen Institute today announced the launch of the Allen Institute for Immunology, a new division of the Institute that is dedicated to studying the human immune system. The new Institute will work directly with the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and other leading research organizations to understand the dynamic balancing act of the human immune system, how it senses friend from foe and what goes wrong when we're ill.

Crashes increase when speed limits dip far below engineering recommendation

( Penn State) Speed limits set only five miles per hour below engineering recommendations produce a statistically significant decrease in total, fatal and injury crashes, and property-damage-only crashes, according to a group of Penn State researchers.

A device that illuminates the invisible

( University of Delaware) Improved security for military operations and at airports, schools, sports venues, and other public spaces. A team of engineers at the University of Delaware has created a camera that acts as a portable body scanner. The scanner reads millimeter wavelengths, invisible to the eye, but highly reflective when they hit metal objects, even if buried under bulky clothing.

Helping the anti-parasitic medicine go down

( University of Leeds) An international team has developed a novel pharmaceutical formulation to administer triclabendazole -- an anti-parasitic drug used to treat a type of flatworm infection -- in billions of tiny capsules.

Researchers find clue to epidemics in 'bursty' social behavior

( NYU Tandon School of Engineering) Researchers from NYU Tandon School of Engineering and Politecnico di Torino, Italy, have developed a mathematical model that could cure the potential to underestimate how quickly diseases spread. The team discovered that current predictive models may miss the influence of a critical aspect of the social behavior of individuals called 'burstiness.'
