The combinatorial future of cancer treatment approaches the clinic with incredible momentum and promises to provide excellent outcomes (and a higher price tag) for patients everywhere. The new […]

New research suggests that carbon nanotube technology may be used to create more effective water filtration systems. Image Credit: Flickr user Joscarfas Early in 2017, materials science researchers from the Rochester Institute of Technology published a study in Environmental Science Water: Research and Technology, describing a new class of carbon […]

Quasiparticles may hold the key to understanding the quantum scale mechanisms that explain macroscale movements. Image Source: Flickr User: NASA Goddard Photo and Video Understanding how superfluid helium (liquid helium with zero viscosity) interacts with other molecules has been a formidable challenge. After decades of jumping hurdles, researchers have determined […]

Specialized service providers in the oil industry can help large companies prepare to expand offshore drilling across international borders. Image Credit: Flickr user Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement A shift toward deepwater drilling on an international scale is an expected industry trend for 2017. Some of the oil industry’s […]

Sunlight is a great energy source that researchers are attempting to harness through artificial photosynthesis. Image Source: Flickr User: Brian Tomlinson Sunlight drives seemingly impossible chemical reactions in plants. Carbon dioxide and water spontaneously react during photosynthesis to produce sugar and oxygen. Scientists have attempted to artificially replicate this process, […]
