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.
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 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.
Thirty percent of the refugees the U.S. takes in every year are children. A new Medical Center study shows that the developmental screenings recommended by pediatricians don’t always translate to other cultures.
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.
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.
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.
