'Pinning down' how salty droplets dry

( Tokyo Metropolitan University) Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have discovered a new way of controlling the drying patterns formed by re-crystallizing salt. They found that the coffee ring effect can be used to pin the edge of drying droplets, creating a range of different geometric patterns. The same principles may be applied to understand and improve the adhesion of printer ink to surfaces and the manufacture of film-based devices.

For critically ill patients on life support, CSU chemistry could help them survive

( Colorado State University) CSU Monfort Professor and Associate Professor of Chemistry Melissa Reynolds is sharing in a $3.4 million grant from the Department of Defense for developing better treatments for acute lung injuries, particularly in the context of military combat and medical emergencies. She has teamed with Dr. Andriy Batchinsky, a trauma surgeon who oversees research laboratories at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research and the Geneva Foundation.

Dr. Boukrina of Kessler Foundation examines reading deficit treatments after stroke

( Kessler Foundation) Olga Boukrina, PhD, research scientist in Stroke Rehabilitation Research at Kessler Foundation, has received a $10,000 grant from the Mabel H. Flory Charitable Trust.

NASA sees areas of strength in Tropical Storm Trami

( NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite provided an infrared look at Tropical Storm Trami, located just over 100 miles from Guam on Sept. 21, 2018. Infrared data provides temperature information that showed two areas of the highest, coldest cloud tops and most powerful storms within the tropical storm.

New battery gobbles up carbon dioxide

( Massachusetts Institute of Technology) New technology developed at MIT could use carbon dioxide captured from power plants to make a new kind of lithium battery.

Space-related start-up technology companies create synergistic innovation

( Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) Researchers have developed innovative business models underlying the successful launch of space-related start-up technology companies in Costa Rica.

MSU-Spectrum Health researchers identify new genetic disorder

( Spectrum Health) Researchers from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and physicians from Spectrum Health have identified for the first time in a human patient a genetic disorder only previously described in animal models.

Carnegie Mellon biologist receives NSF 'Understanding Rules of Life' grant

( Carnegie Mellon University) The Department of Biological Sciences' Dannie Durand is one of 29 recipients of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) 'Understanding the Rules of Life' grants. The grants are part of a $15 million investment by the NSF to address some of the greatest challenges to understanding the living world.

Brown researchers teach computers to see optical illusions

( Brown University) By making a neural-network computer model that can be fooled by optical illusions like humans, the researchers advanced knowledge of the human visual system and may help improve artificial vision.

Scientists have discovered how to predict life of implants without animal testing

( National University of Science and Technology MISIS) An international team of researchers consisting of scientists from NUST MISIS and TU Dortmund University has developed a technology to study the behavior of orthopedic implants in laboratory conditions as close as possible to the human body. The technology is notable for its ethics: the research can be carried out in vitro -- that is, without involving lab animals. The research article has been published in the Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials.
