Next-generation endoscopes to diagnose cancer and high-power laser amplifiers for communications will be more feasible, thanks to University researchers whose work will be showcased at the Optical Society’s 100th annual meeting.
Medical Center researchers have shown for the first time how cancer-causing mutations control and alter the way cancer cells biosynthesize and replicate.
Francis Collins met with graduate students and junior researchers to discuss the importance of communicating science to the public and policymakers, and increasing diversity in biomedical research.
Rochester engineers have developed a simple theoretical model to calculate the force needed to move a rover across the ocean floor or through the granular terrain of other planets, for example, without having to run experiments to test those materials.
An award of $4.2 million from the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps Program will create a regional hub for research-driven commercialization and leverage the national network of I-Corps Nodes.
Neuroblastoma is one of the most common and deadly of childhood cancers, and Medical Center researchers have discovered that aggressive forms of the cancer contain a specific protein in their cells’ nuclei not found in more benign cases.
When Leslie Valiant delivered his 2011 Turing lecture, “it was one of the most scientifically inspiring speeches I have seen,” says Chen Ding, computer science professor and co-organizer of the 29th International Workshop on Languages and Compilers of Parallel Computing.
