The New York Stem Cell Foundation Annual Conference

( New York Stem Cell Foundation) NYSCF's 12th Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference convenes global leaders in translational stem cell and neuroscience research to present their latest work towards new treatments and cures for the most devastating diseases and injuries currently facing the world. The two-day conference features discussions on transformative new technologies in the field, how to get new research into the clinic for patients, and challenges in the regenerative medicine field as well as disease area-specific panels.

BU researchers create tool to measure, control protein aggregation

( Boston University College of Engineering) In the cover article in the current issue of Cell, BU Biomedical Engineer Ahmad S. Khalil along with colleagues from MIT and the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, among others, describe the synthetic genetic tool they built to quantitatively sense, measure and manipulate protein aggregation in live cells. This may open the door to greater understanding and treatment of a range of maladies from Alzheimer's to type II diabetes.

Two ORNL-led research teams receive $10.5 million to advance quantum computing for science

( DOE/Oak Ridge National Laboratory) DOE's Office of Science has awarded two research teams, each headed by a member of ORNL's Quantum Information Science Group, more than $10 million over 5 years to both assess the feasibility of quantum architectures in addressing big science problems and to develop algorithms capable of harnessing the massive power predicted of quantum computing systems. The two projects are intended to work in concert to ensure synergy across DOE's quantum computing research spectrum and maximize mutual benefits.

Superstorm Sandy five years later: How NJIT assisted with recovery efforts

( New Jersey Institute of Technology) Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy devastated the U.S. east coast, taking the lives of 34 New Jersey residents, destroying hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses, and causing over $62 billion in damage. The NJIT community responded to the disaster with immediate assistance and farsighted planning for the future.

Microfluidics probe 'cholesterol' of the oil industry

( Rice University) Rice University researchers employ microfluidic devices to show how and why dispersants are able to break up deposits of asphaltene that hinder the flow of crude oil in wellheads and pipelines.

NASA sees a new depression form after another fizzled

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The Northwestern Pacific Ocean generated another tropical depression hours after a different system quickly faded. NASA's Aqua satellite provided a look at Tropical Depression 27W after it developed about 300 miles from Chuuk. Earlier in the day, Tropical Depression 26W dissipated in the South China Sea.

SPIE partners with Code Ocean to connect code to journal articles in SPIE Digital Library

( Code Ocean) SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, now enables journal authors to share code through its new partnership with Code Ocean, an open platform that improves transparency and computational reproducibility to advance scientific research and invention. Authors use the simple interface to upload code where it is assigned a DOI to support correct attribution and citation. Articles include a link enabling users to access and run the code on the Code Ocean platform.

NASA-NOAA satellite sees Typhoon Lan's 50 nautical-mile wide eye

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead and captured an image of Typhoon Lan in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean and saw a well-organized storm with a clear eye that was 50 nautical miles in diameter.

Apixaban -- metabolism, pharmacologic properties and drug interactions

( Bentham Science Publishers) New oral anticoagulants (NOACs) represent direct-acting drugs functioning selectively for one specific clotting factor. Their clinical indications are the prophylaxis and treatment of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, the prevention of atherothrombotic episodes of individuals with acute coronary syndromes and atrial fibrillation
