Researchers reach milestone in use of nanoparticles to kill cancer with heat

( Oregon State University) Researchers have developed an improved technique for using magnetic nanoclusters to kill hard-to-reach tumors.

Tool dearches EHR data to find child leukemia patients for clinical studies

( Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) Researchers who analyzed data in the electronic health records of children seen by hematology/oncology specialists at three large medical centers have developed an algorithm to accurately identify appropriate pediatric oncology patients for future clinical studies. By expediting and refining the selection of patients for research, the researchers aim to ultimately improve outcomes for a variety of pediatric cancers

UTA's Kermanshachi selected as 2019 Rising Star in civil engineering

( University of Texas at Arlington) Sharareh (Sherri) Kermanshachi has been selected as a 2019 Rising Stars in Civil + Structural Engineering.

UTA urban studies experts creating 'vision for growth' for Fort Worth's medical district

( University of Texas at Arlington) Urban studies researchers at The University of Texas at Arlington are constructing a strategic development plan for Fort Worth's Medical Innovation District.

Robot arm tastes with engineered bacteria

( University of California - Davis) A robotic gripping arm that uses engineered bacteria to 'taste' for a specific chemical has been developed by engineers at UC Davis and Carnegie Mellon University. The gripper is a proof-of-concept for biologically-based soft robotics.

Cost effective, large scale graphene with AIXTRON systems

( Graphene Flagship) From prototypes to products: AIXTRON's new systems enable cost-effective and large-scale production of graphene and related materials by chemical vapor deposition. Today, Graphene Flagship industrial partner AIXTRON showcased two new systems that enable cost-effective graphene production for a myriad of applications -- such as consumer electronics, sensors, and photonics. The new devices allow the production of graphene under ambient conditions, and bring the cost of graphene films down by two orders of magnitude.

2019 ACM SIGMOD/PODS conference to highlight the critical role of data management

( Association for Computing Machinery) As advanced technologies continue to proliferate across geographies and industries, data management has become increasingly critical to ensuring that such innovations reach their maximum potential and provide a net benefit to society.

Scientists developing way to help premature babies breathe easier

( Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center) Researchers suggest a possible cell-based therapy to stimulate lung development in fragile premature infants who suffer from a rare condition called Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD), which in the most severe cases can lead to lifelong breathing problems and even death. Scientists report in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine they studied genetic signatures in donated human neonatal lungs by using single-cell RNA sequencing analysis and mouse models of BPD.

Academic reviewers to now more easily receive credit for their work

( PLOS) PLOS today announced that its collaboration with ORCID now includes credit for reviewers. For more than 5 years, PLOS authors have used ORCID to make their professional lives easier. Now reviewers at PLOS can take advantage of the same benefits to track their contributions, claim credit, and build up their research profiles.

A better way to encapsulate islet cells for diabetes treatment

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT researchers have come up with a novel way to prevent fibrosis, which can lead to rejection of implantable medical devices, by incorporating a crystallized immunosuppressant drug into the devices. After implantation, the drug is slowly and locally secreted to dampen the immune response in the area immediately surrounding the device for a period of years.
