Geophysicist John Tarduno has taken a group of University students to southern Africa and Australia this summer to follow up on a pair of groundbreaking findings that he had published last year on the strength and direction of Earth’s magnetic field. The students are live-tweeting from their research sites, sending photos from the field.
Using the spring force produced by light circulating in a miniaturized resonator, a team of engineering researchers from the University of Rochester and the University of Victoria has discovered a new approach to detecting single particles.
Rochester researchers working on the next generation of quantum information processing have received a $2 million boost from the National Science Foundation.
The brain uses a “just in time” system for delivering the oxygen that fuels nerve cells. These findings from the University’s Center for Translational Neuromedicine could shed light on the cognitive decline that accompanies diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Terahertz (THz) waves are capable of sensing and imaging objects behind barriers, making them a promising tool for Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies.
A new study shows that the polar seas are much better than other regions of the ocean at trapping carbon from marine plankton.
Patients carrying certain mutations that cause long QT syndrome, a rare cardiac rhythm disorder, have an increased risk for developing seizures, according to a new study from the Medical Center. The study is the first to demonstrate a link between LQTS and seizures.
Golisano Children’s Hospital is joining one of the largest family-based obesity studies ever conducted, focusing on treatment that teaches both a child and their parents how to change behaviors and attitudes on food, exercise, and stress.
While many signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are present before age two, the majority of children with ASD are not diagnosed until after age four. Medical Center researchers have identified a simple test to screen younger children for hearing deficiencies associated with autism.
