In infection diseases, membrane fouling, interaction with bacteria, as well as in rapid healing of wounds for example, the way proteins interact with a surface plays an important role. On a surface, t...
A fall down the stairs, a car crash, a sports injury or an explosive blast can all cause traumatic brain injury (TBI). Patients often recover. But in the days or weeks following the hit, they can deve...
A recent study by researchers at the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center took them to a not-so-likely destination: local farmers markets. They went in search of fresh ginger root.
The surface could be used in applications like ultrathin light modulators, biosensors, flexible optoelectronics and photodetectors.
A new technique can transport drug-loaded nanoliposomes into solid cancers.
Experiments show that "dislocation glide" dominates quasicrystal deformation.
-Scientists sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) have genetically modified a common soil bacteria to create electrical wires that not only conduct electricity, but are thousands of times th...
