Prenatal alcohol exposure is the largest preventable cause of developmental disabilities in the United States. Christie Petrenko discusses her research and clinical interventions with children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and their families.
Experiments have created the conditions capable of producing a fusion yield that’s five times higher than the current record laser-fusion energy yield. The new work represents an important advance in a long-standing national research initiative to develop fusion as an energy source.
Headquartered in Rochester, Carestream is now collaborating with engineering and medical researchers across the University on several new technologies aimed at diagnosing tendon damage and aortic blockages.
When the highly anticipated findings from the Japan-based T2K neutrino experiment were finally presented at the International Conference on High Energy Physics this month, it was Rochester graduate student Konosuke (Ko) Iwamoto who updated the physics world on the puzzle behind the imbalance between matter and antimatter.
