  • Molecular Event Mapping Opens Door to More Tests 'In Silico'

    Date: November 18, 2014

    Nanowerk (Honolulu, HI: 84,500 unique monthly visits) "Molecular event mapping opens door to more tests 'in silico'" November 18, 2014 A new approach to mapping and predicting the impact of chemical compounds in the body, which it is hoped could eventually reduce the need for toxicity tests in animals, has been trialed by scientists. … To prove the point, the new research, reported in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology ("Defining Molecular Initiating Events in the Adverse Outcome Pathway Framework ...

  • Forget Perovskite, We’re Talking Iron Pyrite For Low Cost Solar Power

    Date: November 19, 2014

    Clean Technica (682,000 unique monthly visits) "Forget Perovskite, We’re Talking Iron Pyrite For Low Cost Solar Power" November 19, 2014 Actually, don’t forget perovskite. We’ve been fangirling over perovskite all year as a new pathway to low cost solar power, and we’re not going to give it the old heave-ho just because some new kid shows up. However, this thing about iron pyrite just sailed across our radar for the first time in five years so naturally we ...

  • Research Team Developing Injectable Treatment for Soldiers Wounded in Battle

    Date: November 19, 2014

    Phys.Org (Tilburg, Netherlands: 1.8 million unique monthly visits) "Research team developing injectable treatment for soldiers wounded in battle" November 19, 2014 Internal bleeding is a leading cause of death on the battlefield, but a new, injectable material developed by team of researchers from Texas A&M University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could buy wounded soldiers the time they need to survive by preventing blood loss from serious internal injuries. … The team's findings are detailed in the ...

  • Paper Electronics Could Make Health Care More Accessible

    Date: November 19, 2014

    Phys.Org (Tilburg, Netherlands: 1.8 million unique monthly visits) "Paper electronics could make health care more accessible" November 19, 2014 Flexible electronic sensors based on paper—an inexpensive material—have the potential to some day cut the price of a wide range of medical tools, from helpful robots to diagnostic tests. Scientists have now developed a fast, low-cost way of making these sensors by directly printing conductive ink on paper. They published their advance in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. View the article ...
