Physicists have created a silicon nanocavity that allows light to be trapped 10 times longer than in other similarly-sized optical cavities. Nanocavities are key components of nanophotonics circuits.
Findings on the cellular-level regulation of proteins called histones by lipid droplets, or “fat depots,” shines light on chromosome production – and possible manipulation of that process.
In the recently-released 2014-2015 rankings, the service ranked 44th among 183 eligible pediatric centers. This is the sixth year in a row the team has earned a place on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals listing.

The new organizational structure applies to all of clinical and research programs in cancer, including its growing network of satellite locations. In addition, it announced a $30 million campaign to support cancer research.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded $500,000 to the Center for Emerging and Innovative Sciences to lead the development of a national roadmap for photonics.
A Medical Center study shows that disparities in coverage between whites and Hispanics persists despite the existence of the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan – also known as Part D – and the availability of assistance to help pay insurance premiums.
Investigation in mice shows that blocking the gene’s most important function can slow the disease and extend survival.
Results of a pilot project show that physicians can successfully harness the power of crowdsourcing to help diagnose and treat patients in real time using a mobile app.
