Detecting blood clot risk using biomarkers

17-Mar-2017

Cancer is one of the hardest medical conditions to overcome, and for those who do so, the battle often does not stop at remission. Many cancers predispose patients to develop blood clots, particularly patients who are diagnosed at a late stage, which often complicates their treatment and reduces ...

Researchers develop groundbreaking process for creating ultra-selective separation membranes

17-Mar-2017

A team of researchers, led by the University of Minnesota, has developed a groundbreaking one-step, crystal growth process for making ultra-thin layers of material with molecular-sized pores. Researchers demonstrated the use of the material, called zeolite nanosheets, by making ultra-selective ...

New driver, target in advanced mucosal melanoma

16-Mar-2017

Not all melanomas are created equal. While most melanomas appear on the skin as the result of sun exposure, a small subset of melanomas arise spontaneously from mucosal tissues. And while targeted treatments and immunotherapies have dramatically improved the prognosis for many patients with ...

New electron source for materials analysis

16-Mar-2017

How can solar cells be made more efficient? How can solar and wind energy be best stored for later use? Technologies for the transformation of the German energy sector (Energiewende) require tailor-made materials which are both affordable and efficient. One important tool in the search for such ...

When proteins court each other, the dance moves matter

16-Mar-2017

At every moment inside the human body, a carefully choreographed dance is being performed. Proteins shake their bodies and wave their limbs, all with the goal of optimizing their interaction with other molecules, including other proteins. These tiny motions, called vibrations, enable the ...

Mapping the effects of crystal defects

16-Mar-2017

New research offers insights into how crystal dislocations -- a common type of defect in materials -- can affect electrical and heat transport through crystals, at a microscopic, quantum mechanical level. Dislocations in crystals are places where the orderly three-dimensional structure of a ...

Atomic map of malaria drug gives it new life

15-Mar-2017

Researchers have mapped how the malaria drug mefloquine works, providing a route to make effective alternatives and combat rising drug resistance. Malaria is caused by a family of parasites carried by certain mosquito species, leading to an estimated half a million deaths each year. There are ...

Spin-resolved oscilloscope for charge and spin signals

15-Mar-2017

Researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation have developed a "spin-resolved oscilloscope." This device is a basic measuring instrument for plasmonics and spintronics, which are key technologies for future electronics applications. The coupling ...

Transport proteins suprisingly evolved long before their compounds emerged

14-Mar-2017

As in an arms race plants constantly develop new toxic compounds to protect themselves against herbivores and diseases - and as in war, mobility is important. Therefore, plants evolved transport proteins to efficiently and timely concentrate toxic defense compounds where they are needed the ...

Small nanoparticles have surprisingly big effects on polymer nanocomposites

10-Mar-2017

Polymer nanocomposites mix particles billionths of a meter (nanometers, nm) in diameter with polymers, which are long molecular chains. Often used to make injection-molded products, they are common in automobiles, fire retardants, packaging materials, drug-delivery systems, medical devices, ...
