  • Secure nano-carrier delivers medications directly...
    on September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

    (Technical University of Munich (TUM)) Medications often have unwanted side-effects. One reason is that they reach not only the unhealthy cells for which they are intended, but also reach and have an impact on healthy cells. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), working together with the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, have developed a stable nano-carrier for medications. A special mechanism makes sure the drugs are only released in diseased cells.

  • Spin clean-up method brings practical quantum...
    on September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

    (Osaka City University) Researchers at Osaka City University create a quantum algorithm that removes spin contaminants while making chemical calculations on quantum computers. This allows for predictions of electronic and molecular behavior with degrees of precision not achievable with classical computers and paves the way for practical quantum computers to become a reality.

  • Machine learning takes on synthetic biology:...
    on September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

    (DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) Scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed a new tool that adapts machine learning algorithms to the needs of synthetic biology to guide development systematically. The innovation means scientists will not have to spend years developing a meticulous understanding of each part of a cell and what it does in order to manipulate it.

  • FSU researchers help develop sustainable polymers
    on September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

    (Florida State University) Researchers at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering have made new discoveries on the effects of temperature on sustainable polymers. Their findings may help the industry to produce plastics that are better for the environment.

  • Potential drug target for dangerous E. coli...
    on September 25, 2020 at 4:00 am

    (University of New South Wales) Treatment for a deadly E. coli strain may be possible in the future, after UNSW Sydney researchers identify a new molecular pathway that controls the potent Shiga toxin.
