Researchers invent nanoparticle that could improve treatment for bone defects

A team of biomaterials scientists and dentists at the UCLA School of Dentistry has developed a nanoparticle that, based on initial experiments in animals, could improve treatment for bone defects. A paper describing the advance...
Researchers use artificial intelligence to strengthen power grid resiliency

Researchers use artificial intelligence to strengthen power grid resiliency

America's power grid system is not only large but dynamic, which makes it especially challenging to manage. Human operators know how to maintain systems when conditions are static. But when conditions change quickly, due...

Study: A tiny ancient relative of dinosaurs and pterosaurs discovered

Dinosaurs and flying pterosaurs may be known for their remarkable size, but a newly described species from Madagascar that lived around 237 million years ago suggests that they originated from extremely small ancestors. The...

Study: Telephone interventions could be used to reduce symptoms of cancer

Telephone interventions could be used to successfully treat symptoms of cancer such as fatigue, depression and anxiety, new research in the Cochrane Library reports. This could help patients receive the care they need during...
Scientists reveal safeguarding of key DNA sensor in innate immune system

Scientists reveal safeguarding of key DNA sensor in innate immune system

UNC-Chapel Hill researchers have, for the first time, determined the high-resolution structure of a key DNA-sensing protein in the innate immune system called cGAS while it is bound to the nucleosome - the all-important...
Study: Seafood helped prehistoric people migrate out of Africa

Study: Seafood helped prehistoric people migrate out of Africa

Prehistoric pioneers could have relied on shellfish to sustain them as they followed migratory routes out of Africa during times of drought, a new study suggests. The study examined fossil reefs near to the now-submerged...
Researchers identify gene family key to unlocking vertebrate evolution

Researchers identify gene family key to unlocking vertebrate evolution

New University of Colorado Boulder-led research finds that the traits that make vertebrates distinct from invertebrates were made possible by the emergence of a new set of genes 500 million years ago, documenting an...

Plant A Pollinator Garden To Supply Food Sources After Freeze, says new research

Pollinators serve a great purpose in helping pollinate plants and vegetables alike during many months of the year. Although wildflowers returned post-freeze, and many plants are beginning to show life again, most flowering was...
