In the past, scientists typically avoided linking individual weather events to climate change, citing the challenges of teasing apart human influence from the natural variability of the weather. But that is changing. Credit: © Andrey Kuzmin / Fotolia After an unusually intense heat wave, downpour or drought, Noah Diffenbaugh and his research group inevitably receive

Dogs in the study.

Dogs who showed little to no aggression towards their housemates were more likely to automatically follow each other

This is a schematic representation of the monolithically integrated SiPV-LIB device and the electrochemical performance of the bipolar LIB.

This newly-developed power source is designed to work under

A team of University of Pennsylvania neuroscientists showed for the first time that electrical stimulation delivered when memory is predicted to fail can improve memory function in the human brain. Here, the blue dots indicate overall electrode placement; the yellow dot (top-right corner) indicates the electrode used to stimulate the subject’s brain to increase memory

Optogenetics utilizes methods where light can be used to control cellular functions.

Laser light can be seen scattered by nanoparticles in a solution of the UTSW-developed nanovaccine. Credit: UT Southwestern. Researchers from UT Southwestern Medical Center have developed a first-of-its-kind nanoparticle vaccine immunotherapy that targets several different cancer types. The nanovaccine consists of tumor antigens — tumor proteins that can be recognized by the immune system —

This image shows a wax worm chewing a hole through plastic. Polyethylene debris can be seen attached to the caterpillar.

That’s certainly true of the trillion polyethylene plastic bags that people use each and every year. But researchers

In her lab at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Pamela Weathers, professor of biology and biotechnology, has developed several high-producing cultivars of the plant Artemisia annua, which she propagates using tissue culture. The plants are used in research that has shown that a therapy using dried, powered leaves of Artemisia annua is an effective and low-cost

New data from NASA’s Cassini, Voyager and Interstellar Boundary Explorer missions show that the heliosphere — the bubble of the sun’s magnetic influence that surrounds the inner solar system — may be much more compact and rounded than previously thought. This illustration shows a compact model of the heliosphere, supported by this latest data. The

Obesity results in as much as 47% more life-years lost than tobacco, and tobacco caused similar life-years lost as high blood pressure.
